Nuclear power and coastal birds: Predicting the ecological consequences of warm-water outflows (2016)
Journal Article
Forster, R. M., Bremner, J., Garcia, C., Silva, T., & Stillman, R. A. (2016). Nuclear power and coastal birds: Predicting the ecological consequences of warm-water outflows. Ecological Modelling, 342, (60-81). doi:10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2016.09.017. ISSN 0304-3800

Local alteration of species abundance in natural communities due to anthropogenic impacts may have secondary, cascading effects on species at higher trophic levels. Such effects are typically hard to single out due to their ubiquitous nature and, the... Read More

Decrease in water clarity of the southern and central North Sea during the 20th century (2015)
Journal Article
Forster, R. M., Barry, J., Capuzzo, E., Silva, T., & Stephens, D. (2015). Decrease in water clarity of the southern and central North Sea during the 20th century. Global change biology, 21(6), 2206-2214. doi:10.1111/gcb.12854

Light in the marine environment is a key environmental variable coupling physics to marine biogeochemistry and ecology. Weak light penetration reduces light available for photosynthesis, changing energy fluxes through the marine food web. Based on pu... Read More

Framework for understanding marine ecosystem health (2013)
Journal Article
