The Australian National Windbreaks Program: overview and summary of results
This overview paper presents a description of the National Windbreaks Program (NWP) — its objectives, the main methods used to achieve these objectives and a summary of the key results. It draws… Expand

The impact of underwater noise on marine life calls for identification of exposure criteria to inform mitigation. Here we review recent experimental evidence with focus on the high-frequency… Expand
Competitive outreach in the 21st century: Why we need conservation marketing
Abstract Addressing impacts from human activities requires the change of current practices. However, reaching a target audience about conservation issues and influencing their behaviour is not easy… Expand

Cetacean mass stranding events associated with naval mid-frequency sonar use have raised considerable conservation concerns. These strandings have mostly involved beaked whales, with common… Expand
Size matters: management of stress responses and chronic stress in beaked whales and other marine mammals may require larger exclusion zones.
Marine mammal management traditionally focuses on lethal takes, but non-lethal (or not immediately lethal) impacts of human disturbance, such as prolonged or repeated activation of the stress… Expand
Methods for estimating gene numbers for quantitative characters using doubled haploid lines
SummaryThree methods of estimating the numbers of genes segregating for quantitative characters using doubled haploid lines are presented. The first uses estimates of the range and genetical variance… Expand
JNCC guidelines for minimising the risk of injury and disturbance to marine mammals from seismic surveys: We can do better.
The U.K.'s Joint Nature Conservation Committee 1998 guidelines for minimising acoustic impacts from seismic surveys on marine mammals were the first of their kind. Covering both planning and… Expand
Ten guiding principles for the delineation of priority habitat for endangered small cetaceans
The adoption of endangered species laws in various nations has intensified efforts to better understand, and protect, at-risk species or populations, and their habitats. In many countries,… Expand

SummaryA simple recurrent selection scheme using randomly constructed intercrop or mixture treatments for the mutual improvement of two or more species is described. Several possible selection… Expand
Unintended consequences of sustainable architecture: Evaluating overheating risks in new dwellings
Governmental strategies to reduce heating demand from dwellings have led to a range of problems relating to ventilation and occupant comfort. In fact, growing evidence of uncomfortably warm homes has… Expand
