Now available on Fast Track: Consequences of multi-scale habitat selection on reproductive success of riverine sandbar-nesting birds in Cambodia

Posted on 26. April, 2018.

Habitat selection occurs at multiple spatial scales and affects demographic processes including reproductive success. Few studies, however, have linked multi-scale habitat selection to reproductive success. We investigated breeding habitat selection at three spatial scales (nest site, nest area and territory), and the consequences of habitat selection on reproductive success of four riverine sandbar-nesting bird species in Cambodia.

Free Review article - Synthesis of amido carbonyl compounds through the Dakin–West reaction using Lewis acid catalysts

Posted on 16. January, 2015.

Multi-component reactions (MCRs) are rapid, efficient and time saving, thus permitting the synthesis of complicated molecules without the isolation of any intermediate. They require minimum effort, which minimises the environmental load and is acceptable from a green chemistry point of view.

Towards understanding the role of Lewis acid on the regioselectivity and mechanism for the acetylation reaction of 2‑benzoxazolinone with acetyl chloride: a DFT study

Posted on 15. January, 2015.

This paper in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism is a theoretical study of the role of the Lewis acid on the regioselectivity in the acylation reaction of 2‑benzoxazolinone with acetyl chloride and has been carried out through DFT calculations at the B3LYP/6-31G** level of theory.

Unpaired electrons as probes of catalytic systems

Posted on 14. January, 2015.

In the December issue of Science Progress, an overview is provided of the importance of molecular species containing unpaired electrons in catalytic systems, as revealed using ESR spectroscopy. The review aims to demonstrate the considerable extent of scientific progress that has been made in this broad topic during the past few decades.

Boldness of urban Australian magpies and local traffic volume

Posted on 14. January, 2015.

In order to successfully colonise the urban environment, birds must be able tolerate pedestrian and vehicle proximity, because exhibiting a strong fleeing response each time that a harmless traffic stimulus is encountered would be maladaptive.
