  • 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 ...
  • Dose-response relationships for the onset of avoidance of sonar by free-ranging killer whales 

    Miller, Patrick; Antunes, Ricardo Nuno; Wensveen, Paulus Jacobus; Samarra, Filipa Isabel Pereira; Alves, Ana Catarina De Carvalho; Tyack, Peter Lloyd; Kvadsheim, Petter H.; Kleivane, Lars; Lam, Frans-Peter A.; Ainslie, Michael A.; Thomas, Len (2014-02) - Journal article
    Eight experimentally controlled exposures to 1−2 kHz or 6−7 kHz sonar signals were conducted with four killer whale groups. The source level and proximity of the source were increased during each exposure in order to reveal ...
  • Dots and lines : geometric semigroup theory and finite presentability 

    Awang, Jennifer S. (University of St Andrews, 2015-06-26) - Thesis
    Geometric semigroup theory means different things to different people, but it is agreed that it involves associating a geometric structure to a semigroup and deducing properties of the semigroup based on that structure. ...
  • Double bootstrap confidence intervals in the two-stage DEA approach

  • Double-observer line transect methods : levels of independence 

    Buckland, Stephen Terrence; Laake, Jeffrey L.; Borchers, David Louis (2010-03) - Journal article
    Double-observer line transect methods are becoming increasingly widespread, especially for the estimation of marine mammal abundance from aerial and shipboard surveys when detection of animals on the line is uncertain. The ...
  • Double-observer line transect surveys with Markov-modulated Poisson process models for overdispersed animal availability 

    Borchers, David Louis; Langrock, Roland (2015-12) - Journal article
    We develop maximum likelihood methods for line transect surveys in which animals go undetected at distance zero, either because they are stochastically unavailable while within view or because they are missed when they are ...
