Marine Protected Area Design and the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Cetaceans in a Submarine Canyon
Abstract: The Gully, the largest submarine canyon off the coast of eastern Canada, is currently under consideration as a marine conservation area, primarily because of the increasing interest in oilExpand

Ranging behaviour of forest-dwelling ship rats, Rattus rattus, and effects of poisoning with brodifacoum.
Abstract We radio‐tracked five male and four female rats for 6 nights in primary forest at Rotoehu, North Island. New Zealand. From trapping we estimated rat density at the study site to be 6.2Expand

Diet of northern bottlenose whales inferred from fatty-acid and stable-isotope analyses of biopsy samples
The Gully submarine canyon off eastern Canada has been designated a pilot marine protected area largely because of the northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus) found there. Studies of thisExpand

Marine Reserves as a Tool for Ecosystem-Based Management: The Potential Importance of Megafauna
Abstract Marine predators attract significant attention in ocean conservation planning and are therefore often used politically to promote reserve designation. We discuss whether their ecology andExpand

Deep–diving behaviour of the northern bottlenose whale, Hyperoodon ampullatus (Cetacea: Ziphiidae)
Using suction–cup attached time–depth recorder/VHF radio tags, we have obtained the first diving data on northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus), the first such data on any species withinExpand

Making protected area networks effective for marine top predators
The design of ecological networks of marine protected areas (MPAs) is generally based on the identification of areas of high abundance for species of conservation concern or focal biodiver- sityExpand

Diving and ranging behaviour of odontocetes: a methodological review and critique
TLDR
We discuss the considerations, techniques and analyses for diving and ranging studies using time‐depth recorders or acoustic transponders, together with the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Expand

Fluctuations in distribution and patterns of individual range use of northern bottlenose whales
This study investigated the pattern and scale of distribution, movements and range use of the northern bottlenose whale Hyperoodon ampullatus above a submarine canyon, the Gully, off eastern CanadaExpand

Genetic diversity and population structure among northern bottlenose whales, Hyperoodon ampullatus, in the western North Atlantic Ocean
To assess population structure and genetic diversity among northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus), we compared mitochondrial DNA control region sequences from three populations in theExpand

Population size and residency patterns of northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus) using the Gully, Nova Scotia
A population of northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus) uses the Gully, a submarine canyon off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. Eleven years of photo-identification records has permittedExpand
