Effects of suspended sediment on freshwater fish
(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 ...
Watershed Urbanization Linked to Differences in Stream Bacterial Community Composition
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 ...
Socio-cultural and ecological indicators of Canterbury estuaries
Estuaries support a wide range of human activities and values, but are one of the most anthropogenically impacted ecosystems in the world. Ki uta ki tai (mountain to sea) is a holistic view of waterways, that is embodied ...
Geographic Information Observatories for Supporting Science
(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 ...
Possible mechanisms of pollination failure in hybrid carrot seed and implications for industry in a changing climate
Approximately one-third of our food globally comes from insect-pollinated crops. The dependence on pollinators has been linked to yield instability, which could potentially become worse in a changing climate. Insect-pollinated ...
Interactive effects of land use, temperature, and predators determine native and invasive mosquito distributions
1. Land-use and climate change could alter the distribution of both native and exotic mosquitoes by changing abiotic and biotic characteristics of freshwater habitats. We initially studied the influence of land use on ...
The affect of effect: affirmative political ecologies in monitoring climate change adaptation interventions
All over the world, climate change adaptation interventions (CCAIs) are being implemented in a variety of ways, but mostly monitored using outcomes-based monitoring and evaluation (M&E) frameworks that are prone to ...
Returning Water Data to Communities in Ndola, Zambia: A Case Study in Decolonising Environmental Science
(University of California Press, 2019)
Many scientific research projects carried out in developing countries gather data and fail to return any summary of the findings to the community that provided the data. Residents from communities experiencing water issues ...
