Inheritance and molecular studies of durable resistance to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis West.) in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
(Lincoln University, 2002)
To study the mode of inheritance of durable resistance to stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis West.), and design a molecular approach to determine the contribution of genomic region(s) to the durability of this resistance, ...
Biological control of Sclerotina diseases of vegetables
(Lincoln University, 2000)
Sixty three fungal isolates, obtained from the local region (Canterbury, New Zealand), were tested for their ability to inhibit mycelial growth and sclerotial production of Sclerotinia sclerotiorum using a cabbage petiole ...
Ecology of long-tailed bats Chalinolobus tuberculatus (Forster, 1844) in the Waitakere Ranges: implications for monitoring
(Lincoln University, 2001)
The long-tailed bat (Chalinolobus tuberculatus) is a threatened species endemic to New Zealand. Historical anecdotes indicate that long-tailed bat populations have declined. However, it is unknown if all populations have ...
Assessment of the extent of alpine areas being utilised as possum habitat in Westland
(Lincoln University. Soil, Plant and Ecological Sciences Division., 2000-05)
Factors affecting nitric oxide and nitrous oxide emissions from grazed pasture urine patches under New Zealand conditions
(Lincoln University, 2009)
New Zealand is dominated by its agricultural industry with one of the most intensive farming practices being that of intensive dairying. New Zealand currently has approximately 5.3 million dairy cows that excrete up to 2.2 ...
The impact of host-plant stress on the performance of two insect biological control agents of Broom (Cytisus scoparius)
(Lincoln University, 2005)
Weeds often grow over a wide range of environments, experiencing a number of environmental stresses with varying intensities. As a consequence these weeds will often exhibit differences in morphology and physiology. It has ...
Teucridium parvifolium Hook.F.; cryptic, ephemeral or disappearing species?
(Canterbury Botanical Society., 2001-12)
Lack of information on threatened species often causes confusion over their degree of rarity especially where species are widespread but sparse. Teucridium parvifolium is such a species but may be one that is more common ...
Dynamical modelling of feedback gene regulatory networks
(Lincoln University, 2009)
Living cells are made up of networks of interacting genes, proteins and other bio-molecules. Simple interactions between network components in forms of feedback regulations can lead to complex collective dynamics. A key ...
Induced defences in kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum): do caterpillars avoid previous leaf damage?
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2000)
This study examined whether two species of lepidopteran larvae (Cleora scriptaria and Epiphyas postvittana) were deterred from feeding on the leaves of kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) after the leaves had been damaged in ...
Protein nutrition of livestock grazing high quality pasture
(Lincoln University, 2010)
This thesis describes a series of four experiments designed to evaluate the role of the supply of protein in livestock grazing high quality pasture during mating and during pregnancy. The first two studies investigated the ...
