To manage marine ecosystems proactively, it is important to identify species at risk and habitats critical for conservation. Climate change scenarios have predicted an average sea...
Spatially explicit capture recapture methods to estimate minke whale abundance from data collected at bottom mounted hydrophones
Journal of Ornithology
Estimation of cetacean abundance or density using visual methods can be cost-ineffective under many scenarios. Methods based on acoustic data have recently been proposed as an...
Constrained by consistency? Repeatability of foraging behavior at multiple timescales for a generalist marine predator
Marine predators frequently exhibit consistency in foraging behaviors despite the dynamic nature of marine ecosystems, which has the potential for ecological and evolutionary implications depending on...
Whisker growth dynamics in two North Pacific pinnipeds: implications for determining foraging ecology from stable isotope analysis
Marine Ecology Progress Series
Stable isotope analysis (SIA) of whiskers is increasingly used to investigate the foraging ecology of pinnipeds. An understanding of whisker growth dynamics is lacking for most...
Acoustic and diving behaviour of sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) during natural and depredation foraging in the Gulf of Alaska
The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
Sperm whales have depredated black cod (Anoplopoma fimbria) from demersal longlines in the Gulf of Alaska for decades, but the behavior has recently spread in intensity...
Effects of broadband sound exposure on the interaction between foraging crab and shrimp - A field study
Aquatic animals live in an acoustic world in which they often rely on sound detection and recognition for various aspects of life that may affect survival...
Individual behavioural specialisation has far-reaching effects on fitness and population persistence. Theory predicts that unconditional site fidelity, that is fidelity to a site independent of past...
Adapted to change: Low energy requirements in a low and unpredictable productivity environment, the case of the Galapagos sea lion
Deep-Sea Research II in press
The rate of energy expenditure and acquisition are fundamental components of an animals’ life history. Within mammals, the otariids (sea lions and fur seals) exhibit energetically...
Animal Communication and Noise
For marine mammals, auditory perception plays a critical role in a variety of acoustically mediated behaviors, such as communication, foraging, social interactions, and avoidance of predators....
Marine Mammal Science
As part of their social sound repertoire, migrating humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) perform a large variety of surface-active behaviors, such as breaching and repetitive slapping of...
