  • Every child’s future matters 

    Sustainable Development Commission (Sustainable Development Commission, 2010-04) - Report
    Following the release of its 'Every child matters' programme, the Department for Children, Schools and Families (now the Department for Education) asked the SDC to explore how the environment might affect the success of ...
  • Every group is a maximal subgroup of the free idempotent generated semigroup over a band 

    Dolinka, I; Ruskuc, Nik (2013-05) - Journal article
    Given an arbitrary group G we construct a semigroup of idempotents (band) BG with the property that the free idempotent generated semigroup over BG has a maximal subgroup isomorphic to G. If G is finitely presented then ...

  • Evidence for a genetic basis of urogenital carcinoma in the wild California sea lion 

    Browning, Helen M.; Acevedo-Whitehouse, Karina; Gulland, Frances M. D.; Hall, Ailsa J.; Finlayson, Jeanie; Dagleish, Mark P.; Billington, Karen J.; Colegrove, Kathleen; Hammond, John A. (2014-12) - Journal article
    Although neoplasia is a major cause of mortality in humans and domestic animals, it has rarely been described in wildlife species. One of the fewexamples is a highly prevalent urogenital carcinoma in California sea lions ...
  • Evidence for density-dependent changes in body condition and pregnancy rate of North Atlantic fin whales over four decades of varying environmental conditions 

    Williams, Robert; Vikingsson, Gisli A.; Gislason, Astthor; Lockyer, Christina; New, Leslie; Thomas, Len; Hammond, Philip Steven (2013-03) - Journal article
    A central theme in ecology is the search for pattern in the response of a species to changing environmental conditions. Natural resource management and endangered species conservation require an understanding of density-dependent ...
  • Evidence for Emulation in Chimpanzees in Social Settings Using the Floating Peanut Task 

    Tennie, Claudio; Call, Josep; Tomasello, Michael (2010-05-12) - Journal article
    Background: It is still unclear which observational learning mechanisms underlie the transmission of difficult problem-solving skills in chimpanzees. In particular, two different mechanisms have been proposed: imitation ...

    Moll, Philip J.W.; Kushwaha, Pallavi; Nandi, Nabhamila; Schmidt, Burkhard; Mackenzie, Andrew (2016-02-11) - Journal article
    Electron transport is conventionally determined by the momentum-relaxing scattering of electrons by the host solid and its excitations. Hydrodynamic fluid flow through channels, in contrast, is determined partly by the ...

    Ward, Philip N.; Holden, Matthew T. G.; Leigh, James A.; Lennard, Nicola; Bignell, Alexandra; Barron, Andy; Clark, Louise; Quail, Michael A.; Woodward, John; Barrell, Bart G.; Egan, Sharon A.; Field, Terence R.; Maskell, Duncan; Kehoe, Michael; Dowson, Christopher G.; Chanter, Neil; Whatmore, Adrian M.; Bentley, Stephen D.; Parkhill, Julian (2009-01-28) - Journal item
    Background: Streptococcus uberis, a Gram positive bacterial pathogen responsible for a significant proportion of bovine mastitis in commercial dairy herds, colonises multiple body sites of the cow including the gut, genital ...
  • Evidence for orbital order and its relation to superconductivity in FeSe0.4Te0.6 

    Raj Singh, Udai; White, Seth C.; Schmaus, Stefan; Tsurkan, Vladimir; Loidl, Alois; Deisenhofer, Joachim; Wahl, Peter (2015-10-16) - Journal article
    The emergence of nematic electronic states which break the symmetry of the underlying lattice is a recurring theme in many correlated electron materials, among them the high temperature copper-oxide and iron-based ...
  • Evidence for subwavelength imaging with positive refraction 

    Ma, Yun Gui; Sahebdivan, Sahar; Ong, C. K.; Tyc, Tomas; Leonhardt, Ulf (2011-03-09) - Journal article
    The resolution of lenses is normally limited by the wave nature of light. Imaging with perfect resolution was believed to rely on negative refraction, but here we present experimental evidence for subwavelength imaging ...
  • Evidence for the continued use of medieval medical prescriptions in the sixteenth century : a fifteenth-century remedy book and its later owner 

    Connolly, Margaret (2016-04) - Journal article
    This article examines a fifteenth-century remedy book, Oxford, Bodleian Library, Rawlinson c. 299, and describes its collection of 314 medieval medical prescriptions. The recipes are organised broadly from head to toe, and ...
  • Evidence for weak or linear conformity but not for hyper-conformity in an everyday social learning context 

    Claidiere, Nicolas; Bowler, Mark Timothy; Whiten, Andrew (2012-02-20) - Journal article
    Conformity is thought to be an important force in cultural evolution because it has the potential to stabilize cooperation in large groups, potentiate group selection and thus explain uniquely human behaviors. However, the ...
  • Evidence from tunneling spectroscopy for a quasi-one-dimensional origin of superconductivity in Sr2RuO4 

    Firmo, I. A.; Lederer, S.; Lupien, C.; Mackenzie, A. P.; Davis, J. C.; Kivelson, S. A. (2013-10-28) - Journal article
    To establish the mechanism of unconventional superconductivity in Sr2RuO4, a prerequisite is direct information concerning the momentum-space structure of the energy gaps Delta(i) (k), and in particular whether the pairing ...
  • Evidence of guided resonances in photonic quasicrystal slabs 

    Ricciardi, Armando; Pisco, Marco; Cutolo, Antonello; Cusano, Andrea; O'Faolain, Liam; Krauss, Thomas F.; Castaldi, Giuseppe; Galdi, Vincenzo (2011-08-29) - Journal article
    We report on the experimental evidence of Fano-type guided resonances (GRs) in aperiodically-ordered photonic quasicrystal slabs. With specific reference to the Ammann-Beenker (8-fold symmetric, quasiperiodic) octagonal ...

  • Evidence of the trade-off between starvation and predation risks in ducks 

    Zimmer, Cedric; Boos, Mathieu; Poulin, Nicolas; Gosler, Andrew; Petit, Odile; Robin, Jean-Patrice (2011-07-18) - Journal article
    The theory of trade-off between starvation and predation risks predicts a decrease in body mass in order to improve flight performance when facing high predation risk. To date, this trade-off has mainly been validated in ...
  • Evolution of a complex locus : exon gain, loss and divergence at the Gr39a locus in Drosophila 

    Gardiner, Anastasia; Barker, Daniel; Butlin, Roger K.; Jordan, William C.; Ritchie, Michael G. (2008-01-30) - Journal article
    Background. Gene families typically evolve by gene duplication followed by the adoption of new or altered gene functions. A different way to evolve new but related functions is alternative splicing of existing exons of a ...

    MacQueen, Daniel John; Garcia de la Serrana Castillo, Daniel; Johnston, Ian Alistair (2013-05) - Journal article
    Whole genome duplication (WGD) was experienced twice by the vertebrate ancestor (2 rounds; 2R), again by the teleost fish ancestor (3R) and most recently in certain teleost lineages (4R). Consequently, vertebrate gene ...
  • The evolution of behaviour : a genetic approach 

    Parker, Darren J. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis
    In this thesis I investigated the genetic basis of several behaviours to answer questions surrounding the evolution and mechanistic basis of behaviour. Firstly, I took a single-gene approach to investigate the influence ...
