Gbm.auto: a software tool to simplify spatial modelling and marine protected area planning
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017-12-07)
Boosted Regression Trees. Excellent for data-poor spatial management but hard to use Marine resource managers and scientists often advocate spatial approaches to manage data-poor species. Existing spatial prediction and ...
The potential of parasitoid hymenoptera as bioindicators of arthropod diversity in agricultural grasslands
P&gt;1. As measuring biodiversity in its entirety is impractical, there is a need for bioindicators. This study tested the hypothesis that parasitoid Hymenoptera are potential bioindicators that provide a useful means ...
An unintended experiment in fisheries science: a marine area protected by war results in mexican waves in fish numbers-at-age
(Springer Nature, 2010-07-13)
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are attaining increasing importance in the management of marine ecosystems. They are effective for conservation in tropical and subtropical areas (mainly coral and rocky reefs), but it is ...
Interactions between livestock systems and biodiversity in south-east ireland
(Elsevier BV, 2010-10-15)
Spatial heterogeneity in fishing creates de facto refugia for endangered celtic sea elasmobranchs
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012-11-14)
The life history characteristics of some elasmobranchs make them particularly vulnerable to fishing mortality; about a third of all species are listed by the IUCN as Threatened or Near Threatened. Marine Protected Areas ...
Sea bass angling in ireland: a structural equation model of catch and effort
(Elsevier BV, 2018-07-01)
The relationship between angling effort and catch is well-recognised, in particular that effort influences catch rates. But increased catch, which can be considered an attribute of fishery quality, may influence effort in ...
Challenges in assessing ecological impacts of construction and demolition waste on wetlands: a case study
(Applied Ecology and Environmental Research, 2014-08-12)
Although wetlands are of ecological and economic importance, they continue to be lost to anthropogenic activities such as infilling. The impacts of wetland infilling with construction and demolition (C&D) waste on ...
Local-scale factors structure wild bee communities in protected areas
In the current context of global habitat loss, a fundamental challenge is to understand how ecological processes interact to determine community composition. Despite the accumulating evidence base for global declines in ...
