The first use of Fulton's K for assessing and comparing the conditions of inter-tidal fish populations (2014)
Journal Article
Barrett, C. J., Johnson, M., Hall, N. J., & Hull, S. (2016). The first use of Fulton's K for assessing and comparing the conditions of inter-tidal fish populations. Marine Ecology, 37(1), 42-45. https://doi.org/10.1111/maec.12234

Fulton's K condition factor was applied, for the first time, to inter-tidal specimens of the shanny (Lipophrys pholis) and long-spined scorpion fish (Taurulus bubalis) from two English rocky shore and two Welsh rocky shore sites during summer 2010 an...

Rapid recovery of benthic invertebrates downstream of hyperalkaline steel slag discharges (2014)
Journal Article

This study assesses the physical and chemical characteristics of hyperalkaline steel slag leachate from a former steelworks on two streams in England and their impacts on benthic invertebrate communities. Using multivariate methods (CCA), we related... Read More about Rapid recovery of benthic invertebrates downstream of hyperalkaline steel slag discharges.

Cliff top habitats provide important alternative feeding resources for wading birds of conservation importance wintering on non-estuarine coasts (2014)
Journal Article
Furnell, J., & Hull, S. L. (2014). Cliff top habitats provide important alternative feeding resources for wading birds of conservation importance wintering on non-estuarine coasts. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 139, 119-126. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2013.12.029

Rocky shores and beaches are important over-wintering areas for non-estuarine waders but have rarely been studied. We examined cliff top habitat use by 6 species of wader over 75 km of coast to assess their potential value as alternative feeding site...
