Leaf breakdown rates as a functional indicator were influenced by an invasive non-native invertebrate in urban ponds

Ian Thornhill, Nikolai Friberg, Lesley Batty, Victoria Thamia, Mark E. Ledger
2021 Ecological Indicators  
Site mean total leaf breakdown was 0.0020 k d − 1 (range 0.0003 -0.0053), whilst breakdown rates owing to microbial and fungal activity were lower and averaged 0.0010 k d − 1 (range 6.72 − 5 − 0.0036).  ...  A model-averaging procedure suggested that total litter breakdown rates could be attributed to activity of shredders with A. aquaticus and C. pseudogracilis contributing most, explaining 65% of the variance  ...  due to a cocktail of local and landscape-scale factors (Oertli and Parris, 2019; Walsh et al., 2005) .  ...

Ettore Settanni, Nils E. Thenent, Linda B. Newnes, Glenn Parry, Yee Mey Goh
2015 Journal of Cost Analysis and Parametrics  
For example, Datta & Roy, (2010) suggest a framework which is centered on the cost breakdown structure of a stand-alone service, not on a PSS; Similarly Huang, Newnes, and Parry (2012) evaluate cost  ...  The alternative was to advertise the survey in a representative internet-user community, namely the members of cost estimating/cost engineering LinkedIn groups, to direct potential respondents to the Web-based  ...  So if the Product Service System is e.g., the provision of the availability of an aircraft, most of its through-life cost is locked-in when the aircraft is designed.  ...

Understanding lay perspectives on socioeconomic health inequalities in Britain: a meta-ethnography

Katherine E. Smith, Rosemary Anderson
2017 Sociology of Health and Illness  
Despite this, people living in disadvantaged circumstances are often reluctant to explicitly acknowledge health inequalities, a finding that we suggest can be understood as an attempt to resist the stigma  ...  This suggests that work to increase public awareness of health inequalities may unintentionally exacerbate experiences of stigma and shame, meaning alternative approaches to engaging communities in health  ...  Acknowledgements The initial scoping review work that informed this meta-ethnography (referred to in the paper) was supported by The Samaritans and has been published as a chapter in their 2017 Dying From  ...

Everyday conversation in dementia: a review of the literature to inform research and practice

Jacqueline Kindell, John Keady, Karen Sage, Ray Wilkinson
2016 International journal of language and communication disorders  
There has been increasing interest in dementia care in recent years, including how practitioners, service providers and society in general can help individuals to live well with the condition.  ...  An important aspect to this is provision of advice to ensure conversation partners effectively support the person with dementia in conversation.  ...  A range of publications explore such interactions and further work to review this particular area would benefit the field.  ...
