    • Combining personal with social information facilitates host defences and explains why cuckoos should be secretive 

      Thorogood, Rose; Davies, Nicholas B. (Nature Publishing Group, 22-01-2016)
      Individuals often vary defences in response to local predation or parasitism risk. But how should they assess threat levels when it pays their enemies to hide? For common cuckoo hosts, assessing parasitism risk is challenging: ...
    • Combining spatial data with survey data improves predictions of boundaries between settlements 

      Wilebore, Beccy; Coomes, David (Elsevier, 2016-10-10)
      Studies of land-use change often require the combination of socioeconomic survey data with spatially continuous maps of land-cover change. One approach is to define maps of land ownership, assuming that all land-use change ...
    • Combustion Noise 

      Dowling, Ann P.; Mahmoudi, Yasser (Elsevier, 2014)
      Combustion noise is becoming increasingly important as a major noise source in aeroengines and ground based gas turbines. This is partially because advances in design have reduced the other noise sources, and partially ...
    • The combustion of solid paraffin wax and of liquid glycerol in a fluidised bed 

      Menon, A; waller, N; Hu, W; Hayhurst, A; davidson, J; Scott, SA (Elsevier, 2017-07-01)
      Two fuels were burned in electrically heated beds of alumina sand, fluidised by air. The fuels were: (i) paraffin wax, which is a solid containing 100% volatile matter and (ii) glycerol, a liquid, whose potential as a fuel ...
    • Coming of age: the artificial pancreas for type 1 diabetes 

      Thabit, Hood; Hovorka, Roman (Springer, 2016-06-30)
      The artificial pancreas (closed-loop system) addresses the unmet clinical need for improved glucose control whilst reducing the burden of diabetes self-care in type 1 diabetes. Glucose-responsive insulin delivery above and ...
    • Comment on the Relationship between Scientific Education and Artistic Education 

      Ma, Tie-Li (Association of Cambridge Studies, 2007)
    • Comment on “A Theory of Three-Dimensional Parachute Dynamic Stability” 

      Graham, W. R.; Moss, B. R. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2016-02-22)
    • Comment on “Low time resolution analysis of polar ice cores cannot detect impulsive nitrate events” by D.F. Smart et al. 

      Wolff, E. W.; Bigler, M.; Curran, M. A. J.; Dibb, J. E.; Frey, M. M.; Legrand, M.; McConnell, J. R. (Wiley, 2016-01-29)
      Smart et al. (2014) suggested that the detection of nitrate spikes in polar ice cores from solar energetic particle (SEP) events could be achieved if an analytical system with sufficiently high resolution was used. Here ...
    • Commentary on Dixon et al (2014): Understanding the abuse liability of modern EGMs 

      Clark, Luke; Sharman, Steve (Wiley-Blackwell, 2014)
    • Commodity Price Volatility and the Sources of Growth 

      de V. Cavalcanti, Tiago V.; Mohaddes, Kamiar; Raissi, Mehdi (Wiley, 2014-09-09)
      This paper studies the impact of the growth and volatility of commodity terms of trade (CToT) on economic growth, total factor productivity, physical capital accumulation and human capital acquisition. We use the standard ...
    • Common and Distinct Patterns of Grey Matter Volume Alteration in Major Depression and Bipolar Disorder: Evidence from Voxel-Based Meta-Analysis 

      Wise, T.; Radua, J.; Via, E.; Cardoner, N.; Abe, O.; Adams, T. M.; Amico, F. et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Finding robust brain substrates of mood disorders is an important target for research. The degree to which major depression and bipolar disorder are associated with common and/or distinct patterns of volumetric changes is ...
    • Common binding by redundant group B Sox proteins is evolutionarily conserved in Drosophila 

      Carl, Sarah H; Russell, Steven (2015-04-13)
      Abstract Background Group B Sox proteins are a highly conserved group of transcription factors that act extensively to coordinate nervous system development in higher metazoans ...
    • Common binding by redundant group B Sox proteins is evolutionarily conserved in Drosophila. 

      Carl, Sarah H.; Russell, Steven (BioMed Central, 2015-04-13)
      Background: Group B Sox proteins are a highly conserved group of transcription factors that act extensively to coordinate nervous system development in higher metazoans while showing both co-expression and functional redundancy ...
    • Common breast cancer susceptibility alleles are associated with tumor subtypes in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers: results from the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2. 

      Mulligan, Anna Marie; Couch, Fergus J.; Barrowdale, Daniel; Domchek, Susan M.; Eccles, Diana; Nevanlinna, Heli; Ramus, Susan J. et al. (2011-11-02)
      Abstract Introduction Previous studies have demonstrated that common breast cancer susceptibility alleles are differentially associated with breast cancer risk for BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutation carriers. It is currently ...
    • ‘The Common Camp’: temporary settlements as a spatio-political instrument in Israel-Palestine 

      Katz Feigis, I
      From their emergence in the 19th century to their current global proliferation, camps have been created extensively by and for different populations under the modern state order. Whether employed by national and colonial ...
