    Batres, Carlota; Perrett, David I. (2016-04) - Journal article
    One developmental factor that is associated with variation in reproductive strategy is pubertal timing. For instance, women who experience earlier menarche have their first pregnancy earlier and prefer more masculinized ...

  • Early UV ingress in WASP-12b: measuring planetary magnetic fields 

    Vidotto, A. A.; Jardine, M.; Helling, Ch. (2010-10-20) - Journal article
    Recently, Fossati et al. observed that the UV transit of WASP-12b showed an early ingress compared with the optical transit. We suggest that the resulting early ingress is caused by a bow shock ahead of the planetary orbital ...

    Stress during early life can cause disease and cognitive impairment in humans and non-humans alike [1]. However, stress and other environmental factors can also program developmental pathways [2, 3]. We investigate whether ...
  • Earth's middle age 

    Cawood, Peter Anthony; Hawkesworth, Chris (2014) - Journal article
    Earth's middle age, extending from 1.7 to 0.75 Ga, was characterized by environmental, evolutionary, and lithospheric stability that contrasts with the dramatic changes in preceding and succeeding eras. The period is marked ...

(2014-12) - Journal article
    In this paper, we derive the fundamental properties of 1SWASPJ011351.29+314909.7 (J0113+31), a metal-poor (−0.40 ± 0.04 dex), eclipsing binary in an eccentric orbit (~0.3) with an orbital period of ~14.277 d. Eclipsing M ...

    Birch, Ian J. (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-23) - Thesis
    The subject treated in this thesis is the doctrine of the church among the English Calvinistic Baptists in the period, circa 1640-1660. This timeframe covers the significant phase of early Calvinistic Baptist emergence in ...
  • Echolocation : clicking for supper 

    Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2015-04-29) - Journal article
    When close to prey, porpoises actively widen their sonar beam, which may make it harder for the prey to escape.
  • Echolocation detections and digital video surveys provide reliable estimates of the relative density of harbour porpoises
