  • Animal minds: from computation to evolution. 

    Thornton, A; Clayton, Nicola S.; Grodzinski, U (Royal Society, 2012-10-05)
    In the great Darwinian struggle for existence, all animals must tackle the problems posed by variable environments, be it finding and processing food, recognizing and attracting potential mates, avoiding predators, ...
  • Animal personality: What are behavioural ecologists measuring? 

    Carter, Alecia J.; Feeney, WE; Marshall, Harry H.; Cowlishaw, Guy; Heinsohn, R (Wiley, 2013-05)
    The discovery that an individual may be constrained, and even behave sub-optimally, because of its personality type has fundamental implications for understanding individual- to group-level processes. Despite recent interest ...
  • Animal Research, the 3Rs, and the “internet of things”: Opportunities and Oversight in International Pharmaceutical Development 

    Niemi, S; Davies, GF (Oxford University Press (OUP) for Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR), 2016-12)
    Stages of drug (and vaccine) discovery and evaluation that involve laboratory animals increasingly occur via scientific collaborations across national borders and continents. Many of those research collaborations are between ...
  • Animal sexual signals: Do they maximise or optimise information content? 

    Vaquero Alba, Iker (University of ExeterCentre for Ecology and ConservationBiosciences, 2011-12-13)
    Traditional models of sexual selection based on the handicap principle assume a direct linkage between the degree of sexual signal exaggeration and the bearer’s quality, and set out a rather inflexible scenario where ...
  • Animal Suffering in an Unfallen World: A Theodicy of Non-Human Evolution 

    Sollereder, Bethany Noël (University of ExeterTheology and Religion, 2014-10-06)
    The publication of The Origin of Species in 1859 raised a host of theological issues. Chief amongst them is the question of how a good, loving, and powerful God could create through an evolutionary process that involved ...
  • Animalism and the persistence of human organisms 

    Dupré, John (Wiley, 2014-09)
    Humans are a kind of animal, and it is a natural and sensible idea that the way to understand what it is for a human person to persist over time is to reflect on what it is for an animal to persist. This paper accepts this ...
  • Animals as producers, consumers and consumed: the complexities of trans-species sustenance in a multi-faith community 

    Hurn, Samantha (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2016-02-01)
    Anthropological engagements with nonhuman animals in religious contexts have tended to focus either on animals as sacrificial offerings, whose physical bodies are consumed by suppliants and the divine, or as symbolic ...
  • Animate Dissent: The Political Objects of Czech Stop-Motion and Animated Film (1946-2012) 

    Whybray, Adam Gerald (University of ExeterFilm Studies, 2014-12-10)
    Czech animated allegories of the period of 1946 to 2012 encode their political ideas in objects and things, rather than through conventional narrative techniques such as voice-over or dialogue. The existence of these objects ...
  • Animating the Carbon Cycle 

    Schmitz, OJ; Raymond, PA; Estes, JA; Kurz, WA; Holtgrieve, GW; Ritchie, ME; Schindler, DE; Spivak, AC; Wilson, RW; Bradford, MA; Christensen, V; Deegan, L; Smetacek, V; Vanni, MJ; Wilmers, CC (Springer Verlag, 2013-09-19)
    Understanding the biogeochemical processes regulating carbon cycling is central to mitigating atmospheric CO2 emissions. The role of living organisms has been accounted for, but the focus has traditionally been on contributions ...
  • Anisotropic properties of riddled basins 

    Ashwin, Peter; Breakspear, Michael (Elsevier, 2001)
    We consider some general properties of chaotic attractors with riddled basins of attraction (basins with positive measure but open dense complements) in dynamical systems with symmetries. We investigate how a basin of ...
  • Anisotropic small-scale constraints on energy in rotating stratified turbulence 

    Kurien, Susan; Wingate, Beth; Taylor, Mark (European Physical Society, 2008-10)
    Rapidly rotating, stably stratified three-dimensional inviscid flows conserve both energy and potential enstrophy. We show that in such flows, the forward cascade of potential enstrophy imposes anisotropic constraints on ...
  • Anisotropy, damping and coherence of magnetization dynamics in a 10 µm square Ni81Fe19 element 

    Barman, A.; Kruglyak, V.V.; Hicken, R.J.; Kundrotaite, A.; Rahman, M. (American Institute of Physics, 2003)
    We have studied magnetization precession in a square Ni81Fe19 element, of 10 μm width, by time-resolved scanning Kerr effect microscopy. From the frequency of precession, we deduce a fourfold in-plane anisotropy of about ...
