  • The Burrunan dolphin, Tursiops australis, is a newly described species endemic to southern Australian coastal waters. The current distribution ranges from South Australia, east to Victoria and south to Tasmania. In the eastern region of their range, only two known resident populations of T. australis occur, Port Phillip Bay and the Gippsland Lakes. Little else is known about the population status and migration patterns of the species. Here we examine population genetics of T. australis using… CONTINUE READING
