Improving daytime detection of deer for surveillance and management (2019)
Journal Article
Logan, T. W., Ashton-Butt, A., & Ward, A. I. (2019). Improving daytime detection of deer for surveillance and management. European Journal of Wildlife Research, 65(6), https://doi.org/10.1007/s10344-019-1318-y

Maximising the detection of a target species reduces the uncertainty of survey results and can improve management outcomes. Deer (Cervidae) populations are managed worldwide due to their impacts on anthropocentric interests. In the UK, deer can only...

Landscape connectivity and spatial prioritization in an urbanising world: a network analysis approach for a threatened amphibian (2019)
Journal Article
Matos, C., Petrovan, S. O., Wheeler, P. M., & Ward, A. I. (2019). Landscape connectivity and spatial prioritization in an urbanising world: a network analysis approach for a threatened amphibian. Biological Conservation, 237, 238-247. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2019.06.035

Habitat fragmentation affects amphibian populations worldwide. Urban expansion and associated infrastructure are a main cause of habitat degradation and loss of landscape-scale habitat connectivity. Mitigation measures such as underpasses and associa...

Modeling current and potential distributions of mammal species using presence‐only data: a case study on British deer (2019)
Journal Article
Croft, S., Ward, A. I., Aegerter, J. N., & Smith, G. C. (2019). Modeling current and potential distributions of mammal species using presence‐only data: a case study on British deer. Ecology and Evolution, https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.5424

Aim: Decisions on wildlife conservation, management, and epidemiological risk are best based on robust evidence. The continual improvement of species distributions, such that they can be relied upon in decision‐making, is important. Here we seek to r...

Short-term movements and behaviour govern the use of road mitigation measures by a protected amphibian (2018)
Journal Article
Matos, C., Petrovan, S., Wheeler, P., & Ward, A. (2019). Short-term movements and behaviour govern the use of road mitigation measures by a protected amphibian. Animal Conservation, 22(3), 285-296. https://doi.org/10.1111/acv.12467

Road mitigation infrastructure for pond-breeding amphibians aims to provide a safe and sustainable passage for individuals between critical habitat patches. However, relatively little is known about how amphibians interact with mitigation systems bec...

Facilitating permeability of landscapes impacted by roads for protected amphibians: patterns of movement for the great crested newt (2017)
Journal Article
Matos, C., Petrovan, S., Ward, A. I., & Wheeler, P. (2017). Facilitating permeability of landscapes impacted by roads for protected amphibians: patterns of movement for the great crested newt. PeerJ, 2017(2), e2922. https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.2922

Amphibian populations are highly vulnerable to road mortality and habitat fragmentation caused by road networks. Wildlife road tunnels are considered the most promising road mitigation measure for amphibians yet generally remain inadequately monitore...
