  • Biparental incubation-scheduling : no experimental evidence for major energetic constraints 

    Bulla, M; Cresswell, Will; Rutten, A; Valcu, M; Kempenaers, B (2015) - Journal article
    Incubation is energetically demanding, but it is debated whether these demands constrain incubation-scheduling (i.e., the length, constancy, and timing of incubation bouts) in cases where both parents incubate. Using 2 ...

  • Birds build camouflaged nests 

    Bailey, Ida Elizabeth; Muth, Felicity; Morgan, Kate; Meddle, Simone L.; Healy, Susan Denise (2015-01) - Journal article
    It is assumed that many birds attempt to conceal their nests by using camouflage. To our knowledge, however, no previous experimental studies have explicitly tested this assumption. To explore whether birds choose materials ...
  • Bis(phenylphosphonic) anhydride

    The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C12H12O5P2, contains four independent molecules, generating two dimers via pairs of intermolecular O-H center dot center dot center dot O hydrogen bonds, forming R-2(2) (8) rings. ...
  • Bis(trifluoromethyl)methylene addition to vinyl-terminated SAMs : a gas-phase C–C bond-forming reaction on a surface 

    Adamkiewicz, Malgorzata; O'Hagan, David; Hähner, Georg (2014-05-20) - Journal article
    Vinyl-terminated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on silicon oxide substrates were chemically modified by the addition of a bis(trifluoromethyl)methylene group in a rare gas-phase C–C bond-forming reaction to directly ...
  • Black Virgins, Close Encounters : re-examining the ‘semi-documentary’ in postmigrant theatre 

    Stewart, Lizzie (V&R unipress, 2015-01) - Book item
    In 2006 the premiere of Feridun Zaimoglu and Günter Senkel’s play Black Virgins (Schwarze Jungfrauen) became the first play by a Turkish-German writer to feature on the front cover of Germany’s influential theatre magazine, ...

  • Blessed are those who weep : gratia lacrymarum in thirteenth-century hagiographies 

    Knight, Kimberley-Joy (University of St Andrews, 2014) - Thesis
    Hagiographies and canonisation processes from the thirteenth century are frequently saturated with descriptions of tears. The tears of holy men and women were both the means to, and apex of, spiritual perfection. Using ...
  • Blind injustice : Jesus' prophetic warning against unjust judging (Matt 7:1-5) 

    Chandler, Christopher N. (University of St Andrews, 2010-11) - Thesis
    This dissertation seeks to provide a plausible alternative to the consensus interpretation of Jesus' "do not judge" teaching in Matt 7:1-5. While the overwhelming majority of recent interpreters understand "do not judge" ...
  • Blinded by beauty: attractiveness bias and accurate perceptions of academic performance 

    Talamas, Sean; Mavor, Kenneth Ian; Perrett, David Ian (2016-02-17) - Journal article
    Despite the old adage not to ‘judge a book by its cover’, facial cues often guide first impressions and these first impressions guide our decisions. Literature suggests there are valid facial cues that assist us in assessing ...
  • Blocking Variant Surface Glycoprotein synthesis in Trypanosoma brucei triggers a general arrest in translation initiation 

    Smith, Terry K; Vasileva, Nadina; Gluenz, Eva; Terry, Stephen; Portman, Neil; Kramer, Susanne; Carrington, Mark; Michaeli, Shulamit; Gull, Keith; Rudenko, Gloria (2009-10-26) - Journal article
