Rostrum morphology and feeding strategy of the baleen whale indicate that right whales and pygmy right whales became skimmers independently

Baleen whales have lost their functional teeth and begun to use their baleen plates to feed on small prey. Modern baleen whales exhibit different types of feeding strategies, such as lunging,

Rice’s whales in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico: call variation and occurrence beyond the known core habitat

: The endangered Rice’s whale Balaenoptera ricei , with fewer than 100 individuals re -maining, is the only year-round resident baleen whale found in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) and occurs primarily

Acoustic localization, validation, and characterization of Rice's whale calls.

The recently named Rice's whale in the Gulf of Mexico is one of the most endangered whales in the world, and improved knowledge of spatiotemporal occurrence patterns is needed to support their

Spatial, temporal and demographic patterns of cetacean strandings in the northcentral Gulf of Mexico

There are few published reports that summarise long‐term stranding data for cetaceans in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM). Cetacean stranding data from Alabama (AL) in the northcentral GoM have been recorded

Field measurements reveal exposure risk to microplastic ingestion by filter-feeding megafauna

Microparticles, such as microplastics and microfibers, are ubiquitous in marine food webs. Filter-feeding megafauna may be at extreme risk of exposure to microplastics, but neither the amount nor

DNA Barcoding Technology Used to Successfully Sub-Classify a Museum Whale Specimen as Balaenoptera edeni edeni

This study provides a testable and rapid method for museum species verification, by using ancientDNA extraction methods to compensate the disadvantage of traditional DNA extraction methods that are difficult to extract valid DNA.

Forty-year historical analysis of marine mammal strandings in Texas, from 1980 – 2019

Long-term trends in marine mammal stranding patterns can provide useful information on basic life history parameters, spatiotemporal distribution, natural and human-related mortality events, and

Pathological Studies and Postmortem Computed Tomography of Dolphins with Meningoencephalomyelitis and Osteoarthritis Caused by Brucella ceti

The severity of ventriculomegaly by PMCT does not directly correlate with the severity of the inflammatory index determined by histopathological parameters of the brain cortex and other CNS regions, suggesting that these processes, although linked, are multifactorial and need further characterization and validation to establish better cutoffs on the PMCT.

The tempo of cetacean cranial evolution



Cookie-cutter shark Isistius brasiliensis eats Bryde’s whale Balaenoptera brydei

We examined the stomach contents of cookie-cutter sharks, Isistius brasiliensis, collected by drift-net surveys in the western North Pacific in the early summer. The stomachs contained fresh flesh

Identification of a Stranded Whale by Mitochondrial DNA Analysis - www.DNASurveillance Program in Action

A whale stranded in 2003 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, was identified based on its morphological characters as Bryde's whale, Balaenoptera brydei, and DNA sequence matched that of known common Bryde’s whale in a large database.

First Record of the Omura’s Whale(Balaenoptera omurai) in Korean Waters

To confirm the genetic identification and phylogenetic relationships of unidentified 6 baleen whales by-caught from 2002 to 2016, a partial sequence of approximately 500 base pair (bp) of the
