BackgroundCentral place foragers (CPF) rest within a central place, and theory predicts that distance of patches from this central place sets the outer limits of the foraging arena. Many marine ectothermic predators behave like CPF animals, but never stop swimming, suggesting that predators will incur ‘travelling’ costs while resting. Currently, it is unknown how these CPF predators behave or how modulation of behavior contributes to daily energy budgets. We combine acoustic telemetry, multi… Expand
A bird's-eye view on turbulence: seabird foraging associations with evolving surface flow features
TLDR
It is shown that terns were more likely to actively forage as the strength of the underlying vorticity feature increased, while conspicuous upwellings ahead of the flight path presented a strong physical cue to stay in transit behaviour, demonstrating the importance of prevalent turbulence features as localized foraging cues. Expand
Multi-colony approaches to study migratory and foraging strategies in pelagic seabirds
TLDR
This thesis develops methods to test the possible biases introduced by the use of individual tracking data to infer distribution at a population or species level, and develops several functions in the R environment aimed at the detection of the effects of individual site fidelity and temporal variability in the inference of spatial use at a colony or population level.

Oceanic Diel Vertical Movement Patterns of Blue Sharks Vary With Water Temperature and Productivity to Change Vulnerability to Fishing
In the pelagic environment diel vertical movements (DVM) are widespread across taxa, from zooplankton ascending from day-time depths into surface layers at night to avoid visual predators, to apexExpand
Multiyear social stability and social information use in reef sharks with diel fission–fusion dynamics
TLDR
This work shows multiyear social stability in sharks and suggests that social foraging with information transfer could provide a generalizable mechanism for the emergence of sociality with group central place foraging. Expand
Evaluating the constraints governing activity patterns of a coastal marine top predator
How animals partition activity throughout the day is influenced by processes that affect supply and obtainability of resources. However, as resource supply and usability are often entrained by theExpand
Diving deeper into the underlying white shark behaviors at Guadalupe Island, Mexico
TLDR
From 24 acoustic trackings of 10 white sharks in Guadalupe Island, for the first time, horizontal and vertical movement data are linked and six different behavioral states along with movement states are inferred, through the use of hidden Markov models, which allowed to draw a comprehensive picture of white shark behavior.

Seasonal activity levels of a farm-island population of striated caracaras (Phalcoboenus australis) in the Falkland Islands
TLDR
That caracaras’ daily activity and body mass did not vary between seasons suggests that wintering birds on Saunders are meeting resource requirements despite the absence of seasonally migratory prey, and it is hypothesized that human subsidies may mitigate the effect of seasonal food limitations.

First Insights Into the Fine-Scale Movements of the Sandbar Shark, Carcharhinus plumbeus
The expanding use of biologging tags in studies of shark movement provides an opportunity to compare fine-scale movement behaviours among species. In May 2017, we deployed high-resolution biologgingExpand
Day/night patterns of habitat use by dogfish sharks (Squalidae) at photic and subphotic warm-temperate reefs: evidence for diel movements and size- and sex-segregation
Dogfish sharks (genus Squalus) demonstrate complex distribution patterns that may increase their vulnerability to selective overfishing. This study investigated the day/night reef-use patterns in aExpand
Behavior and Ecology of Silky Sharks Around the Chagos Archipelago and Evidence of Indian Ocean Wide Movement
Silky sharks (Carcharhinus falciformis) represent a major component of global shark catch, both directly and as bycatch, and populations are declining as a result. An improved understanding of theirExpand

Hunt warm, rest cool: bioenergetic strategy underlying diel vertical migration of a benthic shark.
TLDR
These results provide the first clear evidence that are consistent with the hypothesis that a benthic marine-fish predator utilizes DVM as an energy conservation strategy that increases bioenergetic efficiency. Expand
Drivers of Daily Routines in an Ectothermic Marine Predator: Hunt Warm, Rest Warmer?
TLDR
Sharks may be most active during early evening periods as they have a sensory advantage under low light conditions and/or a thermal advantage over cooler prey and “Hunt warm, rest warmer” may help explain the early evening activity seen in other ectothermic predators. Expand
Quantifying movement patterns for shark conservation at remote coral atolls in the Indian Ocean
TLDR
This study used acoustic telemetry to determine movements and habitat use of grey reef sharks at the isolated Rowley Shoals atolls to provide baseline data that can be used to optimise the minimum area and habitat requirements for conservation of these apex predators. Expand
Fine-scale movement and activity patterns of Caribbean reef sharks (Carcharhinus perezi) in the Bahamas
TLDR
Assessment of the space use and activity levels of a marine predator, the Caribbean reef shark, in coastal regions of Eleuthera, The Bahamas over a 60-day period using acoustic telemetry indicated C. perezi primarily occupied the outer reef shelf and were rarely detected on the interior of the reef.

Temporal and spatial activity-associated energy partitioning in free-swimming sea snakes
TLDR
These findings illustrate for the first time how sea snakes partition activity-associated FMR across time and space, providing an approach by which to monitor the impacts of, and vulnerabilities to, natural and anthropogenic disturbances like warming and trawl fisheries. Expand
Resetting predator baselines in coral reef ecosystems
TLDR
The results indicate that the trophic structure of an unexploited reef fish community is not inverted, and that even healthy top predator populations may be considerably smaller, and more precarious, than previously thought. Expand
Movement models provide insights into variation in the foraging effort of central place foragers
Ecology and conservation depend on an understanding of how animals adjust their behaviour patterns in response to changes in their environment. Central place foragers (CPFs) are well-suited forExpand
Use of high-resolution acoustic cameras to study reef shark behavioral ecology
TLDR
High-resolution acoustic cameras are demonstrated as effective tools to study the ecology and behavior of reef and coastal sharks that operate in the vicinity of a near-pristine coral reef atoll. Expand
Modelled drift patterns of fish larvae link coastal morphology to seabird colony distribution
TLDR
These findings provide empirical corroboration of the hypothesis that seabird colonies are founded in locations that minimize travel distances between breeding and foraging locations, thereby enabling optimal foraging by central-place foragers. Expand
Extreme Inverted Trophic Pyramid of Reef Sharks Supported by Spawning Groupers
TLDR
This research demonstrates that fish spawning aggregations can play a significant role in the maintenance of local inverted pyramids in pristine marine areas and highlights that sharks may overcome low local energy availability by feeding on fish spawn aggregations, which concentrate energy from other local trophic pyramids.
