Four years in the past we started soliciting articles for this quantity from authors who have been engaged in complete examine on whales. From the outset we made up our minds to not restrict the subject material to behaviour yet to additionally comprise traditional historical past. a lot of what's identified in regards to the habit of whales arose from reviews whose central goal was once now not habit, a lot because it did for different animal teams prior to habit was once thought of a unique self-discipline. therefore in lots of of the articles habit is heavily intertwined with normal background and in others is totally overshadowed by way of a easy common background technique. Our goal used to be to have the articles include a evaluation of the literature and comprise study findings no longer formerly released. For all intents and reasons this goal has been learned, albeit probably now not in as balanced a way when it comes to species or subject material as was once initially deliberate. however, we think the articles current a variety of informative works with a myriad of ways and strategies represented. we're thankful to the individuals for his or her persistence and knowing in looking forward to booklet, which has taken for much longer than we initially anticipated. we're additionally thankful tor the help of a few humans, in particular Julie Fischer and Lois Winn for his or her editorial efforts, and Jill Grover, Carol Samet, and Lois Winn for his or her assist in indexing.

I @ Identification of Humpback Whales 39 condition of this 46-ft female suggests that it had been dead for at least several weeks (during which time the carcass could have drifted a considerable distance). This provides evidence that death does not alter fluke markings and that they can be useful in identifying dead animals. The flukes of the carcass were attacked by sharks while observers were present. This whale carcass was also photographed (Ben Baxter) September 25, 1976, on the north shore of Long Island, Nova Scotia.

The "team approach" technique used in developing and testing an implantable large-whale radio tag (Watkins and Schevill, 1977) could very well be a model for future programs involving cetacea and radiotelemetry. This tag can and should replace the discovery-type mark. It has been demonstrated that subcutaneous discovery marks can be tolerated by large whales with no apparent problem for periods of years. Data on tag-related mortality and tag loss rates are not available. The implantable whale tag is percutaneous, to allow exposure of the antennae.
