From linear economy legacies to circular economy resources: Maximising the multifaceted values of legacy mineral wastes (2021)
Book Chapter
Mayes, W. M., Hull, S. L., & Gomes, H. I. (2021). From linear economy legacies to circular economy resources: Maximising the multifaceted values of legacy mineral wastes. In A. Stefanakis, & I. Nikolaou (Eds.), Circular Economy and Sustainability Volume 1: Management and Policy (409-431). Elsevier. https://doi.org/10.1016/b978-0-12-819817-9.00009-0

Extractive industries represent the first stage of our global cycles of production and consumption. Environmental legacies associated with mining and mineral processing to all environmental compartments (air, soil, water) are extensive, long-lived, a...

Patterns of abundance across geographical ranges as a predictor for responses to climate change: Evidence from UK rocky shores (2020)
Journal Article
Vye, S. R., Dickens, S., Adams, L., Bohn, K., Chenery, J., Dobson, N., …Burrows, M. T. (2020). Patterns of abundance across geographical ranges as a predictor for responses to climate change: Evidence from UK rocky shores. Diversity and Distributions, 26(10), 1357-1365. https://doi.org/10.1111/ddi.13118

Aim Understanding patterns in the abundance of species across thermal ranges can give useful insights into the potential impacts of climate change. The abundant‐centre hypothesis suggests that species will reach peak abundance at the centre of their...

Home-made fish traps reduce the capture of small shannies (Lipophrys pholis) compared to using hand-nets in the UK (2020)
Journal Article
Barrett, C. J., Johnson, M. L., & Hull, S. L. (2020). Home-made fish traps reduce the capture of small shannies (Lipophrys pholis) compared to using hand-nets in the UK. Conservation Evidence Journal, 17, 32-34

A replicated, controlled study in 2011-2012 found that using home-made fish traps reduced the capture of unwanted, small shannies Lipophrys pholis compared to using conventional hand-nets in intertidal habitats.

Ecological enhancement techniques to improve habitat heterogeneity on coastal defence structures (2018)
Journal Article
Hall, A. E., Herbert, R. J., Britton, J. R., & Hull, S. L. (2018). Ecological enhancement techniques to improve habitat heterogeneity on coastal defence structures. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 210, 68-78. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2018.05.025

Sea level rise and higher storm frequency are increasing the need for the placement of hard coastal defences worldwide. The majority of these defences lack optimal habitats for intertidal species, resulting in low diversity and abundance. The constru...

Can aggregate quarry silt lagoons provide resources for wading birds? (2017)
Journal Article
Day, G., Mayes, W. M., Wheeler, P. M., & Hull, S. L. (2017). Can aggregate quarry silt lagoons provide resources for wading birds?. Ecological engineering, 105, 189-197. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoleng.2017.04.055

Wading birds have declined across Europe as the intensification of lowland agriculture has resulted in the loss and degradation of wetland areas. Lowland aggregate extraction sites that incorporate areas of fine, waste sediments deposited in silt lag... Read More about Can aggregate quarry silt lagoons provide resources for wading birds?.

Population dynamics of two sympatric intertidal fish species (the shanny, Lipophrys pholis, and long-spined scorpion fish,Taurulus bubalis) of Great Britain (2016)
Journal Article
Barrett, C., Johnson, M., & Hull, S. (2018). Population dynamics of two sympatric intertidal fish species (the shanny, Lipophrys pholis, and long-spined scorpion fish,Taurulus bubalis) of Great Britain. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the UK, 98(3), 589-595. https://doi.org/10.1017/s0025315416001582

The shanny/common blenny (Lipophrys pholis) and long-spined scorpionfish/bullhead (Taurulus bubalis) are commonly encountered, sympatric species within much of Great Britain’s rocky intertidal zones. Despite being prey items of the cod (Gadus morhua)...

Diet as a mechanism of coexistence between intertidal fish species of the U.K. (2015)
Journal Article
Barrett, C. J., Johnson, M. L., & Hull, S. L. (2016). Diet as a mechanism of coexistence between intertidal fish species of the U.K. Hydrobiologia, 768(1), 125-135. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-015-2537-1

While the syntopic nature of many intertidal fish communities suggest that resources such as food are shared, little has been done to assess the importance of diet on the coexistence of intertidal fish of the U.K. In this study, six intertidal fish s...
