Computer-Assisted Photo-Identification of Narwhals
Although the narwhal (Monodon monoceros) is economically and culturally important to northern residents, sound management of this species is impaired by large gaps in knowledge. Research on this species has been limited ...
Behavioral reactions of northern bottlenose whales (Hyperoodon ampullatus) to biopsy darting and tag attachment procedures
The effects of invasive or intrusive research techniques need to be thoroughly documented in order to satisfy appropriate standards of animal care. How cetaceans react to either biopsy darting ol tag attachment procedures ...
Inferring Animal Densities from Tracking Data Using Markov Chains
The distributions and relative densities of species are keys to ecology. Large amounts of tracking data are being collected on a wide variety of animal species using several methods, especially electronic tags that record ...
