...Paul J. Ponganis; Birgitte I. McDonald; Michael S. Tift; Cassondra L. Williams ABSTRACT Recent publications have emphasized the potential generation of morbid cardiac arrhythmias secondary to autonomic conflict in diving marine mammals. Such conflict, as typified by cardiovascular responses to cold...

...Birgitte I. McDonald; Paul J. Ponganis SUMMARY The management and depletion of O 2 stores underlie the aerobic dive capacities of marine mammals. The California sea lion ( Zalophus californianus ) presumably optimizes O 2 store management during all dives, but approaches its physiological limits...

However, because of predictable changes in buoyancy with depth,individuals would also be expected to adjust dive behavior according to dive depth. To test...

... foraging. However, empirical data indicate that the body angles of some diving animals are rarely vertical during descent and ascent. Why do they choose shallower body angles that result in longer descent and ascent durations? To investigate this question, we attached acceleration data loggers to eight...

... costs in a free-ranging marine mammal, we measured the post-dive oxygen consumption of adult Weddell seals ( N =9) performing foraging and non-foraging dives from an isolated ice hole in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. Dives were classified according to behavior as monitored by an attached video-data logging...
