IS001:
Advances in approaches to monitoring the occurrence, distribution, behavior, and ecology of top predators


Session ID#: 27549

Session Description:
Unlike most marine organisms, top predators can be monitored in the field as individuals, providing unique insight into behavioral strategies that influence the status and dynamics of populations.  Tremendous technological and methodological progress has been made in marine animal detection, tagging, and tracking in the past decade, and this session seeks to gather researchers to share new insights into both top predator ecology and physiology gleaned from these state-of-the-art approaches.  We encourage researchers working with autonomous platforms, passive acoustics, bio-logging, satellite telemetry, remote monitoring technologies, and other advanced methods to participate and present their latest results.
