A problem structuring method for ecosystem-based management : the DPSIR modelling process (2012)
Journal Article
Gregory, A. J., Atkins, J. P., Burdon, D., & Elliott, M. (2018). A problem structuring method for ecosystem-based management : the DPSIR modelling process. European journal of operational research, 227(3), 558-569. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejor.2012.11.020

The purpose of this paper is to learn from Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) theory to inform the development of Problem Structuring Methods (PSMs) both in general and in the specific context of marine management. The focus on marine management is impor... Read More

Sensitivity analysis to explore responsiveness and dynamic range of multi-metric fish-based indices for assessing the ecological status of estuaries and lagoons (2012)
Journal Article
Alvarez, M. C., Franco, A., Pérez-Domínguez, R., & Elliott, M. (2013). Sensitivity analysis to explore responsiveness and dynamic range of multi-metric fish-based indices for assessing the ecological status of estuaries and lagoons. Hydrobiologia, 704(1), 347-362. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-012-1314-7

Fish-based multi-metric indices are an integral tool in implementing effective water policy initiatives for transitional waters. This study analysed the behaviour of three fish indices (TFCI in the UK, ELFI in France and EFAI in Portugal) developed f... Read More

Current developments on fish-based indices to assess ecological-quality status of estuaries and lagoons (2012)
Journal Article
Pérez-Domínguez, R., Maci, S., Courrat, A., Lepage, M., Borja, A., Uriarte, A., …Elliott, M. (2012). Current developments on fish-based indices to assess ecological-quality status of estuaries and lagoons. Ecological Indicators, 23, 34-45. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolind.2012.03.006

Estuaries and lagoons are especially affected by anthropogenic pressures. This has resulted in symptoms of degradation including water quality impairment and loss of aquatic biota. Protection of aquatic biodiversity and management of these coastal sy... Read More
