Data from: Predicting habitat suitability and connectivity for management and conservation of urban wildlife: A real-time web application for grassland water voles

Luca Nelli, Bianka Schehl, Robyn A. Stewart, Catherine Scott, Scott Ferguson, Shelagh MacMillan & Dominic J. McCafferty
Natural habitats in urban areas provide benefits for both humans and biodiversity. However, to achieve biodiversity gains we require new techniques to determine habitat suitability and ecological connectivity that will inform urban planning and development. Using an example of an urban population of water voles (Arvicola amphibius) we developed a habitat suitability model and a resistance-surface-based model of landscape connectivity to identify potential connectivity between areas of suitable habitat. We then updated the environmental variables...

Between 2018 and 2021, soil was sampled at 1323 locations as part of the Carbon Storage in Intertidal Environments (C-SIDE) project to facilitate the calculation of saltmarsh soil organic carbon stocks and burial rates. Sites were chosen to represent contrasting habitat types in the UK, in particular sediment types, vegetation and sea level history. The work was...

Triparental ageing in a laboratory population of an insect with maternal care

Hilary Cope, Edward Ivimey-Cook & Jacob Moorad
Parental age at reproduction influences offspring size and survival by affecting pre- and postnatal conditions in a wide variety of species, including humans. However, most investigations into this manifestation of ageing focus upon maternal age effects; the effects of paternal age and interactions between maternal and paternal age are often neglected. Furthermore, even when maternal age effects are studied, pre- and postnatal effects are often confounded. Using a cross-fostered experimental design, we investigated the joint...

The clinical value of C-reactive protein and its association with tumour location in patients undergoing curative surgery for colorectal cancer – a ScotScan collaborative study

Anniken J. Fuglestad, Sebastian Meltzer, Anne Hansen Ree, Donald C. McMillan, James H. Park & Christian Kersten
The presence of preoperative systemic inflammatory response (SIR) is an established negative prognostic factor for patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC). C-reactive protein (CRP) is known to be implicated in detrimental immune responses. The biological differences between right-sided and left-sided CRC are gaining increasing attention. Our aim was to analyse the prognostic value of CRP and explore the association between tumour location and SIR. A total of 2059 patients treated for stage I–III CRC, identified...

Enhancing discovery and enriching the scholarly graph with the Research Outputs Metadata Schema (Rioxx)

George Macgregor, Nicola Dowson, Mick Eadie, Beverley Jones, Petr Knoth, Petr Knoth & Paul Walk
This contribution considers recent updates to Rioxx, the Research Outputs Metadata Schema [1]. Originally an OAI-PMH metadata application profile for open repositories in the UK, Rioxx version 2.0 has been broadly supported by institutional repositories in the UK since 2016 and has also enabled a level of OpenAIRE participation from institutions for whom compliance was always problematic [2]. More recently Rioxx has entered candidate release status for version 3.0 in which a more holistic and...

Right ventricular free wall longitudinal strain is independently associated with mortality in mechanically ventilated patients with COVID-19

James McErlane, Philip McCall, Jennifer Willder, Colin Berry & Ben Shelley
Abstract Background Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction has been commonly reported in patients with Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), and is associated with mortality in mixed cohorts of patients requiring and not requiring invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). Using RV-speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) strain analysis, we aimed to identify the prevalence of RV dysfunction (diagnosed by abnormal RV-STE) in patients with COVID-19 that are exclusively undergoing IMV, and assess association between RV dysfunction and 30 day mortality. We...

Half a century of the inverse care law: A comparison of general practitioner job satisfaction and patient satisfaction in deprived and affluent areas of Scotland

Stewart W Mercer, Carey J Lunan, Clare MacRae, David AG Henderson, Bridie Fitzpatrick, John Gillies, Bruce Guthrie & Johanna Reilly
Background and AimsThe ‘inverse care law’, first described in 1971, results from a mismatch of healthcare need and healthcare supply in deprived areas. GPs in such areas struggle to cope with the high levels of demand resulting in shorter consultations and poorer patient outcomes. We compare recent national GP and patient satisfaction data to investigate the ongoing existence of this disparity in Scotland.Methods and ResultsSecondary analysis of cross-sectional national surveys (2017/2018) on upper and lower...

Visual Speech Improves Older and Younger Adults’ Response Time and Accuracy for Speech Comprehension in Noise

Julie Beadle, Jeesun Kim & Chris Davis
Past research suggests that older adults expend more cognitive resources when processing visual speech than younger adults. If so, given resource limitations, older adults may not get as large a visual speech benefit as younger ones on a resource-demanding speech processing task. We tested this using a speech comprehension task that required attention across two talkers and a simple response (i.e., the question-and-answer task) and measured response time and accuracy. Specifically, we compared the size...
