A cross-taxonomic index for quantifying the health of farmland biodiversity
1. The development of sustainable, multi-functional agricultural systems involves reconciling the needs of agricultural production with the objectives for environmental protection, including biodiversity conservation. ...
Measurements of the cosmological evolution of magnetic fields with the Square Kilometre Array
We investigate the potential of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) for measuring the magnetic fields in clusters of galaxies via Faraday rotation of background polarized sources. The populations of clusters and radio sources ...
The LABOCA Survey of the Extended Chandra Deep Field South
We present a sensitive 870 micron survey of the Extended Chandra Deep Field South (ECDFS) using LABOCA on the APEX telescope. The LABOCA ECDFS Submillimetre Survey (LESS) covers the full 30' x 30' field size of the ECDFS ...
Doing interdisciplinarity : motivation and collaboration in research for sustainable agriculture in the UK
This paper studies knowledge production in complex, collaborative research projects that brought together academics from different disciplines, research users and agricultural businesses. It takes a comparative approach, ...

Validity, reliability and acceptability of the Imperial Nutritional Screening System (INSYST) : A tool that does not require the body mass index
Background: Nutritional screening tools are central to identifying malnourished patients, but their efficacy is often reduced as a result of difficulties in obtaining height for body mass index (BMI) calculations. The ...
Burst-polling based dynamic bandwidth allocation using adaptive minimum guaranteed bandwidth for EPONs
The enhanced burst-polling dynamic bandwidth allocation (EBDBA) method is proposed to support broadband access networks based on quality of service for Ethernet passive optical networks (EPONs). EBDBA adaptively increases ...
The interactions of winds from massive young stellar objects : X-ray emission, dynamics and cavity evolution
Two-dimensional axis-symmetric hydrodynamical simulations are presented which explore the interaction of stellar and disc winds with surrounding infalling cloud material. The star and its accompanying disc blow winds inside ...
Grammar resources for modelling dialogue dynamically
This paper argues that by analysing language as a mechanism for growth of information (Cann et al. in The Dynamics of Language, Elsevier, Oxford, 2005; Kempson et al. in Dynamic Syntax, Blackwell, Oxford, 2001), not only ...
Fast Girls, Foreigners and GIs : An Exploration of the Discursive Strategies Through Which the Status of Pre-Marital (Hetero) sexual Ignorance and Restraint Was Upheld During the Second World War
This paper explores contradictions within qualitative data gathered among women and men whose young adulthood coincided with the Second World War. These data were generated as part of an ESRC-funded project which investigated ...
