  • The effects of marine eukaryote evolution on phosphorus, carbon and oxygen cycling across the Proterozoic–Phanerozoic transition 

    Lenton, TM; Daines, S (Portland Press, 2018-06-29)
    A ‘Neoproterozoic oxygenation event’ is widely invoked as a causal factor in animal evolution, and often attributed to abiotic causes such as post-glacial pulses of phosphorus weathering. However, recent evidence suggests ...
  • Early Palaeozoic ocean anoxia and global warming driven by the evolution of shallow burrowing. 

    van de Velde, S; Mills, BJW; Meysman, FJR; Lenton, TM; Poulton, SW (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-07-02)
    The evolution of burrowing animals forms a defining event in the history of the Earth. It has been hypothesised that the expansion of seafloor burrowing during the Palaeozoic altered the biogeochemistry of the oceans and ...
  • Changing storminess and global capture fisheries

  • Smart city as anti-planning in the UK 

    Cowley, Robert; Caprotti, Federico (SAGE Publications, 2018-07-13)
    Critical commentaries have often treated the smart city as a potentially problematic ‘top down’ tendency within policy-making and urban planning, which appears to serve the interests of already powerful corporate and ...
  • Nonhuman citizens on trial: The ecological politics of a beaver reintroduction 

    Crowley, SL; Hinchliffe, S; McDonald, RA (SAGE Publications, 2017-04-25)
    Wildlife reintroductions can unsettle social and ecological norms, and are often controversial. In this paper, we examine the recent (re)introduction of Eurasian beavers to England, to analyse responses to an unauthorised ...

    Although strictly protected, populations of the hazel dormouse Muscardinus avellanarius in the UK declined by 72% from 1993 to 2014. Using National Dormouse Monitoring Programme data from 300 sites throughout England and ...
  • Habitat preferences of hazel dormice Muscardinus avellanarius and the effects of tree-felling on their movement 

    Goodwin, CED; Hodgson, DJ; Bailey, S; Bennie, J; McDonald, RA (Elsevier, 2018-06-07)
    Modern management of multifunctional woodlands must address many and various demands, including for recreation, timber production and the conservation of biodiversity. The responses of individuals and populations of protected ...
  • Rethinking energy demand governance: exploring impact beyond ‘energy’ policy 

    Butler, C; Parkhill, KA; Luzecka, P (Elsevier, 2017-12-26)
    The challenges of climate change and energy security, along with problems of fuel poverty and energy justice bring imperatives to create transitions in energy demand. Academic research and theory have begun to highlight ...
  • The small stuff of barely spiritual practices 

    Lea, J; Philo, C; Cadman, L (Routledge, 2018-02-20)
    This book intends to open to up new questions and approaches through the theme of spirituality, pushing the boundaries on current topics and introducing innovative new ideas, including esoteric or radical spiritual practices.
  • Non-representational theory and health geographies

    During the fifth phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP5) substantial efforts were made to systematically assess the skill of Earth system models. One goal was to check how realistically representative ...
  • On which timescales do gas transfer velocities control North Atlantic CO2 flux variability? 

    Couldrey, MP; Oliver, KIC; Yool, A; Halloran, PR; Achterberg, EP (American Geophysical Union (AGU) /Wiley, 2016-05-17)
    The North Atlantic is an important basin for the global ocean's uptake of anthropogenic and natural carbon dioxide (CO 2 ), but the mechanisms controlling this carbon flux are not fully understood. The air-sea flux of CO ...
  • Selection for Gaia across multiple scales 

    Lenton, TM; Daines, SJ; Dyke, JG; Nicholson, AE; Wilkinson, DM; Williams, HTP (Elsevier, 2018-07-02)

  • The suppression of welcome 

    Gill, N (Geographical Society of Finland, 2018-05-27)
