Whale Distribution

Part of the Advances in Polar Ecology book series (AVPE, volume 5)


There have been attempts to summarise the habitats of different whale species in the world’s oceans by K. Townsend, 1931, 1935, M. Sleptsov, 1955, A. Tomilin, 1962, S. Kleinenberg and others, 1964, A. Berzin, 1971, F. Hershkovitz, 1966, M. Nishiwaki, 1966, D. Rice and V. Scheffer, 1968. However, as A. Yablokov reasonably notes in his book “Whales and Dolphins” (Yablokov et al. 1972), there are many disputable, grey areas in this question, which require the ongoing accumulation of factual data.
