Alex Smith co-authored a paper recently published in PLOS ONE.

Senior Associate Alex Smith co-authored “Influence of Manatees’ Diving on Their Risk of Collision with Watercraft,” recently published in PLOS ONE, a multidisciplinary scientific journal.

The paper—written from research conducted during Alex’s tenure at Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission—focuses on the diving behavior of nine manatees living in the waters near Tampa Bay. It is the first documentation of potential cost-efficient diving behavior in manatees, and found that quantitative approaches to assessing the risk can improve the effectiveness of manatee conservation measures by helping identify areas for protection.
