Saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin bioavailability increases in future oceans (2019)
Journal Article
Roggatz, C. C., Fletcher, N., Benoit, D. M., Algar, A. C., Doroff, A., Wright, B., …Hardege, J. D. (2019). Saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin bioavailability increases in future oceans. Nature Climate Change, 9(11), 840-844. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41558-019-0589-3

© 2019, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature Limited. Increasing atmospheric CO2 levels are largely absorbed by the ocean, decreasing surface water pH1. In combination with increasing ocean temperatures, these changes have been i... Read More about Saxitoxin and tetrodotoxin bioavailability increases in future oceans.

Opening the woods: towards a quantification of Neolithic clearance around the Somerset Levels and Moors (2019)
Journal Article
Farrell, M., Bunting, M. J., Sturt, F., Grant, M., Aalbersberg, G., Batchelor, R., …Whittle, A. (in press). Opening the woods: towards a quantification of Neolithic clearance around the Somerset Levels and Moors. Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10816-019-09427-9

Environmental reconstructions from pollen records collected within archaeological landscapes have traditionally taken a broadly narrative approach, with few attempts made at hypothesis testing or formal assessment of uncertainty. This disjuncture be... Read More about Opening the woods: towards a quantification of Neolithic clearance around the Somerset Levels and Moors.

The proposed LOSC implementation agreement on areas beyond national jurisdiction and its impact on international fisheries law (2019)
Book Chapter
Barnes, R. (2019). The proposed LOSC implementation agreement on areas beyond national jurisdiction and its impact on international fisheries law. In D. Freestone (Ed.), Conserving biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction, 104-139. Brill Academic Publishers. https://doi.org/10.1163/9789004391703_006

As the development of an implementation agreement on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction gathers pace, it is important to consider how this might impact upon...

Maps from mud - using the Multiple Scenario Approach to reconstruct land cover dynamics from pollen records: a case study of two Neolithic landscapes (2018)
Journal Article
Bunting, M. J., Farrell, M., Bayliss, A., Marshall, P., & Whittle, A. (2018). Maps from mud - using the Multiple Scenario Approach to reconstruct land cover dynamics from pollen records: a case study of two Neolithic landscapes. Frontiers in ecology and evolution, 6(APR), https://doi.org/10.3389/fevo.2018.00036

Pollen records contain a wide range of information about past land cover, but translation from the pollen diagram to other formats remains a challenge. In this paper, we present LandPolFlow, a software package enabling Multiple Scenario Approach (MSA...

The influence of solvent representation on nuclear shielding calculations of protonation states of small biological molecules (2018)
Journal Article
Roggatz, C. C., Lorch, M., & Benoit, D. M. (2018). The influence of solvent representation on nuclear shielding calculations of protonation states of small biological molecules. Journal of chemical theory and computation : JCTC, 14(5), 2684-2695. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jctc.7b01020

In this study, we assess the influence of solvation on the accuracy and reliability of isotropic nuclear magnetic shielding calculations for amino acids in comparison to experimental data. We focus particularly on the performance of solvation methods...

Energy sovereignty in marine spaces (2015)
Book Chapter
Barnes, R. (2015). Energy sovereignty in marine spaces. In N. Bankes, & S. Trevisanut (Eds.), Energy from the sea : an international law perspective on ocean energy, 13-39. Brill Academic Publishers. https://doi.org/10.1163/9789004303522_003

The term “energy sovereignty” is used with differing emphases to describe a State’s rights or assertions over energy resources and supplies. Given the importance of offshore energy developments, particularly in the field of renewables, this article e... Read More about Energy sovereignty in marine spaces.
