Record #180006:

Age-specific growth and remarkable longevity in narwhals (Monodon monoceros) from West Greenland as estimated by aspartic acid racemization / Eva Garde, Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen, Steen H. Hansen, Gösta Nachman, Mads C. Forchhammer.

Title: Age-specific growth and remarkable longevity in narwhals (Monodon monoceros) from West Greenland as estimated by aspartic acid racemization / Eva Garde, Mads Peter Heide-Jørgensen, Steen H. Hansen, Gösta Nachman, Mads C. Forchhammer.
Author(s): Garde, Eva.
Heide-Jørgensen, Mads Peter.

Nachman, Gösta.
Forchhammer, Mads C.
Date: 2007.
In: Journal of Mammalogy. (2007.), Vol. 88(1) (2007)
Abstract: Reports estimation of age of narwhals (Monodon monoceros) from eyes collected from 75 specimens in west Greenland in 1993 and 2004. Age estimates are based on racemization of L-aspartic acid to D-aspartic acid in nucleus of eye lens. Using Bertalanffy growth model, estimates age at sexual maturity to be 6-7 years for females and 9 years for males.
