    • Acoustic and foraging behavior of a Baird’s beaked whale, Berardius bairdii, exposed to simulated sonar 

      Stimpert, Alison; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Southall, Brandon; Moretti, David; Falcone, Erin; Goldbogen, Jeremy; Friedlaender, Ari; Schorr, Greg; Calambokidis, John (2014-11-13) - Journal article
      Beaked whales are hypothesized to be particularly sensitive to anthropogenic noise, based on previous strandings and limited experimental and observational data. However, few species have been studied in detail. We describe ...
    • Acoustic sequences in non-human animals : a tutorial review and prospectus 

      Kershenbaum, Arik; Blumstein, Dan; Roch, Marie; Akçay, Çaglar; Backus, Gregory; Bee, Mark A.; Bohn, Kirsten; Cao, Yan; Carter, Gerald; Cäsar, Cristiane; Coen, Michael; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Doyle, Laurance; Edelman, Shimon; Ferrer-i-Cancho, Ramon; Freeberg, Todd M.; Garland, Ellen Clare; Gustison, Morgan; Harley, Heidi E.; Huetz, Chloé; Hughes, Melissa; Bruno, Julia Hyland; Ilany, Amiyaal; Jin, Dezhe Z.; Johnson, Michael; Ju, Chenghui; Karnowski, Jeremy; Lohr, Bernard; Manser, Marta; McCowan, Brenda; Mercado III, Eduardo; Narins, Peter M.; Piel, Alex; Rice, Megan; Salmi, Roberta; Sasahara, Kazutoshi; Sayigh, Laela; Shiu, Yu; Taylor, Charles; Vallejo, Edgar E.; Waller, Sara; Zamora-Gutierrez, Veronica (2016-02) - Journal article
      Animal acoustic communication often takes the form of complex sequences, made up of multiple distinct acoustic units. Apart from the well-known example of birdsong, other animals such as insects, amphibians,and mammals ...
    • An analysis of pilot whale vocalization activity using hidden Markov models 

      Popov, Valentin Mina; Langrock, Roland; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Visser, Fleur (2017-01) - Journal article
      Vocalizations of cetaceans form a key component of their social interactions. Such vocalization activity is driven by the behavioral states of the whales, which are not directly observable, so that latent-state models are ...
    • Blue whales respond to simulated mid-frequency military sonar 

      Goldbogen, Jeremy A.; Southall, Brandon L.; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Calambokidis, John; Friedlaender, Ari S.; Hazen, Elliott L.; Falcone, Erin A.; Schorr, Gregory S.; Douglas, Annie; Moretti, David J.; Kyburg, Chris; McKenna, Megan F.; Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2013) - Journal article
      Mid-frequency military (1–10 kHz) sonars have been associated with lethal mass strandings of deep-diving toothed whales, but the effects on endangered baleen whale species are virtually unknown. Here, we used controlled ...
    • The challenges of analyzing behavioral response study data : an overview of the MOCHA (Multi-study OCean acoustics Human effects Analysis) project 

      Harris, Catriona M; Thomas, Len; Sadykova, Dinara; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Southall, Brandon L.; Read, Andrew J.; Miller, Patrick (Springer Science and Business Media, 2016) - Conference item
      This paper describes the MOCHA project which aims to develop novel approaches for the analysis of data collected during Behavioral Response Studies (BRSs). BRSs are experiments aimed at directly quantifying the effects of ...
    • Diving behavior and fine-scale kinematics of free-ranging Risso’s dolphins foraging in shallow and deep-water habitats 

      Arranz, Patricia; Benoit-Bird, Kelly; Friedlaender, Ari S.; Hazen, Elliot L.; Goldbogen, Jeremy A.; Stimpert, Alison K.; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Calambokidis, John; Southall, Brandon; Fahlman, Andreas; Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2019-03-12) - Journal article
      Air-breathing marine predators must balance the conflicting demands of oxygen conservation during breath-hold and the cost of diving and locomotion to capture prey. However, it remains poorly understood how predators ...
    • Dose response severity functions for acoustic disturbance in cetaceans using recurrent event survival analysis 

      Harris, Catriona M; Sadykova, Dinara; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Miller, Patrick; Kvadsheim, Petter; Lam, Frans-Peter; Thomas, Len (2015-11-20) - Journal article
      Behavioral response studies (BRSs) aim to enhance our understanding of the behavior changes made by animals in response to specific exposure levels of different stimuli, often presented in an increasing dosage. Here, we ...
    • First direct measurements of behavioural responses by Cuvier's beaked whales to mid-frequency active sonar 

      De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Southall, Brandon L.; Calambokidis, John; Zimmer, Walter M. X.; Sadykova, Dinara; Falcone, Erin A.; Friedlaender, Ari S.; Joseph, John E.; Moretti, David; Schorr, Gregory S.; Thomas, Len; Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2013) - Journal article
      Most marine mammal­ strandings coincident with naval sonar exercises have involved Cuvier's beaked whales (Ziphius cavirostris). We recorded animal movement and acoustic data on two tagged Ziphius and obtained the first ...
    • First indications that northern bottlenose whales are sensitive to behavioural disturbance from anthropogenic noise 

      Miller, Patrick; Kvadsheim, P H; Lam, F P A; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Curé, C; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Kleivane, L; Sivle, L D; van IJsselmuide, S P; Visser, F; Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; von Benda-Beckmann, A M; Martin Lopez, Lucia Martina; Narazaki, Tomoko; Hooker, Sascha Kate (2015-06-03) - Journal article
      Although northern bottlenose whales were the most heavily hunted beaked whale, we have little information about this species in its remote habitat of the North Atlantic Ocean. Underwater anthropogenic noise and disruption ...
    • Using accelerometers to determine the calling behavior of tagged baleen whales 

      Goldbogen, Jeremy; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Stimpert, Alison; Calambokidis, John; Friedlaender, Ari; Schorr, Greg; Moretti, David; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Southall, Brandon (2014-07-15) - Journal article
      Low-frequency acoustic signals generated by baleen whales can propagate over vast distances, making the assignment of calls to specific individuals problematic. Here, we report the novel use of acoustic recording tags ...
