ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The mounting threats to biodiversity and global alteration of habitat and species distributions make it increasingly necessary to consider evolutionary patterns in conservation decision-making. Yet there ...
Assessment of genomic diversity and population sub-structuring of kingklip (Genypterus capensis) off Southern Africa
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Kingklip (Genypterus capensis) represents a valuable marine resource for both South Africa and Namibia. Historical exploitation levels led to substantial declines in abundance, resulting in the species ...
Impacts of invasive birds: assessing the incidence and extent of hybridization between invasive Mallard Ducks (Anas platyrhynchos) and native Yellow-billed Ducks (Anas undulata) in South Africa
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2019-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Hybridization with invasive species is a major impact on native congeners, often leading to introgression and the loss of unique genotypes or co-adapted gene complexes. Therefore, hybridization needs ...
