    • Behavioural and olfactory responses of pest insects to endophyte-infected (Epichloë festucae variant lolii) perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne): 

      Hennessy, Louise (Lincoln University, 2020)
      Asexual fungal endophytes (Epichloë) colonise agricultural grasses (Poaceae) in an interaction which provides host plants with protection against herbivorous insects. Despite 40 years of research there is still much we do ...
    • Drivers of future alien species impacts: An expert-based assessment 

      Essl, F.; Lenzner, B.; Bacher, S.; Bailey, Sarah; Capinha, C.; Daehler, C.; Dullinger, S.; Genovesi, P.; Hui, Cang; Hulme, Philip E.; Jeschke, J.

(Wiley, 2020-09)
      Understanding the likely future impacts of biological invasions is crucial yet highly challenging given the multiple relevant environmental, socio-economic and societal contexts and drivers. In the absence of quantitative ...
    • An improved method to produce adults of Costelytra zealandica White (Coleoptera: Melolothinae) from field-collected larvae 

      Chang, M.; Glare, Travis; Lefort, Marie-Caroline; Postic, E.; Wratten, Stephen D. (Entomological Society of New Zealand, 2017)
      Rearing techniques provide a unique opportunity to study aspects of insect ecology, behaviour and physiology. Both the larval and adult stages in Melolonthinae scarabs have important impacts on crop and pasture yields worldwide. ...
    • Using niche conservatism information to prioritize hotspots of invasion by non-native freshwater invertebrates in New Zealand 

      Torres, U.; Godsoe, William; Buckley, Hannah L.; Parry, M.; Lustig, Audrey; Worner, Susan P. (Wiley, 2018-12)
      Aim: Identifying suitable areas for invasive species establishment is of critical impor-tance for their early detection and rapid eradication. However, our ability to detect suitable areas is impeded by the tendency of ...
    • Understanding the pathways from biodiversity to agro-ecological outcomes: A new, interactive approach 

      Chang, Mauricio G.; Wratten, Stephen D.; Shields, Morgan; Costanza, R.; Dainese, M.; Gurr, G. M.; Johnson, Janine; Karp, D. S.; Ketelaar, J. W.; Nboyine, Jerry; Pretty, J.; Rayl, Ryan; Sandhu, H.; Walker, M.; Zhou, W. (Elsevier, 2020-10-01)
      The adoption of agro-ecological practices in agricultural systems worldwide can contribute to increased food production without compromising future food security, especially under the current biodiversity loss and climate ...
