Pollen and its contribution to respiratory outcomes in subtropical regions

Air quality is a strong predictor of respiratory health. In comparison to traditional sources like industry, transport, open burning, bushfires, power plants, the contribution of plant pollen is not so well studied in the sub-tropical/arid climate. Residents in the subtropical regions show higher al...

Investigation of the interface between electrochemically-active microorganisms and metals

The ability to interact electronically with conductive materials is a defining feature of electrochemically-active microorganisms. This process, known as extracellular electron transfer, results in a microbially-derived current and has been investigated primarily from the vantage point of maximising...
