High impact information on Humpback Whale

  • We tested the use of genetic markers as the primary means of identifying individuals in a study of humpback whales in the North Atlantic Ocean [1].
  • In comparisons between contaminant concentrations and patterns in the blubber of female blue and humpback whales, there were no significant differences in concentrations, but the proportions of some PCB congeners, HCH isomers, and DDT and its metabolites were different in the two baleen whale species [2].
