Journal Article
Macgregor, C. J., & Scott-Brown, A. S. (in press). Nocturnal pollination: an overlooked ecosystem service vulnerable to environmental change. Emerging Topics in Life Sciences, https://doi.org/10.1042/etls20190134

Existing assessments of the ecosystem service of pollination have been largely restricted to diurnal insects, with a particular focus on generalist foragers such as wild and honey bees. As knowledge of how these plant-pollinator systems function, the... Read More about Nocturnal pollination: an overlooked ecosystem service vulnerable to environmental change.

Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding of pond water as a tool to survey conservation and management priority mammals (2019)
Journal Article
Ghazali, M., Harper, L. R., Lawson Handley, L., Carpenter, A. I., Murray-Dickson, G., Di Muri, C., …Hänfling, B. (2019). Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding of pond water as a tool to survey conservation and management priority mammals. Biological Conservation, 238(October 2019), https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2019.108225

© 2019 Elsevier Ltd Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding can identify terrestrial taxa utilising aquatic habitats alongside aquatic communities, but terrestrial species' eDNA dynamics are understudied. We evaluated eDNA metabarcoding for monitoring... Read More about Environmental DNA (eDNA) metabarcoding of pond water as a tool to survey conservation and management priority mammals.

Construction, validation, and application of nocturnal pollen transport networks in an agro-ecosystem: a comparison using light microscopy and DNA metabarcoding (2018)
Journal Article
Macgregor, C. J., Kitson, J. J., Fox, R., Hahn, C., Lunt, D. H., Pocock, M. J., & Evans, D. M. (2019). Construction, validation, and application of nocturnal pollen transport networks in an agro-ecosystem: a comparison using light microscopy and DNA metabarcoding. Ecological entomology, 44(1), 17-29. doi:10.1111/een.12674

1. Moths are globally relevant as pollinators but nocturnal pollination remains poorly understood. Plant–pollinator interaction networks are traditionally constructed using either flower‐visitor observations or pollen‐transport detection using micros...

Pollination by nocturnal Lepidoptera, and the effects of light pollution: A review (2014)
Journal Article
Macgregor, C. J., Pocock, M. J. O., Fox, R., & Evans, D. M. (2015). Pollination by nocturnal Lepidoptera, and the effects of light pollution: A review. Ecological entomology, 40(3), 187-198. https://doi.org/10.1111/een.12174

1. Moths (Lepidoptera) are the major nocturnal pollinators of flowers. However, their importance and contribution to the provision of pollination ecosystem services may have been under-appreciated. Evidence was identified that moths are important pol... Read More about Pollination by nocturnal Lepidoptera, and the effects of light pollution: A review.
