Use of remediated soil materials for sustainable plant growth (2010)
Journal Article
Rodriguez, O., Sellers, G., Sinnett, D., Moffat, A. J., & Hutchings, T. R. (2010). Use of remediated soil materials for sustainable plant growth. Land Contamination and Reclamation, 18(1), 25-39. https://doi.org/10.2462/09670513.989

Greenspace is increasingly recognized as a cost-effective end use for brownfield and contaminated sites. These sites are often unsuitable for vegetation establishment, either due to the presence of contaminants, or because the soil is of insufficient...

Estimating the influence of different urban canopy cover types on atmospheric particulate matter (PM10) pollution abatement in London, UK (2010)
Presentation / Conference
Tallis, M., Freer-Smith, P., Sinnett, D., Aylott, M., & Taylor, G. (2010, May). Estimating the influence of different urban canopy cover types on atmospheric particulate matter (PM10) pollution abatement in London, UK. Paper presented at European Geosciences Union, General Assembly 2010

In the urban environment atmospheric pollution by PM10(particulate matter with a diameter less than 10 x 10-6 m) is a problem that can have adverse effects on human health, particularly increasing rates of respiratory disease. The main contributors t... Read More about Estimating the influence of different urban canopy cover types on atmospheric particulate matter (PM10) pollution abatement in London, UK.

Food-chain transfer of zinc from contaminated Urtica dioica and Acer pseudoplatanus L. to the aphids Microlophium carnosum and Drepanosiphum platanoidis Schrank (2010)
Journal Article
Sinnett, D., Hutchings, T. R., & Hodson, M. E. (2010). Food-chain transfer of zinc from contaminated Urtica dioica and Acer pseudoplatanus L. to the aphids Microlophium carnosum and Drepanosiphum platanoidis Schrank. Environmental Pollution, 158(1), 267-271. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2009.07.008

This study examines the food-chain transfer of Zn from two plant species, Urtica dioica (stinging nettle) and Acer pseudoplatanus (sycamore maple), into their corresponding aphid species, Microlophium carnosum and Drepanosiphum platanoidis. The plant... Read More about Food-chain transfer of zinc from contaminated Urtica dioica and Acer pseudoplatanus L. to the aphids Microlophium carnosum and Drepanosiphum platanoidis Schrank.
