  • Acoustic models of orangutan hand-assisted alarm calls 

    De Boer, Bart; Wich, Serge A.; Hardus, Madeleine E.; Lameira, Adriano R. (2015-03-18) - Journal article
    Orangutans produce alarm calls called kiss-squeaks, which they sometimes modify by putting a hand in front of their mouth. Through theoretical models and observational evidence, we show that using the hand when making a ...
  • Assessing the societal benefits of river restoration using the ecosystem services approach 

    Vermaat, Jan E.; Wagtendonk, Alfred J.; Brouwer, Roy; Sheremet, Oleg; Ansink, Erik; Brockhoff, Tim; Plug, Maarten; Hellsten, Seppo; Aroviita, Jukka; Tylec, Luiza; Giełczewski, Marek; Kohut, Lukas; Brabec, Karel; Haverkamp, Jantine; Poppe, Michaela; Böck, Kerstin; Coerssen, Matthijs; Segersten, Joel; Hering, Daniel (2016-04) - Journal article
    The success of river restoration was estimated using the ecosystem services approach. In eight pairs of restored–unrestored reaches and floodplains across Europe, we quantified provisioning (agricultural products, wood, ...
  • Effects of temperature and salinity on four species of northeastern Atlantic scyphistomae (Cnidaria Scyphozoa) 

    Widmer, Chad L.; Fox, Clive J.; Brierley, Andrew S. (2016-11-09) - Journal article
    Laboratory incubation experiments were conducted to examine the effects of different temperatures (4, 9, 14, 19, 23°C) and salinities (21, 27, 34) on survival and asexual reproduction of scyphistomae of Cyanea capillata, ...
  • Enhanced pelagic biomass around coral atolls 

    Letessier, Tom B.; Cox, Martin J.; Meeuwig, Jessica J.; Boersch-Supan, Philipp H.; Brierley, Andrew Stuart (2016-03-21) - Journal article
    Understanding the processes driving the distribution of mid-water prey such as euphausiids and lanternfish is important for effective management and conservation. In the vicinity of abrupt topographic features such as ...
  • Gammarus pulex show a grouping response to conspecific injury cues but not to predator kairomones 

    Smith, Lynsey; Webster, Michael Munro (2015-07) - Journal article
    Many species gain protection from predators by forming groups, but there is also evidence that some predators are better able to detect or more likely to attack grouped prey. Given this, it might pay prey to be flexible ...
  • Inter- and intra-year variation in foraging areas of breeding kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla) 

    Robertson, G. S.; Bolton, M.; Grecian, W. J.; Monaghan, P. (2014-09) - Journal article
    While seabird conservation efforts have largely focused on protection from threats at the colony (e.g. reducing disturbance and predation), attention is increasingly being given to implementing protection measures for ...
  • Methodology for single-cell genetic analysis of planktonic foraminifera for studies of protist diversity and evolution 

    Weiner, Agnes K M; Morard, Raphael; Weinkauf, Manuel F. G.; Darling, Kate F.; André, Aurore; Quillévéré, Frédéric; Ujiie, Yurika; Douady, Christophe J.; de Vargas, Colomban; Kucera, Michal (2016-12-15) - Journal item
    Single-cell genetic analysis is an essential method to investigate the biodiversity and evolutionary ecology of marine protists. In protist groups that do not reproduce under laboratory conditions, this approach provides ...
  • Resolving issues with environmental impact assessment of marine renewable energy installations 

    Maclean, Ilya M. D.; Inger, Richard; Benson, David; Booth, Cormac G.; Embling, Clare B.; Grecian, W. James; Heymans, Johanna J.; Plummer, Kate E.; Shackshaft, Michael; Sparling, Carol E.; Wilson, Ben; Wright, Lucy J.; Bradbury, Gareth; Christen, Nadja; Godley, Brendan J.; Jackson, Angus C.; McCluskie, Aly; Nicholls-Lee, Rachel; Bearhop, Stuart (2014-12-16) - Journal article
    Growing concerns about climate change and energy security have fueled a rapid increase in the development of marine renewable energy installations (MREIs). The potential ecological consequences of increased use of these ...
  • Response of benthic assemblages to multiple stressors : comparative effects of nutrient enrichment and physical disturbance 

    Kenworthy, Joseph M.; Paterson, David M.; Bishop, Melanie J. (2016-12-29) - Journal article
    Stressors to ecological communities often overlap in time and space and may have additive, synergistic or antagonistic effects. Nutrient enrichment and physical disturbance are 2 commonly co-occurring stressors to estuarine ...
  • Separating underwater ambient noise from flow noise recorded on stereo acoustic tags attached to marine mammals 

    von Benda-Beckmann, Alexander M.; Wensveen, Paul Jacobus; Samarra, Filipa I. P.; Beerens, S. Peter; Miller, Patrick J. O. (2016-08-03) - Journal article
    Sound-recording acoustic tags attached to marine animals are commonly used in behavioural studies. Measuring ambient noise is of interest to efforts to understand responses of marine mammals to anthropogenic underwater ...
  • Space-use and sociability are not related to public-information use in ninespine sticklebacks 

    Webster, Michael Munro; Laland, Kevin Neville (2015-06) - Journal article
    There has been much recent interest in both public information use, and the evolutionary origins and ecological consequences of animal personalities but surprisingly little integration of these two fields. Personality ...
  • The transport of Icelandic volcanic ash: insights from northern European cryptotephra records 

    Watson, E. J.; Swindles, G. T.; Stevenson, J. A.; Savov, I.; Lawson, I. T. (2016-10-30) - Journal article
    Fine ash produced during volcanic eruptions can be dispersed over a vast area, where it poses a threat to aviation, human health, and infrastructure. We analyze the particle size distributions, geochemistry, and glass shard ...
