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

    Borchers, David Louis; Cox, Martin James (2016-10-17) - 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 ...
  • The distribution and amount of carbon in the largest peatland complex in Amazonia 

    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 ...
  • Do we care about sustainability? An analysis of time sensitivity of social preferences under environmental time-persistent effects 

    Faccioli, Michela; Hanley, Nick; Torres, Cati; Font, Antoni Riera (2016-07-15) - Journal article
    Environmental cost-benefit analysis has traditionally assumed that the value of benefits is sensitive to their timing and that outcomes are valued higher, the sooner in time they occur following implementation of a project ...
  • Dose response severity functions for acoustic disturbance in cetaceans using recurrent event survival analysis 

    Harris, Catriona M; Sadykova, Dinara; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Miller, Patrick; Kvadsheim, Petter; Lam, Frans-Peter; Thomas, Len (2015-11-20) - Journal article
    Behavioral response studies (BRSs) aim to enhance our understanding of the behavior changes made by animals in response to specific exposure levels of different stimuli, often presented in an increasing dosage. Here, we ...
  • Drivers of atmospheric methane uptake by montane forest soils in the southern Peruvian Andes 

    Jones, S; Diem, Torsten; Huaraca Quispe, L; Cahuana, A; Reay, D; Meir, P; Teh, Yit Arn (2016-01-27) - Journal article
    The soils of tropical montane forests can act as sources or sinks of atmospheric methane (CH4). Understanding this activity is important in regional atmospheric CH4 budgets, given that these ecosystems account for substantial ...
  • Drivers of public attitudes towards small wind turbines in the UK 

    Tatchley, Cerian; Paton, Heather; Robertson, Emma; Minderman, Jeroen; Hanley, Nicholas David; Park, Kirsty (2016-03-24) - Journal article
    Small Wind Turbines (SWTs) are a growing micro-generation industry with over 870,000 installed units worldwide. No research has focussed on public attitudes towards SWTs, despite evidence the perception of such attitudes ...
