Unique Post-telemetry Recapture Enables Development of Multi-Element Isoscapes From Barnacle Shell for Retracing Host Movement

Many ecological investigations rely on understanding the movement of animals through marine environments. Most available tracking techniques are invasive (e.g., tissue sampling) and require extensive

A Global Synthesis of the Correspondence Between Epizoic Barnacles and Their Sea Turtle Hosts

It is paradoxical that the flexibility of barnacles for multiple host species contrasts with their overall strict specificity for sea turtles, with each symbiont occupying a virtually unique suite of turtle hosts.

Epibiotic Fauna on Cetaceans Worldwide: A Systematic Review of Records and Indicator Potential

An updated review of all records of associations between cetaceans and their epibiotic fauna and provides information on the use as an indicator species in the literature, if any, and about other relevant traits, such as geographic range, host specificity, genetic data, and life-cycle.

Gaseous Plastron on Natural and Biomimetic Surfaces for Resisting Marine Biofouling

This review focused on the research progress of gaseous plastron and its antifouling applications and inspired the development of novel theories and strategies toward resisting biofouling formation on different surfaces.



A review of ecogeochemistry approaches to estimating movements of marine animals

Ecogeochemistry—the application of geochemical techniques to fundamental questions in population and community ecology—has been used in animal migration studies in terrestrial environments for

Distinguishing between sea turtle foraging areas using stable isotopes from commensal barnacle shells

A novel method is used that combines barnacle growth rates and stable isotope analysis of barnacle shells (δ18O and δ13C) as predictors of home area for foraging sea turtles based on isotope ratios from the shells of the barnacles that were attached to them.

Stable isotopes in barnacles as a tool to understand green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas) regional movement patterns

Barnacle proxies could complement other methods in understanding regional movement patterns, informing more effective conservation policy that takes into account connectivity between populations.

Oxygen and carbon isoscapes for the Baltic Sea: Testing their applicability in fish migration studies

An example of how isoscapes can reveal locations of individual animal via spatial probability surface maps, using the high‐resolution salmon otolith isotope data from salmon during their sea‐feeding phase in the Baltic Sea, demonstrates that dual isotope approach offers great potential for estimating probable fish habitats once issues in model parameterization have been resolved.

Reconstructing the lives of fish using Sr isotopes in otoliths

Micromilling techniques are used to extract strontium (Sr) isotopic signatures from the otoliths of four returning Atlantic salmon adults to provide insight into a long-standing debate on the mobility of salmon during their nonmigratory stage.

Identifying migrations in marine fishes through stable-isotope analysis.

The theoretical background underpinning the use of stable isotopes of C, N and O in otolith, scale and muscle tissues as geolocation tools in the marine environment is reviewed, and examples of their applications are provided.

Combining microvolume isotope analysis and numerical simulation to reproduce fish migration history

Tracking the movement of migratory fish is of great importance for efficient conservation, although this has been technically difficult to achieve in small fish to which artificial tags cannot be

Key Questions in Marine Megafauna Movement Ecology.

Realignment of sea turtle isotope studies needed to match conservation priorities

This is the first review of sea turtle isotope studies and helps to refocus future isotope research to prioritise conservation outcomes throughout the world.

Global analysis of satellite tracking data shows that adult green turtles are significantly aggregated in Marine Protected Areas

Aim Tracking technologies are often proposed as a method to elucidate the complex migratory life histories of migratory marine vertebrates, allowing spatially explicit threats to be identified and
