Carbon sequestration in urban landscapes: the example of a turfgrass system in New Zealand
Soil carbon sequestration was analysed in the topsoil (0–0.25 m) of putting greens of different ages (5, 9, 20, 30, 40 years) in a golf course in Palmerston North, New Zealand. The soil texture wasExpand
Phytoremediation and long-term site management of soil contaminated with pentachlorophenol (PCP) and heavy metals.
A reduction in soil hydraulic conductivity with repeated application of leachate containing PCP and metal compounds but the soil did not become anaerobic, which would need to be considered in site remediation design. Expand
The nutritional composition of Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit and Zespri® Sweet Green Kiwifruit.
Levels of dietary fibre, potassium, vitamin E, and folate are similar to other commercial kiwifruit Zespri® Gold Kiwifruit ('Hort16A') and Green Kiwif Fruit ('Hayward'), confirming kiw ifruit as a good source of these nutrients. Expand
Identification of Agrobacterium and Rhizobium species based on cellular fatty acid composition
It is concluded that whole cell fatty acid analysis should form part of the polyphasic description of new species of root nodule bacteria, with the proviso that growth conditions and analytical methods be carefully standardized. Expand
Screening of New Zealand Native White-Rot Isolates for PCP Degradation
From a pool of 367 white-rot fungi native to New Zealand (over 77 genera), isolates were screened for their bioremediation potential of pentachlorophenol (PCP). Fungi were tested for theirExpand
Leaching of copper, chromium and arsenic from treated vineyard posts in Marlborough, New Zealand.
A general survey to determine the extent of CCA leaching from treated vineyard posts in New Zealand found a significant positive correlation between post age and CCA-leaching. Expand
Cudraniaxanthone and butyrospermol acetate from the roots of Cudrania javanensis
Abstract A new xanthone, cudraniaxanthone has been isolated from Cudrania javanensis and its constitution established. Butyrospermol, its acetate (first isolation from a natural source), kaempferol,Expand
