    Cook, I et al. (Ethical Consumer Research Association, 2017)
    What follows is a reflection on ‘Follow the thing: papaya’ which was first published in 2004 in Antipode: a Radical Journal of Geography (Cook et al 2004). It takes the form of an interview about its making and reception, ...
  • Phase heterogeneity in carbonate production by marine fish influences their roles in sediment generation and the inorganic carbon cycle 

    Salter, MA; Harborne, AR; Perry, CT; Wilson, RW (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-04-10)
    Marine teleost fish are important carbonate producers in neritic and oceanic settings. However, the fates of the diverse carbonate phases (i.e., mineral and amorphous forms of CaCO3) they produce, and their roles in sediment ...
