Abstract

The use of early life stages of fishes (embryos and larvae) in toxicity testing has been in existence for a long time, generally utilizing endpoints such as morphological defects and mortality. Behavioural endpoints, however, may represent a more insightful evaluation of the ecological effects of...

Abstract

The short-term effects of tourist boats on the behaviour of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins Tursiops aduncus were investigated off the south coast of Zanzibar, Tanzania, by comparing dolphin group behaviour in the presence (impact) and absence (control) of tourist boats. Group-follows were...

Abstract

A study was conducted to determine the behaviour, ecology and effects of shipping activity of narwhals (Monodon monoceros) in Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada, during the summers of 2006-2008. It was shown that the average group size was 3.6 animals (2-25). Narwhals were sometimes segregated by sex ...
