    • Deadly diving? Physiological and behavioural management of decompression stress in diving mammals 

      Hooker, Sascha Kate; Fahlman, A.; Moore, M. J.; Aguilar de Soto, N.; Bernaldo de Quiros, Y.; Brubakk, A. O.; Costa, D. P.; Costidis, A. M.; Dennison, S.; Falke, K. J.; Fernandez, A.; Ferrigno, M.; Fitz-Clarke, J. R.; Garner, M. M.; Houser, D. S.; Jepson, P. D.; Ketten, D. R.; Kvadsheim, P. H.; Madsen, P. T.; Pollock, N. W.; Rotstein, D. S.; Rowles, T. K.; Simmons, S. E.; Van Bonn, W.; Weathersby, P. K.; Weise, M. J.; Williams, T. M.; Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2012-03-22) - Journal item
      Decompression sickness (DCS; 'the bends') is a disease associated with gas uptake at pressure. The basic pathology and cause are relatively well known to human divers. Breath-hold diving marine mammals were thought to be ...
    • 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 ...
    • Images as proximity sensors : the incidence of conspecific foraging in Antarctic fur seals 

      Hooker, Sascha Kate; Barychka, Tatsiana; Jessopp, Mark J; Staniland, Iain J (2015-09-29) - Journal article
      Background: Although there have been recent advances in the development of animal-attached ‘proximity’ tags to remotely record the interactions of multiple individuals, the efficacy of these devices depends on the ...
    • Prioritizing global marine mammal habitats using density maps in place of range maps 

      Williams, Robert; Grand, Joanna; Hooker, Sascha Kate; Buckland, Stephen Terrence; Reeves, Randall R.; Rojas-Bracho, Lorenzo; Sandilands, Doug; Kaschner, Kristin (2014-03) - Journal article
      Despite lessons from terrestrial systems, conservation efforts in marine systems continue to focus on identifying priority sites for protection based on high species richness inferred from range maps. Range maps oversimplify ...
    • Using energetic models to investigate the survival and reproduction of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae) 

      New, Leslie Frances; Moretti, David; Hooker, Sascha Kate; Costa, Daniel P.; Simmons, Samantha E. (2013-07-17) - Journal article
      Mass stranding of several species of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae) associated with exposure to anthropogenic sounds has raised concern for the conservation of these species. However, little is known about the species’ ...
