  • New Zealand pest fish species: Koi carp and Gambusia – fact sheet

    Tempero, Grant Wayne (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    New Zealand has a total of about 36 native freshwater fish species, and a further 22 (39% of all freshwater fish) have been introduced from overseas. Like all introduced species, they have some impact on New Zealand's ...
  • Nutrient and sediment loads from farm drains – fact sheet

    Tempero, Grant Wayne; Hamilton, David P. (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    Runoff from intensive agriculture has been identified as a major contributor to the decline of New Zealand's freshwater ecosystems. Excessive nutrient and sediment losses to lakes and rivers lead to reduced water clarity ...
  • On the foreigner

    Arndt, Sonja Kathrina (Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research, 2015)
    Who is ‘the foreigner’? What does it mean, to be a foreigner, and how does foreignness feel, look, or smell? A concrete definition of the foreigner would perhaps belie the very term, so I attempt here to illustrate the ...
  • Paleolimnology to determine lake reference conditions – fact sheet

    Kpodonu, Alfred Theodore Nutefe Kwasi; Hamilton, David P. (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    Paleolimnology is the study of the early history of lakes based on sediment composition. Lake sediments build up in undisturbed areas of lake bottoms (e.g. in deep central basins) over long periods of time. These sediments ...
  • Pest Fish Control - Fact Sheet

    Tempero, Grant Wayne; Collier, Kevin J.; Hicks, Brendan J. (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    Due to their negative impacts on water quality and native biodiversity in New Zealand, regional councils have included a number of introduced freshwater fish species such as koi carp, rudd, brown bullhead catfish, goldfish, ...
  • Pest fish detection using environmental DNA – fact sheet

    Banks, Jonathan C.; Hogg, Ian D. (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    Molecular tools using DNA sequencing can improve pest fish management by ensuring accurate identification of fish, especially larval fish, without the need for specialist taxonomic knowledge. DNA is made of four chemicals; ...
  • The Professional Practice of Teaching in New Zealand (6th Edition), edited by Mary F. Hill & Martin Thrupp [BOOK REVIEW]

    The Sixth Edition of The Professional Practice of Teaching in New Zealand (Eds Mary F. Hill and Martin Thrupp) updates this long standing initial teacher education (ITE) text. It has a new look and the chapters convey a ...
  • Remote sensing of water quality – fact sheet

    Hicks, Brendan J.; Allan, Mathew Grant (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    Evaluating water quality is a key tool in lake management. Typically water quality samples are restricted to a limited number of point samples collected in situ in the field, which can be time consuming and costly. Also, ...

  • A Surgical implant conductor with increased radio frequency alternating current resistance

    Scott, Jonathan B.; McCabe, Steven Owen (2016)
    In one aspect the invention provides a surgical implant conductor formed from a length of conductive material which exhibits increased radio frequency alternating current resistance. This conductive material defines an ...
  • Tales of the unexpected: halloysite delivers surprises and a paradox

    Lowe, David J.; Churchman, G. Jock (New Zealand Society of Soil Science, 2016)
    Despite being first described nearly 200 years ago, halloysite still has the capacity to surprise. We report here the remarkable discovery in New Zealand of two new morphologies for this 1:1 Si:Al layered aluminosilicate ...
  • Whole-lake fish removal – fact sheet

    Hicks, Brendan J. (Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ), University of Waikato, 2015)
    A central objective of our lake restoration research was to remove invasive fish from 5 lakes of >5 ha in area to restore indigenous biodiversity. We chose a variety of lakes with dominant invasive fish species ranging ...
