Dear MARMAM readers,

I’m a bit slow to post this note, but I wanted to let MARMAM readers know
that the following paper was published late last year.

Wiles, G. J. 2005. A checklist of the birds and mammals of Micronesia.
Micronesica 38:141-189.

The mammal section of the checklist includes an annotated listing of 21
marine mammal species documented at one or more of the region’s nine
island groups, including Palau, Yap, Guam, the Commonwealth of the
Northern Mariana Islands, Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae, the Marshalls, and Wake.
 The list updates several previous publications (Eldredge 1991, Reeves et
al. 1999) reporting species occurrences in the region.

A pdf copy is available upon request from me (wilesharkey at yahoo.com).
