Patterns of abundance across geographical ranges as a predictor for responses to climate change: Evidence from UK rocky shores (2020)
Journal Article
Vye, S. R., Dickens, S., Adams, L., Bohn, K., Chenery, J., Dobson, N., …Burrows, M. T. (2020). Patterns of abundance across geographical ranges as a predictor for responses to climate change: Evidence from UK rocky shores. Diversity and Distributions, 26(10), 1357-1365. https://doi.org/10.1111/ddi.13118

Aim Understanding patterns in the abundance of species across thermal ranges can give useful insights into the potential impacts of climate change. The abundant‐centre hypothesis suggests that species will reach peak abundance at the centre of their...

Insights into the morphology of symbiotic shrimp eyes (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae); the effects of habitat demands (2016)
Journal Article
Dobson, N. C., Johnson, M. L., & De Grave, S. (2016). Insights into the morphology of symbiotic shrimp eyes (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae); the effects of habitat demands. PeerJ, 2016(4), https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.1926

Morphometric differences in the optical morphology of symbiotic palaemonid shrimps can be observed among species symbiotic with different host organisms. Discriminant functional analysis revealed three distinct groups within the species examined. Of...

External morphology of eyes and Nebenaugen of caridean decapods–ecological and systematic considerations (2015)
Journal Article
Johnson, M. L., Dobson, N., & De Grave, S. (2015). External morphology of eyes and Nebenaugen of caridean decapods–ecological and systematic considerations. PeerJ, 3(8), e1176. https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.1176

Most caridean decapods have compound eyes of the reflecting superposition kind, and additionally some possess an accessory eye-like organ of unknown function, also referred to as the nebenauge.We examined 308 caridean genera to assess the general mor...

Linking eye design with host symbiont relationships in pontoniine shrimps (crustacea, decapoda, palaemonidae) (2014)
Journal Article
Dobson, N. C., De Grave, S., & Johnson, M. L. (2014). Linking eye design with host symbiont relationships in pontoniine shrimps (crustacea, decapoda, palaemonidae). PLoS ONE, 9(6), e99505. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0099505

Symbiosis is prevalent in the marine environment with many studies examining the effects of such interactions between host and symbiont. Pontoniine shrimps are a group whose ecology is characterised by symbiotic interactions. This investigation exami...

Nephrops Fisheries in European Waters (2013)
Book Chapter
Ungfors, A., Bell, E., Johnson, M. L., Cowing, D., Dobson, N. C., Bublitz, R., & Sandell, J. (2013). Nephrops Fisheries in European Waters. In The Ecology and Biology of Nephrops norvegicus (247-314). Elsevier. https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-410466-2.00007-8

This review focuses on the Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) as a resource, describing how the fishery has developed from the 1960s to the present day to become one of the most economically important fisheries in Europe. In 2010, the total landing... Read More about Nephrops Fisheries in European Waters.
