- Antarctic krill under sea ice: elevated abundance in a narrow band just south of ice edgeAndrew S Brierley
British Antarctic Survey, High Cross, Madingley Road, Cambridge CB3 0ET, UK
Science 295:1890-2. 2002..Autosub-2 enabled us to make continuous high-resolution measurements of krill density under ice reaching 27 kilometers beyond the ice edge...
- Ecology of southern ocean pack iceAndrew S Brierley
Gatty Marine Laboratory, School of Biology, University of St Andrews, Fife, KY16 8LB, UK
Adv Mar Biol 43:171-276. 2002..Data from such platforms will enhance greatly our understanding of the globally important Southern Ocean sea-ice ecosystem...
- Impacts of climate change on marine organisms and ecosystemsAndrew S Brierley
Pelagic Ecology Research Group, Gatty Marine Laboratory, School of Biology, University of St Andrews, Fife, KY16 8LB, Scotland, United Kingdom
Curr Biol 19:R602-14. 2009....
- Antarctic ecosystem: are deep krill ecological outliers or portents of a paradigm shift?Andrew S Brierley
University of St Andrews, Fife KY16 8LB, Scotland, UK
Curr Biol 18:R252-4. 2008..Serendipitous observations of Antarctic krill feeding at abyssal depths may revolutionise our view of the ecology of this supposed surface-dwelling animal that is key to the function of the Southern Ocean ecosystem...
- Shapes of krill swarms and fish schools emerge as aggregation members avoid predators and access oxygenAndrew S Brierley
Pelagic Ecology Research Group, Gatty Marine Laboratory, University of St Andrews, Fife KY16 8LB, Scotland, UK
Curr Biol 20:1758-62. 2010..Decreasing oxygen availability in a warming world ocean may impact shoal structure: because structure affects catchability by predators and fishers, understanding the response will be necessary for ecological and commercial reasons...
- Fisheries ecology: hunger for shark fin soup drives clam chowder off the menuAndrew S Brierley
Pelagic Ecology Research Group, Gatty Marine Laboratory, University of St Andrews, Fife, Scotland, UK
Curr Biol 17:R555-7. 2007..Removal by fishing of large sharks has reduced predation-pressure on shark prey and, via a trophic cascade, caused clam populations to crash. This indirect response illustrates why fisheries should be managed in a whole-ecosystem context...

Curr Biol 16:R492-3. 2006
- Scaling laws of marine predator search behaviourDavid W Sims
Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, The Laboratory, Citadel Hill, Plymouth PL1 2PB, UK
Nature 451:1098-102. 2008..This may explain why Lévy-like behaviour seems to be widespread among diverse organisms, from microbes to humans, as a 'rule' that evolved in response to patchy resource distributions...
