(p.207) Examining Cetacean Ecology Using Historical Fishery Data
The Exploited Seas

Tim D. Smith

Liverpool University Press

Tim D. Smith seeks to examine the ecology of cetacean species, by bringing together data from whaling logbooks, governmental records, the examination of historical environmental sources, and evidence from archaeological investigations, with the aim of creating a thorough and accurate history of the whaling industry and marine ecology. This final chapter raises the questions of changes in carrying capacity, breeding habitat, and breeding success of cetacean specifes, and concludes by finding gaps in records and previous analysis that the collaboration of whale biologists, ecolologists, climatologists and historians must seek to heal.
