This thesis investigates the establishment and operation of NHS Primary Care patient and public involvement forums and explores whether they were able to meet expectations, and fulfil their intended regulatory roles. PPI Forums, established in 2003,... Read More about Have patient and public involvement forums lived up to expectations? A qualitative study of Primary Care PPI forum groups.

Bird species with wider geographical ranges have higher blood parasite diversity but not prevalence across the African-Eurasian flyway (2023)
Journal Article
La Chapelle, M., Ruta, M., & Dunn, J. C. (2023). Bird species with wider geographical ranges have higher blood parasite diversity but not prevalence across the African-Eurasian flyway. International Journal for Parasitology, 53(14), 787-796. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijpara.2023.06.002

Avian blood parasites, from the genera Plasmodium, Haemoproteus and Leucocytozoon, are predicted to alter their range and prevalence as global temperatures change, and host and vector ranges shift. Understanding large-scale patterns in the prevalence...

Journal Article
Young, R. E., Dunn, J. C., Vaughan, I. P., Mallord, J. W., Drake, L. E., Orsman, C. J., …Symondson, W. O. C. (2024). The role of cultivated versus wild seeds in the diet of European turtle doves (Streptopelia turtur) across European breeding and African wintering grounds. Environmental DNA, 6(2), 1-18. https://doi.org/10.1002/edn3.539

Agricultural intensification is a major driver in species declines, with changes in land use resulting in widespread alteration of resource availability. An increase in anthropogenic food resources, alongside decreasing natural resources, has resulte...
