  • Hamston, Tracey J.; De Vere, Natasha; King, Andrew; Pellicer, Jaume; Fay, Michael F.; Cresswell, James E.; Stevens, Jamie R. (2018-12-13)
    Hybridisation and polyploidy are major forces in the evolution of plant diversity and the study of these processes are of particular interest to understand how novel taxa are formed and maintain genetic integrity. Sorbus ...
  • Robson, Paul; Donnison, Iain; Clifton-Brown, John (2019-09-01)
    High yielding perennial grasses are utilised as biomass for the bioeconomy and to displace fossil fuels. Many such grasses, including Miscanthus, are largely undomesticated. The main Miscanthus crop is a naturally occurring ...
  • Doonan, James; Denman, Sandra; Pachebat, Justin Alexander; McDonald, James (2019-01-08)
    The United Kingdom’s native oak are under serious threat from Acute Oak Decline (AOD). Stem tissue necrosis is a primary symptom of AOD and several novel bacteria are associated with necrotic lesions. Two members of the ...

    Human cryptosporidiosis is a leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and a preponderance of infections is caused by anthroponotic Cryptosporidium hominis and zoonotic Cryptosporidium parvum. In this ...
  • Williams, Cate (2018-06-11)
    Protozoa, along with fungi, represent the rumen eukaryotome and account for up to 50% of microbial biomass. Nonetheless, they are often overlooked. It is established that the rumen protozoa play a significant role in ...
  • Williams, Cate (2016)
    The burden of chronic, fat-related diseases upon the NHS is reaching a critical level and can be linked to an increased intake of saturated fats (SFA). SFAs are found in many products, including red meat and milk despite ...
