Interpreting diel activity patterns from acoustic telemetry : the need for controls

  title={Interpreting diel activity patterns from acoustic telemetry : the need for controls},
  author={Nicholas L Payne and Bronwyn M Gillanders and Dale Mitchell Webber and Jayson M Semmens},
Acoustic telemetry has emerged as a leading approach to infer diel, tidal and lunar rhythmicity in the movements of aquatic organisms in a range of taxa. Typically, studies examine the relative frequency of detections from individuals tagged with acoustic transmitters, and then infer patterns in the species’ behaviour, but studies to date have not controlled for factors that may influence tag detection patterns in the absence of animal behaviour. We compared patterns in acoustic detections from… CONTINUE READING
