5.4 Discussion

We seem to have travelled a long way from the Industrial Revolution in Europe, but many of the impacts on New Zealand's ecosystems described here can be traced, in part at least, to reverberations from these developments.

What lessons can be drawn from this example? Perhaps I should start by emphasising this is not meant to be a complete account of the environmental history of New Zealand. For example, I have not discussed any responses from the population once they realised that harm w

Marian Baird addresses the introduction of paid maternity leave in Australia - Clare Burton Lecture
Why has it taken so long for women in Australia to achieve paid maternity leave – and what happens next? This lecture analyses changes in Australia’s attitudes to working women by examining maternity leave policies from 1979, when the first unpaid maternity leave decision of the Industrial Relations Commission was made, to the government’s announcement of a national system of paid parental leave on Mother’s Day in 2009. From 1 Jan 2010, working parents will also have the right to requ

2.5 Wavelength

So far we have seen that sound is a pressure wave, and that the spacing of the pressure variations is related to the period of vibration of the source.

A graphical representation of the pressure wave from a tuning fork closely approximates to a certain type of wave known as a sine wave.

If we freeze the pressure wave as a snap shot in time, the variations in pressure with distance from the tuning fork can be plotted as a sine wave. The vertical axis is pressure so the crest

Legislation may be passed because of some national emergency or crisis which emerges during the Government's period in office. For example, the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 was introduced to respond to the new situation arising from the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on 11 September 2001.

Conclusion

  2. Anthropogenic eutrophication has caused a widespread loss of biodiversity in many systems. Recent attempts to reverse the process are proving difficult and expensive.

  3. Symptoms of eutrophication are most readily seen in aquatic sys
