Effect of Fire on Microarthropods in New Zealand Indigenous Grassland
Abstract Indigenous tussock grassland in New Zealand has a history of extensive pastoralism, and burning has been used to remove litter to improve establishment of aerially oversown pasture speciesExpand
Could research in the native range, and non-target host range in Australia, have helped predict host range of the parasitoid Microctonus aethiopoides Loan (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a biological
It is generally accepted that knowledge of the natural and novel host range of proposed biological control agents can help to inform predictions of potential host range in new areas of introduction.Expand
Relative abundance and seasonality of Calliphoridae and Sarcophagidae (Diptera), potential vectors of rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) in the South Island of New Zealand
Abstract In rabbit‐prone areas of the South Island of New Zealand, a field survey was undertaken of the incidence, relative abundance and seasonality of possible rabbit haemorrhagic disease virusExpand
Field parasitism of the weed biological control agent Rhinocyllus conicus by the introduced braconid, Microctonus aethiopoides
Microctonus aethiopoides Loan (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) was introduced into New Zealand in 1982 for biological control of Sitona discoideus Gyllenhal in lucerne. Parasitism of Rhinocyllus conicusExpand
FIELD PARASITISM OF RHINOCYLLUS CONICUS FROELICH (COLEOPTERA: CURCULIONIDAE) BY MICROCTONUS AETHIOPOIDES LOAN (HYMENOPTERA: BRACONIDAE) IN OTAGO AND SOUTH CANTERBURY
Microctonus aethiopoides was first recorded parasitising the weed biocontrol agent Rhinocyllus conicus in 1994. Subsequent studies found parasitism at several sites in Otago and South Canterbury. InExpand
Effect of native weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) on white clover establishment and yield in tussock grassland
Abstract A trial was carried out in unimproved tussock grassland on the East Otago Plateau of the South Island of New Zealand to investigate the impact of native broad-nosed weevils (Coleoptera:Expand
