  1. Voices of the hungry: a qualitative measure of household food access and food insecurity in South Africa
    Shackleton, Charlie, 2017
    South Africa is rated a food secure nation, but large numbers of households within the country have inadequate access to nutrient-rich diverse foods. The study sought to investigate households’ physical and economic access and availability of food, in relation to local context which influences house ...
  2. Community-based natural resource use and management of Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, Uganda, for livelihood benefits
    Shackleton, Charlie, 2017
    Conservation and sustainable management of wetlands requires participation of local stakeholders, including communities. The Bigodi Wetland is unusual because it is situated in a common property landscape but the local community has been running a successful community-based natural resource manageme ...
  3. The classsification of fuzzy subgroups of some finite Abelian p-groups of rank 3
    Appiah, Isaac Kwadwo, 2016, University of Fort Hare
    An important trend in fuzzy group theory in recent years has been the notion of classification of fuzzy subgroups using a suitable equivalence relation. In this dissertation, we have successfully used the natural equivalence relation defined by Murali and Makamba in [81] and a natural fuzzy isomorph ...
  4. Assessing the vulnerability of resource-poor households to disasters associated with climate variability using remote sensing and GIS techniques in the Nkonkobe Local Municipality, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa
    Chari, Martin Munashe, 2016, University of Fort Hare
    The main objective of the study was to assess the extent to which resource-poor households in selected villages of Nkonkobe Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa are vulnerable to drought by using an improvised remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS)-based ma ...

    Vaphi, Yanga Yandisa, 2016, University of Fort Hare
    This study is based on student lifestyle and its contribution to personal victimization at University of Fort Hare in Alice campus. Social Science researchers such as Fisher, Sloan, Cullen, and Lu (1998) claim that there are many incidents of criminal victimization occurring on and off university ca ...
  6. Assessment of the flocculating efficiency of bioflocculant produced by Bacillus SP. AEMREG4 isolated from Thyume River, Eastern Cape, South Africa
    Ntsangani, Nozipho, 2016, University of Fort Hare
    Bioflocculants are flocculating substances produced by microorganisms during growth and have recently received considerable attention from researchers; due to their biodegradability, non-toxicity and lack of secondary pollution from degradation intermediates. This study evaluated the efficiency of b ...

  8. Experiences of analogue-trained radiographers utilising digital imaging in projection radiography
    Campbell, Sydney, 2017, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University
    The professional work of a radiographer encompasses both patient care and the use of technology. The technology employed could either be analogue or digital technology. Since 1973, the analogue imaging system has slowly been replaced by digital radiography imaging systems. Despite the many advantage ...
  9. The role of apex predators in ecosystem function: fear triggered cascades regulated by differential prey vulnerability
    Le Roux, Elizabeth, 2016, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University
    Trophic cascades involving large terrestrial mammals are very seldom empirically demonstrated. The high species diversity often associated with terrestrial systems is thought to modulate the strength of trophic cascades. In speciose systems, species often vary in vulnerability to consumption, hence ...
