In-situ observations using tagged animals
(2017-02-21) - Conference paper,
Marine mammals help gather information on some of the harshest environments on the planet, through the use of miniaturized ocean sensors glued on their fur. Since 2004, hundreds of diving marine animals, mainly Antarctic ...
From siphonophores to deep scattering layers: uncertainty ranges for the estimation of global mesopelagic fish biomass
(2018-04-19) - Journal article,
The mesopelagic community is important for downward oceanic carbon transportation and is a potential food source for humans. Estimates of global mesopelagic fish biomass vary substantially (between 1 and 20 Gt). Here, we ...
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 ...
Modelling harbour seal movements
(Scottish Government, 2017-10-11) - Report,
Harbour porpoise habitat preferences : robust spatio-temporal inferences from opportunistic data
(2012-02-23) - Journal article,
Statistical habitat modelling is often flagged as a cost-effective decision tool for species management. However, data that can produce predictions with the desired precision are difficult to collect, especially for species ...
Culturally transmitted song exchange between humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the southeast Atlantic and southwest Indian Ocean basins
(2018-11) - Journal article,
In migratory marine species, investigating population connectivity and structure can be challenging given barriers to dispersal are less evident and multiple factors may influence individual movement patterns. Male humpback ...
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,
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 ...
