The mammals of the Transvaal.

Rautenbach, Ignatius Lourens. 19 September 2014 (has links)
The primary object of this study is to provide a checklist of the mammals occurring within the Transvaal. A general biological account of each species forms the bulk of this treatise, - discussing, in order of sequence, firstly the taxonomic status of each species as based on a study of available museum specimens. Thereafter the distribution of each species is discussed, and illustrated with a map of known distribution. Remarks are presented on the various environmental factors that may influence individual species ranges. Habitat preferences, habits, and food preferences are then discussed. Available data on breeding seasonality, as based on the monthly ratio of reproductively active and inactive females, are given. External measurements and masses of males and females are tabulated. Records of occurrence based on the number of museum specimens from each locality, and the institution where these specimens are housed, are finally listed for each species. The text is supplemented by a gazetteer, giving the latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates of all the collecting localities. This study is based on some 12 000 museum specimens, the greatest majority housed in the Transvaal Museum collections. During the field work phase of this project, 57 localities were sampled. This yielded the majority of the specimens and the greater part of the data on which this book is based. Information gained from a study of earlier collected material supplements these data files. Additional information such as sight records, field observations, and the published accounts of other scientists, have also been incorporated into the central data files and have been discussed in relation to my own findings. The results of selected studies comprise the discussion. The basic behavioural trends and mean mass of all the carnivore species of the Transvaal are employed to speculate on how interspecific competition is avoided. The distribution of all southern African mammals is employed to statistically evaluate the validity of the biotic zones previously empirically recognized for this subcontinent. The distribution patterns of Transvaal mammals are statistically analysed to subdivide the biotic zones overlying the Transvaal into community types of zoogeographical significance. Other zoogeographical phenomena are discussed in relation to regional species diversity. Reprints of papers arising from this study, and particularly the discussion, are bound in as appendices to this report. / Thesis (Ph.D.)-University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, 1978.

Synthesis of the structural geology of the Northern Transvaal.

Chernicoff, Carlos Jorge 15 April 2014 (has links)
M.Sc. (Geology) / The study area is subdivided into seven tectonic domains, viz. Bandelierkop, Southern Beit Bridge Complex, Alldays, Hestern Transvaal, Soutpansberg, Waterberg and Lebombo domains. The Bandelierkop domain comprises the Southern Marginal Zone of the Limpopo Belt (Bdl) and the northern portion of the Kaapvaal craton (Bd2). Bdl is characterized by the presence of highly disrupted xenoliths of pelitic and mafic supracrustal rocks distributed in a "s ea " of granitic ·material. This contrasts with the much bigger supracrustal xenoliths in Bd2, i.e. the greenstone belt relicts. The granulite facies rocks of Bdl may have been upthrust roughly from south to north along one or more south-dipping thrust faults soling into a gently-dipping to flatlying basal shear zone. Since this model reveals the existence of the Kaapvaal craton partly on edge, the progressively higher grade of regional metamorphism (from greenschist to granulite facies) encountered in the Bandelierkop domain, from south (Bd2) to north (Bdl), could express the transition from upper crust to lower crust as exposed on the present land surface. The structural trends found in Bdl and Bd2 are not strictly confined to either area, and some overlapping exists. The most distinct structural trend in Bdl is a west-northwest fold trend, a northeast fold trend also being recognized in the eastern portion of Bdl. Bd2 exhibits f~ld trends varying from west-northwest to northeast in orientation; in this area there is ample evidence for the later nature of the northwest- to west-northwest oriented folding event. The east-northeast- to northeast folding is con~ dered to represent an event independent of the effect of deformation of the Kudus River shear zone to which this folding was previously thought to be related.The portion of the Central Zone of the Limpopo Belt falling within South African territory comprises the Alldays and Southern Beit Br_idge Compl ex (SBBCd) doma tn s., There exists a marked contrast between the roughly north trending fold trends of the Alldays domain and the east-northeast fold structure of the southernmost part of the Central Zone, the SBBCd. The relatively gentle plunges of the fold structure of the Alldays domain may have accentuated the size of the regional folds in this region. The SBBCd occupies a narrow east-northeast oriented strip extending immediately south of the Alldays domain, where tightly folded gneisses and metasedim~nts are exposed. all strata are strongly aligned in the regionally extensive eastnortheast direction. A contrasting difference between the SBBCd and the surrounding Precambrian terranes is clear, as the former domain conveys a relatively higher strain; this evidence of heterogeneous strain suggests that the SBBCd represents a shear zone. The shearing movement may have been of thrust type, consistent with the thrust model referred to above, and the SBBCd may be regarded as the thrust plane. In'iiew of the steeply-dipping, south-southwest oriented fold axes known to exist along part of the SBBCd (area south of Messina), it would appear that, at least in that area, the thrust movement would have been towards the north-northeast. A late, involved history of deformation followed in the SBBCd, during which one or more episodes of wrench-type movement may have taken place. The Soutpansberg domain is a relatively narrow and long fault zone of Proterozoic to Phanerozoic age that separates 'mobile belt' environment to the north, from 'cratonic' environment to the south. A linked fault system characterized by south-dipping, normal listric faults soling into ? gently-dipping major detachment surface may account for the structural pattern of this domain. The thrust system referred to above, which developed earlier in the geological history of the region along the Limpopo Belt - Kaapvaal craton boundary, may have controlled the late extensional displacement in the Soutpansberg domain. The overall structure of the Waterberg domain would seem to be controlled by the superimposition of northeastand northwest oriented gentle folds and, with the exception of locally intense deformation in the early Waterberg basin, would appear to have developed on a relatively stable portion of crust. The structure of the Lebombo domain is characterized by a north-south striking monocline with gentle east dip. Most of the lineaments inferred from the aeromagnetic survey of the study area originate from dyke intrusions. Faulting, fracturing and shearing are less clearly manifested in the pattern of the aeromagnetic contour maps, instead they are better correlated with the lineaments inferre~ from LANDSAT imagery and from the drainage patterns of the region.

Opvoeding tot beroepsvolwassenheid in die Transvaalse spesiale skole / Jacobus Petrus Johannes Goussard

Goussard, Jacobus Petrus Johannes January 1984 (has links)
In this study the author reflects on the education which pupils receive at special schools in the Transvaal. The aim of the study has been to determine possible contributory factors to and problem areas in the present field of Special Education which might lead to special school pupils being disadvantaged in their later professional choices as adults. Following the completion of the study a number of recommendations are made which arose out of the study. In order to obtain a proper perspective on Special Education, the following aspects were investigated: education and professional maturity; special schools; the curriculum and professional options for special school pupils; and means of measurement. A questionnaire covering a number of important aspects of Special Education was sent to all the principals of special schools in the Transvaal. Upon receipt of the completed questionnaires they were analysed and interpreted. A Departmental Survey of special school pupils who left school in the course of 1982 was integrated with the results of the ' questionnaire in order to obtain a more comprehensive synthesis with regard to the education offered and the pupil's ultimate choice of profession and their employment opportunities. From the study it emerged that there are definitely certain weaknesses within the present situation in Special Education which inhibit these pupil's professional maturity and their ultimate employment prospects. Certain conclusions were reached and a number of recommendations were offered in order to make a contribution towards a possibly more favourable education of these pupils. / Thesis (MEd)--PU vir CHO, 1985
