Source Partitioning Using Stable Isotopes: Coping with Too Much Variation
Background Stable isotope analysis is increasingly being utilised across broad areas of ecology and biology. Key to much of this work is the use of mixing models to estimate the proportion of sourcesExpand

Comparing isotopic niche widths among and within communities: SIBER - Stable Isotope Bayesian Ellipses in R.
1. The use of stable isotope data to infer characteristics of community structure and niche width of community members has become increasingly common. Although these developments have providedExpand

Marine renewable energy: potential benefits to biodiversity? An urgent call for research
Summary 1. The evidence for anthropogenically induced climate change is overwhelming with the production of greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels being a key driver. In response, manyExpand

Individual responses of seabirds to commercial fisheries revealed using GPS tracking, stable isotopes and vessel monitoring systems
Summary 1. The large amount of discards produced by commercial fisheries can have major impacts on marine predator populations: this abundant food may increase populations of some scavengers or Expand

Contrasting trends in light pollution across Europe based on satellite observed night time lights
Since the 1970s nighttime satellite images of the Earth from space have provided a striking illustration of the extent of artificial light. Meanwhile, growing awareness of adverse impacts ofExpand

Erroneous behaviour of MixSIR, a recently published Bayesian isotope mixing model: a discussion of Moore & Semmens (2008).
The application of Bayesian methods to stable isotopic mixing problems, including inference of diet has the potential to revolutionise ecological research. Using simulated data we show that aExpand

A brief introduction to mixed effects modelling and multi-model inference in ecology
The use of linear mixed effects models (LMMs) is increasingly common in the analysis of biological data. Whilst LMMs offer a flexible approach to modelling a broad range of data types, ecologicalExpand

Common European birds are declining rapidly while less abundant species' numbers are rising.
Biodiversity is undergoing unprecedented global decline. Efforts to slow this rate have focused foremost on rarer species, which are at most risk of extinction. Less interest has been paid to moreExpand

Carry-over effects reveal reproductive costs in a long-distance migrant.
1. It has been known for some time that the consequences of 'decisions' made at one point in an animal's life may not always be borne immediately. For example, numerous studies have demonstrated theExpand

Biogeography of time partitioning in mammals
Significance The majority of mammal species are nocturnal, but many are diurnal (active during the day), crepuscular (active mostly during twilight), or cathemeral (active during hours of daylightExpand
