'Attract and reward' : combining a floral resource subsidy with a herbivore-induced plant volatile to enhance conservation biological control
(Lincoln University, 2009)
Experiments were conducted to assess whether a concept termed 'attract and reward' (A&R) could enhance conservation biological control (CBC). In A&R, a synthetically-produced herbivore induced plant volatile (HIPV) ('attract') ...
The role of floral resource subsidies in structuring a four tropic-level parasitoid/host system
(Lincoln University, 2007)
In this study, conservation biological control principles were explored to determine whether the efficacy of Aphidius ervi Haliday (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum Harris (Homoptera: ...

Biological control of onion white rot using Trichoderma harzianum
(Lincoln University, 2001)
The biological control of Sclerotium cepivorum, the causal agent of onion white rot, by Trichoderma harzianum and T. virens was studied in a glasshouse trial. T. Harzianum (isolates C52 and D73) and T. virens (isolate GV4) ...
Spider distribution in agroecosystems in Canterbury, New Zealand
(Lincoln University, 2000)
The spider assemblage from four shelterbelts and their adjacent grazed pastures in South Island, New Zealand was suction sampled from August 1994 to July 1995 and from March 1996 to March 1997. Spider density decreased ...
Olive leaf spot: epidemiology and control
(Lincoln University, 2006)
The overall goal of this research was to improve the understanding of the environmental factors affecting development of olive leaf spot (OLS) in New Zealand olive groves and to develop strategies for the disease management. ...
Disease mitigation and pathogenic control in German and common wasps, Vespula germanica and V. vulgaris (Hymenoptera: Vespidae)
(Lincoln University, 2002)
Vespula germanica (F.) (German wasp) and V. vulgaris (L.) (common wasp) are major pests in New Zealand. They damage crops, have a significant impact on the biodiversity of native ecosystems and present a significant health ...
New toxin research
(Indigenous Forest Section of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association, 2010)
Collaboration between Lincoln University, the private sector, Otago and Auckland Universities, the Department of Conservation, Regional Councils, Pest Control Professionals and Community groups coupled with AHB and FRST ...
Soil and forest pattern of Saltwater Forest
(Indigenous Forest Section of the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association, 2009-02)
We are familiar with effects of soil type on forest compositions, particularly in natural forests. Species organise themselves in the landscape in part according to their competitiveness in different conditions of soil ...
Floral resources for the enhancement of the efficacy of Diadegma semiclausum (Helen) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae), a parasitoid of Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Hyponomeutidae) in broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica)
(Lincoln University, 2004)
In this thesis, conservation biological control experiments have been conducted in the broccoli agro-ecosystem in New Zealand, to target the diamondback moth (Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Hyponomeutidae)) and its ...
