The Sequeira Lab is excited to report that our PhD candidate Hannah Calich has now passed the viva voce for her thesis entitled ‘Describing animal movement with statistical physics methods: insights into the ecology and physiology of migratory sharks’.
Sneak peek into the Research Topic “Towards a Sustainable Ocean”
The Sequeira Lab leader, Dr Ana Sequeira, has been part of a team of editors on a Research Topic about the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 - Life Below Water: Towards a Sustainable Ocean published in Frontiers in Marine Science.
New paper assessing how much tracking data biases affect species distribution models
Dr Ana Sequeira and Dr Malcolm O’Toole have led a newly published paper on tracking marine animals published in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution. The study Quantifying effects of tracking data bias on species distribution models used simulation data emulating the movement of marine predators to test the effects of different types of tracking data when developing species distribution models.
