AbstractFull Text

New Zealand is an isolated archipelago of continental fragments in the South Pacific. Its native biota is unique in combining the remnants of Gondwanan species and later arrivals, all of which have passed through a filter of distance, inundation, and glaciations. However the greatest test for our...

AbstractFull Text

Higher atmospheric CO2 is predicted to stimulate the yields of most of the world's major crops, which are C3 plants. Given that many of the most troublesome agricultural weeds are C4 plants, will the competitive ability of these weeds be reduced relative to C3 crops as climate change occurs? As...
