Humans of AI3SD: Dr Jennifer Hiscock

Michelle Pauli & Jennifer R. Hiscock
This interview forms part of our Humans of AI3SD Series. Dr Jennifer Hiscock is a reader in supramolecular chemistry at the University of Kent and a UKRI Future Leaders fellow. Her research is focused on a new approach to antibiotic and anti-cancer drug design and she is also co-founder of an international Women in Supramolecular Chemistry network. In this Humans of AI3SD interview she discusses the marginalisation of women in chemistry, using AI to handle...

Optimising bat bioacoustic surveys in human-modified neotropical landscapes

Adrià López-Baucells, Natalie Yoh, Ricardo Rocha, Paulo Bobrowiec, Jorge Palmeirim & Christoph Meyer
During the last decades, the use of bioacoustics as a non-invasive and cost-effective sampling method has greatly increased worldwide. For bats, acoustic surveys have long been known to complement traditional mist-netting, however, appropriate protocol guidelines are still lacking for tropical regions. Establishing the minimum sampling effort needed to detect ecological changes in bat assemblages (e.g., activity, composition and richness) is crucial in view of workload and project cost constraints, and because detecting such changes must...

SI dataset S1 - knuckle-walking biomechanical strategies

Julia Arias-Martorell, Angel Zeininger & Tracy Kivell
African apes engage in a distinct form of locomotion called knuckle-walking, but there is much ambiguity as to when and how this locomotor behaviour evolved. This study aims to elucidate potential differences in knuckle-walking elbow posture and loading in African apes through the study of trabecular bone. Using a whole-epiphysis approach, we quantified variation in trabecular structure of the distal humerus of chimpanzees, western lowland gorillas, and mountain gorillas in comparison to orang-utans, siamangs and...

High temperatures and human pressures interact to influence mortality in an African carnivore

Daniella Rabaiotti, Rosemary Groom, J. W. McNutt, Jessica Watermeyer, Helen O'Neill & Rosie Woodroffe
1. The impacts of high ambient temperatures on mortality in humans and domestic animals are well understood. However much less is known about how hot weather affects mortality in wild animals. High ambient temperatures have been associated with African wild dog Lycaon pictus pup mortality, suggesting that high temperatures might also be linked to high adult mortality. 2. We analysed mortality patterns in African wild dogs radio-collared in Kenya (0°N), Botswana (20°S) and Zimbabwe (20°S),...

Evidence shortfalls in the recommendations and guidance underpinning ecological mitigation for infrastructure developments

Sara Bronwen Hunter, Sophus Zu Ermgassen, Harriet Downey, Richard Griffiths & Caroline Howe
1. In the UK and European Union, legal protection of species from the impacts of infrastructure development depends upon a number of ecological mitigation and compensation (EMC) measures to moderate the conflict between development and conservation. However, the scientific evidence supporting their effectiveness has not yet been comprehensively assessed. 2. This study compiled the measures used in practice, identified and explored the guidance that informed them and, using the Conservation Evidence database, evaluated the empirical...

Microsatellite Dataset for: Weaving et al. Conservation genetics of regionally extinct peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) and unassisted recovery without genetic bottleneck in southern England

Rodrigo Vega, Angela Weaving, Hazel Jackson, Michael Nicholls & Jon Franklin
The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus) has been affected by persecution, pollution, trade, and habitat degradation, but it is considered a flagship conservation success story because of successful reintroductions and population recoveries across broad ranges. However, in the UK there were never formal reintroduction programmes for peregrine falcons, and it appears that UK populations—and specifically the Sussex peregrines of the English south coast—recently recovered from a population crash unassisted. To study this, we obtained samples from...
