Habitat use and home range studies provide some of the most basic and essential data for understanding an animal’s behavioral ecology. Such studies are also critical for effective management and wildlife protection, but difficult to conduct in marine environments. Here we investigate habitat use, home ranges, and their relationship to sex and seasonality for one of the best-studied populations of wild bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops sp.). Consistent with previous research, we find marked… Expand
