Elephant seal foraging dives track prey distribution, not temperature: Comment on McIntyre et al. (2011)

Abstract:

McIntyre et al. (2011; Mar Ecol Prog Ser 441:257-272) concluded that climate change-related ocean warming may lead to deeper foraging dives by southern elephant seals as their prey is forced into deeper depths. They further assert that fitness for the seals will be reduced because of greater physiological costs for deep dives and the assumption that deep foraging is less successful. Their conclusions are based on an observed correlation between a temperature index and elephant seal diving dep...
