Novel methods for species distribution mapping including spatial models in complex regions
(University of St Andrews, 2013-11-05) - Thesis
Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) plays a key role in a number of biological applications: assessment of temporal trends in distribution, environmental impact assessment and spatial conservation planning. From a statistical ...
Bayesian modelling of integrated data and its application to seabird populations
(University of St Andrews, 2010-11-30) - Thesis
Integrated data analyses are becoming increasingly popular in studies of wild animal populations where two or more separate sources of data contain information about common parameters. Here we develop an integrated population ...
A Bayesian approach to modelling field data on multi-species predator prey-interactions
(University of St Andrews, 2006) - Thesis
Multi-species functional response models are required to model the predation of generalist preda- tors, which consume more than one prey species. In chapter 2, a new model for the multi-species functional response is ...
