The majority of the research at St Andrews takes place within the academic schools. However, large projects can form as research centres or institutes. When a grouping is concerned only with research collaboration, it is described as a Centre. When the grouping also provides undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, it is described as an Institute.

  • Simulating shifts in taxonomic and functional β-diversity of ray-finned fishes : probing the Mariana disaster 

    Trindade-Santos, Isaac; Eduardo, Anderson Aires; Moyes, Faye; Martinez, Pablo Ariel; Magurran, Anne E.; Gouveia, Sidney F. (2018-10-17) - Journal article
    Environmental catastrophes may precipitate local species extinctions, hence altering community composition (i.e., β-diversity) at the regional scale. Assessments of the impacts of such disturbance may be hindered by the ...
  • An open resource for non-human primate imaging

(2018-10-10) - Journal article
    Non-human primate neuroimaging is a rapidly growing area of research that promises to transform and scale translational and cross-species comparative neuroscience. Unfortunately, the technological and methodological advances ...
  • The moist parcel-in-cell method for modelling moist convection 

    Dritschel, D. G.; Böing, S. J.; Parker, D. J.; Blyth, A. M. (2018-10-04) - Journal article
    We describe a promising alternative approach to modelling moist convection and cloud development in the atmosphere. Rather than using a conventional grid‐based approach, we use Lagrangian “parcels” to represent key dynamical ...
  • A short review of the distribution of short-beaked common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) in the central and eastern North Atlantic with an abundance estimate for part of this area 

    Canadas, Ana Maria; Donovan, Greg P; Desportes, Geneviève; Borchers, David Louis (2009) - Journal article
    This paper uses data from 3 programmes: (1) the North Atlantic Sightings Surveys (NASS) surveys undertaken throughout much of the central and eastern North Atlantic north of about 40° N in 1987, 1989, 1995 and 2001; (2) ...
  • Minke whale abundance estimation from the NASS 1987 and 2001 aerial cue–counting surveys taking appropriate account of distance estimation errors 

    Borchers, David Louis; Pike, Daniel G; Gunnlaugsson, Thorvaldur; Víkingsson, Gísli A (2009) - Journal article
    We estimate the abundance of minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) from the Icelandic coastal shelf aerial surveys carried out as part of the 1987 and 2001 North Atlantic Sightings Surveys (NASS). In the case of the ...
