  • Seed potato physiological age and crop establishment

    Salgado de Oliveira, Juliano; Moot, Derrick J.; Brown, H.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Seed potato physiological age progressively advances with time (chronological age), but is also influenced by temperature during storage. In this work, different combinations of constant temperatures (2, 8 and 20°C) were applied to 'Bondi‟ and 'Fraser‟ seed potatoes at different times during the storage period. It seems that using expensive cool storage in winter in Canterbury, with cool winter ambient temperatures, is unnecessary for crop establishment and by inference subsequent crop production. .

  • Native birds and their habitat needs on Canterbury rivers

    Hughey, Kenneth F. D.

    Conference item
    Lincoln University

    Canterbury’s rivers, especially the wide braided rivers, are special habitats for birdlife, occupied by a range of bird guilds.Several threatened and endangered species are enormously reliant on these rivers.The habitat needs of birdlife are highly dependent on controls maintained by river flows. There is a lack of research and at least 2 key critical habitat relationships: predation-flow and energetics. Some mitigation measures are possible but key ones are very expensive, e.g., vegetation management and predator control.

    Lincoln University

    The underlying principle of copyright in New Zealand is that any person who creates an intellectual or artistic work is entitled to attribution and benefit from endeavour in the creation of that work. Copyright provides a set of exclusive rights to creators/copyright owners in relation to their works. It provides protection for the creator in the way that work is expressed, whether written, visual, or aural, but it doesn’t protect the knowledge or ideas that are an integral part of the work. Copyright protection is automatic under the Copyright Act 1994, it doesn’t require any form of registration, and exists at the point where a work is created. The development of the internationally recognised Creative Commons licencing system has enabled creators to more easily specify the terms of reuse for their own material, while maintaining the work’s public accessibility in an open access environment. The importance of balancing the rights of users and creators is acknowledged.
