  • Mesozoic-Tertiary tectonic evolution of the easternmost Mediterranean area: integration of marine and land evidence. 

    Robertson, Alastair H F (Ocean Drilling Program, 1998)
    This paper presents a synthesis of Holocene to Late Paleozoic marine and land evidence from the easternmost Mediterranean area, in the light of recent ODP Leg 160 drilling results from the Eratosthenes Seamount. The ...
  • The metal content of airborne particles in Edinburgh: application to epidemiological research 

    Hibbs, L R; Beverland, Iain J; Heal, Mathew R; Agius, Raymond M; Elton, Robert A; Fowler, D; Cape, Neil (Oxford University Press, 2002)
    Metals are putative causative agents in the association between ill health and exposure to airborne particles. We present preliminary results from an epidemiological study using exposure metrics of metal contained in ...
  • Metformin and weight loss in obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome: comparison of doses 

    Harborne, L. R.; Sattar, N.; Norman, J. E.; Fleming, R. (The Endocrine Society, 2005-08)
    CONTEXT: Metformin treatment of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is widespread, as determined by studies with diverse patient populations. No comparative examination of weight changes or metabolite responses to ...
  • Metformin or antiandrogen in the treatment of hirsutism in polycystic ovary syndrome 

    Harborne, L.; Fleming, R.; Lyall, H.; Sattar, N.; Norman, J. (The Endocrine Society, 2003-09)
    Hirsutism is a common and distressing symptom frequently encountered in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who also show relative insulin resistance. The aim of this trial, in which hirsutism was the primary end ...
  • Methyl bromide and methyl chloride fluxes from temperate forest litter 

    Blei, Emanuel; Heal, Mathew R (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    Methyl halide fluxes were measured from fine (nonwoody) litter samples in a temperate deciduous forest site in Scotland on 16 occasions over more than a year and from a coniferous forest site. The resulting mean (+/-1 ...
  • Methyl bromide emissions to the atmosphere from temperate woodland ecosystems 

    Drewer, Julia; Heal, Kate V; Smith, Keith A; Heal, Mathew R (Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
    The environmental importance of methyl bromide (CH3Br) arises from its contribution to stratospheric ozone loss processes and, as a consequence, its emissions from anthropogenic sources are subject to the Montreal Protocol. ...
  • The methylated component of the Neurospora crassa genome 

    Selker, Eric U; Tountas, Nikolaos A; Cross, Sally H; Margolin, Brian S; Murphy, Jonathan G; Bird, Adrian P; Freitag, Michael (Nature Publishing Group, 2003-04-24)
    Cytosine methylation is common, but not ubiquitous, in eukaryotes. Mammals (1) and the fungus Neurospora crassa (2,3) have about 2–3% of cytosines methylated. In mammals, methylation is almost exclusively in the ...
  • The MHC and body odors: arbitrary effects caused by shifts of mean pleasantness 

    Wedekind, Claus (Nature Publishing Group, 2002-07)
    The main conclusions of the study by Jacob et al.1 published in February's issue of Nature Genetics differ from those of most previous studies of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and mate or odor preference in ...
  • Microfiltration of colloids and natural organic matter 

    Schäfer, Andrea; Schwicke, U.; Fischer, M. M.; Fane, Anthony G.; Waite, T. D. (Elsevier, 2000)
    Surface waters contain colloids and natural organic matter, largely composed of humic substances. In this work the effect of natural organic matter (NOM) and humic substances (IHSS stream humic and fulvic acid reference ...
  • Microfunctionalism: Connectionism and the Scientific Explanation of Mental States 

    Clark, Andy (MIT Press, 1989)
    My goal in the present treatment is to sketch and compare two scientific approaches to understanding the mind. The first approach, that of classical cognitivism, depicts mind as a manipulator of chunky, quite high-level, ...
  • Micropollutant Sorption to Membrane Polymers: A Review of Mechanisms for Estrogens 

    Schäfer, Andrea; Akanyeti, Ime; Semião, Andrea J.C. (Elsevier, 2011)
    Organic micropollutants such as estrogens occur in water in increasing quantities from predominantly anthropogenic sources. In water such micropollutants partition to surfaces such as membrane polymers but also any other ...
  • Mindful Belief 

    Toribio, Josefa (Department of Philosophy. Stockholm University, 2002)
    It is sometimes said that humans are unlike other animals in at least one crucial respect. We do not simply form beliefs, desires and other mental states, but are capable of caring about our mental states in a distinctive ...
  • Minds, Brains and Tools 

    Clark, Andy (Clarendon Press, Oxford, 2002)
    The selected texts for this discussion were two recent pieces by Dennett (“Things About Things” and “Making Tools for Thinking” – henceforth TAT and MTT respectively) and one oldie-but-goodie (“Styles of Mental Representation”, ...
  • Minimal Rationalism 

    Clark, Andy (Oxford University Press, 1993)
    Enquiries into the possible nature and scope of innate knowledge never proceed in an empirical vaccuum. Instead, such conjectures are informed by a theory (perhaps only tacitly endorsed) concerning probable representational ...
  • Miocene shallow-water carbonates on the Eratosthenes Seamount, easternmost Mediterranean Sea 

    Robertson, Alastair H F (Ocean Drilling Program, 1998)
    Miocene shallow-water limestones of the Eratosthenes Seamount add considerably to the picture of widespread and heterogeneous Mediterranean Miocene reef development. Shallow-water limestones were cored at two sites on the ...
  • Misfeasance in Public Office: An Emerging Medical Law Tort? 

    Laurie, Graeme; Mason, J K (Oxford University Press, 2003)
    The authors draw on two notable cases, Akenzua v. Secretary of State for the Home Department, and Palmer v Tees Health Authority, to which the outcome has prompted the article discussing misfeasance as an emerging medical ...
  • Model-Based Query Systems for Emergency Response

  • Modelling ecological interaction despite object-oriented modularity 

    Derry, Julian F (Elsevier, 1998)
    Ecological modellers may be deterred from using object-oriented programming languages by reports of the inherent rigidity of the object-oriented formulation, giving rise to a poor representation of biotic interaction. ...
