Marine mammals feed at multiple trophic levels and occur from freshwater to open-ocean ecosystems of all latitudes. Due to their abundance, large-scale movements, and high metabolic rates, they have the potential to affect the structure and function of ecosystems from both top-down and bottom-up pathways.
With National Geographic, Mike helped other scientists by deploying “Crittercam” on humpback whales, pilot whales, false killer whales, and bowhead whales. Recently, the lab started a study of deep-diving species in the Caribbean.
We conduct research on dolphins in Shark Bay, Western Australia and the coastal Everglades.
