(2017-05-12) - Journal articleThere is remarkable diversity in brain anatomy among vertebrates and evidence is accumulating that predatory interactions are crucially important for this diversity. To test this hypothesis, we collected female guppies ...
Evaluating detectability of freshwater fish assemblages in tropical streams : is hand-seining sufficient? (2017-07) - Journal articleUnprecedented threats to natural ecosystems mean that accurate quantification of biodiversity is a priority, particularly in the tropics which are underrepresented in monitoring schemes. Data from a freshwater fish assemblage ...
(2017-05-26) - Journal articleMany simulation studies have examined the properties of distance sampling estimators of wildlife population size. When assumptions hold, if distances are generated from a detection model and fitted using the same model, ...
(2016-11-11) - Journal articleDecisions about sustainable exploitation levels of marine resources are often based on inadequate data, but are nevertheless required for practical purposes. We describe one exception where abundance estimates spanning ...
