A Blog Around The Clock

Yup, that was going to be the title of this post. I got the paper and was ready to write the post when I noticed that Peter scooped me and posted about the same paper today (yup, there is just not that many cool papers on Charismatic Marine Megavertebrates to spread around this week). I have nothing to add, so just go and see his post:

The results demonstrated that a free-ranging whale shark displays ultradian, diel and circa-lunar rhythmicity of diving behaviour. Whale sharks dive to over 979.5 m, making primarily diurnal deep dives and remaining in relatively shallow waters at night.

    Oops on the scoops, Coturnix. You would have done a much better job teasing apart the circadian rhythms oh whale sharks.

    We obviously need more cool papers on Charismatic Marine Megavertebrates!
