Abstract The evolution of cetaceans, from their early transition to an aquatic lifestyle to their subsequent diversification, has been the subject of numerous studies. However, although the


Notes on the Behaviour and Ecology of the Peale’s Dolphin, Lagenorhynchus australis, in the Strait of Magellan, Chile
Between March 1989 and December 1995. data on the abundance, group size, behaviour, diving patterns and habitat preference of Peale's dolphins. Lagenorhynchus australis, were collected on the west
Pampusanna vs. Pampusana: a nomenclatural conundrum resolved, along with associated errors and oversights
It is shown that the original publications of their type species should be shifted, and it is demonstrated that despite frequent reference to plates and figures in Reichenbach’s earlier works, new names there are based on the index pages intended to accompany the plates, and that any captions on plates were handwritten.
