  • Readability of hearing-related information on the Internet in the German language 

    Toth, Bernadett (University of Canterbury, 2017)
    Purpose: To describe the readability of hearing-related information on the Internet in the German language and compare the readability between webpage origins (by country), type of organisation (i.e., government, non-profit, ...
  • Effects of suspended sediment on freshwater fish 

    Cavanagh JE; Harding JS (Landcare Research, 2014)
    This report integrates new information on the effects of suspended sediment on fish with existing literature information to further develop guidance for determining acceptable suspended sediment concentrations in freshwater ...
  • Cognition, psychiatric symptoms and conversion to dementia in Parkinson’s disease 

    Horne, Kyla-Louise (University of Canterbury, 2017)
    Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder which can have a significant effect on a patient’s quality of life. Psychiatric symptoms and cognitive decline are common, with dementia (PDD) ultimately ...
  • Molecular phylogeny of the genus metrosideros and population genetics of some New Zealand species within the genus. 

    Melesse, Kumilign Asmare (University of Canterbury, 2017)
    This thesis attempts to answer three questions about the phylogeny and genetics of the New Zealand genus Metrosideros which contains iconic tree species of New Zealand. The first question (Chapter 2) is at the scale of the ...
  • The ecosystem approach to fisheries management in CCAMLR 

    Wi, Toni (University of Canterbury, 2017)
    The ecosystem approach to fisheries is part of a wider framework of marine ecosystem-based management, or EBM. EBM is dedicated to managing the environment in a sustainable way, taking into consideration societal and ...
  • A usability comparison of canvas, topographic and street base maps. 

    McPherson, Rory Ivan (University of Canterbury, 2016)
    Basemaps are a fundamental component of most maps, and may affect the usability of the map. Cartographic guidelines recommend that map authors select a basemap appropriate for the map’s intended topic, scale, purpose, ...
  • Structural and functional analysis of the GABARAP interaction motif (GIM) 

    Rogov VV; Stolz A; Ravichandran AC; Rios-Szwed DO; Suzuki H; Kniss A; Löhr F; Wakatsuki S; Dötsch V; Dikic I; Dobson RCJ; McEwan DG (2017)
    © 2017 The Authors. Published under the terms of the CC BY 4.0 license. Through the canonical LC3 interaction motif (LIR), [W/F/Y]-X 1 -X 2 -[I/L/V], protein complexes are recruited to autophagosomes to perform their ...
  • Maximal differential uniformity polynomials 

    Aubry Y; Herbaut F; Voloch JF (2017)
    We provide an explicit infinite family of integers m such that all the polynomials of F2n [x] of degree m have maximal differential uniformity for n large enough. We also prove a conjecture of the third author in these cases.
  • Watershed Urbanization Linked to Differences in Stream Bacterial Community Composition 

    Hosen JD; Febria CM; Crump BC; Palmer MA (2017)
    Urbanization strongly influences headwater stream chemistry and hydrology, but little is known about how these conditions impact bacterial community composition. We predicted that urbanization would impact bacterial ...
  • On the Geo-Indicativeness of Non-Georeferenced Text 

    Adams BT; Janowicz K (2012)
    Geographic location is a key component for information retrieval on the Web, recommendation systems in mobile computing and social networks, and place-based integration on the Linked Data cloud. Previous work has addressed ...
  • Semantic Referencing - Determining Context Weights for Similarity Measurement 

    Adams BT; Janowicz, Krzysztof; Raubal, Martin (Springer, 2010)
    Semantic similarity measurement is a key methodology in various domains ranging from cognitive science to geographic information retrieval on the Web. Meaningful notions of similarity, however, cannot be determined ...
  • Bio-mimicking TiO2 Architectures for Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity under UV and Visible Light 

    Hashemizadeh I; Tsang DCW; Ng YH; Wu Z; Golovko V; Yip CK (2017)
    Green leaves are responsible for natural photosynthesis in plants and their unique structures offer the most efficient blueprint for artificial materials in terms of solar energy capture and utilisation. The full ...
  • Semantic Signatures for Places of Interest 

    Janowicz K; Adams BT (2014)
  • The observational roots of reference of the semantic web 

    Scheider S; Janowicz K; Adams BT (2012)
    Shared reference is an essential aspect of meaning. It is also indispensable for the semantic web, since it enables to weave the global graph, i.e., it allows different users to contribute to an identical referent. For ...
  • The mobilisation of Antarctic research 

    Innes, Rachel (University of Canterbury, 2017)
    This dissertation is concerned with how Antarctic research is made possible through complex and interdependent networks, institutions, and relations. It investigates the experiences, challenges, and concerns of a selection ...
  • Impact of Volcanic Ash on Road and Airfield Surface Skid Resistance 

    Blake DM; Wilson TM; Cole JW; Deligne NI; Lindsay JM (2017)
    Volcanic ash deposited on paved surfaces during volcanic eruptions often compromises skid resistance, which is a major component of safety. We adopt the British pendulum test method in laboratory conditions to investigate ...
  • Mixotrophy drives niche expansion of verrucomicrobial methanotrophs 

    Stott MB; Carere CR; Power JF; Cook GM; Hards K; Houghton KM; McDonald B; Collet C; Gapes DJ; Sparling R; Boyd ES; Greening C (2017)
    Aerobic methanotrophic bacteria have evolved a specialist lifestyle dependent on consumption of methane and other short-chain carbon compounds. However, their apparent substrate specialism runs contrary to the high ...
  • Geographic Information Observatories for Supporting Science 

    Adams BT; Gahegan M; Gupta P; Hosking R (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2014)
    In this paper we explore two questions that we feel are im- portant to investigate further if geographic information observatories are to be fruitful research endeavor in GIScience. The rst question is sim- ply `what ...
  • COSIT at Twenty: Measuring Research Trends and Interdisciplinarity 

    Grossner K; Adams BT (2011)
    We have performed a topic classification procedure on a text corpus consisting of the proceedings for all ten meetings of the Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT) held between 1992 and 2009, providing a measure ...
  • A general framework for conflation 

    Adams BT; Li, Linna; Raubal, Martin; Goodchild, Michael F. (2010)
    To date GIS-based conflation research has primarily been concerned with specific algorithms and tools for performing conflation on specific types of datasets. Most of these techniques focus on matching the geometry of ...
