Not all songbirds calibrate their magnetic compass from twilight cues: a telemetry study (2011)
Journal Article
Chernetsov, N., Kishkinev, D., Kosarev, V., & Bolshakov, C. V. (2011). Not all songbirds calibrate their magnetic compass from twilight cues: a telemetry study. Journal of Experimental Biology, 214(15), 2540-2543. https://doi.org/10.1242/jeb.057729

Migratory birds are able to use the sun and associated polarised light patterns, stellar cues and the geomagnetic field for orientation. No general agreement has been reached regarding the hierarchy of orientation cues. Recent data from naturally mig...

Affective displacements: Understanding emotions and sexualities in refugee law (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). Affective displacements: Understanding emotions and sexualities in refugee law. https://doi.org/10.1177/1037969X1103600308

Validating asylum claims on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation relies on discerning what constitutes sexuality and a ‘well founded fear’ of persecution. This administrative process works by suturing narratives of ‘functioning’ sexuality to sp... Read More about Affective displacements: Understanding emotions and sexualities in refugee law.

Evidence for consistency of the glycation gap in diabetes (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). Evidence for consistency of the glycation gap in diabetes. Diabetes Care, 1712 -1716. https://doi.org/10.2337/dc10-1767

OBJECTIVE: Discordance between HbA(1c) and fructosamine estimations in the assessment of glycemia is often encountered. A number of mechanisms might explain such discordance, but whether it is consistent is uncertain. This study aims to coanalyze pai...

Critical mutation rate has an exponential dependence on population size (2011)
Book Chapter
Channon. (2011). Critical mutation rate has an exponential dependence on population size. In ECAL 2011 (117 -124)

Populations of individuals exist in a wide range of sizes, from billions of microorganisms to fewer than ten individuals in some critically endangered species. In any evolutionary system, there is significant evolutionary pressure to evolve sequences... Read More about Critical mutation rate has an exponential dependence on population size.

Discovering and maintaining behaviours inaccessible to incremental genetic evolution through transcription errors and cultural transmission (2011)

In this work the question of whether the introduction of both transcription errors and cultural transmission, in the form of learning by imitation, can enable the evolution of behaviours inaccessible to incremental genetic evolution alone is assessed...

When Sara Jones spoke in front of her separatist congregation in 1632, she was opening herself up to criticism for going against scriptural precedents: it was not divinely sanctioned that women should speak in church. Perhaps deriving confidence from... Read More about "As Shee Preachers Hold Forth Christ": Sara Jones's Challenge to Episcopacy, The Relation of a Gentlewoman (1642).

Laser writing of the electronic activity of N- and H-atoms in GaAs (2011)
Journal Article
Martelli, F., Rubini, S., Balakrishnan, N., Patanè, A., Makarovsky, O., Polimeni, A., & Capizzi, M. (2011). Laser writing of the electronic activity of N- and H-atoms in GaAs. Applied Physics Letters, 021105 - 021105. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.3610464

We use a focussed laser beam to control the electronic activity of N- and H-atoms in a dilute nitride Ga(AsN)/GaAs quantum well. Our approach yields submicron resolution in the spatial manipulation of the electronic properties and can provide an alte...

Action learning and organisation development: overlapping fields of practice (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). Action learning and organisation development: overlapping fields of practice. Action Learning: Research and Practice, 93-102. https://doi.org/10.1080/14767333.2011.581017

This paper explores the relationship between action learning and Organisation Development (OD). It proposes that they are overlapping fields of practice, with interesting similarities and differences. Both fields of practice are experienced as challe...

A genomewide screen for tolerance to cationic drugs reveals genes important for potassium homeostasis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (2011)
Journal Article
(2011). A genomewide screen for tolerance to cationic drugs reveals genes important for potassium homeostasis in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Eukaryotic Cell, 1241 -1250. https://doi.org/10.1128/ec.05029-11

Potassium homeostasis is crucial for living cells. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the uptake of potassium is driven by the electrochemical gradient generated by the Pma1 H(+)-ATPase, and this process represents a major consumer of the gradien...
