I am conducting research on the genetic population structure of 
Cuvier's beaked whales (Ziphius cavirostris) worldwide. Any 
assistance with the collection of tissue samples or provision of 
access to osteological material (tooth and bone) for DNA analysis 
would be greatly appreciated. This study will identify appropriate 
units for conservation for this species, and will result in 
peer-reviewed scientific publications and other reports. All 
contributions will be fully acknowledged.

Note that the methods to be used for DNA sampling of osteological 
material are largely non-destructive. Only ~ 0.01 gm of bone/tooth 
powder is generally required.

If you are interested in contributing a tissue sample or bone/tooth 
material to this project please contact:
