  • Ardnamurchan 3D cone-sheet architecture explained by a single elongate magma chamber 

    Burchardt, Steffi; Troll, Valentin R.; Mathieu, Lucie; Emeleus, Henry C.; Donaldson, Colin Henry (2013-10-08) - Journal article
    The Palaeogene Ardnamurchan central igneous complex, NW Scotland, was a defining place for the development of the classic concepts of cone-sheet and ring-dyke emplacement and has thus fundamentally influenced our thinking ...
  • "Back from the brink: stories of churches which refused to die" by Heather & Pat Wraight 

    Kavanagh, Joe (St Mary's College, University of St Andrews, 2007-06-01) - Book review
    Review of Heather & Pat Wraight, Back From the Brink: Stories of Churches Which Refused To Die (London: Christian Research, 2006)
  • Connected networks of sea lice populations : dynamics and implications for control 

    Adams, Thomas P.; Proud, Roland; Black, Kenneth D. (2015-05) - Journal article
    In studies of the population dynamics of parasitic sea lice and the implications of outbreaks for salmon farms, several types of mathematical models have been implemented. Delay differential equation models describe the ...
  • The determinants of corporate growth 

    Rosique, Francisco (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
    Corporate growth is a concept that has been widely treated in a specific way or as part of strategy theories, in definition and in econometric models and has also been studied in many different aspects and approaches. The ...
  • The ecology of freshwater bivalves in the Lake Sapanca Basin, Turkey 

    Ercan, Ertan; Gaygusuz, Özcan; Tarkan, Ali Serhan; Reichard, Martin; Smith, Carl (2013) - Journal article
    Despite the ecological importance and globally threatened status of freshwater bivalves, the freshwater mussel fauna of Turkey has hitherto received little attention. The aim of this study was to describe the ecology of ...
  • Essays on governance, public finance, and economic development 

    Okumu, Ibrahim Mike (University of St Andrews, 2014) - Thesis
    This thesis is composed of three distinct but related essays. The first essay studies the role of the size of the economy in mitigating the impact of public sector corruption on economic development. The analysis is based ...
  • The future of the northeast Atlantic benthic flora in a high CO2 world 

    Brodie, Juliet; Williamson, Christopher J.; Smale, Dan A.; Kamenos, Nicholas A.; Mieszkowska, Nova; Santos, Rui; Cunliffe, Michael; Steinke, Michael; Yesson, Christopher; Anderson, Kathryn M.; Asnaghi, Valentina; Brownlee, Colin; Burdett, Heidi L.; Burrows, Michael T.; Collins, Sinead; Donohue, Penelope J. C.; Harvey, Ben; Foggo, Andrew; Noisette, Fanny; Nunes, Joana; Ragazzola, Federica; Raven, John A.; Schmidt, Daniela N.; Suggett, David; Teichberg, Mirta; Hall-Spencer, Jason M. (2014-07) - Journal article
    Seaweed and seagrass communities in the northeast Atlantic have been profoundly impacted by humans, and the rate of change is accelerating rapidly due to runaway CO2 emissions and mounting pressures on coastlines associated ...
  • Growing through subsidies 

    Aloi, Marta; Lasselle, Laurence (School of Economics and Finance, University of St Andrews., 2001) - Working or discussion paper
    We consider an overlapping generation model based on Matsuyama (1999) and show that, whenever actual capital accumulation falls below its balanced growth path, subsidising innovators by taxing consumers has stabilising ...
  • Growth of generating sets for direct powers of classical algebraic structures 

    Quick, Martyn; Ruskuc, Nik (2010-08) - Journal article
    For an algebraic structure A denote by d(A) the smallest size of a generating set for A, and let d(A)=(d(A),d(A2),d(A3),…), where An denotes a direct power of A. In this paper we investigate the asymptotic behaviour of the ...
  • Ionization in atmospheres of brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets III. Breakdown conditions for mineral clouds 

    Helling, Christiane; Jardine, Moira Mary; Stark, Craig Ronald; Diver, D. (2013-04-20) - Journal article
    Electric discharges were detected directly in the cloudy atmospheres of Earth, Jupiter, and Saturn, are debatable for Venus, and indirectly inferred for Neptune and Uranus in our solar system. Sprites (and other types of ...
  • Mg structural state in coral aragonite and implications for the paleoenvironmental proxy 

    Finch, Adrian Anthony; Allison, Nicola (2008-04-19) - Journal article
    Thermodynamic calculations and inorganic precipitation experiments indicate a relationship between aragonite Mg/Ca and water temperature. This offers a route to reconstruct seawater temperatures from fossil corals. Fundamental ...
  • Muscle fibre size optimisation provides flexibility for energy budgeting in calorie-restricted coho salmon transgenic for growth hormone 

    Johnston, I.A.; Garcia de la Serrana Castillo, Daniel; Devlin, R.H. (2014-10-01) - Journal article
    Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) transgenic for growth hormone (GH) show substantially faster growth than wild-type (WT) fish. We fed GH-transgenic salmon either to satiation (1 year; TF) or the same smaller ration of ...
  • Not all supercontinents are created equal : Gondwana-Rodinia case study 

    Spencer, Christopher J.; Hawkesworth, Chris; Cawood, Peter A.; Dhuime, Bruno (2013-07) - Journal article
    The geologic records associated with the formation of the supercontinents Rodinia and Gondwana have markedly different seawater Sr and zircon Hf isotopic signatures. Rodinia-related (Grenville-Sveconorwegian-Sunsas) orogens ...
  • On the persistence of output fluctuations in high technology sectors 

    Lasselle, Laurence; Aloi, Marta; McMillan, David G. (School of Economics and Finance, University of St Andrews, 2000) - Working or discussion paper
    Fatás (2000) argues that in a cross-section analysis of countries there exists a positive correlation between long-term growth rates and the persistence of output fluctuations. The current paper extends this line of ...
  • Phenotypic plasticity in thermal tolerance : life history strategy of an invasive freshwater fish 

    Reeve, Al J. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
    Background: Temperature has a fundamental effect on organisms because it alters the speed of biochemical reactions and thus metabolism. This influence scales up to have ecosystem wide effects as the life history strategies ...
  • RNAseq analysis of fast skeletal muscle in restriction-fed transgenic coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) : an experimental model uncoupling the growth hormone and nutritional signals regulating growth 

    Garcia de la Serrana Castillo, Daniel; Devlin, Robert; Johnston, Ian Alistair (2015-07-31) - Journal article
    Background Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) transgenic for growth hormone (Gh) express Gh in multiple tissues which results in increased appetite and continuous high growth with satiation feeding. Restricting Gh-transgenics ...
