Weta affairs : an investigation into the population structure and possible hybridisation of two tree weta species (hemideina) in Canterbury.
(University of Canterbury. Biological Sciences, 2015)
Recently, hybridisation has been increasingly recognised as contributing to the extinction of species; with the risk especially high for rare species hybridising with more common species. Such risks have raised concerns ...
Asymmetry in reproduction strategies drives evolution of resistance in biological control systems

Baryon acoustic oscillation methods for generic curvature: Application to the SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey
We develop methods for investigating baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) features in cosmological models with non-trivial curvature: models that are not necessarily flat, close to flat, nor with constant spatial curvature. ...
A helical LC3-interacting region mediates the interaction between the retroviral restriction factor Trim5α and mammalian autophagy-related ATG8 proteins
© 2018 Keown et al. The retroviral restriction factor tripartite motif-containing 5α (Trim5α) acts during the early postentry stages of the retroviral life cycle to block infection by a broad range of retroviruses, disrupting ...
Rubisco's chiropractor: a study of higher plant Rubisco activase
(University of Canterbury. School of Biology, 2015)
Rubisco activase operates as the chaperone responsible for maintaining the catalytic competency of Ribulose 1,5-bisphophate carboxylase oxygenase (Rubisco) in plants. Rubisco is notoriously inefficient, rapidly self-inactivating ...
The Potential for Augmented Reality to Bring Balance betweenthe Ease of Pedestrian Navigation and the Acquisition of Spatial Knowledge
(University of Canterbury. Computer Science, 2014)
Being completely lost in an unfamiliar environment can be inconvenient, stressful and, at times, even dangerous. Maps are the traditional tools used for guidance but many people find maps difficult to use. In recent years, ...
Advent of continents: A new hypothesis
© The Author(s) 2016. The straightforward but unexpected relationship presented here relates crustal thickness to magma type in the Izu-Ogasawara (Bonin) and Aleutian oceanic arcs. Volcanoes along the southern segment of ...
Role-based trust: the effect of collector identification on trust and donating behaviours
(University of Canterbury. Psychology, 2015)
The experiment investigated how job role identification can affect how people interact with a charity collector. The main predictions look at the level of identification that charity street donation collectors have with ...
Towards more Resilient Infrastructure Systems: Methods and Tools.
(University of Canterbury. Geography, 2014)
Investigating the Enigmatic Orbit of the Suspected 2.5 MJ Planet in the Nu Octantis Binary System
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2012)
ν Octantis is a spectroscopic binary with a semi-major axis and period of 2.55 AU and 2.9 years, respectively. Ramm et al. (2009) discovered a 52 ms^(-1) radial-velocity (RV) perturbation with a period of 417 days in this ...
