Testing the effect of in planta RNA silencing on Plasmodiophora brassicae infection
(Lincoln University, 2006)
In the late 1990s, a series of landmark publications described RNA interference (RNAi) and related RNA silencing phenomena in nematodes, plants and fungi. By manipulating RNA silencing, biologists have been able to create ...
The evolution of Araliaceae : a phylogenetic analysis based on ITS sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA
(American Society of Plant Taxonomists, 2001-01)
Phylogenetic analyses of ITS sequence data from 70 species and 40 genera of Araliaceae (representing all major lineages within the "core group" of the family) do not support the widely used traditional division of Araliaceae ...
A preliminary molecular analysis of phylogenetic relationships of Australasian wolf spider genera (Araneae, Lycosidae)
(American Arachnological Society, 2002)
A data-set from the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene subunit of 11 Australasian lycosid species (six New Zealand species and five Australian species) was generated. Three North American lycosid species, one European species and ...
An unexpected pattern of molecular divergence within the blue penguin (Eudyptula minor) complex
(Ornithological Society of New Zealand, 2002-03)
The blue penguins (genus Eudyptula) have been subjected to extensive taxonomic revision. In 1976, the genus was reduced from 2 species to a single species (Eudyptula minor) with 6 subspecies, based on a morphometric analysis. ...
Systematic relationships of New Zealand endemic Brassicaceae inferred from nrDNA ITS sequence data
(American Society of Plant Taxonomists, 2000-01)
Phylogenetic relationships of New Zealand species of Brassicaceae belonging to the South Island endemic Ischnocarpus, Iti, Notothlaspi, and Pachycladon, and the indigenous Cardamine, Cheesemania, Lepidium, and Rorippa were ...
Botrytis cinerea inoculum sources in the vineyard system
(Lincoln University, 2004)
Vitis vinifera L., the species grown to produce winegrapes in New Zealand, is susceptible to the necrotrophic and ubiquitous fungus, Botrytis cinerea Per.:Fr, which causes serious damage to crop yield and quality. Control ...
