Evaluating the effect of measurement error in pairs of 3D bearings in point transect sampling estimates of density
(University of St Andrews, 2018-03-27) - Report,
Modelling harbour seal movements
(Scottish Government, 2017-10-11) - Report,
Harbour Seal Decline - vital rates and drivers : Report to Scottish Government MMSS/002/15
(SMRU, 2016-06) - Report,
Numbers of harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) have dramatically declined in several regions of the north and east of Scotland, while numbers have remained stable or have increased in regions on the west coast. For any management ...
Defining and evaluating the impact of cross-disciplinary conservation research
(2010-12) - Journal article,
Cross-disciplinary research is advocated as a way of improving understanding of the complexity of environmental problems; cross-disciplinary projects, centres and academic institutes have increased. However, there is ...
Floodplain ecohydrology : climatic, anthropogenic, and local physical controls on partitioning of water sources to riparian trees
(2014) - Journal article,
Seasonal and annual partitioning of water within river floodplains has important implications for ecohydrologic links between the water cycle and tree growth. Climatic and hydrologic shifts alter water distribution between ...
Assessing performance of Bayesian state-space models fit to Argos Satellite telemetry locations processed with Kalman Filtering
(2014-03-20) - Journal article,
Argos recently implemented a new algorithm to calculate locations of satellite-tracked animals that uses a Kalman filter (KF). The KF algorithm is reported to increase the number and accuracy of estimated positions over ...
Continental growth and the crustal record
(2013-12-08) - Journal item,
The continental crust is the archive of Earth history. The spatial and temporal distribution of the Earth's record of rock units and events is heterogeneous with distinctive peaks and troughs in the distribution of ages ...
Not all supercontinents are created equal : Gondwana-Rodinia case study
(2013-07) - Journal article,
The geologic records associated with the formation of the supercontinents Rodinia and Gondwana have markedly different seawater Sr and zircon Hf isotopic signatures. Rodinia-related (Grenville-Sveconorwegian-Sunsas) orogens ...
Impact of coarse sediment supply from hillslopes to the channel in runoff-dominated, dryland fluvial systems
(2014-06) - Journal article,
Sediment supply from hillslopes to channels is an important control on basin functioning and evolution. However, current theoretical frameworks do not adequately consider processes of runoff-driven hillslope sediment supply, ...
Spatial variation in maximum dive depth in gray seals in relation to foraging.
(2014-07) - Journal article,
Habitat preference maps are a way of representing animals’ space use in two dimensions. For marine animals, the third dimension is an important aspect of spatial ecology. We used dive data from seven gray seals Halichoerus ...
