Otolith chemoscape analysis in whiting links fishing grounds to nursery areas (2020)
Journal Article
Burns, N. M., Hopkins, C. R., Bailey, D. M., & Wright, P. J. (2020). Otolith chemoscape analysis in whiting links fishing grounds to nursery areas. Communications Biology, 3(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s42003-020-01433-y

Understanding life stage connectivity is essential to define appropriate spatial scales for fisheries management and develop effective strategies to reduce undersized bycatch. Despite many studies of population structure and connectivity in marine fi... Read More about Otolith chemoscape analysis in whiting links fishing grounds to nursery areas.

Evaluating whether MPA management measures meet ecological principles for effective biodiversity protection (2020)
Journal Article
Hopkins, C. R., Burns, N. M., Bailey, D. M., Hopkins, C., Burns, N., Brooker, E., …Bailey, D. (2020). Evaluating whether MPA management measures meet ecological principles for effective biodiversity protection. Acta Oecologica, 108, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2020.103625

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) have been implemented as a spatial management tool throughout the world in order to meet targets for marine biodiversity conservation. The success of MPAs in achieving biodiversity conservation objectives is strongly dep...

A new model study species: high accuracy of discrimination between individual freckled hawkfish (Paracirrhites forsteri) using natural markings (2020)
Journal Article
McInnes, M. G., Burns, N. M., Henderson, G. P., McNeill, D. C., Bailey, D. M., Mcinnes, M. G., …Bailey, D. M. (2020). A new model study species: high accuracy of discrimination between individual freckled hawkfish (Paracirrhites forsteri) using natural markings. Journal of fish biology, 96(3), 831-834. https://doi.org/10.1111/jfb.14255

Variations between distinct natural markings of freckled hawkfish (Paracirrhites forsteri) could allow in situ identification of individuals from underwater photography. Receiver operating characteristic analysis was used to assess the ability of the...
