Victoria University (VU or Vic Uni) is a public research university based in Melbourne, Australia.
Buddhadasa, Saman 
Australian research into TPH and BTEX test methods has, to date, not been coordinated and no standard methods have been agreed to. Overseas research also lacks acceptable solutions for the standardisation of TPH and BTEX methodologies. Since Australia carries out many thousands of analyses of TPH and BTEX on contaminated soils annually research into and assessment of current methods is require ...

Hydraulic conductivity and chemical compatibility of some Victorian soils used as liners for waste containment
Rahman, Fashiur 
Wastes generated due to human activities pose a threat to the environment, and their safe and economical disposal is warranted. Landfilling of these wastes is still the most widely practised and viable alternative for their disposal. This is usually accomplished by using engineered waste containment systems in which compacted liners of predominantly clay soils are employed between waste and na ...

The exotic invasive Chilean needle grass Nassella. neesiana (Trin. & Rupr.) Barkworth hasbeen recognised as a major threat to biodiversity in the endangered natural grasslands ofsouth-eastern Australia. Research was undertaken in Canberra and Melbourne grasslands toexamine mechanisms by which N. neesiana invades native grasslands, the impacts ofinvasion on vascular plant and invertebrate biodi ...

Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the Southern emu-wren (Stipiturus malachurus: Aves)
Maguire, G et al. 
We isolated and characterized eight novel microsatellite loci in the southern emu-wren (Stipiturus malachurus). We used nonradioactive polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based techniques to screen an enriched genomic DNA library. Based on genotypes from a single population, six loci showed no evidence of null alleles and were polymorphic (allele range = 2–9, mean heterozygosity = 0.57), and one l ...

Pittock, Barry et al. 
Rainfall variability in Australia is generally among the highest in the world, largely due to the dominant influence of the El Nin˜o–Southern Oscillation. Australian climate has been characterized by wet and dry periods with sometimes sudden transitions from one mode to the other. Synoptic explanations and teleconnections are discussed, with an emphasis on the Murray–Darling Basin (MDB). Flood ...

Garnaut, Ross et al. 
Rapid global economic growth, centred in Asia but now spread across the world, is driving rapidgreenhouse-gas emissions growth, making earlier projections unrealistic. This paper develops new, illustrativebusiness-as-usual projections for carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuels and other sources and for non-CO2greenhouse gases. Making adjustments to 2007 World Energy Outlook projections to refl ...
