  • Miller, Patrick J. O. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2000-09)
    This thesis presents data on the structure and use of acoustic signals produced by free-ranging resident killer whales. The analysis focuses on signal features that might be useful for animals to maintain contact and ...
  • Weinstein, Michael P.; Baird, Ronald C.; Conover, David O.; Gross, Matthias; Keulartz, Jozef; Loomis, David K.; Naveh, Zev; Peterson, Susan B.; Reed, Denise J.; Roe, Emery; Swanson, R. Lawrence; Swart, Jacques A. A.; Teal, John M.; Turner, R. Eugene; van der Windt, Henny J.; International Working Group on Sustainability (Ecological Society of America, 2007-01)
    Coastal ecosystems are increasingly dominated by humans. Consequently, the human dimensions of sustainability science have become an integral part of emerging coastal governance and management practices. But if we are to ...
  • Miksis-Olds, Jennifer L.; Tyack, Peter L. (Acoustical Society of America, 2009-03)
    Noise can interfere with acoustic communication by masking signals that contain biologically important information. Communication theory recognizes several ways a sender can modify its acoustic signal to compensate for ...
  • Ketten, Darlene R.; Cramer, Scott R.; Arruda, Julie (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-01)
    This chapter is intended as an instructional guide for the removal, fixation and preservation of auditory system tissues of marine mammals. Each section describes procedures for a major ear type for marine mammals. The ...
  • Anderson, Donald M.; Galloway, Sylvia B.; Joseph, Jeanne D. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-01)
    Marine biotoxins and harmful algae represent a significant and expanding threat to human health and fisheries resources throughout the U.S. This problem takes many forms, ranging from massive "red tides" or blooms of cells ...
  • Pugliares, Katie R.; Bogomolni, Andrea L.; Touhey, Kathleen M.; Herzig, Sarah M.; Harry, Charles T.; Moore, Michael J. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2007-09)
    This necropsy manual is designed to establish a base level of profiency in marine mammal necropsy techniques. It is written for stranding network members who do not have a formal pathobiological training and have limited ...
  • White, Angelicque E.; Dyhrman, Sonya T. (Frontiers Media, 2013-05-21)
    Phosphorus, the 13th element to be discovered on our planet, has a rich and varied history spanning match-making, bombs, fertilizer, and pesticides. Entire islands economies (Nauru) have collapsed in the mad hunt for ...
  • Ji, Rubao; Edwards, Martin; Mackas, David L.; Runge, Jeffrey A.; Thomas, Andrew C. (Oxford University Press, 2010-06-07)
    Increasing availability and extent of biological ocean time series (from both in situ and satellite data) have helped reveal significant phenological variability of marine plankton. The extent to which the range of this ...
  • Moore, Michael J.; Gast, Rebecca J.; Bogomolni, Andrea L. (Inter-Research, 2008-08-19)
    The role of marine birds, mammals, turtles and fish as vectors of infectious agents of potential risk to humans can be examined from a variety of perspectives. The studies in this DAO Special include a broad survey of ...
  • Hill, M. Forrest; Witman, Jon D.; Caswell, Hal (University of Chicago Press, 2004-07-01)
    We present a Markov chain model of succession in a rocky subtidal community based on a long-term (1986–1994) study of subtidal invertebrates (14 species) at Ammen Rock Pinnacle in the Gulf of Maine. The model describes ...
  • White, J. Wilson; Standish, Julie D.; Thorrold, Simon R.; Warner, Robert R. (Ecological Society of America, 2008-12)
    Geochemical signatures deposited in otoliths are a potentially powerful means of identifying the origin and dispersal history of fish. However, current analytical methods for assigning natal origins of fish in mixed-stock ...
  • Fujiwara, Masami (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2002-06)
    Mark-recapture analysis of populations is becoming an important tool in population biology. Mark-recapture methods can be used to estimate transition probabilities among life-stages from capture histories of marked ...
  • Jenouvrier, Stephanie; Caswell, Hal; Barbraud, Christophe; Weimerskirch, Henri (University of Chicago Press, 2010-04-21)
    We present a new approach to modeling two‐sex populations, using periodic, nonlinear two‐sex matrix models. The models project the population growth rate, the population structure, and any ratio of interest (e.g., operational ...
  • Caswell, Hal (Springer, 2011-06-14)
    Matrix population models in which individuals are classified by both age and stage can be constructed using the vec-permutation matrix. The resulting age-stage models can be used to derive the age-specific consequences of ...
  • Chu, Dezhang; Wiebe, Peter H. (2004-12-11)
    Sound-speed and density contrasts (h and g, respectively), two important acoustic material properties, of live zooplankton were measured off the western Antarctic Peninsula during a Southern Ocean GLOBEC cruise conducted ...
  • Tsukrov, Igor; DeCew, Judson C.; Baldwin, Kenneth C.; Campbell-Malone, Regina; Moore, Michael J. (2009-03-11)
    In an effort to better understand the mechanics of ship-whale collision and to reduce the associated mortality of the critically endangered North Atlantic right whale, a comprehensive biomechanical study has been conducted ...
  • Hestermann, Eli V. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1999-12)
    Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) expression and activity was characterized in the teleost hepatoma cell line, PLHC-1. This work was carried out in order to gain insights into mechanisms of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbon ...
  • McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Anderson, Donald M.; Lynch, Daniel R.; Townsend, David W. (2005-04-27)
    Observations of Alexandrium fundyense in the Gulf of Maine indicate several salient characteristics of the vegetative cell distributions: patterns of abundance are gulf-wide in geographic scope; their main features occur ...
  • Hahn, Mark E. (2011-05-31)
    On the thirtieth anniversary of the journal, I provide a perspective on some of the questions and opportunities for new understanding that will interest aquatic toxicologists during the next thirty years. I focus on ...
  • Maas, Amy E.; Wishner, Karen F.; Seibel, Brad A. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2012-02-15)
    Shelled pteropods (Thecosomata) are a group of holoplanktonic mollusks that are believed to be especially sensitive to ocean acidification because their aragonitic shells are highly soluble. Despite this concern, there is ...
