The east coast of Scotland bottlenose dolphin population : improving understanding of ecology outside the Moray Firth SAC
(Department of Energy and Climate Change, 2014-05-07) - Report,
Estimating population sizes of lions Panthera leo and spotted hyaenas Crocuta crocuta in Uganda’s savannah parks, using lure count methods
(2014-07) - Journal article,
Despite > 60 years of conservation in Uganda’s national parks the populations of lions and spotted hyaenas in these areas have never been estimated using a census method. Estimates for some sites have been extrapolated to ...
Characterisation and expression analysis of cathepsins and ubiquitin-proteasome genes in gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) skeletal muscle
(2015-04-15) - Journal article,
Background: The proteolytic enzymes involved in normal protein turnover in fish muscle are also responsible for post-mortem softening of the flesh and are therefore potential determinants of product quality. The main enzyme ...
Seamount influences on mid-water shrimps (Decapoda) and Gnathophausiids (Lophogastridea) of the South-West Indian ridge
(2017-02) - Journal article,
Maintenance of often-observed elevated levels of pelagic diversity and biomass on seamounts, that are of relevance to conservation and fishery management, involves complex interactions between physical and biological ...
Echolocation : clicking for supper
(2015-04-29) - Journal article,
When close to prey, porpoises actively widen their sonar beam, which may make it harder for the prey to escape.
Efficient abstracting of dive profiles using a broken-stick model
(2015-03) - Journal article,
For diving animals, animal-borne sensors are used to collect time-depth information for studying behaviour, ranging patterns and foraging ecology. Often, this information needs to be compressed for storage or transmission. ...
Evidence of land-sea transfer of the zoonotic pathogen Campylobacter to a wildlife marine sentinel species
(2015-01) - Journal article,
Environmental pollution often accompanies the expansion and urbanization of human populations where sewage and wastewaters commonly have an impact on the marine environments. Here, we explored the potential for faecal ...
Detectability in audio-visual surveys of tropical rainforest birds : the influence of species, weather and habitat characteristics
(2015-06-25) - Journal article,
Indices of relative abundance do not control for variation in detectability, which can bias density estimates such that ecological processes are difficult to infer. Distance sampling methods can be used to correct for ...
High site fidelity in Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe wintering in Africa revealed through colour marking
(2016) - Journal article,
Wintering Northern Wheatears Oenanthe oenanthe in the Sahel region of Northern Nigeria held small (c. 70 m diameter) distinct territories during the study period, and territory size did not differ between adult and first ...
