Cross sections for neutron capture in the range of unresolved resonances and average level distances near the neutron emission threshold are simultaneously predicted for more than 140 spin-0 target nuclei with A > 50. Assuming triaxiality in nearly all these nuclei a combined description of both, photon strength and level density, is presentedneeding very few fit parameters only.
