Estimating spatial, temporal and individual variability in dolphin cumulative exposure to boat traffic using spatially explicit capture- recapture methods.
Appropriate management of the effects of human activities on animal populations requires quantification of the rate at which animals encounter stressors. Such activities are heterogeneously distributed...
The Journal of Experimental Biology
The production of venous gas emboli (VGE) resulting from altered dive behavior is postulated as contributing to the stranding of beaked whales exposed to mid-frequency active...
Acoustic monitoring of coastal dolphins and their response to naval mine neutralization exercises
Royal Society Open Science
To investigate the potential impacts of naval mine neutralization exercises (MINEX) on odontocete cetaceans, a long-term passive acoustic monitoring study was conducted at a US Navy...
Effects of vibratory pile driver noise on echolocation and vigilance in bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
Vibratory pile drivers, used for marine construction, can produce sustained, high sound pressure levels (SPLs) in areas that overlap with dolphin habitats. Dolphins rely on echolocation...
Lagenorhynchus albirostris (Gray, 1846a) is a delphinid commonly called the white-beaked dolphin. A robustly built dolphin with black, white, and gray coloration, it has a whitish...
Dolphins Adjust Species-Specific Frequency Parameters to Compensate for Increasing Background Noise
An increase in ocean noise levels could interfere with acoustic communication of marine mammals. In this study we explored the effects of anthropogenic and natural noise...
