• BUMPER v1.0: A Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction 

      Holden, Philip B.; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Brooks, Stephen J.; Bush, Mark B.; Hwang, Grace M.; Matthews-Bird, Frazer; Valencia, Bryan G.; van Woesik, Robert (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-02-01)
      We describe the Bayesian user-friendly model for palaeo-environmental reconstruction (BUMPER), a Bayesian transfer function for inferring past climate and other environmental variables from microfossil assemblages. BUMPER ...
    • The dynamics of Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) assemblages in response to environmental change during the past 700 years on Svalbard 

      Brooks, Stephen J.; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2004)
      The impact of recent natural and human-induced environmental change on chironomid faunas on Svalbard has been investigated. The modern chironomid fauna was studied from surface-sediment samples collected from 23 lakes in ...
    • Effects of within-lake variability of fossil assemblages on quantitative chironomid-inferred temperature reconstruction 

      Heiri, Oliver; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Brooks, Stephen J.; Velle, Gaute; Willassen, Endre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2003)
      We studied the effects of within-lake variation of subfossil chironomid assemblages on chironomid-inferred temperatures in five lakes in southern Norway. In each lake six replicate surface-sediment samples in the deepest ...
    • High resolution Late-glacial and early-Holocene summer air temperature records from Scotland inferred from Chironomid assemblages 

      Brooks, Stephen J.; Matthews, Ian P.; Birks, Hilary H.; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-05-18)
      Lateglacial and early-Holocene mean July air temperatures have been reconstructed, using a chironomid-based inference model, from lake-sediment sequences from Abernethy Forest, in the eastern Highlands of Scotland, and ...
    • Late Quaternary chironomid community structure shaped by rate and magnitude of climate change 

      Mayfield, Roseanna J.; Langdon, Peter G.; Doncaster, C. Patrick; Dearing, John A.; Wang, Rong; Velle, Gaute; Davies, Kimberley L.; Brooks, Stephen J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Much is known about how climate change impacts ecosystem richness and turnover, but we have less understanding of its influence on ecosystem structures. Here, we use ecological metrics (beta diversity, compositional disorder ...
    • Looking forward through the past: identification of 50 priority research questions in palaeoecology
