Virtual Educational Resource for the Biosciences (VERB) - Eutherians - eXe File
VERB is an online animal diversity resource designed to accompany undergraduate degrees in the Biosciences. In this package, entitled VERB Eutherians, the groups discussed are the living placental mammals. Contained are a series of web pages outlining the diversity of the eutherians from an evolutionary perspective. The topics of focus are phylogeny (evolutionary history) and functional anatomy, but subjects as wide as genetics, ecology, physiology, and developmental biology are discussed where
Student diversity and the international dimension
This PowerPoint presentation explores student diversity and internationalisation. It is aimed at those working with students in HE. It covers ALT implications, global perspectives and working with disability.
Energy resources: wave energy
The energy carried by ocean waves derives from a proportion of the wind energy transferred to the ocean surface by frictional drag. So, ultimately it stems from the proportion of incoming solar energy that drives air movement. Just how much energy is carried by a single wave depends on the wind speed and the area of ocean surface that it crosses; wave height, wavelength, and therefore wave energy, are functions of the distance or fetch over which the wind blows. This unit considers the power of
Water is arguably the most important physical resource as it is the one that is essential to human survival. Understanding the global water cycle and how we use water is essential to planning a sustainable source of water for the future. In the UK there are areas where water supplies are limited, showin by recent droughts. Globally, there are many reas that do ot have enough water to support the current population adequately. Decisions will have to be made on the best way to use water in a world
Forces driving change in the global economy
Lecture slides by Derek Braddon, UWE Bristol for a course on Economic Analysis of Global Business 2 as taught in 2010.
Energy resources: tidal energy
The rise and fall of ocean tides result from the combined gravitational pull on water by the Moon and, to a lesser extent, bu the Sun, which exerts a force on water directed towards the two astronomical bodies. These gravitational effects combine with centrifugalo forces that result from the Earth and the Moon orbiting each other to make the details of tidal changes complex. This unit considers the power of the ocean tides as a potential source of useable energy and whether or not they can ever
Environment: Following the flows
What affects the atmospheric and ocean flows? This unit explores the mechanisms that are important; the most rapid carrier is the wind. The basic principle of global atmospheric circulation is simple: warm air rises and cold air sinks. How does this principle affect the atmosphere and flow of water in practical terms?

Guest Lecture: Senator George Mitchell - Olof Palme Memorial Peace
The University, in association with Leeds City Council and Leeds Peace Links groups, recently hosted the Leeds International Olof Palme Memorial Peace Lecture. CND Vice-President, Bruce Kent, delivered this year's lecture, The Global Elimination of Nuclear Weapons - Possibilities & Practicalities, at the Banqueting Suite at Leeds Civic Hall. Bruce Kent has been a life-long advocate for the campaign of total nuclear disarmament. At 80 years of age he remains dedicated to global peace being also t
Information Skills Unit 4: Using Reference Sources
This unit will help you appreciate the range of materials and the different information contained within them. As you work through the different tasks you will be able to identify and use the best sources for the information that you require.
National Science Week Posters
The Science Faculty Marketing Committee has for the last 4 years designed and produced posters to stimulate an interest in and curiosity about Science among primary school learners The posters are designed and created by scientists from the 13 departments in the Faculty of Science and the production and printing of the posters is funded by a Grant from SAASTA South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement The aim of the bright interactive posters is to create a resource for teachers
Module 5: Selecting Payment Methods
Select appropriate methods, terms, and currency of payment to agents, sales representatives, distributors, suppliers, and international joint ventures. MSU Global has teamed with experts in the international finance field to create resources to help increase international skills in the business community. These materials address the need of the international trade practitioner for knowledge and information that is specific to trade finance by providing a means for educators and business practit
15.023J Global Climate Change: Economics, Science, and Policy (MIT)
Introduces scientific, economic, and ecological issues underlying the threat of global climate change, and the institutions engaged in negotiating an international response. Develops an integrated approach to analysis of climate change processes, and assessment of proposed policy measures, drawing on research and model development within the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.
11.481J Analyzing & Accounting for Regional Economic Change (MIT)
Surveys theories of regional growth, factor mobility, clustering, industrial restructuring, learning regions, and global supply chains from a political-economy perspective. Examines/critiques accounting frameworks including accounting for the underground economy, multipliers, linkages, and supply chains used to assess employment and environmental impacts, infrastructure investments. Assesses price indices, industrial location and employment measures, and shift-share analyses. Discussions of US a
12.007 Geobiology (MIT)
The interactive Earth system: biology in geologic, environmental and climate change throughout Earth history. Since life began it has continually shaped and re-shaped the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and the solid earth. Subject introduces the concept of "life as a geological agent" and examines the interaction between biology and the earth system during the roughly 4 billion years since life first appeared. Topics include the origin of the solar system and the early Earth atmosphere; the
