Microplastic is a marine pollutant of global concern which has managed to penetrate remote regions. This thesis describes the first comprehensive assessment of microplastics in the nearshore environment of South Georgia, an island in the s...

Coastal defences have become prevalent in the marine environment in response to rising sea levels and increasingly frequent coastal storms. However, due to insufficient habitat heterogeneity and physical complexity such structures support lower biodi...

Pink-footed geese (Anser brachyrhynchus) is a high arctic breeder, breeding in Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. There are two distinct sub-populations, both of which migrate and winter in North West Europe. The largest of these populations’ breeds in...

The role of macroalgal morphology and community structure on the accumulation of sediment and the subsequent effects on the dynamics of marine intertidal communities (2009)

This study examines the influence of intertidal macroalgae on sediment accumulation, and the effect of sediment cover on intertidal community structure. Three shores on the North Yorkshire coast, England, were used to investigate differences in th...
