Tensile behaviour of individual fibre bundles in the human lumbar anulus fibrosus
Disc degeneration is a common medical affliction whose origins are not fully understood. An improved understanding of its underlying mechanisms could lead to the development of more effective treatments. The aim of this ...
Silver-assisted development and imaging of fingermarks on non-porous and porous surfaces
In order to deal with the range of surfaces encountered in crime scenes and items associated with crimes, forensic fingermark examiners must have access to a range of latent mark enhancement techniques, each compatible ...
Terrestrial freshwater lenses: Unexplored subterranean oases
Freshwater lenses are lenticular bodies of fresh (TDS<1000 mg/L) groundwater that develop above more saline groundwater within the same host aquifer due in part to buoyancy. In contrast to the widely studied situation of ...
Estimation of vehicle queuing lengths at metering roundabouts
Signalized metering roundabouts are equipped with advanced loop detectors and traffic signals that can reduce vehicle queuing lengths, especially on the dominant approach, when unbalanced traffic flow conditions occur. At ...
Coastal aquifers: Scientific advances in the face of global environmental challenges
The equivalence of multi-axis spine systems: Recommended stiffness limits using a standardized testing protocol
The complexity of multi-axis spine testing often makes it challenging to compare results from different studies. The aim of this work was to develop and implement a standardized testing protocol across three six-axis spine ...
Large-scale vegetation responses to terrestrial moisture storage changes
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union., 2017-09-08)
The normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) is a useful tool for studying vegetation activity and ecosystem performance at a large spatial scale. In this study we use the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) ...
Lizards, ticks and contributions to Australian parasitology: C. Michael Bull (1947-2016)
Professor C. Michael Bull was a great scientist and mentor, and an Associate Editor of this journal. While his research career spanned the fields of behavioural ecology, conservation biology and herpetology, in this article, ...
Cryptic lineage differentiation among Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in the northwest Indian Ocean
Phylogeography can provide insight into the potential for speciation and identify geographic regions and evolutionary processes associated with species richness and evolutionary endemism. In the marine environment, highly ...
