  • Dating the emergence of the divaricate habit in the New Zealand flora

    Maurin, Kévin Jean Louis (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    The New Zealand divaricates are a collection of shrubs, short trees and tree juveniles whose crowns are made of tough interlaced twigs branching at wide angles and bearing small leaves. These species represent c. 13% of ...
  • Diversity of New Zealand Deep-sea Amphipoda

    Knox, Matthew Andrew (University of Waikato, 2012)
    Biodiversity and the ecological and evolutionary processes which influence faunal distributions are poorly understood in deep-sea habitats. This thesis assesses diversity of deep-sea amphipod crustaceans at three taxonomic ...
  • Evolution of Bacillus subtilis: A Novel Phenotype and its Challenges

    Murray, Mitchell John (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    The enzyme LeuB from the last common ancestor of the firmicutes has been statistically recreated using several different methods. This project deals with two versions, Rec/LG and Rec/EX. To better understand these resurrected ...
  • Evolution of documents - Information and Data objects

    Jose, Appu Mathew (University of Waikato, 2012)
    The vast amount of data leading to the digital data explosion highlights the fact that the current data definition needs a change as the current systems are unable to track the evolution in a document over time without ...
  • How can genomic data inform biological invasions?

    Matheson, Paige (The University of Waikato, 2022)
    Rates of biological invasions are increasing, with global trade and climate change causing significant damage to biodiversity, human well-being, primary industries, and economies around the world. However, our ability to ...
  • Phylogeography and Ecology of New Zealand Freshwater Amphipoda (Paracalliope, Paraleptamphopus, and Phreatogammarus)

    Sutherland, Darin Lee (The University of Waikato, 2006)
    This thesis examines phylogenetic patterns in three New Zealand amphipod taxa in relation to current geographic distributions and historical climatic (e.g. glaciation, marine inundation) and geological (e.g. mountain ...
