  • Distance sampling detection functions : 2D or not 2D? 

    Borchers, David Louis; Cox, Martin James (2017-06-15) - Journal article
    Conventional distance sampling (CDS) methods assume that animals are uniformly distributed in the vicinity of lines or points. But when animals move in response to observers before detection, or when lines or points are ...

    Draper, Frederick; Roucoux, Katherine Helen; Lawson, Ian Thomas; Mitchard, Edward; Honorio Coronado, Euridice; Lahteenoja, Outi; Torres Montenegro, Luis; Valderrama Sandoval, Elvis; Zarate, Ricardo; Baker, Timothy (2014-12) - Journal article
    Peatlands in Amazonian Peru are known to store large quantities of carbon, but there is high uncertainty in the spatial extent and total carbon stocks of these ecosystems. Here, we use a multi-sensor (Landsat, ALOS PALSAR ...
  • Do species conservation assessments capture genetic diversity? 

    Rivers, Malin Cecilia; Brummitt, Neil; Nic Lughadha, Eimear; Meagher, Thomas Robert (2014-12) - Journal article
    The best known system for classifying threat status of species, the IUCN Red List, currently lacks explicit considerations of genetic diversity, and consequently may not account for potential adaptation of species to future ...
