    Different species, like plants and herbivores, that are occupying similar ecosystems and living among each other interact regularly. In this interaction, understanding the conditions in which coexistence equilibrium occurs ...
  • Gwangwava, Norman; Addo-Tenkorang, Richard (Botswana International University Of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    This paper highlights uses of R, an open source data analysis software and programming language, in teaching an engineering module (Quality Control and Management). The main objective is to orient engineering students to ...
  • Mutamiswa, Reyard; Conlong, Des; Moeng, Eva; Assefa, Yoseph; Le Ru, Bruno; Gofitshu, Muluken; Nyamukondiwa, Casper (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Africa hosts significant lepidopteran stem-borers which are attacked by a diversity of natural enemies in their natural and cultivated environments. To determine diversity, relative abundance of stem-borer natural enemies ...
  • Tirivarombo, Sithabile; Oromeng, Gladness (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    There is large consensus among the scientific community that the global climate is changing and that climate change will accelerate the hydrological cycle with increased frequency of occurrence of flood and drought events. ...
  • Otumile, Thuto; Oladele, Adewole S. (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Addressing issues of quality in gravel material by introducing proper testing of material will greatly reduce poor gravel road performance and the costs of maintenance. Locally, shortage of land and settlement in rural ...
  • Nkgwang, Temo Tsoso; Oladele, Adewole S. (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    The Geotechnical investigation of the gravel material used in the construction of gravel roads in Palapye is important as it ensures that the quality of the gravel material used complies with the Botswana Bureau of Standards ...
  • Thobega, Maatla; Matsebe, Oduetse; Namoshe, Molaletsa (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Solar energy, amongst other renewable sources still stands out as one of the rosy sources of energy due to its inexhaustible capacity, its cost free and totally environmentally friendly. Conversion of solar energy is ...
  • Chiwara, Baboloki; Makhura, Emmanuel; Danha, Gwiranai (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    In this article, we propose, design and implement a sustainable process technology that converts plastic waste into useful products. The nature of the raw material for our process (plastic waste) make our proposed technology ...
  • Kowa, Ofentse B.; Yahya, Abid; Marata, Leatile (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Due to the high demand of free channels and lack of channel regulation policies unlike in the licensed spectrum, users do not sufficiently utilise the open band and cause interference. As a result, conventional and traditional ...
  • Moshoeshoe, Mohau N.; Obuseng, Veronica (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    An HPLC method using an UV detector was developed for the simultaneous determination of nitrites, nitrates and phosphates for environmental samples. Chromatographic separation was achieved on a Phenomenex Synergi Polar-RP ...
  • Tsheboeng, Galathe; Murray-Hudson, Mike; Kashe, Keotshepile; Mmusi, Mmusi (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Plants in arid areas are widely used for timber, food, fire wood and livestock fodder. As a result they could be threatened by over-exploitation from overgrazing and overharvesting. These threats are exacerbated by lack ...
  • Sebubi, Oarabile; Dinakenyane, Otlhapile; Mpoeleng, Dimane (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Data in the water utility sector are generated by different tools of different types in different formats and stored in different systems that run in different platforms and located in different places. This limits the ...
  • Nagayo, Analene Montesines; Jamisola, Rodrigo S. (2017-06)
    This paper presents the design and implementation of an aquaponics greenhouse cloud-based wireless monitoring system and control that allow plants and fish to co-exist in a synergetic and controlled ecology. Two controllers ...
  • Gadiile, Monametsi; Narayana Rao, Subas Chandar (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    Bent pipes and ducts are used extensively in the industrial complexes mainly due to space constraints. However, bends in pipes and ducts cause pressure losses and generate flow separation inside in the pipes and ducts ...
  • Yane, Tshepho; Narayana Rao, Subas Chandar (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, 2017-06)
    The axisymmetric turbulent far wake of a long slender cylinder is being studied. Classical analytical solutions describing the wake width and the velocity defect are presented. The governing equations have been solved with ...
  • Akofang, Leonard; Baituti, Bernard (Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST), 2017-06)
    The world is currently facing an increased need for clean and renewal energy sources due to global warming and rapid depletion of crude oil reserves. Production of hydrogen fuel from water could be a possible future solution ...
  • Maina, Irene Wangari; Obuseng, Veronica; Nareetsile, Florence (Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST), 2017-06)
    The use of waste materials as low-cost adsorbents is attractive due to their contribution in the reduction of costs for waste disposal, therefore contributing to environmental protection and most importantly, offers an ...
  • Makoba, Josephine; Moetse, Gaasite; Mosepele, Keta (Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST), 2017-06)
