Funding: NatureScot and the University of Exeter funded the study. NatureScot is an independent scientific adviser to the Scottish Government. The funder provided support in the form of salaries for authors [S.M.H], but did not have any additional role in the study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript. The University of Exeter is a research-intensive university based in the UK. The specific roles of authors are articulated in the 'author contributions' section.
Competing Interests: Since the funder, NatureScot, is not a commercial organisation, we do not have any commercial affiliations. This does not alter our adherence to PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
