Dynamics of a temperate grassland reptile community in the mid-north of South Australia
(Royal Society of South Australia, 2014-11)
Temperate native grasslands are listed as a critically endangered ecological community in South Australia, yet very little is known about the associated faunal communities. This study aims to provide information on the ...
Life history influences how fire affects genetic diversity in two lizard species
‘Fire mosaics’ are often maintained in landscapes to promote successional diversity in vegetation with little understanding of how this will affect ecological processes in animal populations such as dispersal, social ...
Foundations for the future: A long-term plan for Australian ecosystem science
Our natural and managed ecosystems form the world we live, play and work in; the settings for our industry; and the distinctive natural heritage that characterises the Australian nation. They are the basis of our current ...
Short-Term Dispersal Response of an Endangered Australian Lizard Varies with Time of Year
(Public Library of Science, 2014-08-22)
Dispersal is an important component in the demography of animal populations. Many animals show seasonal changes in their tendency to disperse, reflecting changes in resource availability, mating opportunities, or in ...
Southern extensions for Holocene records of Australian pelican (Pelecanus conspicillatus) and New Zealand musk duck (Biziura delautouri) in New Zealand
(Ornithological Society of New Zealand, 2014)
Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry using ordered silicon nanopillar arrays
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-09-22)
Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (SALDI-MS) is ideally suited for the highthroughput analysis of small molecules in bodily fluids (e.g. saliva, urine, and blood plasma). A key application ...
Effects of black tea on body composition and metabolic outcomes related to cardiovascular disease risk: a randomized controlled trial
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-04-12)
There is increasing evidence that tea and its non-caffeine components (primarily flavonoids) contribute to cardiovascular health. Randomized controlled trials have shown that tea can improve cardiovascular disease risk ...
A gesture-based virtual art program for children with severe motor impairments - development and pilot study
(Co-Action Publishing, 2014-01-28)
Art plays a vital role in developing a child’s communication, problem solving, social and emotional skills as well as motor control, creativity and self-expression. For children with severe impairments that limit their ...
Evaluating the effects of nacre on human skin and scar cells in culture
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-05-02)
Pearl nacre, a biomineralisation product of molluscs, has growing applications in cosmetics, as well as dental and bone restoration, yet a systematic evaluation of its biosafety is lacking. Here, we assessed the ...
XPS and NEXAFS study of fluorine modified TiO2 nano-ovoids reveals dependence of Ti3+ surface population on the modifying agent
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-04-15)
Crystalline titanium dioxide was synthesised under mild conditions by the thermal degradation of peroxotitanic acid in the presence of a number of fluoride-containing surface modifying agents (NH4F, NH4BF4, NH4PF6, NBu4F, ...
