    • Seal carrion is a predictable resource for coastal ecosystems 

      Quaggiotto, Maria-Martina; Barton, Philip S.; Morris, Christopher D.; Moss, Simon E. W.; Pomeroy, Patrick P.; McCafferty, Dominic J.; Bailey, David M. (2018-04) - Journal article
      The timing, magnitude, and spatial distribution of resource inputs can have large effects on dependent organisms. Few studies have examined the predictability of such resources and no standard ecological measure of ...
    • Diving behavior and fine-scale kinematics of free-ranging Risso’s dolphins foraging in shallow and deep-water habitats 

      Arranz, Patricia; Benoit-Bird, Kelly; Friedlaender, Ari S.; Hazen, Elliot L.; Goldbogen, Jeremy A.; Stimpert, Alison K.; De Ruiter, Stacy Lynn; Calambokidis, John; Southall, Brandon; Fahlman, Andreas; Tyack, Peter Lloyd (2019-03-12) - Journal article
      Air-breathing marine predators must balance the conflicting demands of oxygen conservation during breath-hold and the cost of diving and locomotion to capture prey. However, it remains poorly understood how predators ...
    • Fin whale density and distribution estimation using acoustic bearings derived from sparse arrays 

      Harris, Danielle V.; Miksis-Olds, Jennifer L.; Vernon, Julia A.; Thomas, Len (2018-05) - Journal article
      Passive acoustic monitoring of marine mammals is common, and it is now possible to estimate absolute animal density from acoustic recordings. The most appropriate density estimation method depends on how much detail about ...
    • A review of unmanned vehicles for the detection and monitoring of marine fauna 

      Verfuss, Ursula K.; Aniceto, Ana Sofia; Harris, Danielle V.; Gillespie, Douglas; Fielding, Sophie; Jiménez, Guillermo; Johnston, Phil; Sinclair, Rachael R.; Sivertsen, Agnar; Solbø, Stian A.; Storvold, Rune; Biuw, Martin; Wyatt, Roy (2019-03) - Journal item
      Recent technology developments have turned present-day unmanned systems into realistic alternatives to traditional marine animal survey methods. Benefits include longer survey durations, improved mission safety, mission ...
    • Whale distribution in a breeding area : spatial models of habitat use and abundance of western South Atlantic humpback whales 

      Bortolotto, Guilherme Augusto; Danilewicz, Daniel; Hammond, Philip Steven; Thomas, Leonard Joseph; Zerbini, Alexandre N (2017-12-27) - Journal article
      The western South Atlantic humpback whale population was severely depleted by commercial whaling in the late 19th and 20th centuries, and today inhabits a human-impacted environment in its wintering grounds off the Brazilian ...
