A product of its environment: the epaulette shark (Hemiscyllium ocellatum) exhibits physiological tolerance to elevated environmental CO2
TLDR
It was found that long-term exposure to elevated CO2 did not affect the epaulette shark, possibly because it experiences fluctuating environmental conditions in its shallow coral reef habitat. Expand
Foraging behaviour of the epaulette shark Hemiscyllium ocellatum is not affected by elevated CO2
TLDR
Behaviour of the epaulette shark was unaffected by elevated CO2, suggesting that behavioural tolerance and subsequent adaptation to projected future CO2 levels might be possible in some other fish, if adaptation can keep pace with the rate of risingCO2 levels. Expand
Social learning in solitary juvenile sharks
Social learning can be a shortcut for acquiring locally adaptive information. Animals that live in social groups have better access to social information, but gregarious and nonsocial species areExpand
Effects of reward magnitude and training frequency on the learning rates and memory retention of the Port Jackson shark Heterodontus portusjacksoni
TLDR
A reduction in reinforcement frequency during tourism-related feeding operations is likely to be more effective in reducing the risk of sharks making associations with food than limiting the amount of food provided. Expand
