Common Dolphins: The genus Delphinus, in the family Delphinidae, consisting of two species of DOLPHINS. They are multicolored, with a characteristic yellow-tan criss-cross hourglass pattern behind the eyes.Dolphins: Mammals of the families Delphinidae (ocean dolphins), Iniidae, Lipotidae, Pontoporiidae, and Platanistidae (all river dolphins). Among the most well-known species are the BOTTLE-NOSED DOLPHIN and the KILLER WHALE (a dolphin). The common name dolphin is applied to small cetaceans having a beaklike snout and a slender, streamlined body, whereas PORPOISES are small cetaceans with a blunt snout and rather stocky body. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, pp978-9)Bottle-Nosed Dolphin: The species Tursiops truncatus, in the family Delphinidae, characterized by a bottle-shaped beak and slightly hooked broad dorsal fin.Cetacea: An order of wholly aquatic MAMMALS occurring in all the OCEANS and adjoining seas of the world, as well as in certain river systems. They feed generally on FISHES, cephalopods, and crustaceans. Most are gregarious and most have a relatively long period of parental care and maturation. Included are DOLPHINS; PORPOISES; and WHALES. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, pp969-70)Angiomatosis: A condition with multiple tumor-like lesions caused either by congenital or developmental malformations of BLOOD VESSELS, or reactive vascular proliferations, such as in bacillary angiomatosis. Angiomatosis is considered non-neoplastic.Fisheries: Places for cultivation and harvesting of fish, particularly in sea waters. (from McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)Stenella: A genus comprised of spinner, spotted, and striped DOLPHINS, in the family Delphinidae. Schools of Stenella, that may number in the thousands, often associate with schools of TUNA, and are thus vulnerable to accidental harvesting.

Diseases, lesions and malformations in the long-beaked common dolphin Delphinus capensis from the Southeast Pacific. (1/8)

Miscellaneous lesions of the head, skull, teeth, trunk, appendages, skin and genital tract were observed in 120 of 930 long-beaked common dolphins Delphinus capensis taken in fisheries off Peru between 1985 and 2000. Seven subsamples were defined according to the varying field sampling protocols. Forty-two dolphins showed at least 2 types of injuries or diseases affecting 1 or more organs. The majority (5 of 7) of traumas encountered were diagnosed as caused by violent, fisheries-related interactions, and the skin in 20.4 % of specimens (n = 54) showed healed scars from such interactions. Prevalences of malformations and traumas of crania (n = 103) were 2.9 and 1.9%, respectively. Lytic cranial lesions were present in 31.1% of dolphins (n = 103) and accounted for 84.2% of all bone injuries. Skull damage diagnostic for Crassicauda sp. infestation was encountered in 26.5% of dolphins (n = 98) and did not differ among sex and age classes. Crassicauda sp. and tooth infections were responsible for, respectively, 78.8 and 6.1% of the lytic lesions. Adult dolphins showed a high prevalence of worn and broken teeth (35%, n = 20) as well as damaged alveoli (20%, n = 70). Prevalence of 'paired teeth', a congenital condition, was 9.4% (n = 32). Lesions of the head, body and appendages were present in 10 dolphins and included traumas, deformations (e.g. scoliokyphosis and brachygnathia) and chronic mastitis. Ovarian cysts suggestive of follicular cysts were observed in 1 of 24 females. Chronic orchitis affected 1 of 78 males. Of 12 dolphins 2 had vesicular lesions of the penis. Prevalence of cutaneous lesions, abnormalities and scars ranged between 1.8% (n = 56) and 48.2% (n = 27).  (+info)

Comparative anatomy of the foramen ovale in the hearts of cetaceans. (2/8)

