Techniques for cetacean-habitat modeling
Cetacean-habitat modeling, although still in the early stages of development, represents a potentially powerful tool for predicting cetacean distributions and understanding the ecological processesExpand

Fine-scale habitat modeling of a top marine predator: do prey data improve predictive capacity?
Predators and prey assort themselves relative to each other, the availability of resources and refuges, and the temporal and spatial scale of their interaction. Predictive models of predatorExpand

Where to catch a fish? The influence of foraging tactics on the ecology of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Florida Bay, Florida
Observations of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in Florida Bay, Florida, between 2002 and 2005 revealed the use of three distinct foraging tactics. The goal of this study was to identifyExpand

Influence of teleost abundance on the distribution and abundance of sharks in Florida Bay, USA
Understanding the factors that influence the distribution and abundance of predators, including sharks, is important for predicting the impacts of human changes to the environment. Such studies areExpand

Evidence for an unrecognised blue whale foraging ground in New Zealand
Abstract Blue whale distribution in the Southern Hemisphere is poorly understood. Their survival is dependent on the ability to reliably encounter large aggregations of euphausiid prey. Therefore,Expand

Poor Transferability of Species Distribution Models for a Pelagic Predator, the Grey Petrel, Indicates Contrasting Habitat Preferences across Ocean Basins
Species distribution models (SDMs) are increasingly applied in conservation management to predict suitable habitat for poorly known populations. High predictive performance of SDMs is evident inExpand

A sense of scale: Foraging cetaceans' use of scale‐dependent multimodal sensory systems
Research on cetacean foraging ecology is central to our understanding of their spatial and behavioral ecology. Yet, functional mechanisms by which cetaceans detect prey across different scales remainExpand

Addressing Challenges in the Application of Animal Movement Ecology to Aquatic Conservation and Management
The dynamic nature of most environments forces many animals to move to meet their fundamental needs. This is especially true in aquatic environments where shifts in spatial ecology (which are aExpand

Estimating morphometric attributes of baleen whales with photogrammetry from small UASs: A case study with blue and gray whales
Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUASs) are fostering novel approaches to marine mammal research, including baleen whale photogrammetry, by providing new observational perspectives. We collectedExpand
