Reports

The majority of the reports provided here were delivered to the Isle of Man Government, DEFA, to provide updates on research progress and advice based on information available at the time of writing. Since our research is ongoing additional data are collected on a regular basis. Therefore, the results presented in these reports may have been developed since the time of writing. New reports will be made available here together with links to peer-reviewed publications where possible. We will also include other relevant reports where appropriate. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information (l.murray@bangor.ac.uk).
