Efforts to model populations of the leatherback sea turtle Dermochelys coriacea and design appropriate conservation measures for this endangered species have been hindered by a lack of information on in-water (vs. nesting) population characteristics. We present the first synthesis of population characteristics of leatherbacks at high latitudes. During 8(More)
Human visual recognition is based largely on shape, yet effectively using shapes in natural image retrieval is a challenging task. Most existing methods are based on the geometric equations of curves computed from processing an entire image. These processes are computationally intensive, lack flexibility and do not take advantage or with minimum use of the(More)
The North Atlantic right whale is one of the most critically endangered marine species. Drastic overexploitation has driven this large, slow-swimming baleen whale to virtual extinction in Europe, while a small remnant population of ~350 individuals remains on the US and Canadian east coast. Although this species has been protected for 70 years, recovery has(More)
