Photo-identification capture-mark-recapture techniques for estimating abundance of bay, sound and estuary populations of Bottlenose dolphins along the U.S. East Coast and Gulf of Mexico, a workshop…
Guidelines and quantitative standards to improve consistency in cetacean subspecies and species delimitation relying on molecular genetic data
An initial set of quantitative and qualitative standards based on the types of data and analytical methods most readily available at present are proposed, meant to encourage taxonomic arguments that are consistent and transparent.
A review of molecular genetic markers and analytical approaches that have been used for delimiting marine mammal subspecies and species
Examining empirical cases revealed a mixture of sound and inadequate practices for genetic studies of cetacean taxonomy and suggested that improvements could be made to the field by developing standard guidelines.

The importance of both detecting and reporting the occurrence of heteroplasmy in wild populations in order to enhance the knowledge of both the introduction and the persistence of mutant mitochondrial haplotypes in the evolutionary process is stressed.
9 Sexual Coercion in Dolphin Consortships: A Comparison with Chimpanzees
A Review of Common Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus truncatus) in the Northern Gulf of Mexico: Population Biology, Potential Threats, and Management
Research conducted on Bottlenose Dolphins within US waters (inshore, coastal, and offshore) of the GOMx is summarized, building on the work presented in Shane et al. (1982) with work published since.

Divergence estimates and phylogenetic relationships across five genes confirm the larva and adult of Cerataspis monstrosa are the same species, demonstrating the diagnostic power of molecular systematics in instances where larval rearing seldom succeeds and morphology and habitat are not indicative of identity.
Fine-scale population structure of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in offshore and coastal waters of the US Gulf of Mexico
The finding of significant population structure in dolphins living in open-ocean waters augments the growing body of evidence indicating pelagic waters are not homogeneous even for highly mobile species.
Further evidence of a context-specific agonistic signal in bottlenose dolphins: the influence of consortships and group size on the pop vocalization
While the presence or absence of a consortship significantly affected the number of pops, average group size had no significant effect on pop production, providing further evidence that the pop vocalization plays an important role in consortships.
