Examples of this bias are species of commercial interest and iconic or flagship species, preferred for their heavy body weight (e.g., mysticetes, proboscideans, large cats, etc.) or positive public perception (e.g., odontocetes
, primates, phocids, Cardoso et al., 2011b).
Second, they most likely gave rise to the two modern lineages: the mysticetus (baleen whales and relatives) and the odontocetes
(echolocating whales and dolphins)," he pointed out.
This is corroborated by the extremely high Cd concentrations commonly found in squid-eating odontocetes
Baleen whales, or Mysticetes, split from their toothed cousins, Odontocetes
, about 34 million years ago, and researchers analyzed a whale skull from around that time, recovered from Antarctica.
Observations of odontocetes
in central Californian waters.
Sociality and ecology of the odontocetes
.--In: Ruckstuhl, K.
The trachea of the boto and tucuxi is conical and wide, similar to those found in other odontocetes
, as Platanista gangetica and Pontoporia blainvillei (Kida) and Lagenorhynchus acutus (Moore et al., 2014).
Results of passive acoustic surveys for odontocetes
in the Southern Ocean.
Felix Marx has worked primarily on the fossil record of the earliest baleen whales (mysticetes), while Olivier Lambert has studied principally the fossils of extinct toothed whales (odontocetes
During the survey, 23 cetacean species (17 odontocetes
and 6 mysticetes) were seen, and abundance was estimated for 19 of them (15 odontocetes
and 4 mysticetes).
Beluga whales were the only odontocetes
Neglect of bandwidth of odontocetes
echo location clicks biases propagation loss and single hydrophone population estimates.
