  • The challenges of analyzing behavioral response study data : an overview of the MOCHA (Multi-study OCean acoustics Human effects Analysis) project 

    Harris, Catriona M; Thomas, Len; Sadykova, Dinara; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Southall, Brandon L.; Read, Andrew J.; Miller, Patrick (Springer Science and Business Media, 2016) - Conference item
    This paper describes the MOCHA project which aims to develop novel approaches for the analysis of data collected during Behavioral Response Studies (BRSs). BRSs are experiments aimed at directly quantifying the effects of ...
  • Counting chirps: acoustic monitoring of cryptic frogs 

    Measey, G. John; Stevenson, Ben C.; Scott, Tanya; Altwegg, Res; Borchers, David L. (2016-12-01) - Journal article
    1 .  Global amphibian declines have resulted in a vital need for monitoring programmes that follow population trends. Monitoring using advertisement calls is ideal as choruses are undisturbed during data collection. However, ...
  • Re-evaluation of individual diameter : height allometric models to improve biomass estimation of tropical trees 

    Ledo, Alicia; Cornulier, Thomas; Illian, Janine B.; Iida, Yoshiko; Kassim, Abdul Rahman; Burslem, David F. R. P. (2016-09-26) - Journal article
    Accurate estimation of tree biomass is necessary to provide realistic values of the carbon stored in the terrestrial biosphere. A recognized source of errors in tree above-ground biomass (AGB) estimation is introduced when ...
  • Distance sampling detection functions : 2D or not 2D? 

    Borchers, David Louis; Cox, Martin James (2016-10-17) - Journal article
    Conventional distance sampling (CDS) methods assume that animals are uniformly distributed in the vicinity of lines or points. But when animals move in response to observers before detection, or when lines or points are ...
  • A comparison of global magnetic field skeletons and active-region upflows 

    Edwards, S. J.; Parnell, C. E.; Harra, L. K.; Culhane, J. L.; Brooks, D. H. (2016-01-01) - Journal article
    Plasma upflows have been detected in active regions using Doppler velocity maps. The origin and nature of these upflows is not well known with many of their characteristics determined from the examination of single events. ...
