Welcome to Repository@Hull

The Repository@Hull is intended to be an Open Access showcase for the published research output of the university. Whenever possible, refereed documents accepted for publication, or finished artistic compositions presented in public, will be made available here in full digital format, and hyperlinks to standard published versions will be provided.

Quantifying species richness and composition of elusive rainforest mammals in Taman Negara National Park, Peninsular Malaysia (2019)
Journal Article
Jambari, A., Sasidhran, S., Abdul Halim, H. R., Mohamed, K. A., Ashton-Butt, A., Lechner, A. M., & Azhar, B. (2019). Quantifying species richness and composition of elusive rainforest mammals in Taman Negara National Park, Peninsular Malaysia. Global Ecology and Conservation, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gecco.2019.e00607

Rapid urban and agricultural expansions are taking place across Peninsular Malaysia resulting in wide spread forest conversion impacting on important conservation areas. Taman Negara National Park is one of the few protected nature reserves remaining... Read More

Cattle-grazing in oil palm plantations sustainably controls understory vegetation (2019)
Journal Article
Tohiran, K. A., Nobilly, F., Zulkifli, R., Ashton-Butt, A., & Azhar, B. (2019). Cattle-grazing in oil palm plantations sustainably controls understory vegetation. Agriculture, ecosystems & environment, 278, 54-60. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.agee.2019.03.021

Oil palm agricultural practices need to be substantially changed in order to meet the global demand for more ethical and sustainable farming. Livestock integration is an innovative method to control understory vegetation in oil palm plantations, whil... Read More

The origin of the light distribution in spiral galaxies (2009)
Journal Article
Sanchez-Blazquez, P., Courty, S., Gibson, B. K., & Brook, C. B. (2009). The origin of the light distribution in spiral galaxies. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 398(2), 591-606. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2966.2009.15133.x

We analyse a high-resolution, fully cosmological, hydrodynamical disc galaxy simulation, to study the source of the double-exponential light profiles seen in many stellar discs, and the effects of stellar radial migration upon the spatiotemporal evol... Read More

Properties of simulated Milky Way-mass galaxies in loose group and field environments (2012)
Journal Article
Few, C. G., Gibson, B. K., Courty, S., Michel-Dansac, L., Brook, C. B., & Stinson, G. S. (2012). Properties of simulated Milky Way-mass galaxies in loose group and field environments. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 547, https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201219649

Aims. We test the validity of comparing simulated field disk galaxies with the empirical properties of systems situated within environments more comparable to loose groups, including the Milky Way’s Local Group. Methods. Cosmological simulations o... Read More

Close-up view of an ongoing merger between the NGC 4839 group and the Coma cluster – a post-merger scenario (2019)
Journal Article
Lyskova, N., Churazov, E., Zhang, C., Forman, W., Jones, C., Dolag, K., …Sheardown, A. (2019). Close-up view of an ongoing merger between the NGC 4839 group and the Coma cluster – a post-merger scenario. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 485(2), 2922-2934. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stz597

We study a merger of the NGC 4839 group with the Coma cluster using X-ray observations from the XMM–Newton and Chandra telescopes. X-ray data show two prominent features: (i) a long (∼600 kpc in projection) and bent tail of cool gas trailing (towards... Read More
