Recent advances in marine microbiology - a selection of critical evaluations of research papers, Dr Colin Munn, Heather Guy, Grace Phillips, Elizabeth Robertson, p. 303-320.
(University of Plymouth, 2009)The growth of the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) network has been considerable in recent years, and coverage can be expected in the majority of larger ports around the world. Additionally, the positioning ...
(University of Plymouth, 2009)Nitric oxide (NO) was discovered as a biologically active molecule over two decades ago and it has since been recognised as one of the most versatile components of the immune system, with involvement in both cytotoxic and ...
Applying palaeoecology to conservation: a long-term perspective for informed management of a fynbos nature reserve (University of Plymouth, 2009)This investigation proposes that long-term perspectives are essential in ecological conservation/restoration. Such a perspective is particularly important for fynbos, which has been substantially altered by an unspecified ...
(University of Plymouth, 2009)The generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a normal occurrence in the life of a cell. ROS are derived from both exogenous and endogenous sources and take part in a plethora of normal physiological mechanisms from ...
Labrador Sea Water formation in the Irminger Basin and its dependence on the North Atlantic Oscillation (University of Plymouth, 2009)Historical temperature and salinity data from the Irminger basin were analysed to determine if Labrador Sea Water forms in the Irminger Basin and if deep convection in the region is dependent on the North Atlantic ...
(University of Plymouth, 2009)Seventy undergraduate students participated in a self-report study to investigate the perception of concurrent versus retrospective chocolate-related cravings. This study was interested in exploring whether retrospective ...
Understanding unconscious plagiarism: the effects of idea elaboration and perceived idea quality on later recall and recognition of ideas (University of Plymouth, 2009)Previous research has shown that idea improvement and perceived idea quality have differential effects on recall-own and generate-new plagiarism. Participants completed a generative task in pairs and read some ideas ...
Patterns of abundance and diversity in epiphytic orchids on Parashorea malaanonan trees in Danum Valley, Sabah (University of Plymouth, 2009)Research in forest canopies has been restricted by access difficulties for a long time, however in the last 20 years techniques to provide access into tree canopies have been developed, now opening a field of biology to ...
