Host movement dominates the predicted effects of climate change on parasite transmission between wild and domestic mountain ungulates (2024)
Journal Article
Dickinson, E. R., McFarland, C., Toïgo, C., Scantlebury, D. M., Stephens, P. A., Marks, N. J., & Morgan, E. R. (2024). Host movement dominates the predicted effects of climate change on parasite transmission between wild and domestic mountain ungulates. Royal Society Open Science, 11(1), Article 230469. https://doi.org/10.1098/rsos.230469

Climate change is shifting the transmission of parasites, which is determined by host density, ambient temperature and moisture. These shifts can lead to increased pressure from parasites, in wild and domestic animals, and can impact the effectivenes...

Kinship study reveals stable non-kin-based associations in a medium-sized delphinid (2023)
Journal Article
Hartman, K. L., Chen, I., van der Harst, P. A., Moura, A. E., Jahnke, M., Pilot, M., …Hoelzel, A. R. (2023). Kinship study reveals stable non-kin-based associations in a medium-sized delphinid. Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, 77(12), Article 137. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00265-023-03411-w

Delphinids display a wide variety of social structures, in which local food availability and defensibility, sexual size dimorphism and interbirth intervals ultimately influence the role of kin within social units. Earlier studies of the social ecolog... Read More about Kinship study reveals stable non-kin-based associations in a medium-sized delphinid.

Explaining and predicting animal migration under global change (2023)
Journal Article
Howard, C., Mason, T. H. E., Baillie, S. R., Border, J., Hewson, C. M., Houston, A. I., …Stephens, P. A. (2023). Explaining and predicting animal migration under global change. Diversity and Distributions, https://doi.org/10.1111/ddi.13797

Many migratory species are declining due to global environmental change. Yet, their complex annual cycles make unravelling the impacts of potential drivers such as climate and land-use change on migrations a major challenge. Identifying where, when a...

Widespread southern elephant seal occupation of the Victoria land coast implies a warmer-than-present Ross Sea in the mid-to-late Holocene (2023)
Journal Article
Hall, B. L., Koch, P. L., Baroni, C., Salvatore, M. C., Hoelzel, A. R., de Bruyn, M., & Welch, A. J. (2023). Widespread southern elephant seal occupation of the Victoria land coast implies a warmer-than-present Ross Sea in the mid-to-late Holocene. Quaternary Science Reviews, 303, Article 107991. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.quascirev.2023.107991

Prediction of future ice-sheet behavior in Antarctica and its contribution to sea-level rise depends on accurate understanding of ice-sheet response to a warm climate. Examination of how the ice sheet reacted to past warm episodes affords a means of...
