    • Laccases in higher plants 

      Harvey, Benjamin Manson (University of Canterbury. Biochemistry, 1997)
      The optimum method of screening for laccase in higher plant leaves was ascertained, and the method used to screen a number of plants. Four fruits from trees of the genus Prunus were also screened for laccase. A novel laccase ...

      We report results from a large Hubble Space Telescope project to observe a significant (~34,000) ensemble of main sequence stars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae with a goal of defining the frequency of inner-orbit, ...
    • The lacustrine geomorphology of Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau. 

      Pickrill, R. A. (University of Canterbury. Geography, 1976)
      This thesis studies the lacustrine geomorphology of Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau. The shorelines of the two lakes are described and mapped. The type of shoreline produced is a product of the local geology and the effects ...
    • The Ladenburg rearrangement 

      Creamer, L. K. (University of Canterbury. Chemistry, 1963)
      Ladenburg found that thermal decomposition of pyridine ethiodide led to both 2- and 4-ethylpyridine. Because no systematic study of this reaction had ever been reported, the present work was undertaken to explore the ...
    • Lagrangian theory of structure formation in relativistic cosmology. V. Irrotational fluids 

      Li Y-Z; Mourier P; Buchert T; Wiltshire DL (2018)
      We extend the general relativistic Lagrangian perturbation theory, recently developed for the formation of cosmic structures in a dust continuum, to the case of model universes containing a single fluid with a single–valued ...

    • Lahar initiation and sediment yield in the Pasig-Potrero River Basin, Mount Pinatubo, Philippines. 

      Tuñgol, Norman Manuel (University of Canterbury. Geological Sciences, 2002)
      A systemic basin-wide consideration of the complex interaction of many hydrogeomorphic and volcanic processes involved in lahar initiation emphasizes the role of rill erosion, both on tephra-covered hill slopes and on the ...
    • Land disposal of waste lubricating oil 

      Maunder, B. R. (University of Canterbury. Microbiology, 1981)
      Investigations to ascertain the factors and processes affecting the disappearance of waste lubricating oil from soil indicated that under field conditions at Timaru, New Zealand, waste lubricating oil applied at rates of ...
    • Land use planning and development suitability in Queenstown, New Zealand 

      Cunningham, Virginia (University of Canterbury. Geology, 1994)
      The demand for residential properties in Queenstown is high, but the demand is not matched by the availability of subdivided land and hence there is pressure to develop land which is less geotechnically suitable. It is ...
    • Landscape classification using GIS and national digital databases 

      Brabyn, Lars Kevin (University of Canterbury. Geography, 1996)
      This study considers whether visual landscape character can be classified using GIS. Landscape classification is needed to give landscape researchers and planners a frame of reference for communicating and comparing their ...
