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, ...
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 ...
Concentration of perfluorinated compounds and cotinine in human foetal organs, placenta, and maternal plasma
(2017-10-15) - Journal article,
Background: Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are bio-accumulative pollutants, and prenatal exposure to PFASs is believed to impact human foetal development and may have long-term adverse health effects later in life. ...
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 ...
Using agent-based models to understand the role of individuals in the song evolution of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae)
(2018) - Journal article,
Male humpback whales produce hierarchically structured songs, primarily during the breeding season. These songs gradually change over the course of the breeding season, and are generally population specific. However, ...
Incorporating animal movement into distance sampling
(2017-09-08) - Journal article,
Distance sampling is a popular statistical method to estimate the density of wild animal populations. Conventional distance sampling represents animals as fixed points in space that are detected with an unknown probability ...
New irreversible α-ʟ-iduronidase inhibitors and activity-based probes
(2018-11-26) - Journal article,
Cyclophellitol aziridines are potent irreversible inhibitors of retaining glycosidases and versatile intermediates in the synthesis of activity‐based glycosidase probes (ABPs). Direct 3‐amino‐2‐(trifluoromethyl)quinazoli ...
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 ...
Open population maximum likelihood spatial capture-recapture
(2017-09-04) - Journal article,
Open population capture-recapture models are widely used to estimate population demographics and abundance over time. Bayesian methods exist to incorporate open population modelling with spatial capture-recapture, allowing ...
The dangerous battles over sex and gender
(2017-12) - Journal item,
