    The second report, Marine Mammals and Low-Frequency Sound: Progress Since (NRC, ), primarily reviewed the marine mammal research conducted as part of the Acoustic Thermometry of Ocean Climate (ATOC) experiments. Both reports provided a suite of recommendations, many of which still apply and some of which will be reiterated in this report.   By Florence Sullivan, MSc. I first learned that “Marine Mammal Observer” was a legitimate career field during the summer after my junior year at the University of Washington. I had the good fortune to volunteer for the BASIS fisheries-oceanography survey onboard the R/V Oscar Dyson where I met two wonderful bird observers who taught me Continue reading . I use long-term hydrophone deployments (weeks to years), coupled with behavioral observations and field studies to better understand the marine acoustic habitat, how marine animals use sound, and to investigate human impacts on marine organismal behavior. My interests straddle bioacoustics, behavioral ecology, and education.

The Marine Mammal Laboratory, a division of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center, conducts research on whales, seals, sea lions and porpoises off the coasts of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California. We collect data on marine mammal behavior, population dynamics, life history, migration patterns, distribution, and trends in abundance.

Marine mammal ecology. Marine mammals represent a variety of ecological roles, including herbivores (manatees), filter feeders (baleen whales), and top predators (killer whales).Mammals evolved on land around million years ago. Each taxonomic marine mammal group evolved from a different group of land mammals, whose ancestors separately ventured back into the.

Marine mammal scientists are hired because of their skills as scientists, not because they like or want to work with marine mammals.

By presenting a conservation-biology approach and new and emerging technologies, this work helps provide crucial knowledge on the status of marine mammal.

About this book. A practical manual on how to deal with strandings of marine mammals. Chapters cover everything from dealing with the media, to specimen and data collection, field equipment, rehabilitation, and handling.

There are also species descriptions, with stranding frequency by region. Marine mammals face a large array of stressors, including loss of habitat, chemical and noise pollution, and bycatch in fishing, which alone kills hundreds of thousands of marine mammals per year globally. To discern the factors contributing to population trends, scientists must consider the full complement of threats faced by marine mammals.

Facilities for marine mammal work include five large pools and five smaller pools. The lab has housed a wide variety of marine mammals over the years, including Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, southern sea otters, California sea lions, a northern elephant seal, harbor seal, endangered Hawaiian monk seals, and Arctic ringed seals and spotted seals.

“This is a comprehensive text and critical review of the biology of marine mammals which incorporates, into a single volume, some of the most exciting developments that have taken place in the field over the last 20 years.

The field of marine mammal diving biochemistry was essentially untouched when Peter Hochachka turned his attention to it in the mids.

Over the next 30 years, his work followed three main themes in this area: first, most biologists at that time supported the theory that diving mammals utilized enhanced metabolic pathways for hypoxic energy .Graduate students in the MLML Vertebrate Ecology Lab study marine and estuarine birds, marine mammals, and sea turtles.
