    • Aspects of photosynthesis of aquatic macrophytes 

      Carr, Michael Terence Devlin (University of St Andrews, 1981) - Thesis
      The measurement of photosynthesis of submerged aquatic macrophytes was investigated with particular reference to water movement over a leaf surface. Light and dark 14C incorporation rates of two broadleaved pondweeks, ...
    • Carbon dioxide fixation in barley roots, with special reference to its relationship to mineral ion absorption 

      Graham, Janet Scott Douglas (University of St Andrews, 1956) - Thesis
      Carbon dioxide fixation in excised barley roots has been investigated, particularly in relation to mineral ion absorption, using carbon-14 dioxide and radiochromatography. As unsatisfactory results were obtained in the ...
    • Dynamic photoinhibition exhibited by red coralline algae in the red sea 

      Burdett, Heidi; Keddie, Victoria; MacArthur, Nicola; McDowall, Laurin; McLeish, Jennifer; Spielvogel, Eva; Hatton, Angela; Kamenos, Nicholas (2014-05-20) - Journal article
      Background: Red coralline algae are critical components of tropical reef systems, and their success and development is, at least in part, dependent on photosynthesis. However, natural variability in the photosynthetic ...
    • Exoplanet biosignatures : a review of remotely detectable signs of life 

      Schwieterman, Edward W.; Kiang, Nancy Y.; Parenteau, Mary N.; Harman, Chester E.; DasSarma, Shiladitya; Fisher, Theresa M.; Arney, Giada N.; Hartnett, Hilairy E.; Reinhard, Christopher T.; Olson, Stephanie L.; Meadows, Victoria S.; Cockell, Charles S.; Walker, Sara I.; Grenfell, John Lee; Hegde, Siddharth; Rugheimer, Sarah; Hu, Renyu; Lyons, Timothy W. (2018-05-04) - Journal item
      In the coming years and decades, advanced space- and ground-based observatories will allow an unprecedented opportunity to probe the atmospheres and surfaces of potentially habitable exoplanets for signatures of life. Life ...
    • Photochemically induced dynamic nuclear polarization observed by solid-state NMR in a uniformly 13C-isotope labeled photosynthetic reaction center 

      Paul, Shubhajit; Bode, Bela Ernest; Matysik, Jörg; Alia, Alia (2015-10-29) - Journal article
      A sample of solubilized and quinone-depleted reaction centers (RC) from the purple bacterium Rhodobacter (R.) sphaeroides wild-type (WT) has been prepared entirely 13C and 15N isotope labelled at all positions of the protein ...
    • Surface flux patterns on planets in circumbinary systems and potential for photosynthesis 

      Forgan, Duncan H.; Mead, Alexander; Cockell, Charles S.; Raven, John A. (2015-07-01) - Journal article
      Recently, the Kepler Space Telescope has detected several planets inorbit around a close binary star system. These so-called circumbinary planets will experience non-trivial spatial and temporal distributions of radiative ...
    • Use of inorganic carbon in the photosynthesis of aquatic macrophytes and microalgae 

      Allen, E. Dale (University of St Andrews, 1977) - Thesis
      A broad range of aquatic plants has been examined by means of three experimental techniques for the purpose of describing their abilities to use the different forms and concentrations of inorganic carbon which may be ...
