Seagrass removal leads to rapid changes in fauna and loss of carbon. (2019)
Journal Article
Githaiga, M. N., Frouws, A. M., Kairo, J. G., & Huxham, M. (2019). Seagrass removal leads to rapid changes in fauna and loss of carbon. Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution, 7, https://doi.org/10.3389/fevo.2019.00062

Seagrass habitats are important natural carbon sinks, with an average of ∼14 kg C m−2 buried in their sediments. The fate of this carbon following seagrass removal or damage has major environmental implications but is poorly understood. Using a remov...

Impact of atmospheric ozone-enrichment on quality-related attributes of tomato fruit (2007)
Journal Article
Tzortzakis, N., Borland, A., Singleton, I., & Barnes, J. (2007). Impact of atmospheric ozone-enrichment on quality-related attributes of tomato fruit. Postharvest Biology and Technology, 45(3), 317-325. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.postharvbio.2007.03.004

Tomato fruit (Lycopersicon esculentum L. cv. Carousel) were exposed to ozone concentrations ranging between 0.005 (controls) and 1.0 μmol mol−1 at 13 °C and 95% RH. Quality-related attributes and organoleptic characteristics were examined during and... Read More about Impact of atmospheric ozone-enrichment on quality-related attributes of tomato fruit.

Deployment of low-level ozone-enrichment for the preservation of chilled fresh produce (2007)
Journal Article
Tzortzakis, N., Singleton, I., & Barnes, J. (2007). Deployment of low-level ozone-enrichment for the preservation of chilled fresh produce. Postharvest Biology and Technology, 43(2), 261-270. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.postharvbio.2006.09.005

Tomatoes, strawberries, table grapes and plums were inoculated with Botrytis cinerea (grey mould), transferred to chilled storage (13 °C) and exposed to ‘clean air’ or low-level ozone-enrichment (0.1 μmol mol−1). Ozone-enrichment resulted in a substa... Read More about Deployment of low-level ozone-enrichment for the preservation of chilled fresh produce.

The effect of wind exposure on the tree aerial architecture and biomechanics of Sitka Spruce (picea sitchenisis Bong.). (2006)
Journal Article
Gardiner, B. A., & BrĂ¼chert, F. (2006). The effect of wind exposure on the tree aerial architecture and biomechanics of Sitka Spruce (picea sitchenisis Bong.). American Journal of Botany, 93, 1512-1521

This paper reports on the effect of wind loading below damaging strength on tree mechanical and physical properties. In a wind-exposed Sitka spruce stand in western Scotland, 60 trees at four different levels of wind exposure (10 m, 30 m, 50 m, 90 m...

Predicting the branching properties of Sitka Spruce grown in Great Britain. (2006)
Journal Article
Gardiner, B. A., Achim, A., Daquitaine, R., & Leban, J. (2006). Predicting the branching properties of Sitka Spruce grown in Great Britain. The New Zealand journal of forestry, 36, 246-264

Predictions of the branching characteristics of Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis(Bong.) Carr.) were made as part of the development of a timber properties simulation tool. For each annual growth unit, non-linear modelling was used to describe the avera... Read More about Predicting the branching properties of Sitka Spruce grown in Great Britain..

The stability of different silvicultural systems: a wind tunnel investigation. (2005)
Journal Article
Gardiner, B., Belcher, R., Wood, C., Achim, A., & Marshall, B. (2005). The stability of different silvicultural systems: a wind tunnel investigation. Forestry, 78(5), 471-484. https://doi.org/10.1093/forestry/cpi053

We report on a wind-tunnel study with 1 : 75 scale model trees designed to examine the influence of canopy structure on the formation of turbulent gusts above forests. This was to test the hypothesis that more irregular canopy structures produce less... Read More about The stability of different silvicultural systems: a wind tunnel investigation..
