  • 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 ...
  • Are the effects of response inhibition on gambling long-lasting?

    Carey, DP; Otto-de Haart, E. Grace; Buckingham, G; Dijkerman, H. Chris; Hargreaves, Eric L.; Goodale, MA (Frontiers Media, 2015-08-28)
    Many studies have argued for distinct but complementary contributions from each hemisphere in the control of movements to visual targets. Investigators have attempted to extend observations from patients with unilateral ...
  • 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 ...
  • The ARSQ: the athletes' received support questionnaire. 

    Freeman, P; Coffee, P; Moll, T; Rees, T; Sammy, N (Human Kinetics, 2014-04)
    To address calls for context-specific measurement of social support, this article reports the development of the Athletes' Received Support Questionnaire (ARSQ) and demonstrates initial evidence for its validity. Across ...
  • Artificial light alters natural regimes of night-time sky brightness 

    Davies, Thomas W.; Bennie, Jonathan; Inger, Richard; Gaston, Kevin J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
    Artificial light is globally one of the most widely distributed forms of anthropogenic pollution. However, while both the nature and ecological effects of direct artificial lighting are increasingly well documented, those ...
  • Artistry and analysis: student experiences of UK practice-based doctorates in art and design 

    Allen-Collinson, Jacquelyn (Taylor and Francis: Routledge, 2005-11)
    During the last decade, doctoral education has been the focus of much international academic attention. This period has also witnessed the rapid growth of practice-based research degrees in art and design in the UK. To ...
  • Ascorbate deficiency influences the leaf cell wall glycoproteome in Arabidopsis thaliana 

    Sultana, N; Florance, Hannah; Johns, A; Smirnoff, Nicholas (Wiley, 2014-01-06)
    The cell wall forms the first line of interaction between the plant and the external environment. Based on the observation that ascorbate-deficient vtc mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana have increased cell wall peroxidase ...
  • Ascorbate-Deficient vtc2 Mutants in Arabidopsis Do Not Exhibit Decreased Growth 

    Lim, B; Smirnoff, N; Cobbett, CS; Goltz, JF (Frontiers Media, 2016-07-13)
    In higher plants the L-galactose pathway represents the major route for ascorbate biosynthesis. The first committed step of this pathway is catalyzed by the enzyme GDP-L-galactose phosphorylase and is encoded by two paralogs ...
