Abstract

Daniel Zeh studied dugong movements and established proof of concept that acoustic technology provides results comparable to satellite/GPS in two dimensional space use and extends to three dimensional space use. He found evidence of behavioural thermoregulation and the existence of a possible dugong movement corridor, extending current knowledge of dugong behavioural ecology.