The structure of the cardiac foramen ovale from 17 species representing six cetacean families, the Monodontidae, Phocoenidae, Delphinidae, Ziphiidae, Balaenidae and the Balaenopteridae, was studied using the scanning electron microscope. Eight white whale fetuses (Delphinapterus leucas) and a narwhal fetus (Monodon monoceros) represented the Monodontidae; one fetal and nine neonatal harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) and a finless porpoise fetus (Neophocoena phocoenoides) represented the Phocoenidae; two white-beaked dolphin fetuses (Lagenorhynchus albirostris), four fetal and one neonatal Atlantic white-sided dolphins (Lagenorhynchus acutus), a Risso's dolphin fetus (Grampus griseus), two common bottle-nosed dolphin neonates (Tursiops truncatus), a female short-beaked common dolphin fetus (Delphinus delphis), four killer whale fetuses (Orcinus orca) and two long-finned pilot whale fetuses (Globicephala melas) represented the Delphinidae; two northern bottlenose whale fetuses (Hyperoodon ampullatus) represented the Ziphiidae; one bowhead whale fetus (Balaena mysticetus) represented the Balaenidae and five Common minke whale fetuses (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), one blue whale fetus (Balaenoptera musculus), nine fin whale fetuses (Balaenoptera physalus) and four humpback whale fetuses (Megaptera novaeangliae) represented the Balaenopteridae. The hearts of an additional two incompletely identified toothed and four baleen whale fetuses were also studied. In each species the fold of tissue derived from the cardiac septum primum and subtended by the foramen ovale had the appearance of a short tunnel or sleeve which was fenestrated at its distal end. In the toothed whales the tissue fold was tunnel-shaped with the interatrial septum as the floor whereas in baleen whales it was more sleeve-like. In toothed whales thin threads extended from the fold to insert into the interatrial septum whereas a network of threads covered the distal end of the sleeve in the baleen whales. Similar structures were present in the corresponding cardiac tissues of neonatal Hippopotamidae.  (+info)

History of expansion and anthropogenic collapse in a top marine predator of the Black Sea estimated from genetic data. (6/8)

Two major ecological transitions marked the history of the Black Sea after the last Ice Age. The first was the postglacial transition from a brackish-water to a marine ecosystem dominated by porpoises and dolphins once this basin was reconnected back to the Mediterranean Sea (ca. 8,000 y B.P.). The second occurred during the past decades, when overfishing and hunting activities brought these predators close to extinction, having a deep impact on the structure and dynamics of the ecosystem. Estimating the extent of this decimation is essential for characterizing this ecosystem's dynamics and for formulating restoration plans. However, this extent is poorly documented in historical records. We addressed this issue for one of the main Black Sea predators, the harbor porpoise, using a population genetics approach. Analyzing its genetic diversity using an approximate Bayesian computation approach, we show that only a demographic expansion (at most 5,000 y ago) followed by a contemporaneous population collapse can explain the observed genetic data. We demonstrate that both the postglacial settlement of harbor porpoises in the Black Sea and the recent anthropogenic activities have left a clear footprint on their genetic diversity. Specifically, we infer a strong population reduction (~90%) that occurred within the past 5 decades, which can therefore clearly be related to the recent massive killing of small cetaceans and to the continuing incidental catches in commercial fisheries. Our study thus provides a quantitative assessment of these demographically catastrophic events, also showing that two separate historical events can be inferred from contemporary genetic data.  (+info)

An early morning walk along a water channel through an industrial area turned up a few nice birds, including Whimbrel, Black-crowned Night-heron, Snowy Egret, and a Caspian Tern. A California Towhee was feeding its young on a fence behind the motel. We crossed over the hills to the coast, which we first encountered at Rockaway Beach, south of Pacifica. There, we encountered for the first time the incredible richness of the coastal bird life, with lots of gulls (first life bird: the oh-so-abundant Western Gull) and such goodies (for a midwesterner) as Brown Pelicans, lots of Western Grebes, Surf Scoters, a Pacific Loon, a Black Oystercatcher, and some Pigeon Guillemots. Furthermore, there were Harbor Seals, and even some dolphins (possibly all gray, long-snouted with a white snout tip, and a prominent recurved dorsal fin, indicating either Bottlenose or Common Dolphin, both unusual this far north).

