Vessel collisions with small cetaceans worldwide and with large whales in the Southern Hemisphere, an initial assessment
Collisions with vessels are a well-documented conservation problem for some populations of large whales (LW) in the Northern Hemisphere. Less attention has been given to incidents in the SouthernExpand

Seasonal and Geographic Variation of Southern Blue Whale Subspecies in the Indian Ocean
Understanding the seasonal movements and distribution patterns of migratory species over ocean basin scales is vital for appropriate conservation and management measures. However, assessingExpand

Localization and visual verification of a complex minke whale vocalization.
A recently described population of minke whales (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) offered a unique opportunity to study its acoustic behavior. The often-inquisitive dwarf minke whale is seen on the GreatExpand

Bioacoustics: Only male fin whales sing loud songs
The low-frequency vocalizations of fin and blue whales are the most powerful and ubiquitous biological sounds in the ocean. Here we combine acoustic localization and molecular techniques to showExpand

Satellite tracking of Australian humpback ( Megaptera novaeangliae ) and pygmy blue whales ( Balaenoptera musculus brevicauda )
This paper describes three datasets derived from the deployment of satellite tags on pygmy blue whales off south-western Australia and on humpback whales off Evans Head, eastern Australia and theExpand

Humpback Whale Song on the Southern Ocean Feeding Grounds: Implications for Cultural Transmission
Male humpback whales produce a long, complex, and stereotyped song on low-latitude breeding grounds; they also sing while migrating to and from these locations, and occasionally in high-latitudeExpand

Red Shift, Blue Shift: Investigating Doppler Shifts, Blubber Thickness, and Migration as Explanations of Seasonal Variation in the Tonality of Antarctic Blue Whale Song
The song of Antarctic blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus intermedia) comprises repeated, stereotyped, low-frequency calls. Measurements of these calls from recordings spanning many years haveExpand

Assessing the risk of chronic shipping noise to baleen whales off Southern California, USA
Low-frequency noise that is part of the acoustic environment for baleen whales has increased in many areas of the Northeast Pacific Ocean that contain whale habitat. We conducted a spatially explicitExpand

Steady inter and intra-annual decrease in the vocalization frequency of Antarctic blue whales.
Time averaged narrow-band noise near 27 Hz produced by vocalizations of many distant Antarctic blue whales intensifies seasonally from early February to late October in the ocean off Australia'sExpand

Respiration and heart rate at the surface between dives in northern elephant seals.
All underwater activities of diving mammals are constrained by the need for surface gas exchange. Our aim was to measure respiratory rate (fb) and heart rate (fh) at the surface between dives inExpand
