PRESENCE OF THE LEOPARD SEAL, HYDRURGA LEPTONYX (DE BLAINVILLE, 1820), ON THE COAST OF CHILE: AN EXAMPLE OF THE ANTARCTICA - SOUTH AMERICA CONNECTION IN THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT
Sightings of 114 leopard seals, Hydrurga leptonyx , have been recorded along the Chilean coasts from 1944 to 2010. Mostly immature seals occurred in northern and central Chile (18°30´S-39°59´S),Expand
Population structure and possible migratory links of common minke whales, Balaenoptera acutorostrata, in the Southern Hemisphere
TLDR
The genetic evidence presented here was consistent with the hypothesis of migratory links among Brazil, Chilean Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula, and between low-latitude and Antarctic waters of the WSP, which may have conservation as well as taxonomic implications. Expand
Trans-oceanic population genetic structure of humpback whales in the north and south pacific
TLDR
The results raise concerns about the effects of climate change on the phylogeographic structure and thereby the evolution and long-term conservation of this species. Expand
Killer whales in Chilean Patagonia: additional sightings, behavioural observations, and individual identifications
Se conoce muy poco sobre las orcas (Orcinus orca) que frecuentan las aguas de la Patagonia chilena y si los individuos identificados son visitantes o residentes. Se informan 119 observacionesExpand
Review of the current distribution of southern elephant seals in the eastern South Pacific
ABSTRACT The eastern South Pacific southern elephant seal population was extinguished by extensive hunting and the current presence of this species in this area is not well understood. We reviewedExpand

Sex-related site fidelity of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) to the Fueguian Archipelago feeding area, Chile
We investigated sex-related site fidelity by humpback whales to the Fueguian Archipelago, a new feeding area in the eastern South Pacific, by examining the resighting histories of 45 males and 39Expand
Evidence of spatial structuring of eastern South Pacific humpback whale feeding grounds
TLDR
The apparent absence of movements of identified humpbacks among the 3 summering areas, and the differences in the proportion of white/black coloration on the fluke, suggest that each locality corresponds to a discrete feeding area for eastern South Pacific humpback whales. Expand
Vagrant Antarctic fur seals, Arctocephalus gazella, in southern Chile
The Antarctic fur seal, Arctocephalus gazella, in the eastern South Pacific Ocean, first reported on Hoste Island, Cape Horn in 1973, and then on the Juan Fernandez Archipelago in 1982 and 1983, wasExpand