The common dolphins underwent centuries of evolution to move from terrestrial to aquatic mammals. These mammals share much of their evolution with the other members of the Cetacea. Various genes went through positive selection, or Darwinian selection, to be in the form they take today. Numerous studies show the about 2.26%-4.8%, around 376 genes, of genes were selected for with positive selection. This gene selection is believed to help the overall system development, pattern of specification process, and mesoderm development.[6] Morphological evolution is evident as the Delphinus form is significantly different than the body of the Pakicetus. In dolphins, there is a overrepresentation in genes of MET, FOXP2, TRIM63, FOXO3, CD2, and PTCH1 which are possibly responsible for the morphological evolution. Evidence shows that there could be changes in transcription factors, expression patterns, and in protein function that is also responsible for the morphological changes.[7] Adapting to the aquatics ...

Vivergo Fuels, the UKs largest producer of bioethanol, is warning that the UKs bioethanol industry and the thousands of jobs it supports are at risk, unless the Government backtracks on a recent recommendation.. Vivergo welcomes the UK governments recent proposal to increase renewables in transport, but it has major concerns around proposals to limit the amount of crops used to produce fuels such as ethanol via a so called crop cap. The Department for Transport recently proposed a low cap of 2% compared to a European standard of 7%, although it also consulted on as low as 0%.. In a statement, Vivergo said that a crop cap of 2% or less would not only severely impact on the UKs ability to effectively implement E10 - a greener fuel containing 10% bioethanol - but it could also lead to the closure of the industry.. According to the company, this would risk thousands of jobs throughout Vivergos supply chain, affect the livelihoods of farmers that sell feed wheat for its production and buy its ...

Discussions about the creative industries have traditionally been plagued by fuzzy definitions. Seemingly which industries were classified as creative and which were not was a political judgement - not something informed by data. However, our 2013 report A [4]Dynamic Mapping of the UKs Creative Industries [5] identified in the data a distinguishing characteristic of the creative industries, namely that workers doing creative jobs (defined as satisfying a set of explicit criteria) account for a high proportion of their workforce ( their creative intensity).[1]. This approach to identifying a set of industries as creative has the additional attraction of providing a clear definition of the creative economy within which the creative industries sit - namely, the sum of creative jobs outside the creative industries and all jobs (creative and non-creative) in the creative industries. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) adopted this methodology for classifying specific ...

Description. As the Bremain and Brexit campaigns gear up for the last three days of campaigning, the outcome remains far from clear. Recent polls show the vote tied at 50/50. Both sides of the argument have heralded the referendum as a "unique event". Unique as it may be for this generation of UK citizens, referenda of this kind are not singular. In fact, the UKs referendum on EU membership, to be held on 23 June, shares a number of remarkable parallels with Spains in-out NATO referendum, held thirty years earlier on 12 March 1986.

Biological samples of free-ranging dolphins are increasingly used to gain information on population structure and ecology. In small cetaceans, the gender of individuals usually cannot be determined at sea, and population sex ratio has to be inferred indirectly. We used molecular sexing to determine the gender of 340 biopsy samples of bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus, spotted dolphins, Stenella frontalis, and common dolphins, Delphinus delphis, collected around the Azores and Madeira. Sex ratio was globally skewed in favor of males, and differed between species and archipelagos. Skew was probably influenced by the selectivity of biopsy collectors and seasonal or year-round predominance of males in natural populations. Skew was also influenced by sampling duration and intensity. In the Azores, when several samples were successively collected within the same group, the proportion of female samples decreased as a function of sample order. This trend indicated a tendency for females to ...

The evolution of dolphins, or Delphinus, is believed to have started with the Pakiectus a four legged, land walking mammal. The Pakiectus dates back to approximately 50 million years ago. Throughout the centuries, these animals have gone through drastic changes to become the modern day dolphin. Along with the Pakiectus, the dolphin is thought to have evolved alongside or from the Ambulocetus, Remingtonocetidae, Protocetid, Basilosaurudae, Dorudontid, Squalodontidae, Aetiocetidae, and Kentriodontidae to eventually become the Delphinus which is found in the Cetacea infraorder.[1][2] The Pakiectus lived near the shallow waters and began to feed on organisms that lived in these waters, which began the transition from terrestrial to aquatic animals. The bone structure of the flipper in the modern dolphin is very similar to the structure found in the Pakiectus legs and hooves, confirming the link between the two organisms.[3] Over the 50 million years of evolution, the ancestors of dolphins adapted ...

