    Short-lived fallout isotopes, such as beryllium-7 (7Be), are increasingly used as erosion and sediment tracers in watersheds. Beryllium-7 is produced in the atmosphere and delivered to Earth's surface primarily in ...
  • Biomimetic Futures: Life, Death, and the Enclosure of a More-Than-Human Intellect 

    Johnson, ER; Goldstein, J (Routledge, 2015-03-04)
    The growing field of biomimicry promises to supplant modern industry's energy-intensive models of engineering with a mode of production more sensitively attuned to nonhuman life and matter. This article considers the ...
  • Biomimicry: New Natures, New Enclosures 

    Goldstein, J; Johnson, ER (SAGE Publications Ltd, 2015-01-16)
    Advocates of biomimicry encourage a new industrial paradigm that ostensibly leaves behind the crude violence of Francis Bacon, the domination of nature-as-machine, and a history of toxic production processes that have given ...
  • The biopolitics of animal being and welfare: dog control and care in the UK and India 

    Srinivasan, K (Institute of British Geographers / Royal Geographical Society / Wiley-Blackwell, 2013-01)
    The UK is widely regarded as a nation committed to animal welfare. On the other hand, the precarious lives of India’s stray dogs have attracted a considerable amount of international animal activist attention, and raised ...

  • Biosecurity and the topologies of infected life: From borderlines to borderlands 

    Hinchliffe, S; Allen, John; Lavau, S; Bingham, N; Carter, S (Wiley / Institute of British Geographers / Royal Geographical Society, 2012-08-10)
    Biosecurity, as a response to threats from zoonotic, food-borne and emerging infectious diseases, implies and is often understood in terms of a spatial segregation of forms of life, a struggle to separate healthy life from ...
  • Biotic and abiotic changes in ecosystem structure over a shrub-encroachment gradient in the southwestern USA. 

    Turnbull, Laura; Brazier, Richard E.; Wainwright, John; Bol, Roland (Springer Verlag, 2010)
    In this study, we investigate changes in ecosystem structure that occur over a gradient of land-degradation in the southwestern USA, where shrubs are encroaching into native grassland. We evaluate a conceptual model which ...
  • 'Born out of crisis': an analysis of moorland management agreements on Exmoor 

    Lobley, Matt; Turner, Martin; MacQueen, Greg; Wakefield, Dawn (Centre for Rural Policy Research, University of Exeter, 2005-10)
  • Boundary conditions of an active West Antarctic subglacial lake: Implications for storage of water beneath the ice sheet

    Repeat-pass ICESat altimetry has revealed 124 discrete surface height changes across the Antarctic Ice Sheet, interpreted to be caused by subglacial lake discharges (surface lowering) and inputs (surface uplift). Few of ...
  • Carbon and nutrient accumulation in secondary forests regenerating on pastures in central Amazonia 

    Feldpausch, T.R.; Rondon, MA; Fernandes, Erick; Riha, SJ; Wandelli, E (Ecological Society of America, 2004)
    Over the past three decades, large expanses of forest in the Amazon Basin were converted to pasture, many of which later degraded to woody fallows and were abandoned. While the majority of tropical secondary forest (SF) ...
  • The carbon balance of South America: A review of the status, decadal trends and main determinants
