Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Mamm. (2007)

The diets of long-beaked common dolphins Delphinus capensis (n=117), dusky dolphins Lagenorhynchus obscurus (n=72), Burmeister's porpoises Phocoena spinipinnis (n=69) and offshore common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus (n=22) were determined based…


Distribution of Pholeter gastrophilus (Digenea) within the stomach of four odontocete species: the role of the diet and digestive physiology of hosts

AZNAR, F. J.; FOGNANI, P.; BALBUENA, J. A.; PIETROBELLI, M.; RAGA, J. A.
Parasitology (2006)

We compared the distribution of the digenean Pholeter gastrophilus in the stomach of 27 harbour porpoises, Phocoena phocoena, 27 striped dolphins, Stenella coeruleoalba, 18 bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus, and 100…


Differences in the response of a striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) and a harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) to an acoustic alarm

Kastelein, R.A.; Jennings, N.; Verboom, W.C.; de Haan, D.; Schooneman, N.M.
Marine Environmental Research (2006)

Small cetacean bycatch in gillnet fisheries may be reduced by deterring odontocetes from nets acoustically. However, different odontocete species may respond differently to acoustic signals from alarms. Therefore, in this…

(...) Although various sensory mechanisms are present in cetaceans, special navigational problems occur when animals are in a pelagic environment which can minimize available cues. Dawbin (1966) has observed that…
