The costs of single species programmes and the budget constraint
(Surrey Beatty & Sons, 2008)
Despite the scarcity of funding for species conservation programs, estimation of the cost of threatened species programs occurs in only a few countries. This paper examines the reasons for the lack of species program cost ...
Feeding frequency, meal size and chick growth in the threatened Pycroft's petrel (Pterodroma pycrofti)
(Lincoln University. Bio-Protection & Ecology Division, 2002)
Many species of gadfly petrel (genus Pterodroma) are threatened or endangered, including, in New Zealand, the Chatham petrel (Pterodroma axillaris), and Pycroft's petrel (P. pycrofti). Conservation actions for these species ...
Diurnal fluctuations of dissolved nitrous oxide (N₂O) concentrations and estimates of N₂O emissions from a spring-fed river: implications for IPCC methodology
(Blackwell Publishing, 2007)
There is uncertainty in the estimates of indirect nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions as defined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The uncertainty is due to the challenge and dearth of in situ measurements. ...
Non-linear optical constants from molecular hyperpolarisabilities: 1. Iterative solution of quadractic tensor equations for mutual polarisation
(Lincoln University. Applied Computing, Mathematics and Statistics Group., 2000-06)
The effects of variable flow velocity on contaminant dispersion in porous flow
(Lincoln University. Applied Computing, Mathematics and Statistics Group, 2001-07)
Solute dispersion in porous flow with a constant velocity gradient

Enhancing financial and economic yield in tourism: yield associated with different tourist types
(Lincoln University. Tourism Recreation Research and Education Centre., 2007-11)
The programme “Enhancing Financial and Economic Yield in Tourism” has completed a range of investigations into various dimensions of private sector yield of tourism businesses, as well as public sector yield of tourism at ...
Noninvasive recovery and detection of possum Trichosurus vulpecula DNA from bitten bait interference devices (WaxTags)
The brushtail possum is a major agricultural and ecological pest in New Zealand. A novel noninvasive DNA sampling tool for detecting its presence (WaxTags, or WT) was tested. DNA was recovered from saliva left on WT, and ...
Dry matter accumulation of oats sown at five different sowing dates
(The Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2009)
In crop rotations the harvest date of the first crop affects the sowing date of the succeeding crop which then influences the potential annual yield of the rotation. This study measured the dry matter accumulation and ...
