PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG THE DELPHINID CETACEANS BASED ON FULL CYTOCHROME B SEQUENCES
The results indicate the need for systematic revision of the delphinid family; a provisional classification is presented and compared to previous studies and suggested revisions are suggested.
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.
The Impact of Conservation on the Status of the World’s Vertebrates
Though the threat of extinction is increasing, overall declines would have been worse in the absence of conservation, and current conservation efforts remain insufficient to offset the main drivers of biodiversity loss in these groups.
Generation length and percent mature estimates for IUCN assessments of cetaceans
The method the authors developed estimated percent mature for the current population and the generation length for the pre-disturbance population using a simple 5parameter demographic model based on age of first reproduction, inter-birth interval, maximum age of reproductive females, calf survival rate, and non-calf survival.
