Ecological niche modeling of the invasive potential of Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in African river systems: concerns and implications for the conservation of indigenous congenerics
This study applied ecological niche models to determine the potential invasive range of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, with a particular focus on river systems in southern Africa where it is now established and ...
Habitat-specific shaping of proliferation and neuronal differentiation in adult hippocampal neurogenesis of wild rodents
(Open Access Publishing, 2013-04)
Daily life of wild mammals is characterized by a multitude of attractive and aversive stimuli. The hippocampus processes complex polymodal information associated with such stimuli and mediates adequate behavioral responses. ...
A qualitative ecological risk assessment of the invasive Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus in a sub-tropical African river system (Limpopo River, South Africa)
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2013)
1. This study outlines the development of a qualitative risk assessment method and its application as a screening tool for determining the risk of establishment and spread of the invasive Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus ...
Calibrating a camera trap-based biased mark-recapture sampling design to survey the leopard population in the N'wanetsi concession, Kruger National Park, South Africa
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2013)
Estimating large carnivore abundance can be challenging. A biased leopard (Panthera pardus) population survey was conducted in the N’wanetsi concession in the Kruger National Park (KNP), South Africa, using motion-sensitive ...
The hippocampus of the eastern rock sengi: cytoarchitecture, markers of neuronal function, principal cell numbers, and adult neurogenesis
(Open Access Publishing, 2013-10)
The brains of sengis(elephant shrews, order Macroscelidae)have long been known to contain a hippocampus that in terms of allometric progression indices is larger than that of most primates and equal in size to that of ...
