      Although high-energy astrophysical neutrinos were discovered in 2013, their origin is still unknown. Aiming for the identification of an electromagnetic counterpart of a rapidly fading source, we have implemented a realtime ...
    • Industrial structure, democratic transition and the transformation of the developmental state 

      He, Tian (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      We have learned a lot about on how the developmental state successfully engineered rapid economic growth in the post-war period and how the developmental state transformed as a result of the emergence of socioeconomic ...

    • Interactive effects of land use, temperature, and predators determine native and invasive mosquito distributions 

      Hunt SK; Galatowitsch ML; McIntosh AR (2017)
      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 ...
    • Towards emergent replicators in a molecular artificial chemistry 

      Young, Thomas (University of Canterbury, 2017)
      All evolutionary systems, natural or artificial, are built from essentially the same three elements: variation, inheritance and selection. What then distinguishes the process of biological evolution by natural selection, ...
    • Using hybrid physiological/mensurational modelling to predict site index of Pinus sylvestris L. in Sweden: a pilot study 

      Mason EG; Holmström E; Nilsson U (2017)
      Precision and bias of a model designed to predict site index of Scots pine (P. sylvestris L.) from site variables in Sweden were tested using data from 1985 inventory plots. The model was biased and relatively imprecise ...
