Detection of microplastics in human saphenous vein tissue using μFTIR: a pilot study (2023)
Journal Article
Rotchell, J. M., Jenner, L. C., Chapman, E., Bennett, R., Bolanle, I. O., Loubani, M., …Palmer, T. (2023). Detection of microplastics in human saphenous vein tissue using μFTIR: a pilot study. PLoS ONE, 18(2), Article e0280594. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0280594

Microplastics (MPs) are ubiquitous in the environment, in the human food chain, and have been recently detected in blood and lung tissues. To undertake a pilot analysis of MP contamination in human vein tissue samples with respect to their presence (...

Putting the fish into inland fisheries – A global allocation of historic inland fish catch (2023)
Journal Article
Ainsworth, R. F., Cowx, I. G., & Funge-Smith, S. J. (2023). Putting the fish into inland fisheries – A global allocation of historic inland fish catch. Fish and Fisheries, https://doi.org/10.1111/faf.12725

Inland waters support the livelihoods of up to 820 million people and provide fisheries that make an essential contribution towards food security, particularly in the developing world where 90% of inland fisheries catch is consumed. Despite their imp... Read More about Putting the fish into inland fisheries – A global allocation of historic inland fish catch.

Human Factors in the Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Farms (2022)
Thesis
Uzuegbunam, T. D. (2022). Human Factors in the Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Farms. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4192750

Current maintenance planning strategies and decision support tools used in the operations and maintenance of offshore wind farms rarely account for the welfare of technicians and their ability to do work upon arrival. This create... Read More about Human Factors in the Operation and Maintenance of Offshore Wind Farms.

Outdoor Microplastic Analysis Using Inlet Filters from an NOx Regulatory Air Quality Monitoring Device (2022)
Journal Article
Jenner, L. C., Kureshi, R. R., White, D., Chapman, E., Sadofsky, L. R., & Rotchell, J. M. (2022). Outdoor Microplastic Analysis Using Inlet Filters from an NOx Regulatory Air Quality Monitoring Device. Atmosphere, 13(12), Article 2017. https://doi.org/10.3390/atmos13122017

Atmospheric microplastics (MPs) are a ubiquitous environmental contaminant of emerging concern. Sampling methods provide information relating to surface area concentration and MP characteristics, without direct comparison with routinely measured stan...

Microplastics in the surgical environment (2022)
Journal Article
Field, D. T., Green, J. L., Bennett, R., Jenner, L. C., Sadofsky, L., Chapman, E., …Rotchell, J. M. (2022). Microplastics in the surgical environment. Environment International, 170, Article 107630. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envint.2022.107630

Atmospheric microplastics (MPs) have been consistently detected within indoor and outdoor air samples. Locations with high human activity are reported to have high MP levels. The aim was to quantify and characterise the MPs present within the surgica... Read More about Microplastics in the surgical environment.

Two closely related ureotelic fish species of the genus Alcolapia express different levels of ammonium transporters in gills (2022)
Journal Article
White, L. J., Rose, M., Lawson, M., Joyce, D., Smith, A. M., Thomas, G. H., …Pownall, M. E. (2022). Two closely related ureotelic fish species of the genus Alcolapia express different levels of ammonium transporters in gills. Biology Open, 11(11), Article bio059575. https://doi.org/10.1242/bio.059575

Most fish excrete their nitrogenous waste across the gills as ammonia through the activity of the Rhesus glycoprotein ammonium transporters. In contrast, fish of the subgenus Alcolapia (Oreochromis) are the only vertebrates that survive the extreme c...

Sex and gametogenesis stage are strong drivers of gene expression in Mytilus edulis exposed to environmentally relevant plasticiser levels and pH 7.7 (2022)
Journal Article
Mincarelli, L., Chapman, E. C., Rotchell, J. M., Turner, A., & Wollenberg Valero, K. C. (in press). Sex and gametogenesis stage are strong drivers of gene expression in Mytilus edulis exposed to environmentally relevant plasticiser levels and pH 7.7. Environmental science and pollution research, https://doi.org/10.1007/s11356-022-23801-3

Plastic pollution and changes in oceanic pH are both pressing environmental issues. Little emphasis, however, has been placed on the influence of sex and gametogenesis stage when investigating the effects of such stressors. Here, we examined histolog...

A novel method for identifying coded tags recorded on aquatic acoustic monitoring systems (2022)
Journal Article
Lowe, C. D., Tregenza, N. J., Allen, C. J., Blow, G. E., Nuuttila, H., Bertelli, C. M., …Clarke, D. R. (2022). A novel method for identifying coded tags recorded on aquatic acoustic monitoring systems. Environmental monitoring and assessment, 194(11), Article 806. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10661-022-10500-2

Aquatic biotelemetry increasingly relies on using acoustic transmitters ('tags') that enable passive detection of tagged animals using fixed or mobile receivers. Both tracking methods are resource-limited, restricting the spatial area in which moveme... Read More about A novel method for identifying coded tags recorded on aquatic acoustic monitoring systems.

Building a competence-based model for the academic development of programme leaders. (2022)
Journal Article
Lawrence, J., Morrell, L., & Scott, G. (in press). Building a competence-based model for the academic development of programme leaders. International Journal for Academic Development,

The programme leader is crucial to the success of a higher education provider’s educational portfolio. However, programme leader development is under-researched and is too often conceptualised in a negative way, as the solution to a problem. Here we...
