New Blainville’s beaked whale paper

Check out a new paper from BMMRO on echolocation in mother-calf pairs of Blainville’s beaked whales. In short, this study provides novel insight into the vocal behavior of mothers when accompanied by calves and suggests that neonates┬ádive with their mothers during foraging. See full paper here.

Ryann Rossi
My general research interests lie in the ecology of marine coastal ecosystems. I am most interested in the role plant diseases have in shaping the ecology of coastal and estuarine environments. I am currently studying the role of a plant pathogen in a die-off of Red Mangroves in The Bahamas. Follow Ryann Rossi
