Dear LAJAM readership,

On behalf of our Editorial Board I am pleased to announce the  
publication of Vol. 7 of the The Latin American Journal of Aquatic  
Mammals (LAJAM), combining Nos. 1 and 2.  As you are probably aware  
the journal has accrued a significant backlog in the past few years,  
but we are making steady progress in getting caught up with the  
publication schedule. The year of publication of Vol. 7 would have  
been 2008 but in order to reduce the backlog we decided to include  
manuscripts received through 2009. For this reason, please note that  
the year of publication of Vol. 7 is 2009.  No issue was published  
with a 2008 date.

The Table of Contents for Vol. 7, No. 1-2, along with the abstracts  
and the e-mail address of the corresponding authors for requesting PDF  
copies will be posted separately.  LAJAM is distributed to members of  
the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Especialistas en Mamíferos Acuáticos /  
Latin American Society of Specialists on Aquatic Mammals (solamac.org)  
and the Sociedad Mexicana de Mastozoología Marina / Mexican Society  
for Marine Mammalogy (www.somemma.org).  If you are a paid member of  
SOLAMAC or SOMEMMA for 2008-2009 you should be receiving a printed  
copy of the journal in the mail in the coming weeks.  LAJAM’s Managing  
Editor, Dr. Salvatore Siciliano, will be handling the mailing, so if  
you have any inquiries in this regard please direct them to him (sal at ensp.fiocruz.br 

LAJAM publishes articles concerning research, management and  
conservation biology of aquatic mammals in Latin America, regardless  
of the nationality of the authors.  Articles on techniques broadly  
applicable to the study of aquatic mammals are also considered  
regardless of author’s nationality.  We are currently working on the  
next issue, Vol. 8, No. 1-2, for December 2010, which will be a  
special issue on the biology and conservation of neotropical dolphins  
of the genus Sotalia.  In addition, we are accepting submissions for  
Vol. 9.  A file containing the current ‘Instructions for Authors’ is  
available on SOLAMAC’s website, or it can be requested from me (Daniel.Palacios at noaa.gov 

With this letter I am making available the editorial for Vol. 7 (see  
attachment), which contains important news for the readership.
