    • A critical review of the literature on population modelling 

      Cabrelli, Abigail; Harwood, John; Matthiopoulos, Jason; New, Leslie Frances; Thomas, Len (University of St Andrews, 2009) - Report
      The 2005 report of the National Research Council’s ‘Committee on Characterizing Biologically Significant Marine Mammal Behavior’ proposed a framework, which they called PCAD - Population Consequences of Acoustic Disturbance, ...
    • The modelling and assessment of whale-watching impacts 

      New, Leslie Frances; Hall, Ailsa Jane; Harcourt, R.; Kaufman, G.; Parsons, E.C.M.; Pearson, H.C.; Cosentino, A.M.; Schick, Robert Schilling (2015-10) - Journal article
      In recent years there has been significant interest in modelling cumulative effects and the population consequences of individual changes in cetacean behaviour and physiology due to disturbance. One potential source of ...
    • Multi-species state-space modelling of the hen harrier (Circus cyaneus) and red grouse (Lagopus lagopus scoticus) in Scotland 

      New, Leslie Frances (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-23) - Thesis
      State-space modelling is a powerful tool to study ecological systems. The direct inclusion of uncertainty, unification of models and data, and ability to model unobserved, hidden states increases our knowledge about the ...
    • A risk function for behavioral disruption of Blainville’s beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) from mid-frequency active sonar 

      Moretti, David; Thomas, Len; Marques, Tiago A.; Harwood, John; Dilley, Ashley; Neales, Bert; Shaffer, Jessica; Mccarthy, E; New, Leslie Frances; Jarvis, S; Morrissey, Ron (2014-01) - Journal article
      There is increasing concern about the potential effects of noise pollution on marine life in the world’s oceans. For marine mammals, anthropogenic sounds may cause behavioral disruption, and this can be quantified using a ...
    • Using energetic models to investigate the survival and reproduction of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae) 

      New, Leslie Frances; Moretti, David; Hooker, Sascha Kate; Costa, Daniel P.; Simmons, Samantha E. (2013-07-17) - Journal article
      Mass stranding of several species of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae) associated with exposure to anthropogenic sounds has raised concern for the conservation of these species. However, little is known about the species’ ...
    • Using short-term measures of behaviour to estimate long-term fitness of southern elephant seals. 

      New, Leslie Frances; Clark, James; Costa, Daniel; Fleishman, Erica; Hindell, Mark; Klanjšček, Tin; Lusseau, David; Kraus, Scott; McMahon, Clive; Robinson, Patrick; Schick, Robert Schilling; Schwartz, Lisa; Simmons, Samantha; Thomas, Len; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Harwood, John (2014-01-27) - Journal article
      Environmental changes (a type of disturbance) are altering the habitat of southern elephant seals Mirounga leonina, an apex marine predator in the Southern Ocean. As a result, individuals may shift their behaviour, spending ...
