Pedigree analysis of pre-breeding efforts in Trifolium spp. germplasm in New Zealand
(BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2020)
Background: Prebreeding in plants is the activity designed to identify useful characteristics from wild germplasm and its integration in breeding programs. Prebreeding aims to introduce new variation into the populations ...
Investigating geospatial patterns of elephant crop damage adjacent to the Serengeti National Park and Grumeti Game Reserve, Tanzania
(International Society for Environmental Information Sciences (ISEIS), 2020-09)
We investigated a spatial configuration of human-elephant interactions in communities bordering the Serengeti National Park and Grumeti Game Reserve. Elephant crop damage was the most common adverse impact of the interactions. ...

There is an increasing pressure on temperate pastoral dairy production systems to reduce environmental impacts, coming from the inefficient use of N by cows in the form of excessive urinary N excretion and subsequent N ...
Summer irrigation of pasture enhances the transfer and short-term storage of soil organic carbon in the particulate and mineral-associated organic matter fractions
(CSIRO Publishing, 2021)
Soil organic carbon (SOC) is both a source and sink of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂), with important implications for global climate change. Irrigation of grazed pastures has reportedly increased, reduced or made no ...
