Garrone Neto et al. (2021) A small home range increases the vulnerability to fisheries of the ocellate river stingray, Potamotrygon motoro, in a biodiversity hotspot of the Neotropical region

Abstract In this study a telemetry-based approach was used to examine the movements and the habitat utilization of Potamotrygon motoro, a widespread species of potamotrygonid stingray of South America. The investigation included 13 individuals that were tagged with acoustic transmitters and manually monitored from March to September 2017 in the…

Observing post-release mortality for dusky sharks, Carcharhinus obscurus, captured in the U.S. pelagic longline fishery

Abstract The latest stock assessment for the dusky shark, Carcharhinus obscurus, in the western North Atlantic Ocean indicates the population is overfished and experiencing overfishing. As part of a rebuilding plan, the commercial and recreational retention of dusky sharks has been prohibited since 2000. Despite this prohibition, dusky sharks are…

Using data from nesting beach monitoring and satellite telemetry to improve estimates of marine turtle clutch frequency and population abundance

Abstract Population abundance data are often used to define species’ conservation status. Abundance of marine turtles is typically estimated using nesting beach monitoring data such as nest counts and clutch frequency (CF, i.e., the number of nests female turtles lay within a nesting season). However, studies have shown that CF…

Stopover behavior of Red-eyed Vireos (Vireo olivaceus) during fall migration on the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula

Abstract For migrating birds, stopover requires spending time and energy that otherwise could be allocated to flying. Thus, birds optimally refuel their subsequent migratory flight by reducing stopover duration or foraging activity in food-rich environments. In coastal habitats, birds may forego refueling and take short stopovers irrespective of local food…

Quantifying multiple breeding vital rates in two declining grassland songbirds Measurement of various vital reproductive rates in two declining prairie passerines

Abstract Many studies of reproductive success in North American songbirds have focused on nesting success, while relatively few have evaluated breeding-season adult survival and post-fledging survival. Grassland songbirds are among North America's most rapidly declining avian groups, and knowledge of factors that influence vital rates is needed to address declines,…

Northwest range shifts and shorter wintering period of an Arctic seabird in response to four decades of changing ocean climate

Abstract Climate change is altering the marine environment at a global scale, with some of  the most dramatic changes occurring in Arctic regions. These changes may affect the distribution and migration patterns of marine species throughout the annual cycle. Species distribution models have provided detailed understanding of the responses of…

Cruise Report 3S-2021 - Iceland Pilot study Trial

Trial Outcome Overall, the pilot study trial was very successful, with excellent tagging outcomes success and tracking including four sound playbacks completed – all primary objectives achieved successfully. The facilities at U Iceland and team were outstanding. Everyone was well, no injuries or sickness. No major equipment was damaged or…

Quantifying multiple breeding vital rates in two declining grassland songbirds

Abstract Many studies on the reproductive success of North American passerines have looked at nesting success, but relatively few studies have evaluated adult survival during the nesting period and survival after fledging. Prairie passerines are among the fastest declining bird groups in North America and knowledge of the factors that…

High-Throughput Tracking of Social Networks in Marine Fish Populations

Abstract Despite their potential to generate high-quality positioning data, the use of high-resolution acoustic telemetry systems (HRATS) has been neglected in coastal marine areas due to the limitations that these environments pose to the transmission of acoustic signals. In this work, we applied a HRATS and social network analysis (SNA)…
