Synchrotron X-ray diffraction measurements of the FCC/FCT phase transformation in PtMnCr pinning layers (2001)
Journal Article

We examine the change in structure of the pinning layer of PtMnCr/NiFe bilayers in the as-deposited state and upon annealing, using synchrotron radiation. The X-ray measurements show that the degree of transformation of the FCC phase of PtMnCr to the...

A sensitive and rapid assay for homologous recombination in mosquito cells: impact of vector topology and implications for gene targeting (2001)
Journal Article

BACKGROUND: Recent progress in insect transgenesis has been dramatic but existing transposon-based approaches are constrained by position effects and potential instability. Gene targeting would bring a number of benefits, however progress requires a...

The implications of grassland and heathland management for the conservation of spider communities: a review (2001)
Journal Article

Both intensity and type of habitat management in grasslands and heathlands affect spider communities. With high intensity management, spider communities often lack diversity and are dominated by a few r-selected species affiliated with bare ground. L...

Prostate cancer risk: associations with ultraviolet radiation, tyrosinase and melanocortin-1 receptor genotypes (2001)
Journal Article

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation may reduce prostate cancer risk, suggesting that polymorphism in genes that mediate host pigmentation will be associated with susceptibility to this cancer. We studied 210 prostate cancer cases and 155 controls to de... Read More about Prostate cancer risk: associations with ultraviolet radiation, tyrosinase and melanocortin-1 receptor genotypes.

Role of crystallographic structure on magnetization reversal of (101̄0) and (112̄0) textured thin film media (2001)
Journal Article

In this study we examine the role of crystallographic structure on the magnetization reversal of two CoCrPtTa thin films grown on different underlayers which provide either a [112̄0] or a [101̄0] preferred orientation. We report synchrotron x-ray mea... Read More about Role of crystallographic structure on magnetization reversal of (101̄0) and (112̄0) textured thin film media.

The effect of the herbicide glyphosate on non-target spiders: Part II. Indirect effects on Lepthyphantes tenuis in field margins (2001)
Journal Article

We have examined the indirect effect of the herbicide glyphosate on the spider Lepthyphantes tenuis in field margins. Glyphosate was applied to a randomised block design field experiment comprising 360, 720 and 1440 g glyphosate AE ha−1 treatments an...

The effect of the herbicide glyphosate on non-target spiders: Part I. Direct effects on Lepthyphantes tenuis under laboratory conditions (2001)
Journal Article

We examined the toxic effects of glyphosate to adult female Lepthyphantes tenuis (Araneae, Linyphiidae), a common spider of agricultural habitats. The overspray technique was used to investigate the effect of the herbicide on forty individuals in eac... Read More about The effect of the herbicide glyphosate on non-target spiders: Part I.
