Call rates are often used to monitor populations of cryptic species such as kiwi by providing indices of abundance to determine if a population under study is increasing, stable or declining. Observations using human listeners are limited by biases such as variation in hearing ability and fatigue. Therefore the development of remote recording technology provides an opportunity to collect a great amount of data at little cost and effort. Call rates can also provide insight into kiwi behaviour. To gain a better understanding of how temporal and environmental conditions influence kiwi call rates, we deployed automated acoustic recorders at six sites--five inhabited by brown kiwi (Apteryx mantelli) and one inhabited by great spotted kiwi (A. haastii). Frequency of calling was clearly related to the breeding season for both species, but the pattern of calling was highly variable between sites and sometimes between years within sites. Brown kiwi call rates peaked in the first 10-40% of the night whereas great spotted kiwi call rates peaked in the second half of the night. Moonlight had no significant effect on male call rates at any site but had a significant effect on brown kiwi females at Whanganui and great spotted kiwi females at Saxon. At all sites, call rates were lower during high winds and heavy rain. Inter-seasonal variations in factors such as the quality of the previous breeding season or environmental conditions (e.g. summer droughts) could affect the ability of males, in particular, to recover to maximum breeding condition, which could, in turn, impact on call rates. Based on these findings, we recommend specific times at which kiwi call rates could be recorded to make monitoring more efficient and reliable. Because of the inherent natural variation in call rates, and the fact that chicks and juveniles rarely call, monitoring by calls is still too crude a method to determine an accurate density of a kiwi population.

Kaspar hatte sich stets bemüht, in seinem Leben das zu machen, was man von ihm erwartete. BWL studiert. In einer Werbeagentur als Berater angefangen. Sich eine Zukunft mit Frau und Kindern ausgemalt. Gelächelt. Dann weiß er nicht mehr, wozu das alles. Würde ihn das glücklich machen? Im Moment kotzte es ihn bloß an. Das war er nicht wirklich, nur - wer war er dann? Er kündigt seinen Job und reist Hals über Kopf mit einem Work and Travel-Visum nach Neuseeland. Dort will er alles hinter sich lassen und zu sich selbst finden. Starting life all over again, oder so. Nach wenigen Wochen hat Kaspar die Enge seines Lebens wieder eingeholt. Weniger denn je scheint er auch nur eine Ahnung davon zu haben, was er will. Er bewirbt sich auf Schiffen, egal wohin, einfach raus - und wird abgelehnt. Er trampt die Nordinsel hoch und runter auf der Suche nach einer Form der Selbstverwirklichung - und wird abgelehnt. Er lernt jeden Tag neue Leute kennen, die ihn doch nur weiter in die Einsamkeit treiben. Restlos pleite und ausgelaugt findet er sich am Fließband einer Bohnenfabrik wieder, wo er haarscharf am Verlust seines Verstandes vorbeischlittert. Kaspar hat jedoch zwei treue Begleiter. Seinen absurden Humor - und ein kleines, schwarzes Büchlein, das seine Stimmungen und Gedanken auffängt und so als Spiegel seines Ichs dient. Dass das kleine, schwarze Büchlein Kaspar und seinem Handeln dabei stets einen Schritt voraus ist wird ihm aber erst viel später bewusst. Er sitzt alleine vor seinem winzigen Zelt auf einer winzigen Südseeinsel, auf die ihn die immer stärkere Verunsicherung getrieben hat. Während ein Tropengewitter nach dem anderen hemmungslos über ihn hinwegzieht wird ihm bewusst, dass er sich nicht auf einer Reise, sondern auf der Flucht befindet. Er löffelt die letzten kalten Ravioli aus der Dose und fragt sich: Ist es eine Flucht, eine Flucht abzubrechen? In Australien will er es ein letztes Mal wissen, nur, um wieder an seinen falschen Ambitionen zu verzweifeln. Sein kleines, schwarzes Büchlein hatte also recht: You won’t find happiness if you’re not happy with the life you’ve got.

.Society does not generally expect its farmers to be visionaries.. Perhaps not, but longtime Maine farmer and homesteader Will Bonsall does possess a unique clarity of vision that extends all the way from the finer points of soil fertility and seed saving to exploring how we can transform civilization and make our world a better, more resilient place. In Will Bonsall's Essential Guide to Radical, Self-Reliant Gardening, Bonsall maintains that to achieve real wealth we first need to understand the economy of the land, to realize that things that might make sense economically don't always make sense ecologically, and vice versa. The marketplace distorts our values, and our modern dependence on petroleum in particular presents a serious barrier to creating a truly sustainable agriculture. For him the solution is, first and foremost, greater self-reliance, especially in the areas of food and energy. By avoiding any off-farm inputs (fertilizers, minerals, and animal manures), Bonsall has learned how to practice a purely veganic, or plant-based, agriculture—not from a strictly moralistic or philosophical perspective, but because it makes good business sense: spend less instead of making more. What this means in practical terms is that Bonsall draws upon the fertility of on-farm plant materials: compost, green manures, perennial grasses, and forest products like leaves and ramial wood chips. And he grows and harvests a diversity of crops from both cultivated and perennial plants: vegetables, grains, pulses, oilseeds, fruits and nuts—even uncommon but useful permaculture plants like groundnut (Apios). In a friendly, almost conversational way, Bonsall imparts a wealth of knowledge drawn from his more than forty years of farming experience. .My goal,. he writes, .is not to feed the world, but to feed myself and let others feed themselves. If we all did that, it might be a good beginning..

When Polly Evans read a survey claiming that the last bastion of masculinity, the real Kiwi bloke, was about to breathe his last, she was seized by a sense of foreboding. Abandoning the London winter she took off on a motorbike for the windswept beaches and golden plains of New Zealand, hoping to root out some examples of this endangered species for posterity. But her challenges didn't stop at the men. Just weeks after passing her test, Polly rode from Auckland's glitzy Viaduct Basin to the vineyards of Hawkes Bay and on to the Southern Alps. She found wild kiwis in the dead of night, kayaked among dolphins at dawn, and spent an evening on a remote hillside with a sheep-shearing gang. As she travelled, Polly reflected on the Maori warriors who carved their enemies' bones into cutlery, the pioneer family who lived in a tree, and the flamboyant gold miners who lit their pipes with five-pound notes, and wondered how their descendents have become pathologically obsessed with helpfulness and Coronation Street. The author of the highly acclaimed It's Not About the Tapas reaches some unexpected conclusions about the new New Zealand man - and finds that evolution has taken some unlikely twists.
