Dear colleagues,

A special section "Seismic survey and western gray whales" in Endangered Species Research has just been completed with the publication online today of the last of six papers. Guest edited by Randall Reeves and Greg Donovan, this series of papers describes the monitoring and mitigation approach taken in protecting an endangered summer feeding population of gray whales off Sakhalin Island (Russia) during a seismic survey in 2010, and the results of various analyses performed on the acoustic, distribution and behavioural data collected.

A summary page with an introduction by the guest editors and links to the individual papers can be found at the following URL:

The papers and links are also listed at the bottom of this message.

Kind regards,
Roberto
