Impacts of livestock grazing on soil physical quality and phosphorus and suspended sediment losses in surface runoff
(Lincoln University, 2010)
Livestock grazing is considered a major contributor in the loss of phosphorus (P) and suspended sediment (SS) from soil in surface runoff, which in turn can have adverse impacts on aquatic ecosystems. Recent and ongoing ...
Eutrophication in coastal New Zealand lakes and the mitigation potential of phosphorus immobilization using clay based amendments
(Lincoln University, 2017-11-14)
Water amendments were analysed in-vitro to identify their potential for phosphate sequestration in coastal lakes and water bodies, in an effort to reduce their phosphorus levels. The potential amendments were identified: ...
Interactions between Escherichia coli and the New Zealand native plants Leptospermum scoparium and Kunzea robusta
(Lincoln University, 2018)
Elevated concentrations of human pathogens in waterways is a global environmental issue and can result in widespread human disease and suffering. The provenance of these pathogens is usually from biological wastes, ...
Tracing critical source areas of phosphorus in grassland catchments
(Lincoln University, 2011)
Grassland farming systems are an important contributor to the New Zealand economy, however recent expansions in dairying have lead to increasing concern about its effects on water quality. Phosphorus (P) and sediment losses ...
