Investigation of the patterning of a lyotropic mixture onto silver paste electrodes via ink jet printing and its effect on the electroreduction of hydrogen peroxide (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Piano, M., Gonzalez-Macia, L., & Killard, A. (2019, September). Investigation of the patterning of a lyotropic mixture onto silver paste electrodes via ink jet printing and its effect on the electroreduction of hydrogen peroxide. Poster presented at Electrochem 2012

Detection of hydrogen peroxide is widely used in a range of applications, from pharmaceutical to clinical and food industry, as well as environmental analysis. Peroxide is generated during many biological reactions and its concentration can be stoich... Read More

Lemurs in cacao: presence and abundance within the shade plantations of northern Madagascar (2019)
Journal Article
Webber, A. D., Solofondranohatra, J. S., Razafindramoana, S., Fernandez, D., Parker, C. A., Steer, M., …Allainguillaume, J. (in press). Lemurs in cacao: presence and abundance within the shade plantations of northern Madagascar. Folia Primatologica, https://doi.org/10.1159/issn.0015-5713

The recognition that much biodiversity exists outside protected areas is driving research to understand how animals survive in anthropogenic landscapes. In Madagascar, cacao (Theobroma cacao) is grown under a mix of native and introduced exotic shad... Read More

Herbal teas are used as therapeutic vehicles in many forms of traditional medicine and are a popular global beverage. The purpose of this scoping review was to examine the evidence relating to the clinical efficacy and safety of herbal teas, and to i... Read More

Cumulative weather effects can impact across the whole life cycle (2019)
Journal Article
Hindle, B. J., Pilkington, J. G., Pemberton, J. M., & Childs, D. Z. (in press). Cumulative weather effects can impact across the whole life cycle. Global Change Biology, https://doi.org/10.1111/gcb.14742

Predicting how species will be affected by future climatic change requires the underlying environmental drivers to be identified. As vital rates vary over the lifecycle, structured population models derived from statistical environment-demography rel... Read More
