Mixture models for distance sampling detection functions
(2015-03-20) - Journal article,
We present a new class of models for the detection function in distance sampling surveys of wildlife populations, based on finite mixtures of simple parametric key functions such as the half-normal. The models share many ...
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 ...
A path reconstruction method integrating dead-reckoning and position fixes applied to humpback whales
(2015-09-21) - Journal article,
BACKGROUND: Detailed information about animal location and movement is often crucial in studies of natural behaviour and how animals respond to anthropogenic activities. Dead-reckoning can be used to infer such detailed ...
Survival, density, and abundance of common bottlenose dolphins in Barataria Bay (USA) following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill
(2017-01-31) - Journal article,
To assess potential impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in April 2010, we conducted boat-based photo-identification surveys for common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus in Barataria Bay, Louisiana, USA (~230 ...
An assessment of the population of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) and their habitat in Colombia
(2016-12-28) - Journal article,
Numerous animals have declining populations due to habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade, and climate change. The cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus) is a Critically Endangered primate species, endemic to northwest Colombia, ...
Passive acoustic monitoring of the decline of Mexico's critically endangered vaquita
(2017-02) - Journal article,
The vaquita (Phocoena sinus) is the world's most endangered marine mammal with ≈245 individuals remaining in 2008. This species of porpoise is endemic to the northern Gulf of California, Mexico, and has historically suffered ...
