    Graham, Elspeth; Yeoh, Brenda S. A.; University of St Andrews. Geography & Sustainable Development (2013-12) - Journal item
  • The constant philopater hypothesis : a new life history invariant for dispersal evolution 

    Rodrigues, António; Gardner, Andy (2016-01) - Journal article
    Surprising invariance relationships have emerged from the study of social interaction, whereby a cancelling-out of multiple partial effects of genetic, ecological or demographic parameters means that they have no net impact ...
  • Contrasting migratory responses of two closely-related seabirds to long-term climate change 

    Grecian, W. James; Taylor, Graeme A.; Loh, Graeme; McGill, Rona A. R.; Miskelly, Colin M.; Phillips, Richard A.; Thompson, David R.; Furness, Robert W. (2016-11-09) - Journal article
    Many marine predators migrate between breeding and non-breeding areas to target resources that are seasonal but spatio-temporally predictable, and so are vulnerable to climate-induced changes in prey phenology and abundance. ...
  • Double time : Facing the future in migration’s past 

    Duncan, Derek Egerton (2011) - Journal article
    Interpretations of Italian films about migration tend to refer to the historical experience of emigration or of colonialism as the historical coordinates through which these films are best understood. This article looks ...
  • Ecology drives intragenomic conflict over menopause 

    Ubeda, Francisco; Ohtsuki, Hisashi; Gardner, Andy (2014-02) - Journal item
    Menopause is the transition from reproductive to non-reproductive life well before natural death. Rather than involving a smooth, rapid change, it is normally preceded by a long period of erratic hormonal fluctuation that ...
  • Electoral systems, taxation and immigration policies : which system builds a wall first? 

    Morelli, Massimo; Negri, Margherita (University of St Andrews, 2017-08-07) - Working or discussion paper
    When exposed to similar migration flows, countries with different institutional systems may respond with different levels of openness. We study in particular the different responses determined by different electoral systems. ...
  • An experimental evaluation of the effects of geolocator design and attachment method on between-year survival on Whinchats Saxicola rubetra 

    Blackburn, Emma; Burgess, Malcolm; Freeman, Ben; Risely, Alice; Izang, Arin; Ivande, Samuel Tertese; Hewson, Chris; Cresswell, Will (2016-07) - Journal article
    Data from location logging tags have revolutionised our understanding of migration ecology, but methods of tagging that do not compromise survival need to be identified. We compared resighting rates for 156 geolocator-tagged ...
  • Extreme conditions in a close analog to the young solar system : Herschel observations of ∈ Eridani 

    Greaves, Jane Sophia; Sibthorpe, B.; Acke, B.; Pantin, E. E.; Vandenbussche, B.; Olofsson, G.; Dominik, C.; Barlow, M. J.; Bendo, G. J.; Blommaert, J. A. D. L.; Brandeker, A.; de Vries, B. L.; Dent, W. R. F.; Di Francesco, J.; Fridlund, M.; Gear, W. K.; Harvey, P. M.; Hogerheijde, M. R.; Holland, W. S.; Ivison, R. J.; Liseau, R.; Matthews, B. C.; Pilbratt, G. L.; Walker, H. J.; Waelkens, C. (2014-08-10) - Journal article
    Far-infrared Herschel images of the Eridani system, seen at a fifth of the Sun's present age, resolve two belts of debris emission. Fits to the 160 μm PACS image yield radial spans for these belts of 12-16 and 54-68 AU. ...
  • Flight range, fuel load and the impact of climate change on the journeys of migrant birds 

    Howard, Christine; Stephens, Philip A.; Tobias, Joseph A.; Sheard, Catherine; Butchart, Stuart H. M.; Willis, Stephen G. (2018-02-28) - Journal article
    Climate change is predicted to increase migration distances for many migratory species, but the physiological and temporal implications of longer migratory journeys have not been explored. Here, we combine information about ...
  • The globalisation of marriage fields : the Swedish case 

    Niedomysl, Thomas; Osth, John; Van Ham, Maarten (2010-08) - Journal article
    Marriage fields - the geographical areas where people meet to partner traditionally tend to be relatively small and local. Increasing international travel and the use of the internet have broadened the geographical opportunity ...
  • High site fidelity in Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe wintering in Africa revealed through colour marking 

    Blackburn, Emma; Cresswell, William Richard Lawrence (2016) - Journal article
    Wintering Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe in the Sahel region of Northern Nigeria held small (c. 70 m diameter) distinct territories during the study period, and territory size did not differ between adult and first ...
  • Humpback whale song on the southern ocean feeding grounds : implications for cultural transmission 

    Garland, Ellen C.; Gedamke, Jason; Rekdahl, Melinda L.; Noad, Michael J.; Garrigue, Claire; Gales, Nick (2013-11-20) - Journal article
    Male humpback whales produce a long, complex, and stereotyped song on low-latitude breeding grounds; they also sing while migrating to and from these locations, and occasionally in high-latitude summer feeding areas. All ...
  • ‘Il clandestino è l’ebreo di oggi’ : imprints of the Shoah on migration to Italy 

    Duncan, Derek Egerton (2016-12-15) - Journal article
    Drawing on Rey Chow’s notion of “entanglement” and Michael Rothberg’s work on “multidirectional memory”, I look at the ways in which certain visual, lexical, and historical representations and tropes operate to create ...
  • The impact of splitting up and divorce on housing careers in the UK 

    Feijten, Peteke; Van Ham, Maarten (2010-05-20) - Journal article
    Using 1991-2004 data from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) this paper analyses the effect of union dissolution on the occurrence of moves, changes of dwelling type, and the probability of moving out of owner-occupation. ...
  • Intragenomic conflict over dispersal 

    Farrell, Elizabeth; Ubeda, Francisco; Gardner, Andy (2015-09) - Journal article
    IIntragenomic conflict may arise when social partners are more related through one parent than the other, e.g. owing to individuals or gametes of one sex dispersing further prior to fertilization. In particular, genes ...
  • Introduction to research on immigrant and ethnic minority families in Europe 

    Kulu, Hill; Hannemann, Tina (2016-07-06) - Journal article

  • Labour migration policy and constitutional change in Scotland 

    Bell, David; Findlay, Allan MacKay; McCollum, David (2014) - Journal article

  • A longitudinal study of migration propensities for mixed-ethnic unions in England and Wales 

    Feng, Z.; van Ham, M.; Boyle, P.; Raab, G.M. (2013) - Journal article
