  • Advanced Fenton processing of aqueous phenol solutions: a continuous system study including sonication effects 

    Namkung, Kyu-Cheol; Burgess, Arthur E.; Bremner, David H.; Staines, Harry J. (Elsevier, 2008)
    Our previous report based on a batch reactor system for the Advanced Fenton Process (AFP) showed that pH, hydrogen peroxide and the organic substances treated are among the most important factors affecting the oxidation ...
  • Analysis of fungal fruiting patterns at the Dawyck Botanic Garden 

    Krivtsov, Vladimir; Watling, R.; Walker, S. J. J.; Knott, D.; Palfreyman, John W.; Staines, Harry J. (Elsevier, 2003-12)
    Since 1994 data on fungal fruiting have been gathered in the Dawyck Botanic Garden outside Edinburgh, including that for eight plots within a 7.5 ha wood, which has been left unmanaged in order to investigate relationships ...
  • Ecological interactions between fungi, other biota and forest litter composition in a unique Scottish woodland 

    Krivtsov, Vladimir; Bezginova, Tanya; Salmond, Ross; Liddell, Keith; Garside, Adam; Thompson, Jacqueline A.; Palfreyman, John W.; Staines, Harry J.; Brendler, A.; Griffiths, Bryan S.; Watling, Roy (Oxford University Press, 2006-04)
    The composition of forest litter and understorey layer, and fungal biomass (in terms of ergosterol) were measured in eight subplots over a winter–spring period (January to April). The sampling site was positioned in a range ...
  • Ecological interactions of heterotrophic flagellates, ciliates and naked amoebae in forest litter of the Dawyck Cryptogamic Sanctuary (Scotland, UK) 

    Krivtsov, Vladimir; Liddell, Keith; Bezginova, Tanya; Salmond, Ross; Garside, Adam; Thompson, Jacqueline A.; Palfreyman, John W.; Staines, Harry J.; Watling, Roy; Brendler, A.; Griffiths, Bryan S. (Elsevier, 2003)
    The abundance of heterotrophic flagellates, ciliates and naked amoebae was measured in 8 sites covered with different vegetation (beech, birch, beech-birch, birch-oak-beech, grass) from January to April 2001. The results ...
  • Ecological study of the forest litter meiofauna of a unique Scottish woodland 

    Krivtsov, Vladimir; Garside, Adam; Bezginova, Tanya; Thompson, Jacqueline A.; Palfreyman, John W.; Salmond, Ross; Liddell, Keith; Brendler, A.; Griffiths, Bryan S.; Watling, Roy; Staines, Harry J. (Brill Academic Publishers, 2006)
    The micro and meso-invertebrate abundance was measured, together with forest litter composition, in eight plots of differing vegetation (dominated by beech and birch) over a winter-spring period. The litter moisture content ...
  • The effects of fungal inoculum arrangement (scale and context) on emergent community development in an agar model system 

    Sturrock, Craig J.; Ritz, Karl; Samson, William B.; Bown, James L.; Staines, Harry J.; Palfreyman, John W.; Crawford, John W.; White, Nia A. (Blackwell Publishing, 2002-01)
    Consequences of initial spatial organisation of model fungal communities upon their spatio-temporal development were investigated. Dynamics of prescribed two- and three-species 'communities' developing on tessellated agar ...
  • Evidence for emergent behaviour in the community-scale dynamics of a fungal microcosm 

    Bown, James L.; Sturrock, Craig J.; Samson, William B.; Staines, Harry J.; Palfreyman, John W.; White, Nia A.; Ritz, Karl; Crawford, John W. (Royal Society, 1999-10-07)
    A stochastic cellular automaton for modelling the dynamics of a two–species fungal microcosm is presented. The state of each cell in the automaton depends on the state of a predefined neighbourhood via a set of conditional ...
  • Factors influencing theoretical knowledge and practical skill acquisition in student nurses: an empirical experiment 

    Corlett, Jo; Palfreyman, John W.; Staines, Harry J.; Marr, H. (Elsevier, 2003-04)
    A previous qualitative study [Nurse Education Today 20 (2000) 499] investigated perceptions of nurse teachers, student nurses and preceptors of the theory–practice gap said to exist within nursing. One theme was views of ...
  • Interspecific fungal interactions in spatially heterogeneous systems 

    White, Nia A.; Sturrock, Craig J.; Ritz, Karl; Samson, William B.; Bown, James L.; Staines, Harry J.; Palfreyman, John W.; Crawford, John W. (Elsevier, 1998-09)
    The community dynamics of two- and three-fungal species interactions derived for a tessellated agar model system are described. The microcosm allows for the varied prescription of: (1) the number of fungal species interacting; ...
  • Isolation and environmental study of ‘wild’ Serpula lacrymans and Serpula himantioides from the Himalayan forests 

    White, Nia A.; Low, Gordon A.; Singh, Jagjit; Staines, Harry J.; Palfreyman, John W. (Cambridge University Press, 1997-05)
    We report the first successful culturing and confirmation of identity (via sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, SDS–PAGE) of Serpula lacrymans (the dry rot fungus) derived from basidiomes and mycelia ...
  • Some aspects of complex interactions involving soil mesofauna: analysis of the results from a Scottish woodland
