Previous studies revealed that female bottlenose dolphins have not only associates based on kinship but also those are not based on kinship, and females associate with those in

SEQUENTIAL FORAGING BEHAVIOUR OF BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS, TURSIOPS TRUNCATUS, IN SARASOTA BAY, FL by DOUGLAS P. NOWACEK 1,2) (Department of Biology, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA 02543) (Acc. 15-VI-2002) Summary Detailed analyses of dolphin foraging behaviour have typically
that geographic and social separation between populations may lead to variations in whistle structure of bottlenose dolphins ( Tursiops truncatus ). Dolphins in nearby areas may influence each other’s whistles through mimicry during the periodic movements of individuals between adjacent regions (Wang
