out of 5 stars A thorough compilation of cetacean behavior and study. Reviewed in the United States on Septem Cetacean Societies (), edited by Janet Mann, Richard Connor, Peter Tyack, and Hal Whitehead, is divided into three parts: the first covers the history of cetacean study (first through the whaling industry and /5(8).
A broad review of established and entirely new data on the behavior of marine mammals, particularly dolphins. Includes hearing and vision; adaptive coloration; cetacean communication, language, and mating systems; effect of the cetacean school on the individual; behavioral contrasts and comparisons between species in controlled settings such as oceanariums; and learning, memory, communication.
Cetacean Social Structure Within the Molecular Ecology Laboratory, researchers are working on a number of case studies that use molecular genetic techniques to document the social organization, social structure and sex-biased dispersal patterns of wild cetaceans.
There are on-going studies on several species, including sperm whales, Dall's porpoises, eastern tropical Pacific dolphins, belugas. Cetacean, any member of an entirely aquatic group of mammals commonly known as whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Cetaceans are entirely carnivorous.
Their ancestors moved their limbs in a vertical plane, and thus cetaceans use vertical strokes when they swim, instead of horizontal strokes like a. Cetacean surfacing behaviour or breaching is a Cetacean behavior book of behaviours demonstrated by the Cetacea infraorder when they come to the water's surface to breathe.
Time intervals between surfacing can vary depending on the species, surfacing style or the purpose of the dive, and some species have been known to dive for up to 85 minutes at a time when hunting. The Amy R.
Samuels Cetacean Behavior and Conservation (CBC) Award. The Amy R. Samuels Cetacean Behavior and Conservation Grant was established to provide financial support for graduate students studying cetacean behavior and/or cetacean conservation in natural environments.
How Behavior Works is the signature scientific work of author and published scientist Robert William Hult. The book begins chapter by chapter building a predictive model of animal and human behavior, which can be tremendously useful in nearly any business or profession/5.

The smallest cetacean is Maui's dolphin, at 1 m (3 ft 3 in) and 50 kg ( lb); the largest is the blue whale, at m (98 ft) and t (, lb).
Baleen whales have a tactile system in the short hairs (vibrissae) around their mouth; toothed whales also develop vibrissae, but lose them during fetal development or shortly after birth, [3 Class: Mammalia. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Cetacean behavior.
New York: Wiley, © (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors. In the songs and bubble feeding of humpback whales; in young killer whales learning to knock a seal from an ice floe in the same way their mother does; and in the use of sea sponges by the dolphins of Shark Bay, Australia, to protect their beaks while foraging for fish, we find clear examples of the transmission of information among cetaceans.
Just as human cultures pass on languages and turns. Diving into our current understanding of and dynamic research on dolphin and whale cognition, communication, and culture, Deep Thinkers reveals how incredibly sophisticated these mammals are—and how much we can learn about other animal minds by studying cetacean behavior.
Through a combination of fascinating text and more than beautiful. Cetaceans are one of the most unknown groups in the animal kingdom. Their study is very difficult due to their scarcity, their flighty behavior, and their enormous displacements.
Understanding baseline behavior was identified as a primary research goal, which SERDP is addressing through four research projects initiated in FY The response of cetaceans to sound typically depends on the context of exposure and the physiological condition, experience, and behavioral state of exposed individuals.

In this book, the editors present a view of the socioecology of primates and cetaceans in a comparative perspective to elucidate the social evolution of highly intellectual mammals in terrestrial and Observing and Quantifying Cetacean Behavior in the Wild: Current Problems, Limitations, and Future Directions.
Janet Mann, Bernd Würsig. Cetacean Cognition and Behavior in the Wild Beyond knowing what cetaceans can do with their large complex brains, it's equally important to ask what they do naturally. Long-term field research has shown that dolphins live in large complex groups with highly differentiated relationships that include long-term bonds, higher-order alliances, and Cited by: The Hardcover of the Cetacean Behavior: Mechanisms and Functions by Louis M.

Vast differences in breathing behavior and patterns exist both across and within cetacean, pinniped, sirenian, and marine carnivore species, depending on their behavior and activity level. Dolphin, cetacean, marine mammal behavioral book recommendations. I am an earth science major, though as a hobby I hope to learn more about dolphin behavior, mainly social behavior regarding interspecies and intraspecies interactions.
Whale Behavior, pages 27 to 32 This workbook has a worksheet and activity that relate directly to this lesson on whale behavior. Pages 28 to 29 have a poster that includes depictions and brief descriptions of the behaviors described in this lesson (and two feeding behaviors covered in Lesson 7).
The case that culture is the sole cause of these differences in cetacean behavior varies in strength, being perhaps strongest for humpback whale songs and weakest for bottlenose dolphin foraging strategies (Rendell and Whitehead, ; Laland and Janik, ).While it is very likely that culture has a role in all cases, ecological or genetic influences may also be present, making the Cited by: I have been examining the diving and night-time behaviour of a number of species of cetaceans, using suction-cup attached TDRs.
This has involved work in eastern and western Canada (Nova Scotia and British Columbia), off Japan, New Zealand, the United States (Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii) French Polynesia (Moorea), Iceland, and Italy. Bow riding is when a cetacean rides the bow waves produced by boats and ships.
The animals are pushed along by the bow wave and often weave in and out in groups trying to get the best position for the best ride. A similar behavior, wake riding, describes when cetaceans swim in the wake of a : Laura Klappenbach.
Contemporary knowledge of impressive neurophysiology and behavior in cetaceans, combined with increasing opportunities for studying free-ranging cetaceans who initiate sociable interaction with humans, are converging to highlight serious ethical considerations and emerging opportunities for a new era of progressive and less-invasive cetacean by: The Animal Behavior Society's Education Committee was formed to promote quality instruction and training in the area of animal behavior.

In the early s, Defran and his graduate student colleagues in the Cetacean Behavior Laboratory began an ongoing study of the population dynamics and behavior of File Size: 3MB. Behavioral patterns and psychological dispositions toward the dead – including grieving, mourning, and bereavement – have been studied thoroughly among humans, but similar behaviors are poorly understood when performed by nonhuman mammals.
When a cetacean wants to breathe, it has to rise to the water surface and exhale and inhale out of the blowholes located on top of its head. When the cetacean comes to the surface and exhales, you can sometimes see the spout, or blow, which is the result of the warm air in the whale's lungs condensing upon reaching the cool air outside.

Both mysticetes and odontocetes are thought to be descendants of archaeocetes (Archaeoceti, ancient whales), an extinct are at least 83 living species of cetaceans, with 46 genera in 14 families.
What’s this all about?” Dr. Paul Spong, who came to the study of cetology as a psychologist, found himself transformed into a devout advocate of dolphin freedom. “I came to the realization,” says Spong, “that at the same time I was manipulating their (orca) behavior, they were manipulating my behavior.Title: Cetacean ears: Publication Type: Book Chapter: Year of Publication: Authors: Ketten, D.
