Temporal changes in height and diameter growth for two Nothofagus species in New Zealand
(Opulus Press, 1997-06)
We examined whether the growth dynamics of two species can explain their coexistence. In particular, we examined New Zealand forests dominated by Nothofagus fusca and N. menziesii to determine whether both species can reach ...
Tree species richness and turnover throughout New Zealand forests
(Opulus Press, 1999-12)
Patterns of mortality, recruitment, and forest turnover were investigated using permanent plot data from temperate forests in 14 localities throughout New Zealand. Tree mortality and recruitment rates were calculated from ...
Extreme longevity of the common gecko (Hoplodactylus maculatus) on Motunau Island, Canterbury, New Zealand
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 1999)
The longevity of common geckos (Hoplodactylus maculatus) on predator-free Motunau Island, North Canterbury, was investigated. Sixteen of 133 individuals marked between 1967-75 were re-captured in the summer of 1996/97. A ...
Small-scale species richness in forest canopy gaps: the role of niche limitation versus the size of the species pool
(Opulus Press, 1998-06)
The form of the relationship between local species richness and the number of species in the surrounding region can be used as a test between competing theories of community structure. For 32 canopy gaps in New Zealand ...
Burrow occupancy and related behaviour of broad-billed prions Pachyptila vittata on South East (Rangatira) Island, Chatham Islands, New Zealand
(Lincoln University. Ecology and Entomology Group, 1998-07)
Burrow competition is occurring between broad-billed prions (Pachyptila vittata) and other small burrowing seabirds on South East (Rangatira) Island, Chatham Islands, New Zealand. This competition has a negative impact on ...
