Sediment Ecology Research Group, Scottish Oceans Institute, University of St Andrews, East Sands, Fife, UK
BMC Ecol 11:7. 2011..This experimental design specifically addresses interactions between the selected climate change variables and any ecological consequences caused by changes in species composition or richness...
- Extinction and ecosystem function in the marine benthosMartin Solan
Oceanlab, University of Aberdeen, Main Street, Newburgh, Aberdeenshire, Scotland AB41 6AA
Science 306:1177-80. 2004..As a result, the particular cause of extinction and the order in which species are lost ultimately govern the ecosystem-level consequences of biodiversity loss...
- Consequences of a simulated rapid ocean acidification event for benthic ecosystem processes and functionsFiona Murray
Oceanlab, University of Aberdeen, Main Street, Newburgh, Aberdeenshire AB41 6AA, UK Electronic address
Mar Pollut Bull 73:435-42. 2013..This study indicated that rapid acidification events may not be lethal to benthic invertebrates, but may result in behavioural changes that could have longer-term implications for species survival, ecosystem structure and functioning. ..

Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences, Oceanlab, University of Aberdeen, Main Street, Newburgh, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, AB41 6AA, UK
Environ Res 111:635-42. 2011..Collectively, our analyses demonstrate that the fate of fish farm-derived wastes is complex and highlight the need for site-specific management techniques...

- The role of ecological theory in microbial ecologyJames I Prosser
School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen AB24 3UU, Scotland, UK
Nat Rev Microbiol 5:384-92. 2007..Here we argue that the full potential of the ongoing revolution will not be realized if research is not directed and driven by theory, and that the generality of established ecological theory must be tested using microbial systems...

- Influence of macrofaunal assemblages and environmental heterogeneity on microphytobenthic production in experimental systemsKirstie E Dyson
Gatty Marine Laboratory, University of St Andrews, Fife KY16 8LB, UK
Proc Biol Sci 274:2547-54. 2007..Our findings demonstrate that organic enrichment can cause the development of heterogeneity which influences infaunal bioturbation and consequent nutrient generation, a driver of microphytobenthic production...
