Can the benefits of physical seabed restoration justify the costs? An assessment of a disused aggregate extraction site off the Thames Estuary, UK (2013)
Journal Article
Cooper, K., Burdon, D., Atkins, J. P., Weiss, L., Somerfield, P., Elliott, M., …Vivian, C. (2013). Can the benefits of physical seabed restoration justify the costs? An assessment of a disused aggregate extraction site off the Thames Estuary, UK. Marine pollution bulletin, 75(1-2), 33-45. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2013.08.009

Physical and biological seabed impacts can persist long after the cessation of marine aggregate dredging. Whilst small-scale experimental studies have shown that it may be possible to mitigate such impacts, it is unclear whether the costs of restorat...

Do marine protected areas deliver flows of ecosystem services to support human welfare? (2013)
Journal Article
Potts, T., Burdon, D., Jackson, E., Atkins, J., Saunders, J., Hastings, E., & Langmead, O. (2014). Do marine protected areas deliver flows of ecosystem services to support human welfare?. Marine Policy, 44, 139-148. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpol.2013.08.011

This paper examines the potential relationships between the ecosystem services provided by the coastal and marine environment and the designation of marine protected areas. The hypothesis is that relationships exist between the provision of ecosystem... Read More about Do marine protected areas deliver flows of ecosystem services to support human welfare?.

The riddle of the sands: How population dynamics explains causes of high bivalve mortality (2013)
Journal Article
Callaway, R., Burdon, D., Deasey, A., Mazik, K., & Elliott, M. (2013). The riddle of the sands: How population dynamics explains causes of high bivalve mortality. The journal of applied ecology, 50(4), 1050-1059. https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2664.12114

Large-scale bivalve mortalities in estuarine and coastal habitats are a major environmental and economic concern. They may have obvious causes such as extremely cold winter temperatures, but in the absence of an apparent chain of cause and effect, a...
