      Open Access
      The installation of marine renewable energy devices (MREDs, wind turbines and converters of wave, tidal and ocean thermal energy) has increased quickly in the last decade. There is a lack of knowledge concerning the effects ...
    • Marine mammal acoustic detections in the Greenland and Barents Sea, 2013 – 2014 seasons

      Article
      Open Access
      While the Greenland and Barents Seas are known habitats for several cetacean and pinniped species there is a lack of long-term monitoring data in this rapidly changing environment. Moreover, little is known of the ambient ...
    • Marine mammals stranding: guidelines for post-mortem investigations of cetaceans & pinnipeds

      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Università degli Studi di Padova
      While marine, anthropogenic noise pollution is a scientific and societal matter of concern, there is limited knowledge on how sea animals, particularly cetaceans, perceive their environment through sounds. Toothed whales, ...
    • Morphological evidence for the sensitivity of the ear canal of odontocetes as shown by immunohistochemistry and transmission electron microscopy 

      Vreese, Steffen de; André, Michel; Cozzi, Bruno; Centelleghe, Cinzia; Van der Schaar, Mike Connor Roger Malcolm; Mazzariol, Sandro (Nature, 2020-03-06)
      Article
      Open Access
      The function of the external ear canal in cetaceans is still under debate and its morphology is largely unknown. Immunohistochemical (IHC) analyses using antibodies specific for nervous tissue (anti-S100, anti-NSE, anti-NF, ...
    • Morphology of the external ear canal in toothed whales 

      Vreese, Steffen de; André, Michel; Mazzariol, Sandro (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2019-07)
      Article
      Open Access
      Like all mammals, toothed whales possess an outer, middle, and inner ear, all of which present major evolutionary adaptations to underwater hearing. Moreover, the development of acoustical fat bodies, which collect and ...
