  • Assessing the effectiveness of conservation measures : resolving the "wicked" problem of the Steller sea lion 

    Boyd, Ian Lamont (2010-07) - Journal article
    “Wicked” problems are those that are complex and that change when solutions are applied. Many conflicts in conservation fall in to this category. The study approached the problem of how to constrain the apparent wickedness ...
  • The evolution of the cold interstellar medium in galaxies following a starburst 

    Rowlands, K.; Wild, V.; Nesvadba, N.; Sibthorpe, B.; Mortier, A.; Lehnert, M.; da Cunha, E. (2015-03-01) - Journal article
    We present the evolution of dust and molecular gas properties in a sample of 11 z ˜ 0.03 starburst to post-starburst (PSB) galaxies selected to span an age sequence from ongoing starburst to 1 Gyr after the starburst ended. ...
  • Extinction is imminent for Mexico’s endemic porpoise unless fishery bycatch is eliminated 

    Taylor, Barbara L.; Rojas-Bracho, Lorenzo; Moore, Jeffrey; Jaramillo-Legorreta, Armando; Ver Hoef, Jay M.; Cardenas-Hinojosa, Gustavo; Nieto-Garcia, Edwyna; Barlow, Jay; Gerrodette, Tim; Tregenza, Nicholas; Thomas, Len; Hammond, Philip S. (2016-12-05) - Journal item
    The number of Mexico’s endemic porpoise, the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), is collapsing primarily due to bycatch in illegal gillnets set for totoaba (Totoaba macdonaldi), an endangered fish whose swim bladders are exported ...
  • Herschel(star)-ATLAS: properties of dusty massive galaxies at low and high redshifts 

    Rowlands, K.; Dunne, L.; Dye, S.; Aragon-Salamanca, A.; Maddox, S.; da Cunha, E.; Smith, D. J. B.; Bourne, N.; Eales, S.; Gomez, H. L.; Smail, I.; Alpaslan, M.; Clark, C. J. R.; Driver, S.; Ibar, E.; Ivison, R. J.; Robotham, A.; Smith, M. W. L.; Valiante, E. (2014-06) - Journal article
    We present a comparison of the physical properties of a rest-frame 250-mu m-selected sample of massive, dusty galaxies from 0 <z <5.3. Our sample comprises 29 high-redshift submillimetre galaxies (SMGs) from the literature ...
  • Mating ecology explains patterns of genome elimination 

    Gardner, Andy; Ross, Laura (2014-12) - Journal article
    Genome elimination – whereby an individual discards chromosomes inherited from one parent, and transmits only those inherited from the other parent – is found across thousands of animal species. It is more common in ...
  • Passive acoustic monitoring of the decline of Mexico's critically endangered vaquita 

    Jaramillo-Legorreta, Armando; Cardenas-Hinojosa, Gustavo; Nieto-Garcia, Edwyna; Rojas-Bracho, Lorenzo; Hoef, Jay Ver; Moore, Jeffrey; Tregenza, Nicholas; Barlow, Jay; Gerrodette, Tim; Thomas, Len; Taylor, Barbara (2016-12-05) - Journal article
    The vaquita (Phocoena sinus) is the world's most endangered marine mammal with ≈245 individuals remaining in 2008. This species of porpoise is endemic to the northern Gulf of California, Mexico, and has historically suffered ...
