  • Spatial variation of effective porosity and its implications for discharge in an upland headwater catchment in Scotland 

    Deeks, L. K.; Bengough, A. G.; Low, D.; Billett, M. F.; Zhang, Xiaoxian; Crawford, John W.; Chessell, J. M.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier, 2004-05)
    Spatial and temporal measurements of shallow sub-surface soil physical properties were made within a 1 km2 upland catchment. The surface soil layer of the catchment was organic rich (>70% organic matter) with a corresponding ...
  • Systems pathology—taking molecular pathology into a new dimension 

    Faratian, Dana; Clyde, Robert G.; Crawford, John W.; Harrison, David J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2009-08)
    The wealth of morphological, histological, and molecular data from human cancers available to pathologists means that pathology is poised to become a truly quantitative systems science. By measuring morphological parameters ...
  • Three-dimensional microorganization of the soil–root–microbe system 

    Feeney, Debbie S.; Crawford, John W.; Daniell, Tim; Hallett, Paul D.; Nunan, Naoise; Ritz, Karl; Rivers, Mak; Young, Iain M. (Springer New York, 2006-07)
    Soils contain the greatest reservoir of biodiversity on Earth, and the functionality of the soil ecosystem sustains the rest of the terrestrial biosphere. This functionality results from complex interactions between ...
  • Towards a general theory of biodiversity 

    Pachepsky, Elizaveta; Crawford, John W.; Bown, James L.; Squire, Geoff (Nature Publishing Group, 2001-04-19)
    The study of patterns in living diversity is driven by the desire to find the universal rules that underlie the organization of ecosystems. The relative abundance distribution, which characterizes the total number and ...
  • Towards an evolutionary ecology of life in soil 

    Crawford, John W.; Harris, J. A.; Ritz, K.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier, 2005-02)
    The soil-microbe system is one of the most diverse components of the terrestrial ecosystem. The origin of this diversity, and its relation to the life-sustaining processes that are mediated by the resident microbial ...
  • Visualization, modelling and prediction in soil microbiology 

    O'Donnell, Anthony G.; Young, Iain M.; Rushton, Steven P.; Shirley, Mark D.; Crawford, John W. (Nature Publishing Group, 2007-09)
    The introduction of new approaches for characterizing microbial communities and imaging soil environments has benefited soil microbiology by providing new ways of detecting and locating microorganisms. Consequently, soil ...
