Mesozoic geology of the Puerto Igeniero Ibáñez area, 46⁰ south, Chilean Patagonia
(University of Canterbury. Geology, 2001)
The Eastern Aysen Region of Patagonian Chile from 45°-47°S is characterised by Jurassic and Cretaceous silicic volcanic and volcaniclastic terrestrial rocks which outcrop on the eastern slopes of the Andes, In the Puerto ...
Critical habitat features of giant kokopu, Galaxias argenteus (Gmelin 1789)
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 2000)
The giant kokopu (Galaxias argenteus) is the largest of the galaxiid fishes, and is endemic to New Zealand. Some landlocked (non-migratory) populations exist, but giant kokopu are normally diadromous, and juveniles make ...
Bt brinjal part one and Bt brinjal part two
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2009)
Food limitation and its effects on bird behaviour
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 2001)
Stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) models make a number of predictions as to how birds should behave given different ecological conditions. These models are easily tested in the field, although there have been few studies ...
The geology and geomorphology of the Coronet Peak and Arthurs Point landslide complexes
(University of Canterbury. Geology, 2000)
The Coronet Peak and Arthurs Point Landslides have both formed in schist bedrock on the northwestern side of the Wakatipu Basin. The rock masses at both sites show evidence for the presence of many defects, such as foliation, ...
Preventing the human time bomb : Geographies of diabetes education in New Zealand
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2004)
This thesis examines the quality and effectiveness of diabetes education in New Zealand. It is said that a global diabetes epidemic is underway. If diabetes rates increase as predicted it will become one of the world's ...
Holocene surface-faulting earthquakes along the Porters Pass fault
(University of Canterbury. Engineering Geology, 2001)
The Porters Pass fault (PPF) is a prominent element of the Porters Pass-Amberley Fault Zone (PPAFZ) which forms a broad zone of active earth deformation ca 100 km long, 60-90 km west and north of Christchurch. For a distance ...
Sulfur and the origins of life
(University of Canterbury. Biochemistry, 2000)
Both organic and inorganic sulfur play an important role in fundamental contemporary biochemistry, suggesting that life's common ancestor used sulfur in its metabolism. In support of this idea is the widely held belief ...
Numerical competence in a response reproduction task
(University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2001)
A response reproduction paradigm for investigating numerical ability in animals is presented. In this experiment subjects were presented a number of light flashes (2, 4, or 6) in a sample phase, and were then required to ...
Synthesis and Characterization of Blowing Agents and Hypergolics
(University of Canterbury. Chemistry., 2007)
Twelve energetic additives 7–18 were synthesized and evaluated for use as blowing agents. All blowing agent candidates were characterized by NMR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, ...
