    Meta-analysis of multispecies interactions and the affect on recruitment in demersal fish stocks
    My project focusses on incorporating multispecies effects into latent variable covariance models that have been used to estimate density dependence within species (see Myers and Cadigan, 1993). Using long-term survey data from many different stocks, it is possible to elucidate the underlying trends. Part of my project focusses in particular on Irish Sea demersal assemblages.
