    This paper presents the results of an initial application of a prototype simulation and visualisation tool (S-City VT) thatwas developed to enable all stakeholders, regardless of background or experience, to understand, ...
  • The enigma of facial asymmetry: Is there a gender specific pattern of facedness? 

    Hardie, Scott M.; Hancock, Peter; Rodway, Paul; Penton-Voak, Ian; Carson, Derek; Wright, Lynn (Taylor & Francis, 2005-07)
    Although facial symmetry correlates with facial attractiveness, human faces are often far from symmetrical with one side frequently being larger than the other (Kowner, 1998). Smith (2000) reported that male and female ...
  • Environmental modification and niche construction: developing O2 gradients drive the evolution of the Wrinkly Spreader 

    Koza, Anna; Moshynets, Olena; Otten, Wilfred; Spiers, Andrew J. (International Society for Microbial Ecology, 2011-04)
    The evolutionary success of the novel Wrinkly Spreader (WS) genotypes in diversifying Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 populations in static liquid microcosms has been attributed to the greater availability of O2 at the ...
  • The environmental plasmid pQBR103 alters the single-cell raman spectral profile of Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW25 

    Ude, Susanne; Bailey, Mark J.; Huang, Wei E.; Spiers, Andrew J. (Springer Verlag, 2007-04)
    Although plasmids are ubiquitous amongst phytosphere pseudomonads, the advantage and costs of plasmids for the bacterial host remain unclear. The application of single-cell Raman spectral analysis to plasmid–bacterial ...
  • Environmentally co-occurring mercury resistance plasmids are genetically and phenotypically diverse and confer variable context-dependent fitness effects 

    Hall, James P. J.; Harrison, Ellie; Lilley, Andrew K.; Paterson, Steve; Spiers, Andrew J.; Brockhurst, Michael A. (Wiley, 2015-06-25)
    Plasmids are important mobile elements that can facilitate genetic exchange and local adaptation within microbial communities. We compared the sequences of four co-occurring pQBR-family environmental mercury resistance ...
  • Enzymatic upgrade of old paperboard containers 

    Pala, H.; Lemos, Adília; Mota, M.; Gama, F. M. (Elsevier, 2001)
    The use of enzymes in secondary fiber (old paperboard containers) upgrading was investigated. The following aspects were analyzed: (i) the effect of several enzymes and (non-hydrolytic) cellulose-binding domains on the ...
  • Epicureanism and the poetics of consumption 

    Wood, Dawn (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010-07)
    Consumption, ‘to use up, to destroy’, is a dirty word. It conjures piles of rubbish; it suggests an extravagant attitude. We, each one of us hoping to be a unique, careful individual, can feel offended at being referred ...
  • Epidemics in networks of spatially correlated three-dimensional root-branching structures 

    Handford, Thomas P.; Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Costa, Luciano da F.; Miazaki, Mauro; Neri, Franco M.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2011-03)
    Using digitized images of the three-dimensional, branching structures for root systems of bean seedlings, together with analytical and numerical methods that map a common susceptible–infected–recovered (‘SIR’) epidemiological ...
  • Essays are not the only way: a case report on the benefits of authentic assessment 

    MacAndrew, Siobhan B. G.; Edwards, Katherine (Symposium Journals Ltd, 2002)
    Authentic assessments resemble the tasks that graduates will be required to perform in the workplace. This report compares grades obtained for essays with those for two authentic assessments, namely, the presentation of a ...
  • Establishing design best practices for users with cognitive and learning difficulties 

    Keates, Simeon; Varker, Philip (Springer Verlag, 2007)
    In many respects, cognitive difficulties and learning impairments are the poor relation of Universal Access (UA) research. Research into emotional impairments is even less common. A simple review of almost any general UA ...
