Maternal selenium deficiency was positively associated with the risk of selenium deficiency in children aged 6–59 months in rural Zimbabwe (2024)
Journal Article

There is growing evidence showing the existence of selenium (Se) deficiency among women and children in sub-Saharan Africa. Unfortunately, the key drivers of Se deficiency are not clearly understood. This study assessed the determinants of Se deficie...

Stem-borne Roots as a Framework to Study Trans-organogenesis and Uncover Fundamental Insights in Developmental Biology (2024)
Journal Article

Plants have a remarkable ability to generate organs with a different identity to the parent organ, called “trans-organogenesis”. An example of trans-organogenesis is the formation of roots from stems (a type of adventitious root), which is the first...

Zero-tillage induces significant changes to the soil pore network and hydraulic function after 7 years (2024)
Journal Article

Zero-tillage and ploughing are highly contrasting soil management practices that have distinct roles in generating soil porosity. Ploughed systems employ anthropogenic perturbation to manage weed pressure and ensure optimal conditions at time of sowi...

Restoring understory and riparian areas in oil palm plantations does not increase greenhouse gas fluxes (2024)
Journal Article

Oil palm (OP) plantations have replaced large areas of forest in the tropical landscape of Southeast Asia and are major emitters of greenhouse gases (GHGs). To move towards more environmentally friendly plantation management, a hopeful approach is to...

Modelling the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antimicrobial resistance in dairy farms (2024)
Journal Article

Dairy slurry is a major source of environmental contamination with antimicrobial resistant genes and bacteria. We developed mathematical models and conducted on-farm research to explore the impact of wastewater flows and management practices on antim...
