Marine animals have developed numerous behavioural adaptations to life in the ocean. Studying these behaviours, however, can be challenging. Cetaceans spend a large part of their lives under water, are often difficult to find across the vast ocean, and their behaviour may change in response to the presence of the observer. Hence many fundamental aspects of cetacean behaviour remain unknown. Fleur Visser’s PhD thesis combines newly developed observational methods and recent advances in technology to study cetacean behaviour. This approach allows for investigation of the social context of individual behaviour and analysis of migratory behaviour in relation to large-scale ocean dynamics.
