- 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...

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...
