Rates of reverberative decay and frequency attenuation are measured within two Australian forests. In particular, their dependence on the distance between a source and receiver, and the relative heights of both, is examined. Distance is always the most influential of these factors. The structurally denser of the forests exhibits much slower reverberative(More)
Understanding the influence of the built environment on human movement requires quantifying spatial structure in a general sense. Because of the difficulty of this task, studies of movement dynamics often ignore spatial heterogeneity and treat movement through journey lengths or distances alone. This study analyses public bicycle data from central London to(More)
Many animals move in response to climatic variations, with responses of highly mobile species such as waterbirds being especially dynamic. Climatic patterns are commonly quantified through static aggregation of meteorological variables, yet static analyses may only poorly relate to dynamic ecological responses. A technique is developed here to examine(More)
Urban planners and ecologists have long debated the relationship between the structure of urban landscapes and social activities. There have, however, been very few discussions as to whether any such relationships might depend on the scales of observation. This work applies a hierarchical zoning technique to data from the city of Quito, Ecuador, to examine(More)
Planning of catchment-scale programs of stream restoration requires an ability to predict the combination of small-scale projects that will provide the greatest ecological benefit. However, we lack the tools to predict where within stream systems restoration should be undertaken to achieve maximum ecological benefit, or to quantify the cumulative effect of(More)
