Cetology is a branch of marine mammal science that studies about eighty species of dolphins, whales, and porpoise, all of which are classified within the Cetacea order. Cetologists, who practice cetology, work to understand the distribution, development, behavior, and other aspects of cetaceans. The study of cetaceans began in the Classical era. About 2,300 years ago, Aristotle documented details about some cetacean species, calling them mammals, while traveling on the Aegean Sea with...
The Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) is one of three recognized species of bottlenose dolphin that can be found in the waters near southern Australia, South China, and India. Its range also includes the Red Sea and the eastern coastal areas of Africa. All bottlenose dolphins were classified as one species, the common bottlenose dolphin or T. truncates, until 1998 when the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin was found to be distinct. This species is distinct from other bottlenose...
The Burrunan dolphin (Tursiops australis) is one of three recognized species of bottlenose dolphin. It can be found in two areas of Victoria, Australia. One population can be found in the Gippsland Lakes, where about 50 reside, and one in Port Phillip, where about 100 individuals reside. Haplotypes of the Burrunan dolphin have been discovered in an area extending from the Spencer Gulf waters west to St. Francis Island. Because of its low numbers, it is thought to deserve protection from the...
The hourglass dolphin (Lagenorhynchus cruciger) is a rare species that can be found in Antarctic and subAntarctic waters. Most sightings of this species have been made in the southern waters near the Shetland Islands, off the coast of Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, and in the southern waters near New Zealand. It is thought that this dolphin does not congregate in large numbers in any area of its circumpolar range. Qouy and Galmard first recognized the hourglass dolphin as a new species in...
The long-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus capensis) is a species within the Delphinus, or common dolphin, genus that can be found in a fragmented range within tropical and warm temperate habitats. Its range includes western and southern areas of Africa, central California and Mexico, coastal regions of Peru, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, a large portion of western South America. The long-beaked common dolphin was not considered a distinct species until the 1990’s, along with all other species of...
