HMSC Research Seminar-Foraging synchrony drives resilience in human-dolphin mutualism

Speaker: Mauricio Cantor, Assistant Professor, Marine Mammal Institute, Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center

Topic: Foraging synchrony drives resilience in human-dolphin mutualism

The behavioural and ecological links from individual animals, to populations to communities are diverse and dynamic. Understanding these linkages can help us to predict how natural systems cope with environmental changes. One way to do so is by combining fine-scale behaviour, long-term population dynamics and theoretical models. In this seminar, I will focus on the behavioural mechanisms of an intriguing cooperative system in which wild dolphins and artisanal fishers forage together to catch mullet fish. I will then zoom out and evaluate how knowledge about this ecological interaction, linking populations of two predators and their common prey, can inform us about the resilience of the socio-ecosystem they form together.
