Population and sowing depth effects on yield components of grain legumes
(Lincoln University, 2001)
Desi chickpeas (Cicer arietinum), lentils (Lens culinaris), narrow leafed lupins (Lupinus angustifolius) and field peas (Pisum sativum) were sown at three plant populations (10, 100 and 400 plants/m²) and three depths (2, ...

Application of isotopic dilution methods to the study of the dissolution of phosphate fertilisers of differing solubility in the soil
(Lincoln University, 1991)
An injection technique, in which undisturbed soil cores are labelled with ³²P to study dissolution of phosphate fertilisers in the soil, was evaluated in field and glasshouse trials. When ³²P was injected between 0-150 mm ...
Elder (Sambucus nigra) as a facilitator of succession, Hoon Hay Valley, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand
(Lincoln University, 1998)
Native woody plants appear to regenerate more profusely under elder (Sambucus nigra) trees, than in exotic scrub vegetation in Hoon Hay Valley. This observation suggests elder may act as a succession facilitator, speeding ...
Floristic variation and environmental relationships of sand dune communities at Kaitorete Spit Scientific Reserve
(Lincoln University, 1997)
A study of the plant-communities, their abundance, distribution, and environmental relationships, was carried out at Kaitorete Spit Scientific Reserve. The relationships between indigenous and exotic species were investigated ...
The effect on protein synthesis in barley of infection with P. hordei
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1989)
Infection of barley (Hordeum vulgare) leaves with the rust fungus, Puccinia hordei, causes changes in the host protein synthesis. This thesis analyses these changes in the barley cultivar Triumph following inoculation of ...
Copper oxide wire particles with special reference to parasitism in lambs
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1988)
The interrelationship between copper oxide wire particles (COWP) treatment and parasitic infection was investigated. Particular emphasis was given to the effect of elevated abomasal pH due to parasitic infection on the ...
Asparagus virus 2 : incidence, yield effects and transmission in New Zealand asparagus crops
(Lincoln University, 1997)
Asparagus ilarvirus 2 (AV2) occurs in asparagus crops in New Zealand and worldwide, but its effect on and spread within crops has not been reported in the literature. The causes of declining yields in asparagus crops, ...
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 ...
Nutrition of container grown plants with emphasis on the Proteaceae
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1979)
A range of Proteaceous shrubs and other nursery plants were grown in containers with soilless media and various N levels. Plants demonstrated a range of responsiveness. Supplying soilless media with Osmocote (26% N) and ...
