Dear MARMAM subscribers,

    In 2006 neuroanatomist Paul Manger put forth what has come to be 
known as the 'thermogenesis hypothesis' of cetacean brain evolution.  In 
2007 we published a response to Manger's general argument in PLos 
Biology.  Today, I wish to announce the online publication of a more 
extensive and detailed rebuttal to Manger's points in our new paper in 
Biological Reviews.  It is attached and you may also find it on the 
journal's Early View at the following link:


The citation is:

A claim in search of evidence: reply to Manger's thermogenesis 
hypothesis of cetacean brain structure
