“photosearcher” package in R: An accessible and reproducible method for harvesting large datasets from Flickr

The photosearcher package allows users to access metadata from the Flickr social media website. We illustrate usage of this data with a cultural ecosystem services, and a species distribution case study.

Identifying Agricultural Frontiers for Modeling Global Cropland Expansion

- The current (1992) global extent of cropland can be explained with existing data - Recent expansion (1992–2015) of cropland is not well explained with existing data - Deviations from the 1992 model of extent improve models of cropland expansion

Incorporating geodiversity in ecosystem service decisions

A framework for embedding geodiversity into ecosystem services decisions and management

Scale-dependency in drivers of outdoor recreation in England

Why do we want to visit places for outdoor recreation and how can we measure this?

Ignoring the spatial structure of the sea cucumber Isostichopus fuscus distribution when granting quotas can be costly

There is an increasing demand for fisheries resources worldwide. The brown sea cucumber *Isostichopus fuscus* is the most valuable species from the Eastern Pacific and it has been almost depleted due to overfishing. Here, we show that it is important to consider the spatial structure of *Isostichopus fuscus* populations when granting quotas. Given the high levels of illegal fishing within the Gulf of California, it is imperative that quotas are based on the lower bounds of spatially explicit density estimates – along with increased surveillance and enforcement – if the long-term commercial sustainability of the fishery is to be maintained.

Mapping access to domestic water supplies from incomplete data in developing countries: An illustrative assessment for Kenya

Using species' distribution modelling methods to map access to water sources.

Survival estimates of bird species across altered habitats in the tropical Andes

The probability of long‐term persistence of a population is strongly determined by adult survival rates, but estimates of survival are currently lacking for most species of birds in the tropical Andes, a global biodiversity hotspot. We calculated …

Incorporating fine‐scale environmental heterogeneity into broad‐extent models

How can we aggregate data avoiding loss of information on fine‐grain heterogeneity?

An analytical framework for spatially targeted management of natural capital

A major sustainability challenge is determining where to target management to enhance natural capital and the ecosystem services it provides. Achieving this understanding is difficult, given that the effects of most actions vary according to wider …

Spatial models of carbon, nitrogen and sulphur stable isotope distributions (isoscapes) across a shelf sea: An INLA approach

1. Spatial models of variation in the isotopic composition of structural nutrients across habitats (isoscapes) offer information on physical, biogeochemical and anthropogenic processes occurring across space, and provide a tool for retrospective …
