Preliminary myrtle rust results, lockdown science, PhD research on soil microbiota and much more . . .
Alexa Byers writes about her PhD research into kauri dieback and soil microbiota
This project aimed to assess the relative risk posed by myrtle rust to six Myrtaceae species under natural New Zealand conditions. Here’s what they found.
Over the 2019/2020 field season myrtle rust disease occurrence and severity was recorded fortnightly at two field sites in the Rotorua district. Here’s what they found.
Non-productive vegetation on farms can increase ecosystem services such as decomposition and nitrogen mineralisation, according to a recent study.
The best way to build resilience in threatened species is often debated, but do we even know how to measure what we’re trying to compare?
