  • Coetzee, Martin Petrus Albertus; Kinge, T.R.; Mih, A.M. (CSIRO, 2012)
    Ganoderma is an important genus of the Polyporales in the tropics. Identification of tropical species has mainly been based on morphology, which has led to misidentification. This study aimed to elucidate the diversity ...
  • Bihon, Wubetu; Slippers, Bernard; Wingfield, Michael J.; Wingfield, Brenda D.; Burgess, Treena (Springer, 2012-01)
    Introduced populations of organisms typically have reduced diversity compared to those that are native. It is, therefore, unusual that introduced populations of the fungal tree pathogen Diplodia pinea have been shown ...
  • Greeff, Jaco M. (Jacobus Maree); Greeff, Francois A.; Greeff, Andre S.; Rinken, Lucas; Welgemoed, Dawid J.; Harris, Yolanda (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    Extrapair paternity is a crucial parameter for evolutionary explanations of reproductive behavior. Early studies and human testis size suggest that human males secure/suffer frequent extrapair paternity. If these high ...
  • Cowan, Don A.; De Maayer, Pieter (BioMed Central, 2016-11-14)
    BACKGROUND : Protein glycosylation involves the post-translational attachment of sugar chains to target proteins and has been observed in all three domains of life. Post-translational glycosylation of flagellin, the main ...
  • Myburg, Alexander Andrew; Grattapaglia, Dario; Vaillancourt, René E.; Shepherd, Merv; Thumma, Bala R.; Foley, William; Külheim, Carsten; Potts, Brad M. (Springer (open access), 2012-06)
    The status of genomics and genetics research in the Myrtaceae, a large family of dicotyledonous woody plants, is reviewed with Eucalyptus as the focal genus. The family contains over 5,650 species in 130 to 150 genera, ...

    Sorghum is the second most cultivated crop in Africa and is a staple food source of many African communities. Exploiting the associated plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) has potential as an agricultural biotechnology ...
  • Pillay, Kerry-Anne; Slippers, Bernard; Wingfield, Michael J.; Gryzenhout, Marieka (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    Species in the fungal family Botryosphaeriaceae are latent pathogens on woody trees. These fungi often have a wide host range, which can include native and introduced hosts in an area. Multi-locus DNA sequence identification on ...
  • Roux, Carl Z. (South African Society for Animal Science, 2016-10-27)
    The central postulation of the present approach to metabolic rate scaling is that exercise-induced maximum aerobic metabolic rate (MMR) is proportional to the fractal extent (V) of an animal. Total fractal extent can be ...
