Evidence-based marine protected area planning for a highly mobile endangered marine vertebrate
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) now form an important part of marine conservation and fisheries management; hence, there is broad interest in developing procedures that optimize their design. We usedExpand
Global patterns for upper ceilings on migration distance in sea turtles and comparisons with fish, birds and mammals
The results highlight the important roles migration periodicity and foraging mode can play in driving the longest migrations, and the implications for Marine Protected Area planning are considered in terms of sea turtle conservation. Expand
Life in the really slow lane: loggerhead sea turtles mature late relative to other reptiles
It is shown that loggerhead turtles, along with other large-bodied Testudine (turtle and tortoise) species, take longer to reach maturity than other reptile species of comparable sizes, which heightens concern over the future sustainability of turtle populations. Expand
Ontogeny of long distance migration
It is shown that the migration routes of adult turtles are strongly related to hatchling drift patterns, implying that adult migration goals are learned through their past experiences dispersing with ocean currents. Expand
A little movement orientated to the geomagnetic field makes a big difference in strong flows
It is shown that even small animals in strong flows can benefit from geomagnetic orientation and thus the potential implications of directional swimming for other taxa may be broad. Expand
Global analysis of satellite tracking data shows that adult green turtles are significantly aggregated in Marine Protected Areas
Aim Tracking technologies are often proposed as a method to elucidate the complex migratory life histories of migratory marine vertebrates, allowing spatially explicit threats to be identified andExpand
Nano-tags for neonates and ocean-mediated swimming behaviours linked to rapid dispersal of hatchling sea turtles
The novel use of acoustic nano-tags on neonate loggerhead turtle hatchlings enabled us to witness first-hand their dispersal and behaviour during their first day at sea and highlighted a positive correlation between swimming activity levels and body size and population-specific swimming behaviours.

Chronology of the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic in NW Europe: developer-funded investigations at Dunbridge, Hampshire, southern England
This paper reports important findings relating to the chronology of Palaeolithic occupation, artefact typology and Quaternary fluvial deposits from a geoarchaeological watching brief undertaken overExpand
The Early Middle Palaeolithic of Britain : origins, technology and landscape
This thesis examines technological behaviour during the early British Middle Palaeolithic (Late OIS 9-7), as reflected by lithic artefacts. The British data-set, whilst containing few high-resolutionExpand
Natal site and offshore swimming influence fitness and long-distance ocean transport in young sea turtles
Offshore swimming aided newly hatched turtles in moving past fronts and increased turtles’ probability of survival, reaching distant foraging grounds, and encountering favorable temperatures, and swimming was most beneficial in regions that were more favorable under scenarios assuming passive drift.
