Diving animals offer a unique opportunity to study the importance of physiological constraint in their everyday behaviors. An important component of the physiological capability of any diving animal is its aerobic dive limit (ADL). The ADL has only been measured in a few species. The goal of this study was to estimate the aerobic dive limit from measurements of body oxygen stores and at sea metabolism. This calculated ADL (cADL) was then compared to measurements of diving behavior of individual… Expand
When does physiology limit the foraging behaviour of freely diving mammals
TLDR
Analysis of the interaction between physiology and behaviour and its impact on the diving capability of five eared seal species reveals that seals which forage benthically have a greater tendency to approach or exceed their ADL compared to seals that forage epipelagically. Expand
Physiological constraints and energetic costs of diving behaviour in marine mammals: a review of studies using trained Steller sea lions diving in the open ocean
TLDR
These studies show that the type of diving, the level of underwater activity, the depth and duration of dives, and the nutritional status and physical condition of the animal affect the cost of diving and foraging and demonstrate that changes in prey abundance and nutritional status cause sea lions to alter the balance between time spent at the surface acquiring oxygen and time at depth acquiring prey. Expand
Ontogeny of oxygen stores and physiological diving capability in Australian sea lions
TLDR
Both dive depth and duration appear impacted by the slow development of oxygen stores in Australian sea lions, which has the slowest documented O2 store development among diving mammals. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that to avoid continued confusion between these two terms, the former is called diving lactate threshold (DLT), as it is somewhat analogous to the lactatereshold in exercising terrestrial vertebrates. Expand
Metabolic rates of captive grey seals during voluntary diving
TLDR
A model that allows the prediction of DMR from information on dive behaviour of the type routinely collected in telemetry studies of wild seals to be developed, and accurately predicts DMR using behavioural data from periods of diving with known metabolism data is developed. Expand
Diverse foraging strategies in lactating New Zealand sea lions
TLDR
The foraging behaviour of female NZ sea lions that use these 2 distinct dive profiles are compared and it is discussed how the 2 foraging patterns may indicate differing prey choice, as well as their possible implications for individual reproductive ability and interactions with fisheries and, therefore, species demographics. Expand
Regional variability in diving physiology and behavior in a widely distributed air-breathing marine predator, the South American sea lion (Otaria byronia)
TLDR
The study suggests that the physiology of air-breathing diving predators is not fixed, but that it can be adjusted, to a certain extent, depending on the ecological setting and or habitat. Expand
Respiration and Diving Physiology
TLDR
It is suggested that the walrus is capable of deep dives but has little reason to do so because of the availability of its prey in shallow water, and smaller phocid seals exceed the diving and breath-holding capacities of most whales. Expand
Extreme diving in mammals: first estimates of behavioural aerobic dive limits in Cuvier's beaked whales
TLDR
It is suggested that Cuvier's beaked whales have low metabolic rates, high oxygen storage capacities and a high acid-buffering capacity to deal with the by-products of both aerobic and anaerobic metabolism, which enables them to extend dive durations and exploit their bathypelagic foraging habitats. Expand
High diving metabolism results in a short aerobic dive limit for Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus)
TLDR
This study is the first to estimate cADL based on direct measures of VO2 and blood oxygen stores for an Otariid and indicates they have a much shorter ADL than previously thought. Expand

Interspecific allometric comparisons of dive durations in endothermic divers showed that, in general, relative diveDurations in seabirds were greater than in pinnip... Expand
THE AEROBIC SUBMERSION LIMIT OF BAIKAL SEALS, PHOCA SIBIRICA
TLDR
This work measured post-submergence plasma lactate concentrations during spontaneous voluntary submersions of three captive adult Baikal seals and determined a calculated aerobic limit, very similar to the theoretical limit. Expand
Swimming speed and allocation of time during the dive cycle in Antarctic fur seals
During sustained bouts of diving, predators such as fur seals may adjust the time they spend diving to maximize the time they can spend foraging and minimize the time spent at the surface betweenExpand
Convective oxygen transport and tissue oxygen consumption in Weddell seals during aerobic dives.
TLDR
The model shows that the cardiovascular adjustments known as the dive response enable the diving seal to balance the conflicting metabolic demands of optimizing the distribution and use of blood and muscle oxygen stores to maximize the ADL over the normal range of diving VO2 and ensuring that active muscle receives adequate oxygen as VMO2 increases.

Allometry of diving capacity in air-breathing vertebrates
TLDR
The diving capacities of penguins had the highest correlations with body mass, and many of the smaller taxonomic groups also had a strong allometric relationship between diving capacity (maximum depth and duration) and body mass. Expand
Foraging Energetics of Antartic Fur Seals in Relation to Changes in Prey Availability
TLDR
The similarity between years in mass increase suggests that females do not return to feed their pups until they replenish their own reserves, which contrasts with northern fur seals, Callorhinus ursinus, which typically spend 17% of their time at sea inactive. Expand
Diving patterns of California sea lions, Zalophus californianus
TLDR
The diving patterns of 10 adult female California sea lions were examined during the summer breeding season on San Miguel Island, California, in 1982 and 1983 using time–depth recorders to suggest cost–benefit considerations based on prey availability and encounter rate may be more important than physiological limits in shaping the foraging patterns of Zalophus.

The metabolic characteristics of the locomotory muscles of grey seals (Halichoerus grypus), harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) and Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella).
TLDR
Results show that, while pinniped muscle has an increased oxygen storage potential compared with the muscle of a typical terrestrial mammal, there are no distinct adaptations for diving in the enzyme pathways or fibre type distributions of the pinnipes muscle. Expand

TLDR
The mean aerobic dive limit (ADL) for Weddell seals was calculated from data collected on diving metabolic rates (V̇o2) and blood and muscle O₂ stores and total blood O2 stores were 50% greater than those used in past ADL calculations. Expand
