ME34A:
Biologging Ecology and Oceanography: Integrative Approaches to Animal-Borne Observations in a Changing Ocean II Posters

Session ID#: 85394

Session Description:
Animal-borne tags are increasingly capable of measuring oceanographic conditions as well as animal behaviors and vital rates in situ. These biologging sensors are particularly valuable for the study of marine animals where direct behavioral observation is often impossible. Understanding behavioral patterns and vital rates are long-standing research objectives because they can inform an array of critical biological and ecological questions such as estimated energy budgets and energetic costs of certain behaviors. Such data is particularly important as animals increasingly face a changing environment. Additionally, the identification of occurrence rate, timing, and locations of critical behavioral states (e.g., reproductive activity or movement patterns) and community interactions (e.g., predator-prey) are crucial for proper species management. As such, biologging tools can support informed management of ecosystems and their resources, and is particularly valuable for commercial, recreational, or culturally important species. New tool and sensor advances are allowing us to study animal-bourne oceanography and habitats with increasing resolution, from new perspectives and on more taxa than ever before. We invite presentations that include all aspects of biologging science including oceanographic observations, behavioral ecology, physiology and tool development. We particularly encourage new and innovative research approaches, insights and integrative science.
