    Hinton, TG (Modern Humanities Research Association, 2017-10)
    The Tretiz of Walter de Bibbesworth has become an increasingly important touchstone in discussions of the position of French in medieval England. Yet the usual account of this text – as a functional defence of French in ...
  • 'The Anglo-Saxon disease': a pilot study of the barriers to and facilitators of the use of randomised controlled trials of social programmes in an international context. 

    Roberts, H; Petticrew, M; Liabo, K; Macintyre, S (BMJ Publishing Group, 2012-12-03)
    BACKGROUND: There appears to be considerable variation between different national jurisdictions and between different sectors of public policy in the use of evidence and particularly the use of randomised controlled trials ...
  • An Anglo-Saxon fragment of Justinus's Epitome 

    Crick, Julia (Cambridge University Press, 1987)
    In 1910, Samuel Brandt published a description and photograph of a fragment of Justinus's Epitome of the Historiae Philippicae of Pompeius Trogus. The leaf, whose present location is unknown, belonged at that time to the ...
  • Angular momentum evolution of young low-mass stars and brown dwarfs: observations and theory 

    Bouvier, Jerome; Matt, Sean P.; Mohanty, Subhanjoy; Scholz, Aleks; Stassun, Keivan G.; Zanni, Claudio (University of Arizona Press, 2014)
    This chapter aims at providing the most complete review of both the emerging concepts and the latest observational results regarding the angular momentum evolution of young low-mass stars and brown dwarfs. In the time since ...
  • Anharmonic effects in the thermoelectric properties of PbTe 

    Al-Otaibi, J; Srivastava, G.P. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2014-07-28)
    In this work, we investigate the crystal anharmonic effects in the thermoelectric properties of n-type PbTe. The lattice thermal transport coefficient is computed by employing an isotropic continuum model for the dispersion ...
  • Animal geographies II: methods 

    Buller, HJ (Sage, 2014)
    Animal geographies challenge not only the place and placing of the human and the animal but, critically, the methods we use to engage with both in relation. This second review considers the various methodological implications ...
  • Animal Geographies III: Ethics 

    Buller, HJ (SAGE Publications, 2015-04-19)
    There is no animal geography without ethics. The very coupling of the words gives rise to an ethical endeavor; an acceptance that animals have a geography, a making visible of animals within our human geography and ...
  • Animal magic 

    Ogden, Daniel (OUP, 2014-08-28)
    Abstract not available.
  • 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 roles and traces in the history of medicine, c1880-1980 

    Cassidy, A; Mason Dentinger, R; Schoefert, K; Woods, A (Cambridge University Press (CUP) for British Society for the History of Science, 2017-03-20)
    This paper argues for the need to create a more animal-centred history of medicine, in which animals are considered not simply as the backdrop for human history, but as medical subjects important in and of themselves. ...
  • 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)
