Figure 2

Detection proportion profiles for high-powered V16-6H tags in three contrasting study system: Jupiter, Florida (an exposed sub-tropical reef), Lake Charlotte, Nova Scotia (a freshwater temperate lake), and Cumberland Sound, Nunavut (a semi-enclosed Arctic embayment). Solid lines denote mean detection proportions, while individual markers show proportion variability at each measured distance interval for days (Jupiter) and hours (Cumberland Sound). No variability data is shown for Lake Charlotte, as only single values were collected at each distance interval. Plots show distinct CPDI effect to be present in both the Arctic embayment and freshwater lake, but absent at the exposed reef site, which showed a consistently declining profile from near to far.
