  • Biotic interactions are an unexpected yet critical control on the complexity of an abiotically driven polar ecosystem.

    Lee, Charles Kai-Wu; Laughlin, Daniel C.; Bottos, Eric M.; Caruso, Tancredi; Joy, Kurt; Barrett, John E.; Brabyn, Lars; Nielsen, Uffe N.; Adams, Byron J.; Wall, Diana H.; Hopkins, David W.; Pointing, Stephen B.; McDonald, Ian R.; Cowan, Don A.; Banks, Jonathan C.; Stichbury, Glen; Jones, Irfon; Zawar-Reza, Peyman; Katurji, Marwan; Hogg, Ian D.; Sparrow, Ashley D.; Storey, Bryan C.; Green, T.G. Allan; Cary, S. Craig (2019)
    Abiotic and biotic factors control ecosystem biodiversity, but their relative contributions remain unclear. The ultraoligotrophic ecosystem of the Antarctic Dry Valleys, a simple yet highly heterogeneous ecosystem, is a ...
  • Comparing plasma and faecal measures of steroid hormones in Adelie penguins Pygoscelis adeliae

    Ninnes, Calum Edward; Waas, Joseph R.; Ling, Nicholas; Nakagawa, Shinichi; Banks, Jonathan C.; Bell, Dudley G.; Bright, A.; Carey, P.W.; Chandler, J.; Hudson, Q.J.; Ingram, J.R.; Lyall, K.; Morgan, Dai K.J.; Stevens, Mark I.; Wallace, J.; Möstl, E. (Springer, 2010)
    Physiological measurements of both stress and sex hormones are often used to estimate the consequences of natural or human-induced change in ecological studies of various animals. Different methods of hormone measurement ...
  • Comparison of the efficiency of three methods of isolating fish DNA from environmental samples

    Banks, Jonathan C.; Watson, Nathan; Hogg, Ian D. (Environmental Research Institute, Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Waikato, 2014)
    The Lake Ecosystem Restoration New Zealand (LERNZ) project was initiated to restore indigenous biodiversity in lakes in part by developing new pest fish management and control technologies. One objective of the management ...
  • Development and validation of hydrolysis assays for seven species of exotic fish

    Banks, Jonathan C.; Hogg, Ian D. (Environmental Research Institute, The University of Waikato., 2014)
    Determining the distribution and presence of exotic taxa are significant challenges for eradication efforts and for restoration ecology. One method is detect the presence of introduced species that has shown promise is the ...
  • Economical genotyping of little blue penguin (Eudyptula minor) clades from feather-based DNA

    Clark, Alan J.; Banks, Jonathan C.; Waas, Joseph R. (New Zealand Ecological Society., 2013)
    Determination of clade membership is a crucial requirement for many research questions addressing phylogeography, population structure, mating patterns, speciation, and hybridisation. The little blue penguin (Eudyptula ...
