  • Bouchard, Bertrand; Barnagaud, Jean-Yves; Poupard, Marion; Glotin, Hervé; Gauffier, Pauline; Torres Ortiz, Sara; Lisney, Thomas J.; Campagna, Sylvie; Rasmussen, Marianne; Célérier, Aurélie (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2019-02-26)
    Baleen whales face the challenge of finding patchily distributed food in the open ocean. Their relatively well-developed olfactory structures suggest that they could identify the specific odours given off by planktonic prey such as krill aggregations. ...
  • Lopes-Marques, Mónica; Machado, André M; Alves, Luís Q; Fonseca, Miguel M; Barbosa, Susana; Sinding, Mikkel-Holger S; Rasmussen, Marianne; Iversen, Maria Refsgaard; Frost Bertelsen, Mads; Campos, Paula F; da Fonseca, Rute; Ruivo, Raquel; Castro, L Filipe C (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2019-03-20)
    Genomes are dynamic biological units, with processes of gene duplication and loss triggering evolutionary novelty. The mammalian skin provides a remarkable case study on the occurrence of adaptive morphological innovations. Skin sebaceous glands (SGs), ...
  • Basran, CJ; Bertulli, CG; Cecchetti, A; Rasmussen, Marianne; Whittaker, M; Robbins, J (Inter-Research Science Center, 2019-02-07)
    Entanglement in fishing gear is a significant anthropogenic source of large whale injury and mortality. Although entanglements have been reported in the eastern North Atlantic, their frequency has not been previously estimated. This study used systematic ...

    Central place foraging theory (CPF) has been used to predict the optimal patch residence time for air-breathing marine predators in response to patch quality. Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) forage on densely aggregated prey, which may induce ...

    Non-breeding movement strategies of migratory birds may be expected to be flexibly adjusted to the distribution and quality of habitat, but few studies compare movement strategies among populations using distinct migration routes and wintering areas. ...
  • Samarra, Filipa; Bassoi, Manuela; Béesau, Julie; Elíasdóttir, Margrét Ó.; Gunnarsson, Karl; Mrusczok, Marie-Thérèse; Rasmussen, Marianne; Rempel, Jonathan N.; Þorvaldsson, Baldur; Víkingsson, Gísli (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2018-12-12)
    Killer whales have a cosmopolitan distribution and as a species are generalists, feeding on a variety of prey. However, local populations tend to specialise on specific prey types. In Icelandic waters, killer whales are generally associated with herring ...
  • Magnúsdóttir, Edda; Lim, Rangyn (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2019-01-23)
    Humpback whale songs associated with breeding behaviors are increasingly reported outside of traditional low latitude breeding grounds. Songs from a subarctic feeding ground during the winter were quantitatively characterized to investigate the structure ...
