Out of Habitat - Marine Mammal
Moore, Michael J.
MetadataShow full item record
This is a primer on factors to consider when dealing with marine mammals that are found in unexpected areas such as in river inlets.
The exact approach for dealing with such situations will be case-specific and multiple factors have to be considered before a decision can be made to return animals to offshore waters. Expert advice must be sought and appropriate permissions obtained.

Diving behavior and fine-scale kinematics of free-ranging Risso's dolphins foraging in shallow and deep-water habitats Arranz, Patricia; Benoit-Bird, Kelly J.; Friedlaender, Ari S.; Hazen, Elliott L.; Goldbogen, Jeremy A.; Stimpert, Alison K.; DeRuiter, Stacy L.; Calambokidis, John; Southall, Brandon L.; Fahlman, Andreas; Tyack, Peter L. (Frontiers Media, 2019-03-12)Air-breathing marine predators must balance the conflicting demands of oxygen conservation during breath-hold and the cost of diving and locomotion to capture prey. However, it remains poorly understood how predators ...
Larval responses to turbulence and temperature in a tidal inlet: Habitat selection by dispersing gastropods? Fuchs, Heidi L.; Solow, Andrew R.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2010-06)Marine larval dispersal is affected by hydrodynamic transport and larval behavior, but little is known about how behavior affects large-scale patterns of dispersal and recruitment. Intertidal habitats are characterized by ...
Mills, Susan W.; Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Tyler, Paul A. (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2007-06)At deep-sea hydrothermal vents on the East Pacific Rise (9°50'N), distinct megafaunal assemblages are positioned along strong thermal and chemical gradients. We investigated the distribution of gastropod species to determine ...
