Integrated screening validates primary axes of specialisation in plants
TLDR
The evidence assembled here and elsewhere in the current literature points to the existence of primary functional types, including those recognized by Ramenskii and Grime, which provide strong evidence of functional integration between evolutionary specializations in root and shoot and support Donald's unified theory of competitive ability.
The Importance of Marking Criteria in the Use of Peer Assessment
Abstract This paper reports a study which implemented and evaluated a method of peer assessment, as a formative and summative assessment procedure. Pairs of first‐year undergraduate biology students
Biology students’ utilization of tutors’ formative feedback: a qualitative interview study
Ramaprasad (1983) defined feedback as information about the gap between actual performance level and the reference level, which is subsequently used to alter that gap. Feedback, therefore, needs to
The Use of Student Derived Marking Criteria in Peer and Self-assessment
This paper reports a study which implemented and evaluated a method of student self and peer assessment involving student constructed marking criteria. The theme of the importance of marking criteria
Particulate matter pollution capture by leaves of seventeen living wall species with special reference to rail-traffic at a metropolitan station
Abstract Atmospheric Particulate Matter (PM) constitutes a considerable fraction of urban air pollution, and urban greening is a potential method of mitigating this pollution. The value of living
Evaluating the impact of individual leaf traits on atmospheric particulate matter accumulation using natural and synthetic leaves
Abstract The ability of vegetation to capture and retain atmospheric Particulate Matter (PM) is directly dependent on the interactions between PM and plant surfaces. However, the impact of individual
A Study in Self‐assessment: tutor and students’ perceptions of performance criteria
ABSTRACT This paper reports a study which implemented and evaluated a method of student self‐assessment. The theme of the importance of marking criteria (Orsmond et al., 1996) is developed. Pairs of
The Use of Exemplars and Formative Feedback when Using Student Derived Marking Criteria in Peer and Self-assessment
This paper reports a study which implemented a method of student self and peer assessment involving student constructed marking criteria in the presence of exemplars. Pairs of first-year
Effects of a short ozone exposure given at different stages in the development of Plantago major L.
summary This paper reports a comparison of the effects of the same ozone exposure given at different stages of growth on a population of Plantago major L., which is as sensitive to ozone as Bel-W3
A rapid change in ozone resistance of Plantago major after summers with high ozone concentrations
summary Ozone concentrations in Britain vary greatly from year to year. In the mid-1980s they were relatively low but in 1989 and 1990 the number of hours when concentrations exceeded 60 nl 1−1 was