Sleep last night was a little better for Miss Reagan. Im pretty sure she slept all night and when I woke up at 7:20am, she was laying there awake but still groggy (I think she had just woke up). Shes been a happy girl again today. Super smiley. Super sweet. So much so, we decided to seize the day and take her to do the Dolphin Encounter. We had to take a Ferry out to the island where they have the dolphins. It was a windy ride out there but the water was so amazingly beautiful. Reagan and I did the Dolphin Encounter, while Mike and Reagans nurse Teri did the Dolphin Swim. I definitely think the swim would have been more fun, but Reagan was too young to do it and I was too pregnant!! The Dolphin Encounter was still fun...just not worth the ridiculous amount of money (none of it was, really). Reagan did seem to like the noise that the dolphin made, but she wasnt crazy about him splashing her with water!!

The best indication of sardine action is Cape Gannets circling in the air and then and diving into the water. Just before they reach the water they pull their wings back like a fighter jet. It is quite strange to hear a loud crack and then be suddenly looking at a bird with a sardine in its mouth 10 meters under the water. The truth is, once you get into the water, you dont know what to expect. There can be absolutely nothing or only sardines that are being targeted by the Gannets. Hopefully there are big predators too, like dolphin or shark. We saw only common dolphin but bottlenose are seen. The sharks that you can encounter are mostly dusky ,copper and blacktip with the occasional Zambezi thrown in for good measure. The dolphin hunt by blowing bubbles and using their sonar to keep the sardines together. They then hit the ball at great speed. Sharks are normally present but will patrol the fringes and bottom of the ball for a snack. The real jackpot is when Brydes or Minke Whales start ...

The Government is now reviewing the Threat Management Plan for Mauis dolphins. As it will determine the future of Mauis dolphins the international spotlight will be on New Zealand. You can make a submission by following the guidelines here. Note: Its a 219 page document, but the key sections to comment on are section 6 - on fishing related threats - and section 7 - on other threats.. You can also write to your MP or to the editor of your local newspaper raising the issue of Mauis dolphin and asking that action be taken to ensure its survival. To get updates on the campaign you can sign up here.. Most New Zealanders have pretty strong feelings about countries that go it alone and defy the IWC on whales... yet we are ignoring what they say on dolphins.

River dolphins are a very widespread group of fully aquatic mammals that reside exclusively in freshwater or brackish water. They are an informal grouping of dolphins, which is a paraphyletic group within the infraorder Cetacea. The river dolphins comprise the extant families Platanistidae (the Indian dolphins), Iniidae (the Amazonian dolphins), and Pontoporiidae (the brackish dolphins). There are five extant species of river dolphins, and two subspecies. River dolphins, alongside other cetaceans, belong to the clade Cetartiodactyla, with even-toed ungulates, and their closest living relatives the hippopotamuses, having diverged about 40 million years ago. River dolphins are relatively small compared to other dolphins, having evolved to survive in warm, shallow water and strong river currents. They range in size from the 5-foot (1.5 m) long South Asian river dolphin to the 8-foot (2.4 m) and 220-pound (100 kg) Amazon river dolphin. Several species exhibit sexual dimorphism, in that the males are ...
Oceanic dolphins or Delphinidae are a widely distributed family of dolphins that live in the sea. Thirty extant species are described. They include several big species whose common names contain "whale" rather than "dolphin", such as the killer whale and the pilot whales. Delphinidae is a family within the superfamily Delphinoidea, which also includes the porpoises (Phocoenidae) and the Monodontidae (beluga whale and narwhal). River dolphins are relatives of the Delphinoidea. Oceanic dolphins range in size from the 5.6-foot (1.7 m)-long and 110-pound (50 kg) Mauis dolphin to the 31-foot (9.4 m) and 11-short-ton (10.0 t) killer whale, the largest known dolphin. Several species exhibit sexual dimorphism; the males are larger than females. They have streamlined bodies and two limbs that are modified into flippers. Though not quite as flexible as seals, some dolphins can travel at 34.5 mph (55.5 km/h). Most delphinids primarily eat fish, along with a smaller number of squid and small crustaceans, ...

