Centre for Biological Diversity (CBD) Research
The Centre for Biological Diversity (CBD) is a new initiative building on St Andrews' strengths in fundamental and applied research into the origins and maintenance of biodiversity. The CBD has strong collaborative links with researchers found across the University in the Schools of Biology, Psychology, Geography & GeoSciences, Mathematics and Management.

SIDER : an R package for predicting trophic discrimination factors of consumers based on their ecology and phylogenetic relatedness (2017-12-26) - Journal articleStable isotope mixing models (SIMMs) are an important tool used to study species' trophic ecology. These models are dependent on, and sensitive to, the choice of trophic discrimination factors (TDF) representing the offset ...
