  • Anticipating ubiquitous computing: Logics to forecast technological futures 

    Kinsley, Samuel (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    Visions of the future predict spaces apparently teaming with ever more novel and pervasive technologies. Significant amongst such forecasts is the notion of ‘ubiquitous computing’ (ubicomp), understood as an affordance or ...
  • Are Inventory Based and Remotely Sensed Above-Ground Biomass Estimates Consistent? 

    Hill, TC; Williams, M; Bloom, AA; Mitchard, ETA; Ryan, CM (Public Library of Science, 2013-09-19)
    Carbon emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation are poorly known at local, national and global scales. In part, this lack of knowledge results from uncertain above-ground biomass estimates. It is ...
  • Arguably big biology: Sociology, spatiality and the knockout mouse project 

    Davies, Gail (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013-12)
    Following the completion of the Human Genome Project (HGP), a critical challenge has been how to make biological sense of the amassed sequence data and translate this into clinical applications. A range of large biological ...
  • Asking about the future: methodological insights from energy biographies 

    Shirani, Fiona; Parkhill, Karen; Butler, Catherine; Groves, Chris; Pidgeon, Nick; Henwood, Karen (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2015-04-23)
    Temporality is fundamental to qualitative longitudinal (QLL) research, inherent in the design of returning to participants over time, often to explore moments of change. Previous research has indicated that talking about ...

    Assessments of ecosystem services (ES) and biodiversity (hereafter ecological parameters) provide a comprehensive view of the links between landscapes, ecosystem functioning and human well-being. The investigation of ...
  • Assessing the vulnerability of blanket peat to climate change using an ensemble of statistical bioclimatic envelope models 

    Clark, JM; Gallego-Sala, Angela V.; Allott, TEH; Chapman, SJ; Farewell, T; Freeman, Chris; House, JI; Orr, Harriet G.; Prentice, I. Colin; Smith, P (Inter Research, 2010-12-30)
    We assessed the vulnerability of blanket peat to climate change in Great Britain using an ensemble of 8 bioclimatic envelope models. We used 4 published models that ranged from simple threshold models, based on total annual ...
  • Atmospheres of progress in a data-based school 

    Finn, M (SAGE Publications, 2015-03-23)
    In this article, I seek to extend the geographies of education, youth and young people by offering an account of the significant shifts taking place in contemporary English state education around the production and use of ...
  • Beryllium-7 wet deposition variation with storm height, synoptic classification, and tree canopy state in the mid-Atlantic USA 

    Karwan, D.L.; Siegert, C.M.; Levia, D.F.; Pizzuto, J.; Marquard, Julia; Aalto, R.E.; Aufdenkampe, A.K. (Wiley, 2015-06-08)
    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 ...
  • Bioclimatic envelope model of climate change impacts on blanket peatland distribution in Great Britain 

    Gallego-Sala, Angela V.; Clark, JM; House, JI; Orr, Harriet G.; Prentice, I. Colin; Smith, Pete; Farewell, T; Chapman, SJ (Inter Research, 2010-12-30)
    Blanket peatlands are rain-fed mires that cover the landscape almost regardless of topography. The geographical extent of this type of peatland is highly sensitive to climate. We applied a global process-based bioclimatic ...
  • Biome-specific effects of nitrogen and phosphorus on the photosynthetic characteristics of trees at a forest-savanna boundary in Cameroon 

    Ferreira Domingues, Tomas; Ishida, F.Y.; Feldpausch, T.R.; Grace, J.; Meir, P; Saiz, G.; Sene, Olivier; Schrodt, F.; Sonké, B; Taedoumg, HE; Veenendaal, E; Lewis, Simon L.; Lloyd, J (Springer Verlag, 2015-03-10)
    Photosynthesis/nutrient relationships of proximally growing forest and savanna trees were determined in an ecotonal region of Cameroon (Africa). Although area-based foliar N concentrations were typically lower for savanna ...
  • 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 ...
