Dear all,

here are some new publications of week 31/ 2008,
which haven't been announced on MARMAM earlier AFAIK.

By clicking the following link you are guided to 
a website, where the following references are 
linked to their according journal homepages. 
There you can find abstracts and contact 

This list is rather long today because of the 
Special Issue "Marine Mammals" of the Journal of 
the Marine Biological Association of the United 
Kingdom (JMBA). Because this issue is the result 
of a cooperation of Cambridge Journals and the 
European Cetacean Society, ECS members will have 
free access to the PDF files of this issue.

Please note the following call for contributions by Graham Pierce, ECS Editor:

There will be a 2009 special issue of JMBA on 
marine mammals and it remains open for 
contributions. To be fair to authors who already 
submitted papers, if there are too many papers 
for the special issue, those papers submitted 
latest will be held back for a future issue.

While ECS especially welcomes papers based on 
presentations at the ECS conference, all original 
research papers and reviews on marine mammals 
will be considered for publication by the journal 
and there is no discrimination on the basis of 
whether or not the work was presented at ECS.

Please do not contact MARMAM, the MARMAM editors or me for reprints. Thank you.

Thanks to all of you who sent in reprints to be 
included in the weekly announcements.

Kindest Regards,
Jan Herrmann
