A preliminary molecular analysis of phylogenetic relationships of Australasian wolf spider genera (Araneae, Lycosidae)
(American Arachnological Society, 2002)
A data-set from the mitochondrial 12S rRNA gene subunit of 11 Australasian lycosid species (six New Zealand species and five Australian species) was generated. Three North American lycosid species, one European species and ...
Beetling: A method for capturing trapdoor spiders (Idiopidae) using tethered beetles
(British Arachnological Society, 2015)
© 2015, British Arachnological Society. All Rights Reserved.Collecting trapdoor spiders (Idiopidae) for research is diffcult due to their deep, convoluted burrows and almost entirely fossorial life history. Digging idiopids ...
Progressing the possum pied piper project
(University of California, 2012)
Improving vertebrate pest control operations relies on increasing pest animal interactions with control devices (e.g., bait stations, bait bags, and/or traps). Interactions are encouraged using a variety of baits and lures ...
De novo transcriptome assembly and annotation of liver and brain tissues of common brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) in New Zealand: Transcriptome diversity after decades of population control
The common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), introduced from Australia in the mid-nineteenth century, is an invasive species in New Zealand where it is widespread and forms the largest self-sustained reservoir of ...
The Waipounamu Erosion Surface: questioning the antiquity of the New Zealand land surface and terrestrial fauna and flora
(Cambridge University Press, 2008)
The Waipounamu Erosion Surface is a time-transgressive, nearly planar, wave-cut surface. It is not a peneplain. Formation of the Waipounamu Erosion Surface began in Late Cretaceous time following break-up of Gondwanaland, ...
Molecular insights into the biogeography and species status of New Zealand's endemic Latrodectus spider species; L. katipo and L. atritus (Araneae, Theridiidae)
(American Arachnological Society, 2005)
New Zealand's endemic sand dune Latrodectus widow spider species, L. katipo and L. atritus, possess behavioral and physiological attributes likely to promote dispersal over large distances. Morphological, physiological and ...
