Effects of season and sediment-water exchange processes on the partitioning of pesticides in the catchment environment: implications for pesticides monitoring. (2019)
Journal Article
CUI, S., HOUGH, R., YATES, K., OSPREY, M., KERR, C., COOPER, P., COULL, M. and ZHANG, Z. 2020. Effects of season and sediment-water exchange processes on the partitioning of pesticides in the catchment environment: implications for pesticides monitoring.

Current and historic pesticide use has potential to compromise e.g. drinking water sources due to both primary and secondary emission sources. Understanding the spatial and temporal dynamics of emissions might help inform management decisions. To exp... Read More

Prescribers' views and experiences of using direct acting oral anticoagulants in the management of non‐valvular atrial fibrillation: a survey in remote and rural Scotland. (2019)
Journal Article
GENERALOVA, D., CUNNINGHAM, S., LESLIE, S.J., RUSHWORTH, G., MCIVER, L. and STEWART, D. 2019.
