Nuuttila, Hanna K.; Brundiers, Katharina; Dähne, Michael; Koblitz, Jens C.; Thomas, Len; Courtene‐Jones, Winnie; Evans, Peter G. H.; Turner, John R.; Bennell, Jim D.; Hiddink, Jan G.
Methods in Ecology and Evolution (2018)

Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is used for many vocal species. However, few studies have quantified the fraction of vocalisations captured, and how animal distance and sound source level affect detection…


Acoustic monitoring reveals the times and tides of harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) distribution off central Oregon, U.S.A.

Holdman, Amanda K.; Haxel, Joseph H.; Klinck, Holger; Torres, Leigh G.
Marine Mammal Science (2018)

Harbor porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) are commonly observed in Oregon's nearshore marine environment yet knowledge of their ecosystem use and behavior remains limited, generating concerns for potential impacts on this species…
