Attributing changes in the distribution of species abundance to weather variables using the example of British breeding birds (2017-12) - Journal article1. Modelling spatio-temporal changes in species abundance and attributing those changes to potential drivers such as climate, is an important but difficult problem. The standard approach for incorporating climatic variables ...
(2017-09) - Journal articleSome species make substantial contribution to habitat heterogeneity, supporting species coexistence. Dicksonia sellowiana Hook., an endangered tree fern, is a known phorophyte for epiphytes, has the potential to be such a ...
(2017-08) - Journal articleSynthesis centers offer a unique amalgam of culture, infrastructure, leadership, and support that facilitates creative discovery on issues crucial to science and society. The combination of logistical support, postdoctoral ...
(2018-04-01) - Journal articleThe importance of predation risk as a key driver of evolutionary change is exemplified by the Northern Range in Trinidad, where research on guppies living in multiple parallel streams has provided invaluable insights into ...
Last call: Passive acoustic monitoring shows continued rapid decline of critically endangered vaquita (2017-11) - Journal articleThe vaquita is a critically endangered species of porpoise. It produces echolocation clicks, making it a good candidate for passive acoustic monitoring. A systematic grid of sensors has been deployed for 3 months annually ...
