Bayesian methods for marine mammal population assessment
Policy-makers increasingly need to use scientific data that are imprecise. This
problem is particularly apparent for marine mammal management issues, where
The use of molecular and observational data to infer the structuring of bottlenose dolphin populations
Knowledge of the structuring of natural populations is important for understanding
both evolutionary processes and population ecology, and for supporting

Comparing two alternative methods for genetic sampling of small cetaceans
oncern about the possible disturbance and physical impact caused by biopsy sampling has led to the development of less-invasive methods of tissue sampling. Tis...
Male-male aggression renders bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) unconscious
ntraspeciŽc aggression constitutes a signiŽcant proportion of conspeciŽc behaviours among many mammal species. Agonistic interactions among male bottlenose dol...

ass strandings coincident with naval operations have demonstrated that beaked whales are particularly vulnerable to anthropogenic noise pollution. Further unde...
Population Genetic Structure of Coastal Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in the Northern Bahamas
opulation substructure has important implications for a species' ecology and evolution. As such, knowledge of this structuring is critical for the conservation...
Population estimate and inter-island movement of sperm whales, Physeter macrocephalus, in the Eastern Caribbean
hen a population extends across international boundaries, management becomes more complex. This is especially true within a confined multinational area such as...
