Agri-environmental policy is at a crossroads. Over the past 20 years, a wide range of policies addressing the environmental implications of agricultural production have been implemented at the Federal level. Those policies have played an important role in reducing soil erosion, protecting and restoring wetlands, and creating wildlife habitat. However,(More)
Printed on 100% recycled post-consumer waste with vegetable based inks. Executive summary The global market for electrical and electronic equipment continues to expand, while the lifespan of many products becomes shorter. Consequently, the waste stream of obsolete electrical and electronic products, commonly called " e-waste " , is also vast and growing,(More)
Irish turloughs are hydrologically dynamic karst wetlands that are frequently used as marginal grazing land. We hypothesised that flood duration (FD) is a key driver of the spatial distribution of selected soil properties, and consequently turlough grazing practices. Six soil samples were collected during dry periods from eighteen turloughs between 2006 and(More)
In the framework of the coordinated project called CINAMON, a list of ground-based stations associated with the Network for the Detection of Stratospheric Change (NDSC) contribute to the quasi-global validation of ENVISAT atmospheric chemistry data. This paper reports on such activities performed during the Commissioning Phase (CP) of the satellite. After a(More)
In cooperation with many international research workers and breeders, our team at The New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research Limited, New Zealand, has developed 195 lines from H. vulgare x H. bulbosum hybrids. These lines contain discrete introgressions of H. bulbosum chromatin in an H. vulgare background. The size and location of the(More)

The temporal transition of species dominance following disturbances is strongly influenced by taxon life histories. In temporary water bodies, seasonal progression can be rapid. The community response of aquatic littoral invertebrate communities to disturbance was measured across four temporary water bodies (turloughs) representing a hydroperiod gradient in(More)
