Background: In vision, there is a trade-off between sensitivity and resolution, and any eye which maximises information gain at low light levels needs to be large. This imposes exacting constraints upon vision in nocturnal ...
Measuring diversity and abundance of beetles and spiders in ten Port Hills reserves, Canterbury
(Lincoln University. Bio-Protection & Ecology Division., 2007-06)
The use of tree-mounted artificial shelters to investigate arboreal spider communities in New Zealand nature reserves
(American Arachnological Society, 2007)
Spiders have been advocated as valuable bio-indicators of forest ecosystem 'health.' However, the numbers and types of spiders that are recorded at a site will usually be highly dependent on the sampling method employed. ...
Studies on the regulation of conidiation in species of Trichoderma
(Lincoln University, 2007)
A characteristic feature of species of Trichoderma is the production of concentric rings of conidia in response to alternating light-dark conditions. In response to a single burst of light, a single ring of conidia forms ...
Modelling of circadian rhythms in Drosophila incorporating the interlocked PER/TIM and VRI/PDP1 feedback loops
Circadian rhythms of gene activity, metabolism, physiology and behaviour are observed in all the eukaryotes and some prokaryotes. In this study, we present a model to represent the transcriptional regulatory network essential ...
