Patterns of population genetic structure among Australian and South Pacific humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae)

Schmitt, Natalie Tara

Description

Humpback whales undertake long-distance seasonal migrations between low latitude winter breeding grounds and high latitude summer feeding grounds. Although arguably one of the best studied of all baleen whales, there remain some critical gaps in our understanding of their population structure, migratory movement and the mixing of putative populations on the feeding grounds. Addressing these uncertainties is important in the development of demographic models that reconstruct the historical...[Show more]
