Microplastic counts ranged on average from 55 ± 289 to 930 ± 462 microplastic particles.m-3. With the exception of two instances, microfibres constituted > 50 % (range: 47 to 97 %) of the total microplastic counts. Part two of this study assessed the size range of, and seasonal and spatial patterns in ingested microplastic. No significant differences were found in the number of microplastics ingested within seasons between the mussels Perna perna (Linnaeus, 1758) and Mytilus galloprovincialis (Lamarck, 1819), and the barnacles, Octomeris angulosa (Sowerby, 1825) and Tetraclita serrata (Darwin 1954) (Student’s t-test; d.f = 18; p > 0.05 in all cases), or between the two sites sampled, Kenton-on-Sea, Eastern Cape, and Wilderness, Western Cape (ANOVA; d.f. = 18; p > 0.05 in all cases). The nitric acid digestion technique was used to determine the presence of ingested microplastics. Microplastic loads ranged from 2 ± 1 to 33 ± 19 microplastics.g-1 wwt across all consumers, and the size of ingested microplastics ranged from 1 to 16 μm. Though highly variable, the absence of statistically significant differences in ingestion rates points to a ubiquity in the availability of microplastics within the water column over time and space.]]> Thu 13 May 2021 06:52:15 SAST ]]> Sexual attraction and mating compatibility between Thaumatotibia leucotreta populations and implications for semiochemical dependent technologies https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:38747 Thu 13 May 2021 05:31:51 SAST ]]> Habitat suitability and behaviour of springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) at Augrabies Falls National Park, South Africa https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:11079 Thu 13 May 2021 03:54:18 SAST ]]> The effectiveness of sandplay therapy with a Xhosa child https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:39876 Thu 13 May 2021 01:54:08 SAST ]]>
