    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 ...
  • Density estimation of sound-producing terrestrial animals using single automatic acoustic recorders and distance sampling 

    Sebastián-González, Esther; Camp, Richard J.; Tanimoto, Ann M.; de Oliveira, Priscilla M.; Lima, Bruna B.; Marques, Tiago A.; Hart, Patrick J. (2018-12-01) - Journal article
    Obtaining accurate information on the distribution, density, and abundance of animals is an important first step toward their conservation. Methodological approaches using automatic acoustic recorders for species that ...
  • Classification of animal dive tracks via automatic landmarking, principal components analysis and clustering 

    Walker, Cameron; MacKenzie, Monique Lea; Donovan, Carl Robert; Hastie, Gordon Drummond; Quick, Nicola Jane; Kidney, Darren (2011-08-19) - Journal article
    The behaviour of animals and their interactions with the environment can be inferred by tracking their movement. For this reason, biologgers are an important source of ecological data, but analysing the shape of the tracks ...
  • 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 ...
