  • Contrasting migratory responses of two closely-related seabirds to long-term climate change 

    Grecian, W. James; Taylor, Graeme A.; Loh, Graeme; McGill, Rona A. R.; Miskelly, Colin M.; Phillips, Richard A.; Thompson, David R.; Furness, Robert W. (2016-11-09) - Journal article
    Many marine predators migrate between breeding and non-breeding areas to target resources that are seasonal but spatio-temporally predictable, and so are vulnerable to climate-induced changes in prey phenology and abundance. ...
  • Contrastive reasons and promotion 

    Snedegar, Justin (2014-10) - Journal article
    A promising but underexplored view about normative reasons is contrastivism, which holds that considerations are fundamentally reasons for things only relative to sets of alternatives. Contrastivism gains an advantage by ...
  • Contrastivism about reasons and ought 

    Snedegar, Justin (2015-06-04) - Journal article
    Contrastivism about some concept says that the concept is relativized to sets of alternatives. Relative to some alternatives, the concept may apply, but relative to others, it may not. This article explores contrastivism ...
  • Contribution of mode-coupling and phase-mixing of Alfvén waves to coronal heating 

    Pagano, P.; De Moortel, I. (2017-05-12) - Journal article
    Context. Phase-mixing of Alfvén waves in the solar corona has been identified as one possible candidate to explain coronal heating. While this scenario is supported by observations of ubiquitous oscillations in the corona ...
  • The contribution of the subthalamic nucleus to executive functions in rat 

    Xia, Shuang (University of St Andrews, 2014-12-01) - Thesis
    Lesions of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) alleviate the cardinal signs of idiopathic as well as MPTP-induced Parkinson’s disease in primates. For this reason, the STN is a target for clinical treatment of Parkinson’s ...
  • Contribution to the Public Health Consultation : 'Choosing Health?' 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2004-05-01) - Report
    The Sustainable Development Commission’s submission to the Department of Health's 'Choosing Health?' consultation.
  • Control and measurement of ultrafast pulses for pump/probe-based metrology 

    Harper, Matthew R. (University of St Andrews, 2007) - Thesis
    In this thesis the control of ultrafast (10⁻¹³ s) optical pulses used for metrological applications has been investigated. Two different measurement set-ups have been considered, both based around the `pump-probe' technique, ...
  • Control control control : a reassessment and comparison of GenBank and chromatogram mtDNA sequence variation in Baltic grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) 

    Fietz, Katharina; Graves, Jefferson Alden; Olsen, Morten Tange (2013-08-16) - Journal article
    Genetic data can provide a powerful tool for those interested in the biology, management and conservation of wildlife, but also lead to erroneous conclusions if appropriate controls are not taken at all steps of the ...
  • Control of a two-dimensional electron gas on SrTiO3 (111) by atomic oxygen
