  • Griffith, Gareth Wyn; Ozkose, Emin; Theodorou, Michael Kyriacos; Davies, David R. (2009-05-01)
    We employed most probable numbers (MPNs) enumeration of enrichment cultures, combined with the use of a range of carbon sources (glucose, cellobiose, cellulose, xylan and wheat straw), to recover and identify morphologically ...

E.; Salazar, Gerardo A.; Savolainen, Vincent; Seberg, Ole; Wilkinson, M. J.; Yi, Dong-Keun; Little, Damon P. (2009)
    DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. To provide a community ...
  • Vanhaecke, Delphine; Leaniz, Carlos Garcia De; Gajardo, Gonzalo; Young, Kyle; Sanzana, Jose; Orellana, Gabriel; Fowler, Daniel; Howes, Paul; Monzon-Arguello, Catalina; Olmo, Sofia Consuegra Del (2012-03-06)
    The conservation of data deficient species is often hampered by inaccurate species delimitation. The galaxiid fishes Aplochiton zebra and Aplochiton taeniatus are endemic to Patagonia (and for A. zebra, the Falkland Islands), ...
  • de Vere, Natasha; Rich, Tim C. G.; Trinder, Sarah A.; Long, Charlotte (2014-10-03)
    DNA barcoding uses specific regions of DNA in order to identify species. Initiatives are taking place around the world to generate DNA barcodes for all groups of living organisms and to make these data publically available ...
  • Nzeduru, Chinyere V.; Ronca, Sandra; Wilkinson, Mike J. (2012-05-02)
    Transgenes encoding for insecticidal crystal (Cry) proteins from the soil-dwelling bacterium Bacillus Thuringiensis have been widely introduced into Genetically Modified (GM) crops to confer protection against insect pests. ...
  • de Vere, Natasha; Rich, Tim C G; Ford, Col R; Trinder, Sarah A; Long, Charlotte; Moore, Chris W; Satterthwaite, Danielle; Davies, Helena; Allainguillaume, Joel; Ronca, Sandra; Tatarinova, Tatiana; Garbett, Hannah; Walker, Kevin; Wilkinson, Mike J (2012)
    We present the first national DNA barcode resource that covers the native flowering plants and conifers for the nation of Wales (1143 species). Using the plant DNA barcode markers rbcL and matK, we have assembled 97.7% ...
  • Blake, Max; McKeown, Niall; Bushell, Mark; Shaw, Paul (2016-09-01)
    Many spider species produce webs that represent a potential non-invasive source of DNA for conservation genetic analysis. Reported here is the successful isolation of target DNA from members of two families (Theraphosidae ...
  • Provan, J.; Corbett, G.; Waugh, R.; McNicol, J. W.; Morgante, M.; Powell, W. (1996-10-22)
    The aim of this research was to develop a convenient polymerase chain reaction-based assay that would allow intraspecific chloroplast variability to be detected. Our approach is based on the detection of length polymorphism ...
  • Hinchliffe, J. Richard; Lingham-Soliar, T.; Feduccia, A. (2005-10-10)
    The origin of birds and avian flight from within the archosaurian radiation has been among the most contentious issues in paleobiology. Although there is general agreement that birds are related to theropod dinosaurs at ...
  • James, W. P.; Warren, J. M. (2008-07-01)
    To answer the question whether flowers wave to attract pollinators, we determine: (1) the heritability of floral mobility; (2) whether wavy flowers attract more insects; (3) does the duration of pollination affect seed ...
  • Thomas, Howard (Springer Nature, 2003)
    Time-dependent ageing-like processes in green plants are discussed and compared to gerontological changes in animals and other organisms. The question of plant ageing is inseparable from the issue of the developmental ...
  • Bjelvenmark, J.; Amundsen, T.; Pelabon, C.; Borg, A. A.; Forsgren, E.; Barber, Iain (2005)
    Courtship and body condition of male two-spotted gobies (Gobiusculus flavescens) harbouring naturally acquired microsporidian infections were compared with those of microsporidian-free males under standardized conditions ...
  • Harrison, Kathryn A.; Bol, Roland; Bardgett, Richard D. (2008-01)
    We used dual labelled stable isotope (13C and 15N) techniques to examine how grassland plant species with different growth strategies vary in their ability to compete with soil microbes for different chemical forms of ...
  • Saetnan, Eli Rudinow; Skarpe, Christina; Batzli, George O. (2012-10)
    We tested the hypothesis that domestic sheep (Ovis aries) in alpine meadows of central Norway negatively affect populations of field voles (Microtus agrestis) because grazing reduces cover and increases the concentration ...

  • Griffith, Gareth (2012-01-01)
    Many Kingdoms make up the three Domains of life but only two of these, the Viridiplantae and Metazoa, appear to merit the attention of conservation biologists. Given that the neglected Kingdoms, which can broadly be described ...
  • Creevey, Christopher J; Fitzpatrick, David A; Philip, Gayle K; Kinsella, Rhoda J; O'Connell, Mary J; Pentony, Melissa M; Travers, Simon A; Wilkinson, Mark; McInerney, James O (2004-12-22)
    The extent to which prokaryotic evolution has been influenced by horizontal gene transfer (HGT) and therefore might be more of a network than a tree is unclear. Here we use supertree methods to ask whether a definitive ...
