Mechanical vulnerability explains size-dependent mortality of reef corals
(2014-08) - Journal article,
Understanding life history and demographic variation among species within communities is a central ecological goal. Mortality schedules are especially important in ecosystems where disturbance plays a major role in structuring ...
A 3D stereo camera system for precisely positioning animals in space and time
(2015-04) - Journal article,
Here, we describe a portable stereo camera system that integrates a GPS receiver, an attitude sensor and 3D stereo photogrammetry to rapidly estimate the position of multiple animals in space and time. We demonstrate the ...
International Quiet Ocean Experiment science plan
(Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research / Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, 2015) - Report,
Sound production and associated behavior of tagged fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus) in the Southern California Bight
(2015-08-03) - Journal article,
Background: For marine animals, acoustic communication is critical for many life functions, yet individual calling behavior is poorly understood for most large whale species. These topics are important for understanding ...
The east coast of Scotland bottlenose dolphin population : improving understanding of ecology outside the Moray Firth SAC
(Department of Energy and Climate Change, 2014-05-07) - Report,
Control of mode and intermediate water mass properties in Drake Passage by the Amundsen Sea low
(2013-07) - Journal article,
The evolution of the physical properties of Subantarctic Mode Water (SAMW) and Antarctic Intermediate Water (AAIW) in the Drake Passage region are examined on time scales down to intraseasonal, within the 1969 - 2009 period. ...
An alternative method for correcting fluorescence quenching
(2015-01-13) - Journal article,
Under high light intensity, phytoplankton protect their photosystems from bleaching through non-photochemical quenching processes. The consequence of this is suppression of fluorescence emission, which must be corrected ...
The ecosystem of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at the sub-polar front and Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone; ECO-MAR project strategy and description of the sampling programme 2007-2010
(2013-12-15) - Journal article,
The ECOMAR project investigated photosynthetically-supported life on the North Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) between the Azores and Iceland focussing on the Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone area in the vicinity of the sub-polar front ...
Framework for assessing impacts of pile-driving noise from offshore wind farm construction on a harbour seal population
(2013-11-01) - Journal article,
Offshore wind farm developments may impact protected marine mammal populations, requiring appropriate assessment under the EU Habitats Directive. We describe a framework developed to assess population level impacts of ...
