Cetaceans of Venezuela: Their Distribution and Conservation Status
An examination of the records for all cetaceans in the Caribbean leads us to conclude that seven additional species may be present in Venezuelan waters. Expand

Entre las especies de mamiferos acuaticos, el delfin rosado de rio (Inia geoffrensis) o bufeo como es llamado en Bolivia, constituye la unica especie de cetaceo que habita exclusivamente en aguasExpand
Internship Report_Amber Beerman
The river dolphin or bufeo (Inia boliviensis) is an endemic cetacean of the upper Madeira River basin in Bolivia; nevertheless there are few biological studies on this species. This report presentsExpand
This is the first work carried out at a micro-geographic level for a river dolphin species, where the basic social reproductive parameters are revealed, and it is shown that this species is a social reproductive one. Expand
Morphological analysis of threeInia (Cetacea: Iniidae) populations from Colombia and Bolivia
Analysis of morphometric data strongly suggests that Inia are sexually dimorphic, with males smaller for several variables and more heterogeneous than females, and the existence of two distinct species ofInia with no subspecific distinction among populations is suggested. Expand
Distribution and encounter rates of the river dolphin ( Inia geoffrensis boliviensis) in the central Bolivian Amazon
The ecology and conservation status of river dolphins ( Inia sp.) distributed in the lowland rivers of Bolivia are poorly understood and only recently have basic studies been conducted to investigateExpand
Occurrence Patterns, Habitat Associations, and Potential Prey of the River Dolphin, Inia geoffrensis, in the Cinaruco River, Venezuela1
The distribution, habitat association, group size, population structure, and prey availability of river dolphins (Inia geoffrensis) were studied from November 1993-June 1994 in the Cinaruco River, aExpand
Distribution and local range of the Orinoco dolphin (Inia geoffrensis) in the Rio Apure, Venezuela
Orinoco dolphins {Inia geoffrensis), in Venezuela known as Toninas, occur in the Orinoco, Rio Negro and tributaries in Venezuela. We intended to investigate: 1. Whether Inia is solitary and groupingExpand
Distribution of the South American dolphin Sotalia fluviatilis
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.

The aquatic mammals and reptiles of the Amazon
The vast river systems, flooded forests and floodplains of the Amazon have provided the necessary ecological conditions for the evolution of an interesting and extremely diverse aquatic fauna. TheExpand
