Biodiversity assessment of freshwater fishes : Thailand as a case study
(University of St Andrews, 2012-11-29) - Thesis
A key challenge in biodiversity is: How many species are there on earth? This issue is especially acute in poorly surveyed regions with high diversity, particularly Southeast Asia that also experiences many limitations ...
Investigating the behavioural consequences of evolutionary signal loss in the context of a naturalistic environment
(University of St Andrews, 2019-06-26) - Thesis
The evolutionary loss of sexual traits is thought to be common, but empirical examples of it occurring are rare. In this thesis, I investigate social and other behavioural factors that might facilitate signal loss. ...
Is all learning innovation?
(2007) - Journal article
Research on animal innovation is an underdeveloped field, and for this reason we welcome the efforts Ramsey and colleagues have made to stimulate its study in wild populations. However, we feel that in attempting to find ...
Changes in localisation and dynamics of splicing and alternative splicing factors in human lens epithelial cells of myotonic dystrophy type 1 patients
(University of St Andrews, 2013) - Thesis
Lens growth and development is a life-long process in which epithelial cells from the perimeter of the lens migrate towards the centre of the lens and follow a dynamic programme of differentiation and structured DNA and ...

Evolution of muscle regulatory genes in chordates

The diffusion of culture: computational and statistical models of social learning and cultural transmission
(University of St Andrews, 2017) - Thesis
Culture is a hugely important process in the evolution of humans and many non-human animals. Through the formation of long lasting traditions, culture provides an extragenetic inheritance mechanism that can facilitate rapid ...
