Predicting the population consequences of acoustic disturbance, with application to an endangered gray whale population

Elizabeth McHuron, Elizabeth McHuron, Lisanne Aerts, Glenn Gailey, Olga Sychenko, Daniel Costa, Marc Mangel & Lisa Schwarz
Acoustic disturbance is a growing conservation concern for wildlife populations because it can elicit physiological and behavioral responses that can have cascading impacts on population dynamics. State-dependent behavioral and life history models implemented via Stochastic Dynamic Programming (SDP) provide a natural framework for quantifying biologically meaningful population changes resulting from disturbance by linking environment, physiology, and metrics of fitness. We developed an SDP model using the endangered western gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) as a case...
