Table 1 Names and number of sightings of cetacean
species observed in the U.
A ROCKY headland of north Pembrokeshire might just be one of the best places in Britain to spot cetaceans
from dry land, after three different species were spotted in the space of an hour.
Rod Penrose from the Cetacean
Stranding Investigation Programme identified it as a Kemp's ridley and transferred the turtle to us.
The study is meant to lead to better understanding of the factors that influence the distribution and abundance of cetaceans
-- one of the most distinctive and highly specialised orders of mammals, which include species like dolphins, porpoises, whales and dugongs.

After several years, however, there was an amazing breakthrough in his career: he began to recruit people who showed interest in dolphins and whales and set up a long-term ocean research project on the cetacean
lifestyle in the eastern part of Taiwan in 1996.
Partial N and P gene sequencing and analysis using MEGA5 software (1) indicated that the Western Australia variant differed from other cetacean
morbilliviruses and represents a distinct lineage (Figure 2).
Since completion of the CCP project in 2008, an action plan has been prepared (Gore, 2008) and efforts have been directed to ensure the continuity of research on marine cetaceans
of Pakistan to facilitate the process of development of a proper national cetacean
conservation policy and also for promoting their sustainable use through whale and dolphin watching ecotourism by highlighting the need for their conservation.
AA and his Marine Wildlife Watch of the Philippines crew have been working to conserve cetaceans
and other charismatic species for years.
lung size has been described in several ways, including total lung mass, total lung volume and a variety of air storage capacity measurements (Piscitelli et al.
Our current understanding of the large-scale distribution of whales comes from the three circumpolar cetacean
sighting surveys (CP I--III) carried out under the auspices of the International Whaling Commission's (IWC) International Decade of Cetacean
Research (IDCR) and Southern Ocean Whale Ecosystem Research (SOWER) programmes from 1978/1979 to 2003/2004 (Herr et al.
