Basic density of radiata pine in New Zealand: genetic and environmental factors
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2011)
Wood basic density is among the selection criteria for many fast-grown tree species, including Pinus radiata D. Don in New Zealand. Basic density was assessed in 23,330 stem cores from 18 trials to study the heritability, ...
Compromises in the genetic evaluation system of radiata pine in New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. School of Forestry, 2014)
The Nile perch invasion in Lake Victoria: cause or consequence of the haplochromine decline?
(University of Canterbury. Mathematics and Statistics, 2016)
We review alternative hypotheses and associated mechanisms to explain Lake Victoria’s Nile perch takeover and concurrent reduction in haplochromines through a (re)analysis of long term climate, limnological and stock ...
Using hybrid physiological/mensurational modelling to predict site index of Pinus sylvestris L. in Sweden: a pilot study
Precision and bias of a model designed to predict site index of Scots pine (P. sylvestris L.) from site variables in Sweden were tested using data from 1985 inventory plots. The model was biased and relatively imprecise ...
Cell organelles and fluorescence of parenchyma cells in Eucalyptus bosistoana sapwood and heartwood investigated by microscopy
Background: Eucalyptus bosistoana is currently investigated in New Zealand for its potential to produce naturally durable timber in short-rotation plantations. Little is known of heartwood formation in young trees. The ...
