  • The prospectors’ claim at Te Aroha

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    High up the mountain, on the edge of a precipice, the Prospectors’ Claim was at first examined only on the surface, producing some valuable stone. After the goldfield was proclaimed, two tunnels were driven under the ...
  • Prospectors’ working lives in general and at Te Aroha in particular

    Hart, Philip (Historical Research Unit, University of Waikato, 2016)
    The lure of gold attracted some men to suffer hardship in the hope of making their fortune by discovering a rich deposit. Prospecting was a skilled occupation, requiring an understanding of geology that many hopefuls lacked, ...
  • Prospects of climate resilient infrastructure in the low-income informal settlements of Dhaka - A community approach

    Rahman, Sowmen (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    This thesis focuses on the prospects of climate resilient infrastructure in the low-income settlements of Dhaka city. Numerous research findings show that low-income communities of Dhaka are living in the hazard prone areas ...
  • Protean and Boundaryless Career Attitudes in New Zealand Workers

    Morrell, Heather Rebecca (University of Waikato, 2010)
    This study explored protean and boundaryless career attitudes in a sample of New Zealand workers. Recent changes to both organisational and societal structures have significantly altered how careers are acted out. Employees ...
  • Proteases from extreme thermophiles

    Coolbear, Tim; Daniel, Roy M.; Cowan, Don A.; Morgan, Hugh W. (Wiley, 1988)
    Extremely thermophilic bacteria are those that grow optimally at 65 ℃ or higher. Comparative data are presented on extracellular proteases from two extremely thermophilic eubacteria and one extremely thermophilic ...
  • Protection of native bush by Waikato dairy farmers: A cultural perspective

    Jay, Grace Mairi M. (Department of Geography, University of Otago, New Zealand, 2001)
    Protection of native vegetation on private land is particularly important for biodiversity conservation because most of the conservation land in public ownership is 300m or more above sea level. It is thus representative ...
  • Protection of Threatened Species in New Zealand

    Wallace, Philippa Jane; Fluker, Shaun (Faculty of Law, University of Auckland, 2016)
    The need to protect threatened species and facilitate their recovery to viable population levels enjoys widespread international support, but it is the domestic legal rules of individual nations that will implement ...
  • Protein Dynamics and its Correlation to Protein Activity and Stability

    Clement, David (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    The aim of this thesis is to investigate the role of fast protein dynamics (picosecond timescale) in enzyme activity and stability, and specifically to test the hypothesis that enzyme activity and stability are inversely ...
  • Protein dynamics and stability: The distribution of atomic fluctuations in thermophilic and mesophilic dihydrofolate reductase derived using elastic incoherent neutron scattering

    Meinhold, Lars; Clement, David; Tehei, Moeava; Daniel, Roy M.; Finney, John L.; Smith, Jeremy C. (Biophysical Society, 2008-02)
