Ecological enhancement of an aphid parasitoid
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 2002)
Insects have become increasingly resistant to chemical control methods, while at the same time public awareness of the harmful effects of synthetic pesticides has increased. The search for more environmentally 'friendly' ...
The ecology of the New Zealand Haliotis species (Mollusca).
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1969)
Cox (1962) gave an excellent historical review of all published works on Haliotis beginning with Aristotle in the 4th century B.C. Because the genus is world-wide there is a great deal of literature including detailed ...
A biological study of Durvillaea antarctica (Chamisso) Hariot and D. Willana Lindauer in New Zealand.
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1977)
The biology of Durvillaea Antarctica and D. willana, two New Zealand bull-kelp seaweeds, is discussed and the taxonomy and nomenclature of all Durvillaea species reviewed and clarified. Four species are recognised: D. ...

(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1985)
The genus Xanthocnemis (Odonata: Coenagrionidae) is endemic to New Zealand and includes 4 described species. Of these X. tuanuii is confined to the Chatham Islands, X. sobrina in Northland forests and X. sinclairi is ...
Patterns of distribution and abundance of larval fish in a southern temperate region.
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 2000)
The distribution and abundance of larval fish in the Kaikoura region, on the northeastern coast of the South Island of New Zealand, was investigated over a four year period (1994 - 1997). Spatial and temporal variability ...
Physiological stress, smoltification and seawater adaptation in New Zealand's sockeye and quinnat salmon.
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1989)
This study investigated smoltification and seawater adaptability of sockeye (Oncorhynchus nerka) and quinnat salmon (O. tshawytscha). Both species were introduced into New Zealand with an anadromous population of quinnat ...
Factors controlling the distribution and abundance of a filter-feeding mayfly, Coloburiscus humeralis, in New Zealand streams.
(University of Canterbury. Department of Zoology, 2002)
The influence of abiotic and biotic factors on the distribution and abundance of filter-feeding invertebrates has not been well studied. This study examined the effect of predatory fish and invertebrates, food supply and ...
Influence of Oxygen Supply on Metabolism and Energetics in FishMuscles
(University of Canterbury. Biological sciences, 2009)
The five discrete, but related studies presented in this thesis investigate several aspects of the physiology and biochemistry of whole animals, perfused and isolated tissues from fishes and other vertebrates. Important ...
Some aspects of the biology and distribution of Amphibola crenata (Gastropoda: Pulmonata) with special reference to possible effects of pollution from sewage outfalls
(University of Canterbury. Zoology, 1979)
Shell morphology and sculpture, population size structure, sediment grain size preference, and the reproductive cycle, are described for the common estuarine mud flat gastropod, Amphibola crenata (Martyn 1784). Snails which ...
