Infrared polarization in OMC-1 - Discovery of a molecular hydrogen reflection nebula
The polarization of the broadband continuum at K has been mapped in the core of the OMC-1 with high spatial resolution, and with lower resolution in a more extensive surrounding area. In addition, the first detailed ...
An accurate demand feeder for fish : suitable for microcomputer control
This paper describes an easily constructed and inexpensive demandfeeder. The feeder is driven by an AC synchronous motor and gearbox and is suitable for microcomputer control. It will operate with inexpensive commercially ...
Routes to action in reaction time tasks
Two-choice tactile RTs are no faster than 8-choice tasks, implying the existence of a direct route. However, simple tactile RTs are much faster than choice tactile RTs (Leonard, 1959). In Experiment I we show that this is ...

The development of eyespot (Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides) lesions in winter wheat crops
The development of eyespot (Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides) lesions on main shoots of plants in winter-sown wheat crops in 1981/82, 1982/83 and 1983/84 was studied by recording the incidence and penetration of leaf ...

Age of onset of schizophrenia in siblings: A test of the contagion hypothesis
The possibility that schizophrenia is horizontally transmitted has been assessed in an analysis of age of onset in 264 recorded pairs of siblings with the disease. Age of onset was found to be correlated between siblings, ...
Infrared photometry of the nuclei of early-type radio galaxies
The authors have obtained near- and mid-infrared photometry of the nuclei of both strong and weak radio galaxies. The implication of these data are that a relatively small percentage, ≅15 per cent, of radio ellipticals ...
The origin of the visual and infrared pulsations in the intermediate polar FO AQR (H2215-086)
Simultaneous visual and infrared polarimetry of the intermediate polar FO Aqr (H2215-086) shows that its visual and infrared pulsations, seen at the rotation period of the white dwarf, are not circularly polarized. This ...
Spore dispersal in splash droplets
(Cambridge University Press, 1986)
Water is the solvent for metabolic processes, it participates directly in many biochemical reactions and has a vital skeletal function. It also plays a key role in the behaviour and spread of fungi. The chapters of this ...
