Abstract Grass grub (Costelytra zealandica) larval growth under controlled environment conditions was significantly lower on Trifolium arvense, T. affine, T. semipilosum, and T. uniflorum than on white clover (T. repens). There was no difference in growth of larvae feeding on T. repens and T. ambiguum. Weight gains on two seedlines of T. uniflorum were not significantly different from those on Lotus pedunculatus, a known resistant plant, but larval growth was significantly lower on a third… Expand
Phosphate response of Trifolium uniflorum compared with T. repens and some T. repens × T. uniflorum hybrids
TLDR
Variation among the hybrid families in their response to changing soil P confirmed the potential for interspecific hybridisation with T. uniflorum to increase the tolerance of white clover to low soil P levels, through incorporation of traits related to edaphic adaptations. Expand
Seed production trait associations and inheritance in interspecific hybrids between Trifolium repens (white clover) and Trifolium uniflorum
TLDR
No negative associations between seed production and root traits were found in the hybrids, nor were there any negative associations among head production, persistence and foliage production. Expand
Comparing mating designs to restore seed production of interspecific hybrids between Trifolium repens (white clover) and Trifolium uniflorum
TLDR
This study analysed the basis for the poor seed production and investigated breeding strategies for overcoming the problem, and found it was possible to retain a theoretical average of 25% of T. uniflorum genome and still achieve high seed production per plant. Expand
Trifolium interspecific hybridisation: widening the white clover gene pool
TLDR
Interspecific hybrid breeding of white clover has the potential to enable the development of resilient perennial clovers for seasonally dry, infertile grassland environments in many parts of the world. Expand
Effect of hybridisation with Trifolium uniflorum on tap root survival in white clover
TLDR
Improved survival was not expressed as strongly in older BC1 plants, tap root deterioration was slower than in white clover and BC2, and there is potential for targeted selection of specific genotypes and traits to further increase tap root lifespan in BC1 hybrids. Expand

PEST POPULATIONS DURING THE FIRST SIX YEARS IN RYEGRASS PASTURES CONTAINING WHITE OR CAUCASIAN CLOVER
Insect and nematode pests in ryegrass pasture with white (WC) or Caucasian clover (CC) were similar in species composition. In droughtprone soil, however, WC abundance fluctuated markedly over sixExpand
Belowground herbivory by insects: influence on plants and aboveground herbivores.
TLDR
In later successional habitats, root feeders appear to be the more potent force in driving plant performance and plant community composition and their importance in natural areas, particularly in the tropics. Expand
INSECT PESTS ASSOCIATED WITH WHITE AND CAUCASIAN CLOVER IN A BAY OF PLENTY DAIRY PASTURE
TLDR
Pasture plots containing white and Caucasian clover were established on a summer-dry coastal Bay of Plenty farm and maintained under dairy grazing into a second year, and Epyaxa rosearia was the most significant defoliating insect on CaucasianClover. Expand
