Protecting the unseen majority: Land cover and environmental factors linked with soil bacterial communities and functions in New Zealand
(New Zealand Ecological Society, 2021)
The biodiversity in soil ecosystems is simultaneously incredibly rich and poorly described. In countries such as New Zealand, where high endemism in plant species emerged following extended geographical isolation, it is ...
Analysis of soil eDNA functional genes: Potential to increase profitability and sustainability of pastoral agriculture
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2016-10-01)
Management of soil biological resources to optimise plant production, efficiency of nutrient inputs, and system sustainability is an emerging opportunity for pastoral agriculture. To achieve these goals, suitable tools ...
Mechanisms of pollution induced community tolerance in a soil microbial community exposed to Cu
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-07)
Pollution induced community tolerance (PICT) to Cu²⁺, and co-tolerance to nanoparticulate Cu, ionic silver (Ag⁺), and vancomycin were measured in field soils treated with Cu²⁺ 15 years previously. EC₅₀ values were determined ...
Long-term irrigation effects on soil organic matter under temperate grazed pasture
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2014-09)
© 2014 British Society of Soil Science. Irrigation of grazed pasture significantly increases plant and animal production, which may in turn increase soil organic carbon (SOC), depending on the balance between primary ...
