Data from the IMOS Animal Tracking infrastructure is highlighted in a special issue of Marine and Freshwater Research
The special issue showcases the important role that acoustic telemetry plays in the management of aquatic systems across Australia, and highlights how the IMOS acoustic telemetry network helps to achieve this.
Tracking technologies have given scientists and authorities new tools to aid in the quest for people and sharks to peacefully coexist.
A recent study examined how female elephant seals adjust their expenditure with respect to prevailing environmental conditions, and demonstrates that seal mothers give more to their pup when conditions are favourable and less...
This southern summer, IMOS Animal Tracking Facility scientist Clive McMahon and his team intend to tag 15–20 seals at Davis research station in Antarctica. These animals will carry state-of-the-art oceanographic tags for a year,...
Elephant seals tagged by IMOS have helped scientists to discover that fresh water from Antarctica’s melting ice shelves slows the production of powerful deep-water ocean currents responsible for regulating global temperatures.
Modern tracking technology and international collaboration have given IMAS researchers and their colleagues from eight countries unprecedented new insights into the life, behaviour and distribution of southern elephant seals.
IMOS Animal tracking observations reveal that groupings of spotted wobbegong sharks, once thought to be chance occurrences, are now believed to reflect far more complex social relationships.
