Characterisation and expression analysis of cathepsins and ubiquitin-proteasome genes in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) skeletal muscle
(2015-04-15) - Journal article,
Background: The proteolytic enzymes involved in normal protein turnover in fish muscle are also responsible for post-mortem softening of the flesh and are therefore potential determinants of product quality. The main enzyme ...
Measuring acoustic habitats
(2015-03) - Journal article,
Many organisms depend on sound for communication, predator/prey detection and navigation. The acoustic environment can therefore play an important role in ecosystem dynamics and evolution. A growing number of studies are ...
Experimental evidence that wildflower strips increase pollinator visits to crops
(2015-08-19) - Journal article,
Wild bees provide a free and potentially diverse ecosystem service to farmers growing pollination-dependent crops. While many crops benefit from insect pollination, soft fruit crops, including strawberries are highly ...
Organizing, supporting and linking the world marine biodiversity research community
(2015-02-10) - Journal item,
Fast- and slow-exploring pigeons differ in how they use previously learned rules
(2017-01) - Journal article,
Several studies report a correlation between exploratory behaviour and performance on tests of cognitive ability. Exploration may influence learning because less exploratory animals are less likely to come in contact with ...
A general framework for animal density estimation from acoustic detections across a fixed microphone array
(2015-01) - Journal article,
Acoustic monitoring can be an efficient, cheap, non-invasive alternative to physical trapping of individuals. Spatially explicit capture-recapture (SECR) methods have been proposed to estimate calling animal abundance and ...
Overcoming the challenges of studying conservation physiology in large whales : a review of available methods
(2013-05-15) - Journal article,
Large whales are subjected to a variety of conservation pressures that could be better monitored and managed if physiological information could be gathered readily from free-swimming whales. However, traditional approaches ...
The extent and costs of reproductive interference among four species of true bug
(2015-04) - Journal article,
Reproductive interference arises when individuals of one species engage in reproductive activities with individuals of another, leading to fitness costs in one or both species. Reproductive interference (RI) therefore has ...
Experimental evidence for the effect of small wind turbine proximity and operation on bird and bat activity
(2012-07-30) - Journal article,
The development of renewable energy technologies such as wind turbines forms a vital part of strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. Although large wind farms generate the majority of wind energy, the small ...
Spatial variability in condition of southern rock lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) at the start of the Tasmanian fishing season
(2016-11-15) - Journal article,
The southern rock lobster (Jasus edwardsii) industry in Australia favours red lobsters, which are usually caught in shallow waters, over paler (brindle) lobsters. This preference is driven partly by the Chinese market, ...
