New publication: Echolocation characteristics of franciscana dolphins
(*Pontoporia
blainvillei*) (Diogo D. Barcellos and Marcos C. de O. Santos)


Dear All,


We are pleased to share our new publications in Marine Mammal Science,
“Echolocation characteristics of franciscana dolphins (*Pontoporia
blainvillei*)” by Diogo D. Barcellos, and Marcos C. de O. Santos from
Laboratório de Biologia da Conservação de Mamíferos Aquáticos, Instituto
Oceanográfico da Universidade de São Paulo.


The franciscana dolphin, *Pontoporia blainvillei*, is a small odontocete
and the sole living member of Pontoporiidae. Its distribution is restricted
to the coastal shallow waters in the limited regions of southwestern
Atlantic Ocean. The study “Echolocation characteristics of franciscana
dolphins (*Pontoporia blainvillei*)” describes echolocation clicks of this
species around Anchieta Island, southeastern Brazil, using a non-invasive
methodology. Acoustic parameters described by this study provide new tools
for further investigations and future conservation action of *Pontoporia
blainvillei* in local waters.

All the best


Diogo
