Youth violence: Sources and solutions in South Africa thoroughly
FPCLW: Session 9
With one-third of Aotearoa New Zealand in public conservation, what visions and challenges exist for its future development and management?
On Friday 10th July, the University of Otago Research Cluster for Natural Resources Law tackled these issues head-on at a significant symposium entitled The Future of Public Conservation Lands and Waters.
Linking landscapes: where there needs to be a focus on urban biodiversity? Dr Yolanda van Heezik, Department of Zoology.
On the Trail of African Elephants
Elephants are among the most visible of endangered species, and are one of the key ‘flagship’ species for conservation. The African elephant has attracted renewed interest recently because of the suggestion that there are actually two distinct species: the better-known savannah elephant of East and Southern Africa, and the less-studied, smaller, forest elephant
of the Central and West African rainforests. This lecture will describe an expedition I led to Ghana, an area where the two forms m

11.902 Advanced Urban Public Finance: Collective Action and Provisions of Local Public Goods (MIT)
In analyzing fiscal issues, conventional public finance approaches focus mainly on taxation and public spending.

8.311 Electromagnetic Theory (MIT)
Electromagnetic Theory covers the basic principles of electromagnetism: experimental basis, electrostatics, magnetic fields of steady currents, motional e.m.f. and electromagnetic induction, Maxwell's equations, propagation and radiation of electromagnetic waves, electric and magnetic properties of matter, and conservation laws. This is a graduate level subject which uses appropriate mathematics but whose emphasis is on physical phenomena and principles.
1.061 Transport Processes in the Environment (MIT)
This class serves as an introduction to mass transport in environmental flows, with emphasis given to river and lake systems. The class will cover the derivation and solutions to the differential form of mass conservation equations. Class topics to be covered will include: molecular and turbulent diffusion, boundary layers, dissolution, bed-water exchange, air-water exchange and particle transport.
Tanzania's War on Weevils
Beans are known worldwide as an inexpensive source of protein and other nutrients. Recently in Tanzania, though, much of that nutrition has been going to bugs rather than to people.
Tanzanian farmers have been losing nearly half of their bean harvest to the insects commonly known as weevils. And now, scientists are racing to develop beans that can resist the destructive pests.
