Robinson P. 2021. 2011 Female Northern Elephant Seals. Data downloaded from OBIS-SEAMAP (http://seamap.env.duke.edu/dataset/724) on yyyy-mm-dd and originated from Satellite Tracking and Analysis Tool (STAT; http://www.seaturtle.org/tracking/index.shtml?project_id=573).
Dan Costa's Lab at the University of California Santa Cruz is engaged in a long-term tracking study of northern elephant seals at Ano Nuevo State Reserve. With the help of many graduate students and collaborators, we are investigating a diversity of topics including: habitat-use, foraging ecology, fine-scale behavior, toxin loading, diving physiology, climate change, and ontogeny.
We have a diverse team, but welcome additional collaborators. Please contact us if you have interesting ideas for analyses
