Dierschke, V., Furness, R.W., Gray, C.E., Petersen, I.K., Schmutz, J., Zydelis, R & Daunt, F.
This report comprises the main points of discussion and agreement during a workshop, held in Edinburgh in May 2017, to discuss how displacement might affect individuals and the Red-throated diver population; with additional information added by the scientists following the workshop.
 
Coppack, T., Searle, K., Butler, A., Daunt, F., Dirksen, S., Petersen, I-K., Rehfisch, M. & Buisson, R.
The aim of this report is to assess the feasibility and levels of stakeholder interest in undertaking a meta-analysis of data on displacement of red-throated divers Gavia stellata by offshore wind farms.
 
Jones, E.L., Smout, S., Russell, D.J.F., Pinn, E.H. & McConnell, B.J.
This report describes an analytical approach used to estimate synoptic UK harbour seal at-sea usage, based on telemetry-derived movement data and on terrestrial haul-out surveys. An example of ongoing studies into the identification of harbour seal foraging areas is presented for The Wash.
 
Peckett, F.J., Eassom, A., Church, N.J., Johnson, G.E. & Robson, L.M.
A prioritisation exercise was undertaken by JNCC to identify the relative importance of different pressures acting on benthic habitats in order to focus efforts on data collection and mapping for those pressures.
 
Catharine Horswill, Ruth H. Walker, Elizabeth M. Humphreys & Robert A. Robinson
This report evaluates the performance of active and non-active seabird projects registered in the BTO’s RAS network.
 
Noble-James, T., Jesus, A. & McBreen, F.
This guidance aims to supply the reader with the information necessary to develop robust benthic monitoring programmes and answer monitoring questions with a high level of confidence.
 
Lillis, H., Strong, J., Diesing, M. & Green, S.
Through the Seabed Mapping Working Group the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) organised a workshop aimed at developing a joint plan for carrying out the recommendations of Strong (2015), to develop “uncertainty reduction solutions” (URSs).
 
Sotheran, I., Welch, R., Benson, A. & Jones, L.
This report provides details for the common methodology and approach which was adopted for the community analysis. This includes methods for the data handling and analysis of infaunal and epifaunal datasets, how the epifaunal data was used to support the infaunal analysis and how any associated geophysical acoustic data were used to provide contextual information.
 
Alexander, D., Rengstorf, A., Wellard, K., de Ros Moliner, A. & Fletcher, S.
This report explores the marine ecosystem components and processes that influence potential ecosystem service delivery, identifies which components and processes are deemed critical in the delivery process, gathers spatial data regarding ecosystem components and processes, and maps the potential for ecosystem service delivery in the UK marine environment based on these data.
 
Louisa Jones, Megan Parry & Hugh Wright
This report documents the statistical analyses carried out by JNCC on benthic community data collected from MB0120 surveys acquired in three offshore MCZs which were designated in the second tranche of MCZs (January 2016).
