How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Acoustic deterrents have shown potential as a viable mitigation measure to reduce human impacts on bats, however, the mechanisms underpinning acoustic deterrence of bats have yet to be explored. Bats avoid ambient ultrasound in their environment and alter their echolocation calls in response to masking noise. Using stereo thermal videogrammetry and...
Where humans and wildlife co-exist, mitigation is often needed to alleviate potential conflicts and impacts. Deterrence methods can be used to reduce impacts of human structures or activities on wildlife, or to resolve conservation conflicts in areas where animals may be regarded as a nuisance or pose a health hazard. Here we test two methods (acou...
I investigate tools for studying bat species’ assemblages in woodlands, at varying spatial scales; including species distribution modelling (MaxEnt) for Myotis bechsteinii in Britain at a broad-scale, and an investigation into the use of an acoustic lure (the Sussex AutoBat) as a method for increasing capture rates of bats in woodlands at a local s...
