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) ...
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 ...
Dynamic habitat corridors for marine predators : intensive use of a coastal channel by harbour seals is modulated by tidal currents
(2016-12) - Journal article,
Previous studies have found that predators utilise habitat corridors to ambush prey moving through them. In the marine environment, coastal channels effectively act as habitat corridors for prey movements, and sightings ...
