The spectacled porpoise (Phocoena dioptrica) in Antarctic waters

Journal of Cetacean Research and Management (2006)

Most knowledge on the biology and ecology of the spectacled porpoise (Phocoena dioptrica) has been obtained from stranded specimens, with less than fifteen confirmed sightings in the sea. Published photographs…

Harbour porpoise interactions with the 2001 selective salmon fisheries in southern British Columbia and license holder reported small cetacean by-catch

Hall, A.; Ellis, G.; Trites, A.W.
Selective Salmon Fisheries Science Program Report (2002)

We estimated the incidental mortality of harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) in selective salmon fisheries in southern British Columbia from reports received from federal fisheries observers (2001) and license holders (1997…

Evidence for infanticide in bottlenose dolphins: an explanation for violent interactions with harbour porpoises?

Patterson, I. A. P.; Reid, R. J.; Wilson, B.; Grellier, K.; Ross, H. M.; Thompson, P. M.
Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences (1998)

Most harbour porpoises found dead on the north–east coast of Scotland show signs of attack by sympatric bottlenose dolphins, but the reason(s) for these violent interactions remains unclear. Post–mortem examinations…

Interspecific variation of ontogeny and skull shape among porpoises (Phocoenidae)

Galatius, Anders; Berta, Annalisa; Frandsen, Marie Schou; Goodall, R. Natalie P.
Journal of Morphology (2010)

All extant members of Phocoenidae (porpoises) have been characterized as pedomorphic based on skeletal characters. To investigate the ontogenetic background for pedomorphosis and assess interspecific differences in ontogeny among phocoenids,…
