Sighting, stranding, and capture records of whales and dolphins for Venezuela were assembled and analyzed to document the Venezuelan cetacean fauna and its distribution in the eastern Caribbean. An attempt was made to confirm species identification for each of the records, yielding 443 that encompass 21 species of cetaceans now confirmed to occur in Venezuelan marine, estuarine, and freshwater habitats. For each species, we report its global and local distribution, conservation status and… Expand
Notes on the presence of Risso's Dolphin, Grampus griseus Cuvier 1812 (Cetacea: Delphinidae), in Venezuelan waters
Risso’s dolphin, Grampus griseus (Cuvier, 1812), is distributed in tropical to temperate waters around the world. Nevertheless, there are few records of it for the Caribbean and it is not consideredExpand
Biogeography of common dolphins (genus Delphinus) in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The cranial analyses demonstrated that both short-beaked common dolphins Delphinus delphis and long-beaking common dolphins Dephinus capensis occur in the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean (SWA). Expand
Whale Shark records and conservation status in Venezuela
TLDR
It is proposed that the Whale Shark be classified as Vulnerable within Venezuelan waters and long-term population and behavioural studies to track individual animals to provide an accurate picture of the distribution and abundance of Rhincodon typus. Expand
The cetaceans of Aruba, southern Caribbean
  • J. Luksenburg
  • Biology
  • Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom
  • 2013
TLDR
The presence of several species of cetaceans in Aruba's coastal waters year-round indicates that status and threat assessments are needed to protect them. Expand
A review of Balaenoptera strandings along the east coast of South America
Abstract The genus Balaenoptera comprises seven species and 15 subspecies whose conservation statuses range from “Endangered” to “Least Concern” and “Data Deficient”. In addition to data from whalingExpand
Abundance, distribution and behaviour of common dolphins, Delphinus spp., off north-eastern Venezuela: implications for conservation and management
TLDR
A scheme of management should consider the areas of major productivity along the coast as potential critical habitat for cetaceans, particularly related with high productivity due to coastal upwelling on the north-eastern coast. Expand
Guiana Dolphin (Sotalia guianensis) in the Maracaibo Lake System, Venezuela: Conservation, Threats, and Population Overview
The Guiana dolphin (Sotalia guianensis) home range is located across Central and South American countries, in coastal habitats in the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean. Its distribution is scattered, withExpand
Distribution and habitat characteristics of dolphins of the genus Stenella (Cetacea: Delphinidae) in the southwest Atlantic Ocean
The distribution of dolphins of the genus Stenella is poorly known in the southwest Atlantic Ocean. A complete review of records (n = 311) of these dolphin species was performed to describeExpand
Distribution of common dolphins (Delphinus spp.) in the western Atlantic Ocean: a critical re-examination
TLDR
This study shows that great care must be taken in identification of similar-appearing long-beaked delphinids, and that uncritical acceptance of records at face value can lead to incorrect assumptions about the ranges of the species involved. Expand
Occurrence, abundance, range, and residence patterns of Tursiops truncatus on the coast of Aragua, Venezuela
Throughout the distribution of the bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus, the occurrence, abundance, local distribution, and residential patterns are highly variable according to the pressure of theExpand

Distribution of cetaceans in the offshore Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
In order to comprehend better the distribution of Gulf of Mexico cetaceans, all available records of whales and dolphins in the offshore Gulf were assembled and analysed and an attempt was made to confirm species identification for each of the records. Expand
Whale Shark records and conservation status in Venezuela
TLDR
It is proposed that the Whale Shark be classified as Vulnerable within Venezuelan waters and long-term population and behavioural studies to track individual animals to provide an accurate picture of the distribution and abundance of Rhincodon typus. Expand

Cetaceans in British waters
TLDR
Present evidence suggests that only the large whales exhibit definite latitudinal migrations, all other species being resident at high latitudes although they may show offshore-inshore or possibly small latitudinal movements. Expand
REVISION OF THE SPOTTED DOLPHINS, STENELLA SPP.
TLDR
Stenella frontalis (G. Cuv., 1829) is proposed to be used for the Atlantic endemic species and Stenella attenuata (Gray, 1846) for the pantropical species and here redescribe the species. Expand
Metazoan parasites and other symbionts of cetaceans in the Caribbean.
The parasite fauna in cetaceans from Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the larger Caribbean region is poorly known. We provide the first records for parasite biodiversity among a diverseExpand
Whales, Dolphins, and Porpoises: of the Eastern North Pacific and Adjacent Arctic Waters, A Guide to Their Identification
TLDR
This is an identification guide for cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises), that was designed to assist laymen in identifying cetACEans encountered in eastern North Pacific and Arctic waters, that is a revision of an earlier guide published in 1972. Expand
Notes on South American Dolphins of the Genera Inia, Sotalia and Tursiops
TLDR
Present data indicate that the cataracts of the Orinoco and of some Guianan and upper Amazonian streams are not barriers to the distribution of dolphins across the divides during periods of inundation, and the Pacific bottlenosed dolphin is provisionally treated as a subspecies, Tursiops nesarnack catalania Gray. Expand
Distribution of the South American dolphin Sotalia fluviatilis
TLDR
The southern limit of the range of the marine form of Sotalia is associated with the confluence zone of the Brazil and Falkland currents, suggesting that low sea-surface temperature is a limiting factor, whereas in fresh water the distribution of Amazonian SotalIA seems more closely related to the movements and concentrated occurrence of prey.
