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 ...
A new approach to estimate fecundity rate from inter-birth intervals
(2017-04) - Journal article,
Accurate estimates of fecundity rate are key to population assessments and effectively direct conservation efforts. We present a new approach to estimate fecundity rate based on the probability of a female giving birth, ...
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 ...
Lack of behavioural responses of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) indicate limited effectiveness of sonar mitigation
(2017-11-15) - Journal article,
Exposure to underwater sound can cause permanent hearing loss and other physiological effects in marine animals. To reduce this risk, naval sonars are sometimes gradually increased in intensity at the start of transmission ...
Marine mammals exploring the oceans pole to pole : a review of the MEOP consortium
(2017-06) - Journal item,
Polar oceans are poorly monitored despite the important role they play in regulating the Earth’s climate system. Marine mammals equipped with biologging devices are now being used to fill the data gaps in these logistically ...
Status and future of research on the behavioural responses of marine mammals to U.S. Navy sonar
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Report,
A review of the status and future of research into behavioral responses of marine mammals to naval sonar exposure was undertaken to evaluate the return on investment of current US Navy funded programs, identify the data ...
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,
International Quiet Ocean Experiment science plan
(Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research / Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, 2015) - Report,
Dynamic habitat corridors for marine predators : intensive use of a coastal channel by harbour seals is modulated by tidal currents
(2016-12) - Journal article,
Previous studies have found that predators utilise habitat corridors to ambush prey moving through them. In the marine environment, coastal channels effectively act as habitat corridors for prey movements, and sightings ...
