Predicting prey capture rates of southern elephant seals from track and dive parameters

Abstract

In the marine environment, track and dive parameter data (obtained using Argos or GPS tags and time–depth recorders) are commonly used to provide proxies for foraging behaviour of marine predators. However, their accuracy is rarely assessed. Recently, the addition of headmounted accelerometers has allowed for detection of prey capture attempts (PCAs) at sea… (More)
