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...

Conference Proceeding
Jaques, R. O., Moorhouse-Parry, A. M. L., Carline, R., Mayes, W. M., & Hull, S. L. (2021). Biodiversity benefits of coal mine water remediation schemes for bird life. In Proceedings of the IMWA Congress “Mine Water Management for Future Generations”. Editors: Peter Stanley, Christian Wolkersdorfer, Karoline Wolkersdorfer

Lagoons and reedbeds are established components of mine water treatment systems for iron-rich coal mine drainage. This study coupled modified British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) Breeding Bird Survey monitoring with habitat survey to assess the presen...

Understanding community diversity on coastal defences : the role of key drivers and ecological enhancements (2020)
Thesis
Hobbs, C. I. (2020). Understanding community diversity on coastal defences : the role of key drivers and ecological enhancements. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4223641

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...

An evaluation of the temporal changes, distribution and abundance of the UK overwintering population of pink-footed geese (Anser brachyrhynchus) and an assessment of the North Norfolk population wintering foraging ranges (2020)
Thesis
Stone, J. M. (2020). An evaluation of the temporal changes, distribution and abundance of the UK overwintering population of pink-footed geese (Anser brachyrhynchus) and an assessment of the North Norfolk population wintering foraging ranges. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4223332

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...

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?.

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)...
