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 ...
Status and future of research on the behavioural responses of marine mammals to U.S. Navy sonar
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Report,
A review of the status and future of research into behavioral responses of marine mammals to naval sonar exposure was undertaken to evaluate the return on investment of current US Navy funded programs, identify the data ...
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 ...
Bayesian inference supports the host selection hypothesis in explaining adaptive host specificity by European bitterling
(2017-02) - Journal article,
Generalist parasites have the capacity to infect multiple hosts. The temporal pattern of host specificity by generalist parasites is rarely studied, but is critical to understanding what variables underpin infection and ...
Harbour porpoise distribution can vary at small spatiotemporal scales in energetic habitats
(2017-07) - Journal article,
Marine habitat heterogeneity underpins species distribution and can be generated through interactions between physical and biological drivers at multiple spatiotemporal scales. Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is used ...
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) ...
Passive acoustic methods for fine-scale tracking of harbour porpoises in tidal rapids
(2017-02) - Journal article,
The growing interest in generating electrical power from tidal currents using tidal turbine generators raises a number of environmental concerns, including the risk that marine mammals might be injured or killed through ...
Assessing the design and power of capture-recapture studies to estimate population growth rate and abundance of the endangered Oceania humpback whale population
(2015) - Journal article,
Capture-recapture studies offer a powerful tool to assess abundance, survival and population rate of change (λ). A previous capture-recapture study, based on DNA profiles, estimated that the IUCN-listed Endangered Oceania ...
Successful suction-cup tagging of a small delphinid species, Stenella attenuata : insights into whistle characteristics
(2017-04-13) - Journal article,
