Sediment-algal interactions on intertidal rocky reefs
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2009)
Macroalgae are a dominant feature of many rocky intertidal habitats worldwide. An understanding of the processes affecting their growth and survival, especially at early life history stages, is therefore important to an ...
Riparian management: investigating public perception and the effect of land-use, groundcover and rainfall on sediment retention.
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2014)
The physical and biological characteristics of a stream are strongly influenced by its surrounding catchment. The riparian zone acts as a buffer between land and water ecosystems and can play an essential role to retain ...
Factors limiting invertebrate recovery during stream restoration
(University of Canterbury. biological science, 2012)
Many stream restoration projects, as part of returning a degraded ecosystem to a healthier state, aim to restore aquatic invertebrate populations. Unfortunately, many attempts only „beautify‟ streams without achieving ...
