  1. pmc Killer whales are capable of vocal learning
    Andrew D Foote
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, Durham DH1 3LE, UK
    Biol Lett 2:509-12. 2006
    ..We also find differences in call usage (compared to the natal pod) that may reflect the absence of a repertoire model from tutors or some unknown effect related to isolation or context...
  2. pmc Mortality rate acceleration and post-reproductive lifespan in matrilineal whale species
    Andrew D Foote
    Lighthouse Field Station, School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen, George Street, Cromarty IV11 8YJ, UK
    Biol Lett 4:189-91. 2008
    ..Selection for a long post-reproductive female lifespan in matrilineal whales may therefore be determined by the proportion of females surviving past the point of reproductive cessation...
  3. doi Variation in call pitch among killer whale ecotypes
    Andrew D Foote
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, Durham, DH1 3LE, United Kingdom
    J Acoust Soc Am 123:1747-52. 2008
    ..The resident ecotype produced calls with a significantly higher F(min) and F(peak) than the transient ecotype. This could be to reduce detection by their salmonid prey, which has a narrow band, low frequency auditory range...
  4. ncbi Ecological, morphological and genetic divergence of sympatric North Atlantic killer whale populations
    Andrew D Foote
    Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Cromarty, UK
    Mol Ecol 18:5207-17. 2009
    ..This first step to divergent specialization on different ecological resources provides a rare example of the ecological conditions at the early stages of adaptive radiation...
  5. doi Genetic differentiation among North Atlantic killer whale populations
    Andrew D Foote
    Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Aberdeen, School of Biological Sciences, Tillydrone Avenue, Aberdeen, UK
    Mol Ecol 20:629-41. 2011
    ..These results demonstrate that genetic differentiation can arise through resource specialization in the absence of physical barriers to gene flow...
  6. ncbi Environment: whale-call response to masking boat noise
    Andrew D Foote
    School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, University of Durham, Durham DH1 3LE, UK
    Nature 428:910. 2004
    ..This result indicates that these whales adjust their behaviour to compensate for anthropogenic noise once it reaches a threshold level...
