Modeling current and potential distributions of mammal species using presence‐only data: a case study on British deer (2019)
Journal Article
Croft, S., Ward, A. I., Aegerter, J. N., & Smith, G. C. (2019). Modeling current and potential distributions of mammal species using presence‐only data: a case study on British deer. Ecology and Evolution, https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.5424

Aim: Decisions on wildlife conservation, management, and epidemiological risk are best based on robust evidence. The continual improvement of species distributions, such that they can be relied upon in decision‐making, is important. Here we seek to r...

Dietary niche partitioning between sympatric brown hares and rabbits (2017)
Journal Article
Lush, L., Ward, A. I., & Wheeler, P. (2017). Dietary niche partitioning between sympatric brown hares and rabbits. Journal of Zoology, 303(1), 36-45. https://doi.org/10.1111/jzo.12461

© 2017 The Zoological Society of London Coexistence of ecologically similar species is sustained by niche partitioning, a fundamental element of which is diet. Overlapping of resource requirements between sympatric species can create interspecific co... Read More about Dietary niche partitioning between sympatric brown hares and rabbits.

Quantifying the bias in density estimated from distance sampling and camera trapping of unmarked individuals (2017)
Journal Article
Chauvenet, A. L., Gill, R. M., Smith, G. C., Ward, A. I., & Massei, G. (2017). Quantifying the bias in density estimated from distance sampling and camera trapping of unmarked individuals. Ecological Modelling, 350, 79-86. doi:10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2017.02.007

Population size estimates are an integral part of any species conservation or management project. They are often used to evaluate the impact of management intervention and can be critical for making decisions for future management. Distance sampling...

Use of tri-axial accelerometers to assess terrestrial mammal behaviour in the wild (2015)
Journal Article
Lush, L., Ellwood, S., Markham, A., Ward, A. I., & Wheeler, P. (2016). Use of tri-axial accelerometers to assess terrestrial mammal behaviour in the wild. Journal of Zoology, 298(4), 257-265. doi:10.1111/jzo.12308

Tri‐axial accelerometer tags provide quantitative data on body movement that can be used to characterize behaviour and understand species ecology in ways that would otherwise be impossible. Using tags on wild terrestrial mammals, especially smaller s... Read More about Use of tri-axial accelerometers to assess terrestrial mammal behaviour in the wild.
