(2005-01-15) - Journal articleToothed whales (Cetacea, odontoceti) emit sound pulses to probe their surroundings by active echolocation. Noninvasive, acoustic Dtags were placed on deep-diving Blainville's beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) to ...
Clicking in Shallow Rivers : Short-Range Echolocation of Irrawaddy and Ganges River Dolphins in a Shallow, Acoustically Complex Habitat (2013-04-03) - Journal articleToothed whales (Cetacea, odontoceti) use biosonar to navigate their environment and to find and catch prey. All studied toothed whale species have evolved highly directional, high-amplitude ultrasonic clicks suited for ...
(2015-04-29) - Journal articleWhen close to prey, porpoises actively widen their sonar beam, which may make it harder for the prey to escape.
Following a foraging fish-finder : Diel habitat use of Blainville's beaked whales revealed by echolocation (2011-12-07) - Journal articleSimultaneous high resolution sampling of predator behavior and habitat characteristics is often difficult to achieve despite its importance in understanding the foraging decisions and habitat use of predators. Here we tap ...
