Record #186320:

Geographic variation in external morphology of North Pacific and Southern Hemisphere blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus) / James W. Gilpatrick, Wayne L. Perryman.

Title: Geographic variation in external morphology of North Pacific and Southern Hemisphere blue whales (Balaenoptera musculus) / James W. Gilpatrick, Wayne L. Perryman.
Author(s): Gilpatrick, James W.
Perryman, Wayne L.
Date: 2008.
In: Journal of Cetacean Research and Management. (2008.), Vol. 10(1) (2008)
Abstract: Uses length data from whaling records and aerial photogrammetric surveys to investigate geographic variation in size and proportions of blue whales. Antarctic blue whales (B.m. intermedia) from Southern Ocean were statistically significantly larger than those at high latitudes in North Pacific, and results support hypotheses that blue whales that migrate from warm seas to cold feeding grounds in high latitudes are larger that those with low and mid-latitude distributions. Differences in morphology may reflect selective pressure on populations to adapt physiologically to energy demands associated with different migration, environmental and ecological regimes.
