  • Hidden Markov models reveal complexity in the diving behaviour of short-finned pilot whales 

    Quick, Nicola J.; Isojunno, Saana; Sadykova, Dina; Bowers, Matthew; Nowacek, Douglas P.; Read, Andrew J. (2017-03-31) - Journal article
    Diving behaviour of short-finned pilot whales is often described by two states; deep foraging and shallow, non-foraging dives. However, this simple classification system ignores much of the variation that occurs during ...
  • A new approach to estimate fecundity rate from inter-birth intervals 

    Arso Civil, Mònica; Cheney, Barbara; Quick, Nicola J.; Thompson, Paul M.; Hammond, Philip S. (2017-04) - Journal article
    Accurate estimates of fecundity rate are key to population assessments and effectively direct conservation efforts. We present a new approach to estimate fecundity rate based on the probability of a female giving birth, ...
