  • 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.

  • Trade and the environment : economic and environmental impacts of global dairy trade liberalisation

    Saunders, Caroline M.; Cagatay, Selim; Moxey, A. P.

    Book
    Lincoln University

    This paper presents a partial equilibrium model of dairy sector international trade which has been extended to include physical dairy production systems and their effect on water quality. This combined model, LTEM (Lincoln Trade and Environment Model), is then used to simulate the effects of liberalisation policies on trade flows, dairy production systems and groundwater nitrate levels across different countries. The results show expected variation in price and production impacts, but also varying effects on groundwater quality between and within countries. More specifically, whilst liberalisation lowers dairy production in the EU and reduces the EU nitrate pollution slightly, the balancing production increases elsewhere lead to marginally higher pollution in other countries. This is of policy relevance given contemporary debates about the likely net environmental effect of further trade liberalisation. © Imperial College Press.

  • A Developmental and Negotiated Approach to School Self-Evaluation

    Various Authors (2013)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    School review and evaluation is a contested policy field. The Education Review Office in New Zealand takes a collaborative process based on school self-evaluations. A contrast is with England where OfSTED uses a low-trust and punitive approach to school inspection. This volume looks in some detail at the New Zealand case in a range of articles from leading New Zealand researchers. This case is positioned globally by three international commentators and contributors from single countries.

  • Chronic illness: the temporal thief

    Jowsey, Tanisha (2016-06-29)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Chronic illness is experienced in and through time. As the term ???chronic??? suggests, the chronically ill body is one that reorients itself to the ways in which time is perceived, experienced and used, in a multiply of ways. New practices are developed and routines are established to manage chronic illness in personal and social contexts. As rhythms of bodily life change one???s expectations for the future might change, and their relations with other people (who have their own temporal rhythms) might also change. Meanings attributed to past and present experiences and practices, as well as future plans and imaginings, acquire new significance with chronic illness. For many people, chronic illness is experienced as a thief, stealing their imagined futures. Through public health and anthropological lenses this book investigates intersections between chronic illness and time.

  • A short grammar of Urama

    Brown, Jason; Muir, A; Craig, K; Anea, K (2016)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Urama (ISO: 639-3 kiw) is a language spoken primarily on Urama Island in Papua New Guinea. It is spoken in the Gulf Province, in the vicinity of Deception Bay, in the Era River Delta. Urama is part of the Kiwai language family, which is distributed along the south coast of Papua New Guinea. The Kiwai family in turn belongs to the larger Trans New Guinea stock.1 Within the Kiwai family, Urama belongs to the North-Eastern group, along with Arigibi, Gibaio, and Kope (also referred to as Gope) (Wurm 1973). The name ???Urama??? is used to refer to the language, the ethnic group, and the island. A native Urama individual is termed Urama mere ???Urama person???. Urama Island is in the Kikori district. Preliminary numbers for the 2011 census indicate the entire district has a population of 41,232. Official numbers of inhabitants on Urama Island are more difficult to obtain; however, Wurm (1971:139) has estimated the population of Urama speakers at around 1500. Foley (1986:233) estimated the population of North-Eastern Kiwai (presumably including Gibaio, Kope, and Urama, but not Arigibi, which Wurm & Hattori 1981 classify as a separate language??) at 3700 speakers, as has Wurm & Hattori (1981), and according to Ethnologue (Lewis et al. 2014, based on Foley???s 2011 estimates), there are 6000 speakers of North-East Kiwai (which includes Gibaio and Urama-Kope3 together). The adjacent areas speak various Kiwaian languages, and there is some mutual intelligibility between them. As Tok Pisin is one of the lingue franche of Papua New Guinea and is an official language, it is often the language of communication between those from other areas.

  • Anti-consumption and society: Proceedings of ICAR 2012 Brisbane

    Lee, Michael; Cherrier, H; Rundle-Thiele, S (2012)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Griffith Business School is committed to research that develops and promotes social, financial and environmental approaches that lead to sustainable businesses and communities. In Volume 2, Issue 3 of the Journal of Social Marketing, Gerard Hastings asks ???When a supermarket chain attains such dominance that it covers every corner of a country the size of the UK, threatens farmers??? livelihoods with its procurement practices, undercuts local shops and bullies planners into submission, it becomes reasonable to ask: does every little bit really help? Once the 100 billionth burger has been flipped and yet another trouser button popped it is sensible to wonder: are we still lovin??? it? As the planet heats up in response to our ever increasing and utterly unsustainable levels of consumption, it is fair to question: are we really worth it???? (Hastings, 2012). Ongoing attention needs to be directed by the research community to understand the impact that our consumption behaviour has on ourselves, our loved ones, our society, and our planet. Research attention that challenges society to question its own practices is central in assisting us to understand how we can build sustainable communities. The International Centre for Anti-consumption Research (ICAR) 2012 symposium encourages us to question whether our aim to live independently is ideal. A child???s desire to leave home may promote economic growth, but does little to keep loved ones and communities closely connected. Sustainable business practice models are needed if we are to step away from the economic growth model that underpins business today. Sharing rather than consuming may be one mechanism that business can use to reengineer business practice. Research presented at ICAR 2012 suggests that to achieve sustainable business and communities we need to understand the opposition and resistance, including boycotts that have emerged against business. This understanding is rapidly evolving in an Internet- dominated era where social media landscapes are mushrooming. To develop a more social approach that leads to sustainable business and consumption, researchers must understand that anti-consumption is not an exact opposite of consumption. A range of behaviours and their underlying motives remain under-researched, and avenues to broaden our focus are showcased at ICAR 2012. Sustainability requires that individuals and communities engage in a diverse range of behaviours including decreasing resource use (water, energy, and materials). A practical stance is introduced at ICAR 2012 with empirical evidence highlighting how community-based social marketing is being used throughout the world to foster sustainable behaviour change.
