The thin(ning) green line? Investigating changes in Kenya's seagrass coverage

Journal Article
Harcourt, W. D., Briers, R. A., & Huxham, M. (2018)
The thin(ning) green line? Investigating changes in Kenya's seagrass coverage. Biology Letters, 14(11), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsbl.2018.0227
Knowledge of seagrass distribution is limited to a few well-studied sites and poor where resourcesare scant (e.g. Africa), hence global estimates of seagrass carbon storage ar...

Developing an empirical approach to optimal camera-trap deployment at mammal resting sites: evidence from a longitudinal study of an otter Lutra lutra holt

Journal Article
Findlay, M., Briers, R., Diamond, N., & White, P. (2017)
Developing an empirical approach to optimal camera-trap deployment at mammal resting sites: evidence from a longitudinal study of an otter Lutra lutra holt. European journal of wildlife research, 63(6),
The study of nocturnal mammals relies on indirect evidence or invasive methods involving capture and tagging of individuals. Indirect methods are prone to error, while capture...

Aquatic insects: challenges to populations

Book
J. Lancaster, & R. A. Briers (Eds.), (2007)
Aquatic insects: challenges to populations. doi:10.1079/9781845933968.0000
This book considers some of the potential influences on individuals and populations (e.g. environmental stresses, parasites, cannibalism, dispersal limitations), the 'cunning ...

Riparian forestry management and adult stream insects

Journal Article
Briers, R. A., & Gee, J. H. R. (2004)
Riparian forestry management and adult stream insects. Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, 8(3), 545-549. https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-8-545-2004
The impacts of coniferous plantation forestry on the biology of upland streams in the UK are firmly established. Whilst benthic communities have been well studied, very little...

Range limits and parasite prevalence in a freshwater snail

Journal Article
Briers, R. A. (2003)
Range limits and parasite prevalence in a freshwater snail. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 270(Suppl_2), S178-S180. https://doi.org/10.1098/rsbl.2003.0046
Geographical range limits are thought to be set by species' physiological or ecological adaptation to abiotic factors, but the importance of biotic factors such as parasitism ...

Incorporating spatial criteria into optimal reserve network selection.

Journal Article
Onal, H. & Briers, R. A. (2002)
Incorporating spatial criteria into optimal reserve network selection. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. 269, 2437-2441. doi:10.1098/rspb.2002.2183. ISSN 0962-8452
Considering the spatial location of sites that are to be selected for inclusion in a protected reserve network may be necessary to facilitate dispersal and long-term persisten...

Incorporating connectivity into reserve selection procedures.

Journal Article
Briers, R. A. (2002)
Incorporating connectivity into reserve selection procedures. Biological Conservation. 103, 77-83. doi:10.1016/S0006-3207(01)00123-9. ISSN 0006-3207
Methods for selecting sites to be included in reserve networks generally neglect the spatial location of sites, often resulting in highly fragmented networks. This restricts t...
