Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom (2017)

Cetacean stranding reports in the North Aegean Sea were recorded since 1998 from Strimonikos Gulf in Chalkidiki up to Alexandroupoli on the Turkish border and in a few northern Aegean…


Raising your voice: Evolution of narrow-band high-frequency signals in toothed whales (Odontoceti)

Galatius, Anders; Olsen, Morten Tange; Steeman, Mette Elstrup; Racicot, Rachel A.; Bradshaw, Catherine D; Kyhn, Line A.; Miller, Lee A.
Biological Journal of the Linnean Society (2018)

Cetaceans use sound for communication, navigation and finding prey. Most extant odontocetes produce broadband (BB) biosonar clicks covering frequency ranges from tens of kilohertz to 150–170 kHz. In contrast, the…

Jeong, Yunsun; Xue, Jingchuan; Park, Kyum Joon; Kannan, Kurunthachalam; Moon, Hyo-Bang
Environmental Science & Technology (2018)

Parabens have been of global concern due to their endocrine disrupting properties. However, few studies have reported tissue-specific distribution of parabens in wildlife. In this study, we measured parabens and…


Distribution of three sympatric cetacean species off the coast of the central-western Gulf of Thailand

Jutapruet, Suwat; Intongcome, Atichat; Wang, Xianyan; Kittiwattanawong, Kongkiat; Huang, Shiang-Lin
Aquatic Mammals (2017)

Baseline data on the distribution patterns of animals disclose the dynamic function of habitat use as it relates to the accessibility of prey, social interactions, predator-prey interactions, and inter-habitat-patch mobility.…


About stranding and accidentally caught cetaceans in the Black Sea: Death reasons, feeding characteristics and pregnancy status

Bilgin, Sabri; Onay, Hatice; Köse, Ozay; Yeşilçiçek, Tuncay
Türk Tarım ve Doğa Bilimleri Dergisi (2018)

This study was carried out to determine stranding levels, dead reasons and some reproduction features and diet of the Black Sea’ cetacean species (harbour porpoise, Phocoena phocoena and common dolphin,…


Using passive acoustic monitoring to investigate the occurrence of cetaceans in a protected marine area in northwest Ireland

Todd, Nicole R. E.; Cronin, Michelle; Luck, Cian; Bennison, Ashley; Jessopp, Mark; Kavanagh, Ailbhe S.
Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science (2020)

Under the EU Habitats Directive, cetacean species must be maintained at favourable conservation status in European waters. Whether this is achieved via protected area designation, curtailment of activities such as…


Seasonal and diel patterns in cetacean use and foraging at a potential marine renewable energy site

Nuuttila, Hanna K.; Bertelli, Chiara M.; Mendzil, Anouska; Dearle, Nessa
Marine Pollution Bulletin (2018)

Marine renewable energy (MRE) developments often coincide with sites frequented by small cetaceans. To understand habitat use and assess potential impact from development, echolocation clicks were recorded with acoustic click…
