  • Mangarevan Archaeology: Interpretations using new data and 40 year old excavations to establish a sequence from 1200 to 1900 AD

    Green, Roger C.; Weisler, Marshall I. (2000-11)

    Book
    University of Otago

    An unpublished archaeological sequence supported by information from six sites excavated in the Mangarevan group in 1959 is presented in the context of additional data and current interpretations of the prehistory of southeastern Polynesia. The sequence covers the period from ca. 1200 ad to the time of early 19th century contact with Europeans, with its dating enhanced by four new radiocarbon age determinations plus four previous ones, all on samples collected in 1959. More recent information from archaeological investigations on nearby Pitcairn and Henderson islands, showing they formed part of a long-term interaction sphere with Mangareva, indicate that while the early part of the Mangareva sequence from ca. 800 to 1200 ad remains unexplored through excava- tion, buried deposits for this interval probably exist within Rikitea village on the main island of the group. An 800 ad settlement for Mangareva is consistent with a similar age and origin for the first inhabitants of Easter Island, as aspects of the 13th century assemblages from both places still remain quite comparable in style and function.

  • Guidebook for ‘Land and Lakes’ field trip, New Zealand Society of Soil Science Biennial Conference, Rotorua

    Lowe, David J. (2006-11-01)

    Book
    University of Waikato

    Welcome to Rotorua. The trip today (28th November, 2006) has twin themes: “Land and soil in the making” and “Land and soil management for cleaner water”. It offers an opportunity for participants to ‘peep behind the scenes’ at the wonderful volcanic landscapes, ash layers, soils, and waters of the Lake Rotorua−Lake Okaro−Lake Rerewhakaaitu areas in the Rotorua region. We hope the trip will be an informative, interesting and enjoyable day out with something for everyone. We will look at the linkages between soils and water and show how science and society are working together to understand and reduce the impacts of municipal, farming and forestry activities on our environment. Multiple layers of tephras, clear examples of buried soil horizons, and three remarkable soil profiles will be seen. Soil and environmental scientists, foresters, tephrochronologists (volcanic ash specialists), and volcanologists will join forces with local farmers and others to give us their perspectives at various stops during the trip.

    Welcome to New Zealand or Aotearoa – „Land of the long lingering day [twilight]‟ – and to our three-day pre-conference North Island field trip „Ashes and Issues‟. We trust your stay in New Zealand is both informative and friendly and there is something for everyone on the trip. The itinerary in brief and a map of the North Island showing the main scientific stops are shown above. At the time of guidebook preparation, we have a group of 23, including four students, on the tour with participants from Japan, Taiwan, USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand. The tour leaders are Prof David Lowe (Univ. of Waikato, Hamilton) and Dr Haydon Jones (Scion Research, Rotorua). Assistant leader is Prof Paul McDaniel (Univ. of Idaho, Moscow), on leave at the Univ. of Waikato July-December, 2008. We offer a warm welcome to you all. Because we have considerable distances to travel (especially Day 3), as well as a range of stops planned, we will need to leave the hotel at 8.00 am each day.

  • European register of marine species : a check-list of the marine species in Europe and a bibliography of guides to their identification

    Costello, Mark (2001)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    The foundation of biodiversity research and management is correctly identifying and naming species, but different names are used for the same species, and the same names for different species, in different parts of Europe. The present volume is the first coordinated attempt to list the marine species plants, algae, invertebrates, vertebrates from all over the European seas, from the Arctic and Iceland to the Canaries, the Mediterranean and the Baltic. The main part of the volume is a checklist of some 30,000 valid species, for certain groups supplemented by synonymies and basic distribution information. A bibliographical section points to ca. 700 identification guides. The volume is the collective work of 170 persons who contributed their expertise to the European Register of Marine Species (ERMS), a project part-funded by the European Commission (EC) Marine Science and Technology (MAST) research programme. It is anticipated that the European Register of Marine Species will become a standard reference tool for marine biodiversity training, research and management in Europe.

    The University of Auckland Library

    This guide is a result of an 18-month project which was funded by the Health Foundation (grant ref: 577/2766):‘A peer education service for advance care planning: a development study with older people’ to raise awareness of advance end-of-life care planning among older adults and community groups representing them. The aim of the project was to develop and evaluate the acceptability and feasibility of a peer education programme for enabling older people to obtain information about treatment and care options at the end of life.This included advice on how to talk about these issues with other individuals, their families and healthcare professionals.

  • Mutual Wills

    Cassidy, JA (2000-09)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Mutual wills are a little known but very convenient route for testators who wish to ensure that their estates devolve as they wish. They give rise to legally binding obligations on the part of the testators: a breach of these obligations is considered an equitable fraud and may be relied upon by a testator, or the intended beneficiaries under the mutual will, when seeking relief. Practitioners need to take particular care when setting up mutual wills or advising on them. It is a subject deep in misconceptions, in particular on the prerequisites for establishing mutual wills. Cassidy's text seeks to dispel the many myths. To this end, each prerequisite to establishing a mutual will is considered in turn and the relevant law examined.
