A risk function for behavioral disruption of Blainville’s beaked whales (Mesoplodon densirostris) from mid-frequency active sonar
(2014-01) - Journal article,
There is increasing concern about the potential effects of noise pollution on marine life in the world’s oceans. For marine mammals, anthropogenic sounds may cause behavioral disruption, and this can be quantified using a ...
Delphinid echolocation click detection probability on near-seafloor sensors
(2016-09) - Journal article,
The probability of detecting echolocating delphinids on a near-seafloor sensor was estimated using two Monte Carlo simulation methods. One method estimated the probability of detecting a single click (cue counting); the ...

An update to the methods in Endangered Species Research 2011 paper "Estimating North Pacific right whale Eubalaena japonica density using passive acoustic cue counting"
(University of St Andrews, 2012) - Report,
Procedure description : using AUTEC’s hydrophones surrounding a DTAGed whale to obtain localizations
(University of St Andrews, 2015) - Report,
Passive acoustic monitoring of beaked whale densities in the Gulf of Mexico
(2015-11-12) - Journal article,
Beaked whales are deep diving elusive animals, difficult to census with conventional visual surveys. Methods are presented for the density estimation of beaked whales, using passive acoustic monitoring data collected at ...
Incorporating animal movement into circular plot and point transect surveys of wildlife abundance
(University of St Andrews, 2018) - Thesis,
Estimating wildlife abundance is fundamental for its effective management and conservation. A range of methods exist: total counts, plot sampling, distance sampling and capture-recapture based approaches. Methods have ...
Spatio-temporal variation in click production rates of beaked whales : implications for passive acoustic density estimation
(2017-03) - Journal article,
Passive acoustic monitoring has become an increasingly prevalent tool for estimating density of marine mammals, such as beaked whales, which vocalize often but are difficult to survey visually. Counts of acoustic cues ...
Distance software: design and analysis of distance sampling surveys for estimating population size
(2010) - Journal article,
1. Distance sampling is a widely used technique for estimating the size or density of biological populations. Many distance sampling designs and most analyses use the software Distance. 2. We briefly review distance sampling ...
Estimating animal population density using passive acoustics
(2013-05) - Journal article,
Reliable estimation of the size or density of wild animal populations is very important for effective wildlife management, conservation and ecology. Currently, the most widely used methods for obtaining such estimates ...
