  • Estimating the distribution of demand for Antarctic krill (Euphauisa superba) from land-based predators at South Georgia 

    Swarbrick, Matthew Lewis (University of St Andrews, 2007-07-01) - Thesis
    South Georgia is renowned for the abundance of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) and a range of krill predators. Variability in krill availability at a range of scales, and the consequences of this for predator-prey ...
  • Examining the response of top marine predators to ecological change using stable isotope proxies 

    Hanson, Nora Nell (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    Monitoring the response of upper trophic level animals to ecological change is important to understanding the state and stability of ecosystems. Marine predators integrate information over large geographical scales and ...

  • Investigating monitoring options for harbour seals in Special Areas of Conservation in Scotland 

    Cunningham, Louise (University of St Andrews, 2007-06-22) - Thesis
    Managing a wild population effectively requires knowledge of the abundance and behaviour of the species. Harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) are usually counted when they come ashore at haul-out sites, and so it is important ...
  • Making science count in government 

    Boyd, Ian (2013-07-02) - Journal article
    Science is an essential component of policy-making in most areas of government, but the scientific community does not always understand its role in this process.
  • Vessel noise affects beaked whale behavior : Results of a dedicated acoustic response study 

    Pirotta, Enrico; Milor, Rachel; Quick, Nicola Jane; Moretti, David; Dimarzio, Nancy; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Boyd, Ian; Hastie, Gordon Drummond (2012-08-03) - Journal article
    Some beaked whale species are susceptible to the detrimental effects of anthropogenic noise. Most studies have concentrated on the effects of military sonar, but other forms of acoustic disturbance (e.g. shipping noise) ...
