The Status of the World's Land and Marine Mammals: Diversity, Threat, and Knowledge
A comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals is presented, compiled by 1700+ experts, to suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Expand
Dolphins, whales and porpoises : 2002-2010 conservation action plan for the world's cetaceans
Consistent evaluation and new recommendations for action are required of protective measures to address threats that were unrecognised or non-existent until recently. Global warming, noise pollutionExpand
Ecology, status and conservation of short-beaked common dolphins Delphinus delphis in the Mediterranean Sea
Current knowledge is reviewed and priorities for action aimed at identi- fying and mitigating the main threats to common dolphins in the Mediterranean are suggested, with the ultimate goal of restoring the species' favourable conservation status in the region. Expand
