  • Anticipating ubiquitous computing: Logics to forecast technological futures 

    Kinsley, Samuel (Elsevier, 2011-03)

    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 ...
  • Assessing bundles of ecosystem services from regional to landscape scale: Insights from the French Alps