  • The evolution of dolphins, or Delphinus , is believed to have started with the Pakiectus a four legged, land walking mammal. (kenyon.edu)
  • Along with the Pakiectus , the dolphin is thought to have evolved alongside or from the Ambulocetus , Remingtonocetidae , Protocetid , Basilosaurudae , Dorudontid , Squalodontidae , Aetiocetidae , and Kentriodontidae to eventually become the Delphinus which is found in the Cetacea infraorder. (kenyon.edu)
  • To adapt to living in an aquatic environment, the dolphins what to change their body and way of living. (kenyon.edu)
  • https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3686761/ Mariana F. Nery, Dimar J. Gonzalez, and Juan C. Opazo, "How to Make a Dolphin: Molecular Signature of Positive Selection of Cetacean Genome" 2013. (kenyon.edu)
  • Over the 50 million years of evolution, the ancestors of dolphins adapted from being terrestrial to aquatic. (kenyon.edu)
  • In comparison to the Pakiectus , dolphins hav much larger skulls with a shape that has adapted to accommodate for a padded lower jaw and extended middle ear. (kenyon.edu)
  • Dolphins evolved from terrestrial animals into aquatic animals throughout generations of evolution. (kenyon.edu)
  • Throughout the centuries, these animals have gone through drastic changes to become the modern day dolphin. (kenyon.edu)
  • The coastal dolphins appear to adapt to warm, shallow waters. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reports of common dolphins from most of the Caribbean Basin are also rejected, and the only place in that region where they are confirmed to occur is off central-eastern Venezuela (a coastal D. capensis population). (springer.com)
  • Off eastern South America, common dolphins appear to be restricted to south of 20°S. There is a coastal long-beaked population found in the South Brazil Bight, and one or more short-beaked populations south and offshore of this (ranging south to at least northern Argentina). (springer.com)
  • The research area comprises part of the NATURA 2000 network which was predominantly established here for these dolphins. (cambridge.org)
  • The results indicate that cardiac output had to remain elevated during surface intervals for both ecotypes, and suggests that cardiac output has to remain elevated during shallow dives in-between deep dives to allow sufficient restoration of O 2 stores for Bermuda dolphins. (au.dk)
  • The population structure of three species of Black Sea dolphins as an adequate basis of their abundance estimation. (iucnredlist.org)
  • Several abundance models were used, from which the Markovian robust model proved the best fit and predicted between 47-142 dolphins along the west Istria coast. (cambridge.org)
  • On the coast of California there are only about 25,000 to 43,000 dolphins and on the coast of South Africa there are 15,000 to 20,000. (wikipedia.org)
  • This model could bring us insights into the spatial distribution of the common dolphins and thus help us identify areas where their habitat overlaps with human activities. (archipelago.gr)
  • However, with all marine mammals these dolphins too are subject to the same threats as others such as pollution and degradation of the marine environment. (whalewatch.co.nz)
  • Fun times with Common Dolphins! (azoreswhalewatch.com)
  • Like Olympic high-divers, these dolphins like to jump and spin as many times as possible before hitting the water, sometimes achieving up to 7 full rotations in a single jump. (vallarta-adventures.com)
  • The model suggested that the known O 2 stores were sufficient for Sarasota Bay dolphins to remain within the calculated aerobic dive limit (cADL), but insufficient for Bermuda dolphins that regularly exceeded their cADL. (au.dk)
  • By adjusting the model to reflect the body composition of deep diving Bermuda dolphins, with elevated muscle mass, muscle myoglobin concentration and blood volume, the cADL increased beyond the longest dive duration, thus reflecting the necessary physiological and morphological changes to maintain their deep-diving life-style. (au.dk)
  • In the case of common dolphins, data from specially dedicated boat surveys is used. (archipelago.gr)
