Short first click intervals in echolocation trains of three species of deep diving odontocetes
(2017-02) - Journal article,
All odontocetes produce echolocation clicks as part of their vocal repertoire. In this paper we analysed inter-click-intervals in recordings from suction cup tags with a focus on the first inter-click interval of each click ...
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 ...
Naval sonar disrupts foraging behaviour in humpback whales
(2016-12-29) - Journal article,
Modern long-range naval sonars are a potential disturbance for marine mammals and can cause disruption of feeding in cetaceans. We examined the lunge-feeding behaviour of humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae before, ...
Body density and diving gas volume of the northern bottlenose whale (Hyperoodon ampullatus)
(2016-08-17) - Journal article,
Diving lung volume and tissue density, reflecting lipid store volume, are important physiological parameters that have only been estimated for a few breath-hold diving species. We fitted 12 northern bottlenose whales with ...
