Estimating Key Largo woodrat abundance using spatially explicit capture–recapture and trapping point transects
(2016-06) - Journal article,
The Key Largo woodrat (Neotoma floridana smalli) is an endangered rodent with a restricted geographic range and small population size. Establishing an efficient monitoring program of its abundance has been problematic; ...
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 ...
An efficient acoustic density estimation method with human detectors applied to gibbons in Cambodia
(2016-05-19) - Journal article,
Some animal species are hard to see but easy to hear. Standard visual methods for estimating population density for such species are often ineffective or inefficient, but methods based on passive acoustics show more promise. ...
Effects of a scientific echo sounder on the behavior of short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus)
(2017-05) - Journal article,
Active echo sounding devices are often employed for commercial or scientific purposes in the foraging habitats of marine mammals. We conducted an experiment off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA, to assess whether the ...
Dose response severity functions for acoustic disturbance in cetaceans using recurrent event survival analysis
(2015-11-20) - Journal article,
Behavioral response studies (BRSs) aim to enhance our understanding of the behavior changes made by animals in response to specific exposure levels of different stimuli, often presented in an increasing dosage. Here, we ...
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 ...
