Lincoln University operates a number of internationally renowned research centres. These generally consist of a group of individual researchers and/or groups of research teams.

Research centres are primarily cross-divisional and may work in collaboration with external partners and attract researchers and postgraduate students. A management board, consisting of representatives from the major organisations or divisions involved, manages each centre.

  • Using classification assignment rules to assess land-use change impacts on forest biodiversity at local-to-national scales 

    Affeld, Kathrin; Wiser, S. K.; Payton, I. J.; DeCáceres, M. (Springer Open, 2018-01-22)
    Background: Ecosystem representation is one key component in assessing the biodiversity impacts of land-use changes that will irrevocably alter natural ecosystems. We show how detailed vegetation plot data can be used to ...

G.; Xiao, Haijun; Yasuda, M.; Yoshioka, A.; Zou Yi (National Academy of Sciences, 2018-08-14)
    The idea that noncrop habitat enhances pest control and represents a win–win opportunity to conserve biodiversity and bolster yields has emerged as an agroecological paradigm. However, while noncrop habitat in landscapes ...
  • Impact of the biocontrol beetle, Cassida rubiginosa, on the secondary weed target, marsh thistle (Cirsium palustre) 

    Hettiarachchi, Dilani K.; Cripps, Michael; Jackman, S. D.; Van Koten, C.; Sullivan, Jon J.; Rostas, Michael (New Zealand Plant Protection Society, 2018-07-26)
    The folivorous beetle Cassida rubiginosa was introduced to New Zealand to control the weed, Californian thistle (Cirsium arvense). Although Californian thistle is the primary host, many other thistles are accepted hosts. ...
  • Pathogenicity of Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici increased by nitrogen applied to soil to enhance the decomposition rate of wheat residues 

    Van Toor, Ronald F.; Butler, R. C.; Braithwaite, Mark; Bienkowski, Damian; Qiu, W.; Chng, Soon F.; Cromey, M. G. (New Zealand Plant Protection Society, 2016)
    Soil cores removed after harvest of a wheat crop infected with the fungus, Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici (Ggt), were amended with nitrogen and fungal saprophytes to increase decay of crop residues and subsequently ...
