Dear colleagues,

As alluded to a short while back, the book Würsig B. (ed.) 2019. Ethology and Behavioral Ecology of Odontocetes. Springer Nature, Cham, Switzerland was recently published, with information on the e-book, chapters, and hard copy available at: http://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030166625

My co-authors and I are most pleased to bring to your attention Ch16, the coming out party of sorts for a species that has taught us (and continues to teach us) so much about social ecology and more in the Cetacea: the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus). The abstract reads as follows:

Abstract: The behavioral ecology of Tursiops aduncus (Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin) is usually reviewed alongside the much more widely studied T. truncatus (common bottlenose dolphin). However, the smaller, typically shallow water T. aduncus has been closely scrutinized in Australian and Japanese waters. As a result, there now exists a robust body of information spanning all three of Hinde’s levels of social analysis—interactions, relationships, and social structure—that may be unmatched in any other cetacean. Research on T. aduncus has contributed significantly to the social complexity hypothesis of large brain evolution and our understanding of delphinid mating systems, communication, and individual differences in foraging tactics within populations. Here, we focus on behavioral research at two primary sites, Shark Bay in Australia and Mikura Island in Japan, with additional observations of importance from other locales in each region.

Further details of the chapter can be found here http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-030-16663-2_16 or by dropping one of us a line.

All the best, Simon (on behalf of Richard, Mai and Tadamichi)
