Efficient abstracting of dive profiles using a broken-stick model
(2015-03) - Journal article,
For diving animals, animal-borne sensors are used to collect time-depth information for studying behaviour, ranging patterns and foraging ecology. Often, this information needs to be compressed for storage or transmission. ...
An approximate Bayesian method applied to estimating the trajectories of four British grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) populations from pup counts.
(2011) - Journal article,
1. For British grey seals, as with many pinniped species, population monitoring is implemented by aerial surveys of pups at breeding colonies. Scaling pup counts up to population estimates requires assumptions about ...
A simulation approach to assessing environmental risk of sound exposure to marine mammals
(2017-04) - Journal article,
Intense underwater sounds caused by military sonar, seismic surveys, and pile driving can harm acoustically sensitive marine mammals. Many jurisdictions require such activities to undergo marine mammal impact assessments ...

Workshop on new developments in cetacean survey methods
(University of St Andrews, 2011) - Report,
This report contains the slides from a workshop on New Developments in Cetacean Survey Methods held on 27th November 2011 at the 19th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals, Tampa, Florida. Review talks were ...
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,
Vessel noise affects beaked whale behavior : Results of a dedicated acoustic response study
(2012-08-03) - Journal article,
Some beaked whale species are susceptible to the detrimental effects of anthropogenic noise. Most studies have concentrated on the effects of military sonar, but other forms of acoustic disturbance (e.g. shipping noise) ...
The effect of animal movement on line transect estimates of abundance
(2015-03-23) - Journal article,
Line transect sampling is a distance sampling method for estimating the abundance of wild animal populations. One key assumption of this method is that all animals are detected at their initial location. Animal movement ...
Using energetic models to investigate the survival and reproduction of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae)
(2013-07-17) - Journal article,
Mass stranding of several species of beaked whales (family Ziphiidae) associated with exposure to anthropogenic sounds has raised concern for the conservation of these species. However, little is known about the species’ ...
