A 3D stereo camera system for precisely positioning animals in space and time
(2015-04) - Journal article,
Here, we describe a portable stereo camera system that integrates a GPS receiver, an attitude sensor and 3D stereo photogrammetry to rapidly estimate the position of multiple animals in space and time. We demonstrate the ...
Mechanical vulnerability explains size-dependent mortality of reef corals
(2014-08) - Journal article,
Understanding life history and demographic variation among species within communities is a central ecological goal. Mortality schedules are especially important in ecosystems where disturbance plays a major role in structuring ...
Cultural turnover among Galápagos sperm whales
(2016-10) - Journal article,
While populations may wax and wane, it is rare for an entire population to be replaced by a completely different set of individuals. We document the large-scale relocation of cultural groups of sperm whale off the Galápagos ...
Whistle characteristics and daytime dive behavior in pantropical spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata) in Hawai‘i measured using digital acoustic recording tags (DTAGs)
(2016-07-19) - Journal article,
This study characterizes daytime acoustic and dive behavior of pantropical spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata) in Hawai‘i using 14.58 h of data collected from five deployments of digital acoustic recording tags (DTAG3) ...
Successful suction-cup tagging of a small delphinid species, Stenella attenuata : insights into whistle characteristics
(2017-04-13) - Journal article,
Fine-scale harbour seal usage for informed marine spatial planning
(2017-09-14) - Journal article,
High-resolution species distribution maps are required for marine spatial planning, consenting, and licensing to assess interactions between anthropogenic activities and ecosystems. This approach can inform conservation ...
Responses of bottlenose dolphins and harbor porpoises to impact and vibration piling noise during harbor construction
(2017-05) - Journal article,
The development of risk assessments for the exposure of protected populations to noise from coastal construction is constrained by uncertainty over the nature and extent of marine mammal responses to man-made noise. ...
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill marine mammal injury assessment
(2017-01-31) - Journal item,
From 2010 to 2015, a team of scientists studied how the BP Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill affected marine mammals inhabiting the northern Gulf of Mexico, as part of the DWH Natural Resource Damage Assessment process. ...
The significance of respiration timing in the energetics estimates of free-ranging killer whales (Orcinus orca)
(2016-07) - Journal article,
Respiration rate has been used as an indicator of metabolic rates and associated cost-of-transport (COT) of free-ranging cetaceans, discounting potential respiration-by-respiration variation in O2 uptake. To investigate ...
