  • Fine-scale harbour seal usage for informed marine spatial planning 

    Jones, Esther Lane; Sparling, Carol Elizabeth; McConnell, Bernie J; Morris, Christopher; Smout, Sophie Caroline (2017-09-14) - Journal article
    High-resolution species distribution maps are required for marine spatial planning, consenting, and licensing to assess interactions between anthropogenic activities and ecosystems. This approach can inform conservation ...
  • Intrinsic and extrinsic drivers of activity budgets in sympatric grey and harbour seals 

    Russell, Deborah Jill Fraser; McClintock, Brett Thomas; Matthiopoulos, Jason; Thompson, Paul; Thompson, David; Hammond, Philip Steven; Jones, Esther Lane; MacKenzie, Monique; Moss, Simon; McConnell, Bernie J (2015-11) - Journal article
    Investigation of activity budgets in relation to seasonal, intrinsic (age, sex) and extrinsic (time of day, spatial) covariates enables an understanding of how such covariates shape behavioural strategies. However, conducting ...
  • Multi-decadal and ontogenetic trophic shifts inferred from stable isotope ratios of pinniped teeth 

    Hanson, Nora N.; Jones, Esther Lane; Harris, Robert (2018-01) - Journal article
    Identifying and characterizing top predators’ use of trophic resources provides important information about animal ecology and their response to changing conditions. Information from sources such as stable isotopes can be ...
  • Novel application of a quantitative spatial comparison tool to species distribution data 

    Jones, Esther Lane; Rendell, Luke Edward; Pirotta, Enrico; Long, Jed A. (2016-11) - Journal article
    Comparing geographically referenced maps has become an important aspect of spatial ecology (e.g. assessing change in distribution over time). Whilst humans are adept at recognising and extracting structure from maps (i.e. ...
  • Patterns of space use in sympatric marine colonial predators reveals scales of spatial partitioning 

    Jones, Esther Lane; McConnell, Bernie J; Smout, Sophie Caroline; Hammond, Philip Steven; Duck, Callan David; Morris, Christopher; Thompson, David; Russell, Deborah Jill Fraser; Vincent, Cecile; Cronin, Michelle; Sharples, Ruth Jemma; Matthiopoulos, Jason (2015-08-27) - Journal article
    Species distribution maps can provide important information to focus conservation efforts and enable spatial management of human activities. Two sympatric marine predators, grey seals Halichoerus grypus and harbour seals ...
  • Population scaling in 5 km x 5 km grey and harbour seal usage maps. Note to Scottish Government MMSS/002/15 

    Jones, Esther Lane; Morris, Christopher; Smout, Sophie Caroline; McConnell, Bernie J (Marine Scotland, 2016-10-14) - Report
  • Spatial ecology of marine top predators 

    Jones, Esther Lane (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-21) - Thesis
    Species distribution maps can provide important information to focus conservation efforts and enable spatial management of human activities. Two sympatric marine predators, grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) and harbour seals ...
