  • Effects of climate change on maize production, and potential adaptation measures: a case study in Jilin Province, China

    Wang, Meng; Li, Yinpeng; Ye, Wei; Bornman, Janet F.; Yan, Xiaodong (Inter-Research, 2011)
    Jilin is among the most important grain-producing provinces in China. Its maize production plays an important role in local and national food security. In this study, we developed a new approach to assess the vulnerability ...
  • Effects of solar ultraviolet radiation on terrestrial ecosystems. Patterns, mechanisms, and interactions with climate change

    Ballare, Carlos L.; Caldwell, Martyn M.; Flint, Stephen D.; Robinson, S.A.; Bornman, Janet F. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011)
    Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is a minor fraction of the solar spectrum reaching the ground surface. In this assessment we summarize the results of previous work on the effects of the UV-B component (280–315 nm) on terrestrial ...

  • The nature of natural: defining natural character for the New Zealand context

    Froude, Victoria A.; Rennie, Hamish Gordon; Bornman, Janet F. (New Zealand Ecological Society, 2010)
    New Zealand has a long-standing statutory policy goal to preserve the natural character of the coastal environment and various freshwater environments and their margins. In the absence of an authoritative definition, it ...
  • Statistical downscaling of regional daily precipitation over southeast Australia based on self-organizing maps

    Yin, Chonghua; Li, Yinpeng; Ye, Wei; Bornman, Janet F.; Yan, Xiaodong (Springer, 2010)
    This paper presents a novel statistical downscaling method based on a non-linear classification technique known as self-organizing maps (SOMs) and has therefore been named SOM-SD. The relationship between large-scale ...
