Bio-Protection Research Centre
The Bio-Protection Research Centre is a Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE), that pursues multidisciplinary research to meet the biosecurity and pest management needs of New Zealand's plant-based primary industries and natural ecosystems.
It was formed by New Zealand's leading plant protection scientists.
Current research programmes span a range of applications including computational intelligence, molecular biology, biotechnology and agro-ecology.
Based at Lincoln, many of the Centre's staff and postgraduate students are situated within the greater Lincoln campus - including the University and surrounding Crown Research Institutes.
Bio-Protection's well resourced laboratories are complemented by excellent field facilities and the NZ Biotron, one of only three plant growth facilities of its kind in the world.
More information is available from the Bio-Protection Research Centre Web site.

Host-parasitoid avoidance behaviour in the context of contemporary evolution in insect classical biological control : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University (Lincoln University, 2019)Pests are increasingly invading novel environments due to global trade and travel and their management requires a greater emphasis on classical biological control than has previously been the case. This approach has been ...
Dissecting the events of the Trichoderma-plant interaction through proteomics and metabolomics approaches: Trichoderma virens and maize as model systems (Lincoln University, 2019)In nature, almost every plant is colonised by fungi. Trichoderma virens is a biocontrol fungus which has the capacity to behave as an facutaltive plant endophyte. Even though many plants are colonised by this symbiont, the ...

Effect of pollen source and stigma receptivity on seed production in ten cultivars of Dianthus plumarius L. (New Zealand Seed Technology Institute on behalf of the International Herbage Seed Group, 1999)Dianthus plumarius L. is usually propagated vegetatively, but seed propagation is an option. However, erratic and often poor seed setting can be a problem in Dianthus spp. Pollen viability, stigma receptivity and the effect ...
(New Zealand Seed Technology Institute on behalf of the International Herbage Seed Group, 1999)A radial trial design was used to determine the effect of plant density on seed yield of Caucasian clover (Trifolium ambiguum Bieb.) cv. Monaro, and the seed yield response of twelve genotypes selected from within cv. ...
