Formal Comment on Schorr, G.S., E.A. Falcone, D.J. Moretti, and R.D. Andrews. 2014. First Long-Term Behavioral Records from Cuvier’s Beaked Whales (Ziphius cavirostris) Reveal Record-Breaking Dives
Cuvier’s beaked whales (Ziphius cavirostris) are known as extreme divers, though behavioral data from this difficult-to-study species have been limited.
Low-frequency acoustic signals generated by baleen whales can propagate over vast distances, making the assignment of calls to specific individuals
Age, Region, and Temporal Patterns of Trace Elements in Stranded Harbor Seals (Phoca vitulina richardii) from Washington Inland Waters
We measured concentrations of aluminum (Al), arsenic (As), cadmium (Cd), copper (Cu), lead (Pb), nickel (Ni), total mercury (THg), methylmercury
False Killer Whales and Fisheries Interactions in Hawaiian Waters: Evidence for Sex Bias and Variation Among Populations and Social Groups
We assessed scarring patterns as evidence of fisheries interactions for three populations of false killer whales in Hawai‘i. Bycatch of
Trends in cetacean density and distribution off southern California were assessed through visual line-transect surveys during thirty-seven California Cooperative Oceanic
Are Marine Protected Areas and Conservation Priority Areas Representative of Humpback Whale Breeding Habitats in the Western South Atlantic?
The establishment of marine protected areas (MPAs) is an important component of conservation strategies for large marine vertebrates. Thus, quantitative
Understanding gene flow and dispersal patterns is important for predicting effects of natural events and anthropogenic activities on animal populations.
