  • Arguably big biology: Sociology, spatiality and the knockout mouse project 

    Davies, Gail (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013-12)

    Underwood, CN; Davies, TW; Queirós, AM (Wiley for British Ecological Society, 2017)
    Summary 1. Despite being globally widespread in coastal regions, the impacts of light pollution on intertidal ecosystems has received little attention. Intertidal species exhibit many night-time dependent ecological ...
  • Artificial nighttime light changes aphid-parasitoid population dynamics 

    Sanders, D; Kehoe, R; Tiley, K; Bennie, J; Cruse, D; Davies, TW; Frank van Veen, FJ; Gaston, KJ (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-10-16)
    Artificial light at night (ALAN) is recognized as a widespread and increasingly important anthropogenic environmental pressure on wild species and their interactions. Understanding of how these impacts translate into changes ...
  • 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)

  • 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 ...
