      Rats introduced into previously mammal-free New Zealand (NZ) seriously impact our vulnerable native flora and fauna. As a result, considerable research effort has focused on developing control techniques for reducing and/or ...
    • Addition of defatted green-lipped mussel powder and mixed spices to wheat–purple rice flour biscuits: Physicochemical, in vitro digestibility and sensory evaluation 

      Klunklin, Warinporn; Savage, Geoffrey P. (Wiley, 2018-10)
      Biscuits were formulated using a 50/50 wheat and purple rice flour mix containing mixed spices, galangal, and defatted green-lipped mussel powder (Perna canaliculus) added in the range of 5–15% of the total biscuit weight. ...
    • A novel data-driven Boolean model for genetic regulatory networks 

      Chen, Leshi; Kulasiri, Gamalathge D.; Samarasinghe, Sandhya (Frontiers Media, 2018-09-25)
      A Boolean model is a simple, discrete and dynamic model without the need to consider the effects at the intermediate levels. However, little effort has been made into constructing activation, inhibition, and protein decay ...
    • Breaking the Parasite life cycle 

      Martin-Mckie, Marsha (Lincoln University, 2018)
      This thesis investigates the use of either liquid urea or effective microorganism solutions to break the parasite lifecycle while outside of its host and reduced larval challenge on pasture. The main aim was to extend in ...
    • The release of nitrogen and carbohydrate from herbage during comminution 

      Minnee, Elena (Lincoln University, 2017)
      In forage-based livestock production systems, dietary N is often in excess supply. In addition, the efficiency with which ruminants utilise dietary N utilisation is low, leading to substantial losses of N to the environment, ...
