  • Modeling the aggregated exposure and responses of bowhead whales Balaena mysticetus to multiple sources of anthropogenic underwater sound 

    Ellison, William T.; Racca, Roberto; Clark, Christopher W.; Streever, Bill; Frankel, Adam S.; Fleishman, Erica; Angliss, Robyn; Berger, Joel; Ketten, Darlene; Guerra, Melania; Leu, Matthias; McKenna, Megan; Sformo, Todd; Southall, Brandon; Suydam, Robert; Thomas, Len (2016-05-02) - Journal article
    Potential responses of marine mammals to anthropogenic underwater sound are usually assessed by researchers and regulators on the basis of exposure to a single, relatively loud sound source. However, marine mammals typically ...
  • Ends of semigroups 

    Craik, S.; Gray, R.; Kilibarda, V.; Mitchell, J. D.; Ruskuc, N. (2016-07-27) - Journal article
    We define the notion of the partial order of ends of the Cayley graph of a semigroup. We prove that the structure of the ends of a semigroup is invariant under change of finite generating set and at the same time is inherited ...
  • Automorphism groups of countable algebraically closed graphs and endomorphisms of the random graph 

    Dolinka, Igor; Gray, Robert Duncan; McPhee, Jillian Dawn; Mitchell, James David; Quick, Martyn (2016-05) - Journal article
    We establish links between countable algebraically closed graphs and the endomorphisms of the countable universal graph R. As a consequence we show that, for any countable graph Γ, there are uncountably many maximal subgroups ...
  • Nest-building males trade off material collection costs with territory value 

    Bailey, Ida E.; Morgan, Kate V.; Oschadleus, H. Dieter; DeRuiter, Stacy L.; Meddle, Simone L.; Healy, Susan D. (2016-01-25) - Journal article
    Building a structurally robust nest is crucial for reproductive success in many birds. However, we know little about the criteria birds use to select material or where they go to collect it. Here we observed the material ...
  • Flexible density surface estimation for spatially explicit capture-recapture surveys 

    Borchers, David Louis; Kidney, Darren (University of St Andrews, 2014-07-01) - Report
    1. Existing spatially explicit capture-recapture (SECR) software does not have the ability to fit flexible nonparametric models of animal density. 2. We describe and implement in the R package secrgam, a flexible method ...
