The Scottish Oceans Institute is an interdisciplinary research institute studying the marine environment which forms a key focus for research excellence in marine-related science. Our research interests range from the deep oceans to the coasts, and from the people who use and interact with the sea, to the biological and physical processes that make the oceans function.

  • Divergent biodiversity change within ecosystems 

    Magurran, Anne Elizabeth; Deacon, Amy Elizabeth; Moyes, Faye Helen; Shimadzu, Hideyasu; Azeredo de Dornelas, Maria Ana; Phillip, Dawn; Ramnarine, Indar (2018-02-20) - Journal article
    The Earth’s ecosystems are under unprecedented pressure, yet the nature of contemporary biodiversity change is not well understood. Growing evidence that community size is regulated highlights the need for improved ...
  • Spatial modeling with R-INLA : a review 

    Bakka, Haakon; Rue, Håvard; Fuglstad, Geir-arne; Riebler, Andrea; Bolin, David; Illian, Janine; Krainski, Elias; Simpson, Daniel; Lindgren, Finn (2018-07-05) - Journal item
    Coming up with Bayesian models for spatial data is easy, but performing inference with them can be challenging. Writing fast inference code for a complex spatial model with realistically‐sized datasets from scratch is ...
  • Influence of sampling and disturbance history on climatic sensitivity of temperature-limited conifers 

    Rydval, Miloš; Druckenbrod, Daniel L; Svoboda, Miroslav; Trotsiuk, Volodymyr; Janda, Pavel; Mikoláš, Martin; Čada, Vojtěch; Bače, Radek; Teodosiu, Marius; Wilson, Rob (2018-07-26) - Journal article
    Accurately capturing medium- to low-frequency trends in tree-ring data is vital to assessing climatic response and developing robust reconstructions of past climate. Non-climatic disturbance can affect growth trends in ...
  • Evaluating the potential of photo-identification as a monitoring tool for flapper skate (Dipturus intermedius) 

    Benjamins, Steven; Dodd, Jane; Thorburn, James; Milway, Victoria A.; Campbell, Ronald; Bailey, David M. (2018-07-27) - Journal article
    1. Flapper skates (Dipturus intermedius) were once widespread in European shelf waters but are currently classified as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature due to historical ...
