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

Facilitating permeability of landscapes impacted by roads for protected amphibians: patterns of movement for the great crested newt (2017)
Journal Article
Matos, C., Petrovan, S., Ward, A. I., & Wheeler, P. (2017). Facilitating permeability of landscapes impacted by roads for protected amphibians: patterns of movement for the great crested newt. PeerJ, 2017(2), e2922. https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.2922

Amphibian populations are highly vulnerable to road mortality and habitat fragmentation caused by road networks. Wildlife road tunnels are considered the most promising road mitigation measure for amphibians yet generally remain inadequately monitore... Read More

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... Read More
