Behavior of Marine Animals: Current Perspectives in Research by Stephen Leatherwood, William E. Evans (auth.), Howard E.

By Stephen Leatherwood, William E. Evans (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

Four years in the past we started soliciting articles for this quantity from authors who have been engaged in accomplished examine on whales. From the outset we made up our minds to not restrict the subject material to behaviour yet to additionally contain normal background. a lot of what's recognized in regards to the habit of whales arose from experiences whose crucial objective used to be now not habit, a lot because it did for different animal teams prior to habit was once thought of a special self-discipline. therefore in lots of of the articles habit is heavily intertwined with traditional background and in others is totally overshadowed via a easy traditional background strategy. Our target was once to have the articles include a evaluate of the literature and comprise study findings no longer formerly released. For all intents and reasons this goal has been learned, albeit might be no longer in as balanced a manner when it comes to species or material as used to be initially deliberate. however, we think the articles current a variety of informative works with a myriad of techniques and strategies represented. we're thankful to the participants for his or her persistence and realizing in looking ahead to book, which has taken for much longer than we initially anticipated. we're additionally thankful tor the help of a couple of humans, in particular Julie Fischer and Lois Winn for his or her editorial efforts, and Jill Grover, Carol Samet, and Lois Winn for his or her assist in indexing.

Victor Morejohn Department of Biological Sciences San Jose State University and Moss Landing Marine Laboratories Moss Landing, California 95039 I. INTRODUCTION Dall's porpoise, Phocoenoides dalli (True), is commonly encountered over the continental shelf of North America and in offshore and pelagic waters of the western and eastern North Pacific Ocean. This striking black and white porpoise is characterized by great speed and a cone-shaped splash it makes when surfacing to breathe.

They can be outfitted with sensors for data not readily transmittable and with multichannel recorders for storage of those data. Notwithstanding the fact that some of these systems have been successfully deployed on wild marine mammals, these radio transmitters need further development and testing. Furthermore, they are limited in that so far they can only be attached to captured animals. While this poses no great difficulty for many of the smaller cetaceans, the majority of the species of interest, including those species which pose current management problems by virtue of their exploitation in world whaling fisheries, are too large and cumbersome to be Radiotelemetry in Field Studies of Cetaceans 27 easily captured and outfitted with transmitters.
