Most widely held works by Raelene Boyle
Successful track & field by Ron Clarke( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the fundamentals of twenty track and field events and discusses training for them and tactics for competition
Successful athletics : from beginner to expert in forty lessons by Ron Clarke( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Production systems( Visual )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at several different case studies on plant production systems. Shows how the environment can be manipulated to produce seedlings for retail nurseries, and how vegetable seedlings are produced in the huge quantities needed by growers. Shows how tomatoes are grown hydroponically in a controlled environment, and micro-propogating techniques are also demonstrated. Also explains how salt-tolerant plants can be cloned, using tissue culture methods, to rapidly produce large numbers of suitable plants for use in high salinity areas. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Ecosystems by Carolyn Harrison( Visual )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the conflict of interest faced by growers - the need to grow plants economically, and the need to ensure against long-term destructive consequences for the environment. Examines four case studies featuring different ecosystems: managing a national park, agro-forestry, the Parwan Valley, and an urban bushland environment. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Production systems( Visual )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses three case studies to examine the principle applied to commercial plant production. Looks first at pasture management, showing how this resource must be carefully managed to ensure the quality of dairy produce. Secondly, considers broad-acre crops and explains why a six year cycle of crop rotation is used, and why crop diversity means better economic returns. Lastly, focuses on orchards, showing how modern orchards can be designed to increase yield and why good crop management is necessary. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Water by Peter F Shepheard( Visual )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gives a detailed description on the process of how plants use water. Explains osmosis, evaporation and capillary action
Soil( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at how a plant utilises essential nutrients and trace elements through fixed, exchangeable and soluble nutrient pools in soil. Demonstrates how nutrients are cycled through the food chain, and examines how the nitrogen cycle works. Explains how nutrients from the soil are taken up by the roots of plants, and how an excess or deficiency of hydrogen in the soil makes the soil acidic or alkaline. Looks at soil texture, and introduces the use of hydroponics. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Growth & propagation( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines vegetative propagation and how plant cells are created in the growing points, or meristems, of plants. Shows how potatoes are grown and how flower cuttings are imported into Australia to meet market needs. Two case studies show how tissue culture techniques are being used to combat the plant disease Phytophthora, or 'jarrah dieback', and how genetic engineering is being used to create a blue rose. Suggested audience: senior secondary, general
After the harvest( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigates the marketing of horticultural produce in both the Australian and international markets. The basic principles of marketing are applied to the specialised products from the commercial garden. Topics covered include: understanding the market, buyer behaviour, pricing, and competition and market research. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Body atlas by Gideon Koppel( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains pollination and different methods of seed dispersal, and looks in detail at meiosis, the process by which a plant ensures there is some random swapping of genetic information to guarantee that the next generation is genetically unique. Also looks at the evolution of wheat and the importance of retaining old varieties as sources of genetic material. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Light by inc Educational Activities( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines photosynthesis, the process by which a plant converts the energy from sunlight into sugars in specialised cells called chloroplasts, and respiration, the releasing of energy stored in sugars in other parts of the cell called mitochondria. Also discusses how light can be manipulated to stimulate the natural habitat, and how plant science can measure the relationship between light level and growth to determine the optimum growing conditions for a particular plant. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Temperature( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the influence of temperature on plant growth, the strategies plants use to cope with extremes in temperature, and how temperature affects commercial plant production. Shows how statistical techniques are used to determine mean temperatures for different areas, and how combining temperature and time gives the concept of heat summation, measured in degree days. Introduces the concept of crop modelling, using a computer to combine data on light intensity, temperature and the rate of photosynthesis to determine optimum growing conditions. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Friends and foes( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the major biotic factors which affect plant growth - the impact of pests and diseases, and the competition with other plants for light and resources. It also examines some of the techniques developed to control these problems and the beneficial relationships which exist between plants and other living organisms. The contemporary approach known as Integrated Pest Management - a range of methods used to control pests and diseases while minimising damage to the environment - is also investigated. Suggested audience: senior secondary
Friends & foes( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the major biotic factors which affect plant growth: the impact of pests and diseases, and the competition with other plants for light and resources
Plants and people( Visual )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the importance of plants as food, building materials and as a raw material for many industries. Plants are also important for our recreation and also the pleasure they give us
Sometimes beaten, never conquered : the Raelene Boyle story by Raelene Boyle( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Light : energy for plant growth( Visual )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program examines photosysnthesis and respiration, how light can be manipulated to stimulate the natural habitat, and how plant science can measure the relationship between light level and growth to determine the optimum growing conditions for a particular plant
Raelene : sometimes beaten, never conquered : the Raelene Boyle story by Raelene Boyle( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1968 at the age of 17, a young schoolgirl from Melbourne qualified as the second fastest 200 metre athlete in the world when she gained Silver at the Mexico Olympics. This was the start of Raelene Boyle's 14 year career
