  • Becoming the leader: Leadership as material presence 

    Ford, J; Harding, N; Richardson, S (SAGE Publications, 2017-01-28)

    Morlighem, M; Williams, CN; Rignot, E; An, L; Arndt, JE; Bamber, JL; Catania, G; Chauché, N; Dowdeswell, JA; Dorschel, B; Fenty, I; Hogan, K; Howat, I; Hubbard, A; Jakobsson, M; Jordan, TM; Kjeldsen, KK; Millan, R; Mayer, L; Mouginot, J; Noël, BPY; O'Cofaigh, C; Palmer, S; Rysgaard, S; Seroussi, H; Siegert, MJ; Slabon, P; Straneo, F; van den Broeke, MR; Weinrebe, W; Wood, M; Zinglersen, KB (American Geophysical Union (AGU) / Wiley, 2017-09-18)
    Greenland's bed topography is a primary control on ice flow, grounding line migration, calving dynamics, and subglacial drainage. Moreover, fjord bathymetry regulates the penetration of warm Atlantic water (AW) that rapidly ...

    As pollinators, bees are cornerstones for terrestrial ecosystem stability and key components in agricultural productivity. All animals, including bees, are associated with a diverse community of microbes, commonly referred ...
  • BEEHAVE: A systems model of honeybee colony dynamics and foraging to explore multifactorial causes of colony failure 

    Becher, MA; Grimm, V; Thorbek, P; Horn, J; Kennedy, PJ; Osborne, JL (Wiley, 2014-03-04)
    Summary: A notable increase in failure of managed European honeybee Apis mellifera L. colonies has been reported in various regions in recent years. Although the underlying causes remain unclear, it is likely that a ...
  • Beer mat advertising 'Mildred Pierce' 

    British Film Institute; Crawford, Joan (2009-11-10)
  • Bees associate colour cues with differences in pollen rewards 

    Nicholls, E; de Ibarra, NH (Company of Biologists, 2014-07-30)
    In contrast to the wealth of knowledge concerning sucrose-rewarded learning, the question of whether bees learn when they collect pollen from flowers has been little addressed. The nutritional value of pollen varies ...
  • BEESCOUT: A model of bee scouting behaviour and a software tool for characterizing nectar/pollen landscapes for BEEHAVE. 

    Becher, MA; Grimm, V; Knapp, J; Horn, J; Twiston-Davies, G; Osborne, JL (Elsevier, 2016-09-16)
    Social bees are central place foragers collecting floral resources from the surrounding landscape, but little is known about the probability of a scouting bee finding a particular flower patch. We therefore developed a ...
  • Beetroot juice ingestion during prolonged moderate-intensity exercise attenuates progressive rise in O2 uptake 

    Tan, R; Wylie, LJ; Thompson, C; Blackwell, JR; Bailey, SJ; Vanhatalo, A; Jones, AM (American Physiological Society, 2018-01-04)
    Nitrate-rich beetroot juice (BR) supplementation increases biomarkers of nitric oxide bioavailability with implications for the physiological responses to exercise. We hypothesized that BR supplementation before and during ...

  • Begriff und Wahrnehmung von Atmosphären 

    Hauskeller, Michael (Universitätsverlag der TU Berlin, 2015)
    Atmosphären sind überall. Wo auch immer wir sind, wie auch immer der Raum geartet ist, in dem wir uns befinden, ob in natürlicher oder künstlicher, vom Menschen gestalteter Umgebung, irgendeine Atmosphäre herrscht darin.
  • Behavioral evidence suggests facultative scavenging by a marine apex predator during a food pulse 

    Hammerschlag, N; Bell, I; Fitzpatrick, R; Gallagher, AJ; Hawkes, LA; Meekan, MG; Stevens, JD; Thums, M; Witt, MJ; Barnett, A (Springer Verlag, 2016-08-08)
    The ability of predators to switch between hunting and scavenging (facultative scavenging) carries both short-term survival and long-term fitness advantages. However, the mechanistic basis for facultative scavenging remains ...
  • Behavioral flexibility vs. rules of thumb: how do grey squirrels deal with conflicting risks? 

    Leaver, LA; Jayne, K; Lea, SEG (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-09-21)
    In order to test how flexibly animals are able to behave when making trade-offs that involve assessing constantly changing risks, we examined whether wild Eastern grey squirrels showed flexibility of behavioral responses ...
  • Behavioral plasticity and G × E of reproductive tactics in Nicrophorus vespilloides burying beetles 

    Carter, Mauricio J.; Head, ML; Moore, AJ; Royle, NJ (Wiley / Society for the Study of Evolution, 2015-03-10)
    Phenotypic plasticity is important in the evolution of traits and facilitates adaptation to rapid environmental changes. However, variation in plasticity at the individual level, and the heritable basis underlying this ...
  • Behavioral realizations using companion matrices and the smith form 

    Hughes, TH (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2016-01-01)
    Classical procedures for the realization of transfer functions are unable to represent uncontrollable behaviors. In this paper, we use companion matrices and the Smith form to derive explicit observable realizations for a ...
