- Incorporating diverse data and realistic complexity into demographic estimation procedures for sea ottersM Tim Tinker
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Center for Ocean Health, 100 Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz 95060, USA
Ecol Appl 16:2293-312. 2006..More broadly, we have illustrated how the powerful and relatively straightforward tools of information-theoretic-based model fitting can be used to sort through and parameterize quite complex demographic modeling frameworks...
- Food limitation leads to behavioral diversification and dietary specialization in sea ottersM Tim Tinker
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Center for Ocean Health, 100 Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz, CA 95060, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:560-5. 2008..Individuality in foraging behavior adds complexity to both the fitness consequences of prey selection and food web dynamics, and it may figure prominently as a diversifying process over evolutionary timescales...
- Using demography and movement behavior to predict range expansion of the southern sea otterM Tim Tinker
U S Geological Survey, Western Ecological Research Center, Long Marine Laboratory, 100 Shaffer Road, Santa Cruz, California 95060, USA
Ecol Appl 18:1781-94. 2008..Our approach provides guidance for the acquisition of further data and a means of forecasting the consequence of specific management actions. Similar methods could aid in the management of other recovering populations...
