Description

Our work includes conducting research on the status-of-stocks of the cetacean, marine turtle, and pinniped populations influenced by anthropogenic factors in the Pacific Ocean, primarily the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean and the California Current. We also maintain research programs that focus on (1) estimators of relative and absolute abundance, condition, and replacement rates; (2) decision making in a conservation management context; (3) population and molecular genetics of intraspecific structure; (4) remote sensing involving infrared thermography, acoustics, radio, and satellite telemetry, and photogrammetry; (5) ecological habitat use patterns; and (6) impacts of anthropogenic sounds. All of these studies involve the development of methodologies and specific management problems of species from the high Arctic, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of California, and Southern Ocean. Because of the large-scale and long-term nature of our research problems, proposals outlining analytical and synthetic studies of long-term data would be especially appropriate for an Associate.
