    • Habitat preferences of juvenile Scottish ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) at stopover and wintering sites 

      Crawford, Ruth E.; Long, Jed A. (2017) - Journal article
      In this study, we use satellite-tracking data from five juvenile Scottish Ospreys Pandion haliaetus to explore habitat preferences at stopover and wintering sites. Daily activity patterns were analysed using a binomial ...
    • Potential path volume (PPV) : a geometric estimator for space use in 3D 

      Demšar, Urška; Long, Jed A. (2019-04-29) - Journal article
      Background: Many animals move in three dimensions and many animal tracking studies collect the data on their movement in three physical dimensions. However, there is a lack of approaches that consider the vertical dimension ...
    • Spatial ecology of marine top predators 

      Jones, Esther Lane (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-21) - Thesis
      Species distribution maps can provide important information to focus conservation efforts and enable spatial management of human activities. Two sympatric marine predators, grey seals (Halichoerus grypus) and harbour seals ...
    • Spatial variation in maximum dive depth in gray seals in relation to foraging. 

      Photopoulou, Theoni; Fedak, Mike; Thomas, Len; Matthiopoulos, Jason (2014-07) - Journal article
      Habitat preference maps are a way of representing animals’ space use in two dimensions. For marine animals, the third dimension is an important aspect of spatial ecology. We used dive data from seven gray seals Halichoerus ...
    • Turbulent flow reduces oxygen consumption in the labriform swimming shiner perch, Cymatogaster aggregata 

      van der Hoop, Julie M.; Byron, Margaret L.; Ozolina, Karlina; Miller, David L.; Johansen, Jacob L.; Domenici, Paolo; Steffensen, John F. (2018-06-12) - Journal article
      Fish swimming energetics are often measured in laboratory environments which attempt to minimize turbulence, though turbulent flows are common in the natural environment. To test whether the swimming energetics and kinematics ...
