  • Achieving stable subspace clustering by post-processing generic clustering results 

    Pham, Duc-Son; Arandjelovic, Ognjen; Venkatesh, Svetha (IEEE, 2016-10-31) - Conference item
    We propose an effective subspace selection scheme as a post-processing step to improve results obtained by sparse subspace clustering (SSC). Our method starts by the computation of stable subspaces using a novel random ...
  • Acoustic and ecological investigations into predator-prey interactions between Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) and seal and bird predators 

    Cox, Martin James (University of St Andrews, 2008-11-27) - Thesis
    1. Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) form aggregations known as swarms that vary greatly in size and density. Six acoustic surveys were conducted as part of multidisciplinary studies at two study sites, the western and ...
  • Acoustic and foraging behavior of a Baird’s beaked whale, Berardius bairdii, exposed to simulated sonar 

    Stimpert, Alison; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Southall, Brandon; Moretti, David; Falcone, Erin; Goldbogen, Jeremy; Friedlaender, Ari; Schorr, Greg; Calambokidis, John (2014-11-13) - Journal article
    Beaked whales are hypothesized to be particularly sensitive to anthropogenic noise, based on previous strandings and limited experimental and observational data. However, few species have been studied in detail. We describe ...
  • Acoustic behaviour of Risso's dolphins, Grampus griseus, in the Canary Islands, Spain 

    Neves, Silvana (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    The Risso's dolphin (Grampus griseus) is a poorly studied species, particularly with respect to its acoustic behaviour. The little we know about Risso's dolphin acoustics shows that they are an interesting case study given ...
  • Acoustic communication in insect disease vectors 

    Vigoder, Felipe de Mello; Ritchie, Michael Gordon; Gibson, Gabriella; Peixoto, Alexandre Afranio (2013-12) - Journal article
    Acoustic signalling has been extensively studied in insect species, which has led to a better understanding of sexual communication, sexual selection and modes of speciation. The significance of acoustic signals for a ...
  • Acoustic investigations on bearded goby and jellyfish in the northern Benguela ecosystem 

    Uumati, Martha (University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
    Historically the nutrient rich Benguela ecosystem supported large stocks of commercially important fish which sustained the Namibian fishing sector. Recently, non-exploited species i.e. bearded goby (Sufflogobius bibarbatus) ...
  • Acoustic mechanisms of a species-based discrimination of the chick-a-dee call in sympatric black-capped (Poecile atricapillus) and mountain chickadees (P. gambeli) 

    Guillette, Lauren; Farrell, Tara; Hoeschele, Marisa; Sturdy, Christopher (2010) - Journal article
    Previous perceptual research with black-capped and mountain chickadees has demonstrated that these species treat each other’s namesake chick-a-dee calls as belonging to separate, open-ended categories. Further, the terminal ...
  • Acoustic playback experiments to study behavioral responses of free-ranging marine animals to anthropogenic sound 

    Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2009-12-03) - Journal article
    Growing concern about the effects of anthropogenic sound on marine life has highlighted the need for empirical methods to study behavioral responses of marine animals to specific acoustic exposures. Some effects have been ...
