In this summary, each contributor shares a message about science communication and why it is important.
Aquatic Mammals is a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the European Association for Aquatic Mammals (EAAM), the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums (AMMPA), and the International Marine Animal Trainers’ Association (IMATA). Aquatic Mammals publishes articles related to marine mammals (whales, dolphins, seals, fur seals, sea lions, walrus, dugongs, manatees, sea otters, and polar bears). Topics of publication on both captive animals and wild marine mammals include aspects of husbandry; behavior; conservation; veterinary medicine; anatomy; physiology; training; population trends; and the effects of pollution, climate change, and noise.
In addition, Aquatic Mammals has a Historical Perspectives feature, which includes essays and high-definition DVDs of interviews with prominent marine mammal scientists. The journal also publishes short notes, Book Reviews, and various reports (e.g., workshop summaries, proceedings).
In the video below, prominent marine mammal scientists interviewed for Aquatic Mammal Journal’s Historical Perspectives offer advice to students interested in pursuing a career studying marine mammals. To order DVDs or for more info on the Historical Perspectives series, click this link.
