Despite widespread concern about declines in pollination services, little is known about the patterns of change in most pollinator assemblages. By studying bee and hoverfly assemblages in Britain and the Netherlands, we found evidence of declines (pre-versus post-1980) in local bee diversity in both countries; however, divergent trends were observed in(More)
The SCA-J Common Annotations and APIs Specification defines a Java syntax for programming concepts defined in the SCA Assembly Model Specification. It specifies a set of APIs and annotations that can be used by Java-based artifacts described by other SCA specifications such as the POJO Component Implementation Specification [JAVA_CI]. Specifically, this(More)
The Regenstrief Medical Record System (RMRS) continues to grow in depth and breadth. At Clarian and Wishard, over 200 million coded observations are stored along with 3.25 million text reports, 212,000 images (mostly radiographs) and 13.8 million orders for 1.55 million registered patients. Additional data are being incorporated on an ongoing basis(More)
1. A 39-year bumblebee data base was used to study the codistribution of six cuckoo bumblebees in the subgenus Psythirus of Bombus (hereafter called Psythirus) and their free-living bumblebee hosts in the British Isles. 2. A model of nest parasitism predicted host threshold densities and stable deterministic dynamics, with fluctuations only emerging as a(More)

The apparent reduction of solitary and primitively eusocial bees populations has remained a huge concern over the past few decades and urbanisation is considered as one of the factors affecting bees at different scales depending on bee guild. As urbanisation is increasing globally it necessitates more research to understand the complex community dynamics of(More)
In 1998, MoD commissioned ANSYS CFX to develop a numerical procedure, based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), aimed at providing a practical tool which can be integrated into design processes in order to optimise low-pressure fine water spray fire suppression systems. The work, which employs the CFX software, included a sensitivity study which(More)
