  • Home birth in Scotland: exploring women's views 

    Edwards, Nadine (CRFR, 2004-01)

  • Host sanctions and the legume– rhizobium mutualism 

    Kiers, E Toby; Rousseau, Robert A; West, Stuart A; Denison, R Ford (Nature Publishing Group, 2003)
    Explaining mutualistic cooperation between species remains one of the greatest problems for evolutionary biology1–4. Why do symbionts provide costly services to a host, indirectly benefiting competitors sharing the same ...
  • How breakfast happens in the café 

    Laurier, Eric (Sage, 2008)
    In this article I present an ethnographic study of `breakfast in the café', to begin to document the orderly properties of an emergent timespace. In so doing, the aim is to provide a description of the local production of ...

  • How to feel things with words 

    Laurier, Eric (Institute of Geography. The School of Geosciences.The University of Edinburgh, 2007)
    A person X says to person Y ‘it’s here”. A common enough thing for someone to say to someone else, and a common enough expression for both to understand, yet professional analysts of language are troubled by what ‘it’s ...
  • How was it for you? The quality of young people's sexual relationships 

    Wright, Daniel; Forrest, Simon (CRFR, 2010-07)
    Few studies have investigated young people’s own evaluations of their heterosexual experiences or relationships, other than by measuring negative sexual encounters. An evaluation of young peoples’ views is important, to ...
  • Human rights: in the real world

  • Hume = Small Hume 

    Ketland, Jeffrey (Blackwells, 2002)
    We can modify Hume’s Principle in the same manner that George Boolos suggested for modifying Frege’s Basic Law V. This leads to the principle Small Hume. Then, we can show that Small Hume is interderivable with Hume’s Principle.
  • I am John's Brain 

    Clark, Andy (1995)
    The brain and its "agent" debate the provenance of thoughts in the charming language of an old Readers Digest article.

  • Immune evasion genes from filarial nematodes 

    Maizels, Rick; Gomez-Escobar, Natalia; Gregory, William F; William, Janice; Zang, Xingxing (Elsevier, 2001)
    Helminth parasites have large genomes (~108 bp) which are likely to encode a spectrum of products able to block or divert the host immune response. We have employed three parallel approaches to identify the first generation ...
  • Immune regulation by helminth parasites: Cellular and molecular mechanisms 

    Maizels, Rick; Yazdanbakhsh, M (NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, LONDON, 2003)
    Immunology was founded by studying the body's response to infectious microorganisms, and yet microbial prokaryotes only tell half the story of the immune system. Eukaryotic pathogens protozoa, helminths, fungi and ectoparasites ...
  • Immunity Promotes Virulence Evolution in a Malaria Model 

    Mackinnon, Margaret J; Read, Andrew F (PLoS Biology, 2004)
    Evolutionary models predict that host immunity will shape the evolution of parasite virulence. While some assumptions of these models have been tested, the actual evolutionary outcome of immune selection on virulence ...
