  1. Economic Partership Agreeements and Regional Integration: A Case Study of the Southern Africa Customs Union and the Southern African Development Community
    Mwanahawa, Aziza Khauhelo Mdee, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    In many respects, developing countries have sought regional integration (RI) as the device to propel them into a new era of development and economic prosperity. Within an African context, the importance of regrouping countries was further strengthened by the need to deconstruct the artificial border ...
  2. Kinship and its consequences in the cooperatively breeding Southern Pied Babbler Turdoides Bicolor
    Nelson-Flower, Martha J, 2009, University of Cape Town Libraries
    Cooperative breeding occurs when more than two individuals help to raise offspring that are not their own, and has been the focus of empirical and theoretical research for over forty years. Of central importance to this work are the fitness costs and benefits of helping, and the factors limiting the ...
  3. On Distance: From art history to Ernest Mancoba
    Ralphs, SCT, 2007, University of Cape Town Libraries
    In this thesis the central narratives of Western art history, specifically those related to modernism and African art, are considered in light of a climate of criticism concentrated over the past thirty years in Western and South African an historiography. In considering complexities of interpretati ...
  4. Combating piracy today â a comprehensive analysis of how to counter the menace of piracy using the example of attacks by Somali pirates around the Horn of Africa
    Resch, Thorste, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The increased number of Somali piratesâ attacks against ships off the coast of Somalia and in the Gulf of Aden in recent years has attracted special attention of the international community. Although the menace of piracy was believed to have largely disappeared in modern times, piracy remains a cons ...
  5. An investigation into the Use of Lumpy Skin Disease Virus as a Vaccine Vector for a Potential HIV-1 vaccine
    Shen, Yen-Ju, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    With 33.4 million people infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in 2008, HIV infection has developed into a serious global pandemic. The impact of the epidemic is most severe in developing countries, such as the countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, where social and economic conditions in these ...
  6. CAGED: a tool to investigate the relationship between gene expression and genome organizations in Arabidopsis thaliana
    Somers, Sachin J, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The distribution of genes in eukaryotic genomes is not random. Whole genome array experiments have shown that genes which are similarly expressed may cluster to form domains. These domains are identified by correlating gene expression across multiple experimental conditions. This analysis requires s ...
  7. Systematics of Notonemouridae (Plecoptera) of Southern Africa : Thesis
    Stevens, Duncan Mark, 2008, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The Plecoptera (stoneflies) is a minor, basal, aquatic order of the lower Neoptera, with about 3500 species worldwide, occurring on all continents except for Antarctica. Of the 16 extant families of Plecoptera, only two occur in southern Africa, namely the Perlidae and the Notonemouridae. The Gondwa ...
  8. Place of light": what cultural villages can tell us about "culture", "ethnicity" and tourism in post apartheid South Africa
    Tinker, Anna, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The ânewâ South Africa is abuzz with keywords. There is much talk within academic discourse and beyond of âethnicityâ, âcultureâ and the ârainbow nationâ among others. They are a national obsession at this crucial time when South Africa is still struggling to negotiate its identity. The usage of the ...
  9. Temporally periodic solitons of the parametrically driven, damped nonlinear Schrodinger equation.
    van Heerden, Thomas, 2010, University of Cape Town Libraries
    The purpose of this thesis is to study the behaviour of temporally periodic solitons of the parametrically driven, damped nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Previous authors have produced an outline of the behaviour using direct numerical simulations. We adopt a different approach, obtaining periodic s ...
