Putting the frames in perspective
(AGM Publishing., 1999-11)
A critique of the Auckland Regional Council Natural Masterpiece Project, where the ARC is attempting to ' brand ' its parks with huge gilt frames. The frames are significant in the way they express a particular perspective on ...
Will the NZCPS adequately protect the coast?
(Lincoln University, 2009-06)
To the question 'Will the new NZCPS adequately protect the coast?' the answer is clearly 'no'. The 'no' lies conceptually in the simple fact that protecting the coast is not the purpose of the NZCPS, nor can the NZCPS ...
Real-time, high-resolution quantitative measurement of multiple soil gas emissions : selected ion flow tube mass spectrometry
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2002)
A new technique is presented for the rapid, high-resolution identification and quantification of multiple trace gases above soils, at concentrations down to 0.01 µL L⁻¹ (10 ppb). The technique, selected ion flow tube mass ...
Unweathered wood biochar impact on nitrous oxide emissions from a bovine-urine-amended pasture soil
(Soil Science Society of America, 2010)
Low-temperature pyrolysis of biomass produces a product known as biochar. The incorporation of this material into the soil has been advocated as a C sequestration method. Biochar also has the potential to influence the ...
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. ...
Accounting for the utilization of a N₂O mitigation tool in the IPCC inventory methodology for agricultural soils
(Springer Netherlands, 2007)
In this study we review recent studies where dicyandiamide was used as a nitrification inhibitor to reduce both N₂O emissions from urine patches and nitrate leaching from pasture systems, and which led to the development ...
Influence of ripening grape compounds on behavioural responses of birds
(Lincoln University, 2004)
Vineyards in New Zealand suffer bird damage caused by several avian species, including blackbirds and silvereyes. The introduced European Blackbird takes whole grapes which reduces yield. The self-introduced Australasian ...
Visitor and New Zealand fur seal interactions along the Kaikoura coast
(Lincoln University. Tourism Research and Education Centre., 1998-09)
Interactions between tourists and the natural environment : impacts of tourist trampling on geothermal vegetation and tourist experiences at geothermal sites in Rotorua
(Lincoln University. Tourism Research and Education Centre, 2000-02)
The main objective of this research was to evaluate tourist impacts on geothermal vegetation and to examine visitor's attitudes towards their impacts on vegetation. Two commercially operated sites near Rotorua were selected ...
Effects of 15N-labelled crop residues and management practices on subsequent winter wheat yields, nitrogen benefits and recovery under field conditions
(Cambridge University Press, 2001-02)
Nitrogen-15 enriched ammonium sulphate was applied to micro-plots in a field in which two leguminous (white clover and peas) and two non-leguminous (ryegrass and winter wheat) crops were grown to produce ¹⁵N-labelled crop ...
