Centre for Research into Ecological & Environmental Modelling (CREEM)
CREEM is an inter-disciplinary research centre at the University of St Andrews, linking researchers from the schools of Mathematics and Statistics, Biology and Geography and Geosciences. Our remit is to develop and apply advanced mathematical and statistical methods to practical problems in biology, ecology and geography.

(2017-04-28) - Journal article1. Vessels can have acute and chronic impacts on marine species. The rate of increase in commercial shipping is accelerating, and there is a need to quantify and potentially manage the risk of these impacts. 2. Usage ...
Lianas and soil nutrients predict fine-scale distribution of above-ground biomass in a tropical moist forest (2016-11) - Journal article1. Prediction of carbon dynamics in response to global climate change requires an understanding of the processes that govern the distribution of carbon stocks. Above ground biomass (AGB) in tropical forests is regulated ...
Animal Counting Toolkit : a practical guide to small-boat surveys for estimating abundance of coastal marine mammals (2017-08-10) - Journal articleSmall cetaceans (dolphins and porpoises) face serious anthropogenic threats in coastal habitats. These include bycatch in fisheries; exposure to noise, plastic and chemical pollution; disturbance from boaters; and climate ...
A new insight for monitoring ungulates : density surface modelling of roe deer in a Mediterranean habitat (2016-10) - Journal articleUngulates are especially difficult to monitor, and population estimates are challenging to obtain; nevertheless, such information is fundamental for effective management. This is particularly important for expanding species ...
(2017-07-26) - Journal articleMany theoretical models of community dynamics predict that species richness (S) and total abundance (N) are regulated in their temporal fluctuations. Here we present novel evidence for widespread regulation of biodiversity. ...
