Calcium homeostasis in lens transparency and the involvement of calpains in cataract
(Lincoln University, 2006)
The absolute clarity of the lens of the eye is vital in the visual system. The unique structural and physiological properties of the lens are tightly integrated with highly ordered protein content to allow the lens to ...
Discourse dialogue : grassroots' perspective on sustainable development
(Lincoln University, 2003)
The concept of sustainable development has been discussed, debated and defined at the global level since the 1960's. This dialogue has created questions on whether or not the definitions promoted at the global level are ...
'Attract and reward' : combining a floral resource subsidy with a herbivore-induced plant volatile to enhance conservation biological control
(Lincoln University, 2009)
Experiments were conducted to assess whether a concept termed 'attract and reward' (A&R) could enhance conservation biological control (CBC). In A&R, a synthetically-produced herbivore induced plant volatile (HIPV) ('attract') ...
White-rot fungi : formulation for inoculation and biodegradation of pentachlorophenol in contaminated sites
(Lincoln University, 2006)
The use of technical grade pentachlorophenol (PCP) as a fungicide in the New Zealand timber industry has left an estimated 800 contaminated sites throughout New Zealand. Technical grade pentachlorophenol is reported to be ...
Effect of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin (Ascomycota: Hypocreales) on Diadegma semiclausum (Hellen) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae), a parasitoid of Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae)
(Lincoln University, 2005)
Investigation of the interactions among Plutella xylostella (host), Beauveria bassiana (pathogen) and Diadegma semiclausum (parasitoid) was the aim of this thesis. The pathogenicity of B. bassiana to P. xylostella larvae ...
An investigation into the effect of sodium content in plantain (Plantago lanceolata) on urine production in sheep
(Lincoln University, 2017)
The effect of the high sodium content of plantain on urine production in sheep was investigated. Two groups of sheep (n=10) were fed either perennial ryegrass or plantain for 3 days. Allocated feeds were balanced for water ...
The role of floral resource subsidies in structuring a four tropic-level parasitoid/host system
(Lincoln University, 2007)
In this study, conservation biological control principles were explored to determine whether the efficacy of Aphidius ervi Haliday (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum Harris (Homoptera: ...
Effects of ivermectin in dairy discharges on terrestrial and aquatic invertebrates
(New Zealand Department of Conservation, 2002-09)
Ivermectin (22,23-dihydroavermectin B₁) is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic drug that was introduced for the control of parasitic worms and lice in sheep and cattle. This review summarises what is known about the impact of ...
Morphological and molecular analysis of the carabid genus Oregus, with identification of two new species
A thorough revision of the New Zealand carabid genus Oregus Putzeys, 1868 was undertaken. All known and available specimens (2196) from national and selected international collections were examined. Both adult morphology ...
