  • Impact of biodiversity-climate futures on primary production and metabolism in a model benthic estuarine system 

    Hicks, Natalie; Bulling, Mark; Solan, Martin; Raffaelli, David; White, Piran; Paterson, David Maxwell (2011-02-14) - Journal article
    Understanding the effects of anthropogenically-driven changes in global temperature, atmospheric carbon dioxide and biodiversity on the functionality of marine ecosystems is crucial for predicting and managing the associated ...
  • The impact of ocean acidification on the functional morphology of foraminifera 

    Khanna, Nikki; Godbold, J A; Austin, William; Paterson, David Maxwell (2013-12-17) - Journal article
    Culturing experiments were performed on sediment samples from the Ythan Estuary, N. E. Scotland, to assess the impacts of ocean acidification on test surface ornamentation in the benthic foraminifer Haynesina germanica. ...
  • Impairment of the bacterial biofilm stability by triclosan 

    Lubarsky, Helen; Gerbersdorf, Sabine Ulrike; Hubas, Cedric Roger Rene; Behrens, Sebastian; Ricciardi, Francesco; Paterson, David Maxwell (2012-01-04) - Journal article
    The accumulation of the widely-used antibacterial and antifungal compound triclosan (TCS) in freshwaters raises concerns about the impact of this harmful chemical on the biofilms that are the dominant life style of ...
  • Light-dependant biostabilisation of sediments by stromatolite assemblages 

    Paterson, David Maxwell; Aspden, R J; Visscher, P T; Consalvey, M; Andres, M; Decho, A W; Stolz, J; Reid, P R (2008) - Journal article
    For the first time we have investigated the natural ecosystem engineering capacity of stromatolitic microbial assemblages. Stromatolites are laminated sedimentary structures formed by microbial activity and are considered ...
  • The pervasive role of biological cohesion in bedform development 

    Malarkey, Jonathan; Baas, Jaco; Hope, Julie Anne; Aspden, Rebecca Jane; Parsons, Daniel R.; Peakall, Jeff; Paterson, David Maxwell; Schindler, Robert; Ye, Leiping; Lichtman, Ian D.; Bass, Sarah J.; Davies, Alan G.; Manning, Andrews J.; Thorne, Peter D. (2015-02-06) - Journal article
    Sediment fluxes in aquatic environments are crucially dependent on bedform dynamics. However, sediment-flux predictions rely almost completely on clean-sand studies, despite most environments being composed of mixtures of ...
  • Photoacclimation, growth and distribution of massive coral species in clear and turbid waters 

    Hennige, S.J.; Smith, D.J.; Perkins, R.; Consalvey, M; Paterson, David Maxwell; Suggett, D.J. (2008-10-13) - Journal article
    ABSTRACT: Massive coral species play a key role in coral reef ecosystems, adding significantly to physical integrity, long term stability and reef biodiversity. This study coupled the assessment of the distribution and ...
