Sex-specific patterns in demography of bottlenose dolphins in coastal and estuarine waters
Sprogis, K., Pollock, K., Raudino, H., Allen, S., Kopps, A., Manlik, O., Tyne, J. and Bejder, L. (2016) Sex-specific patterns in demography of bottlenose dolphins in coastal and estuarine waters. 2016 Research Findings: Bulletin 6.11 Wildlife Biology & Conservation .
Inherent difficulties in determining the sex of free-ranging, sexually monomorphic species (where both sexes look the same) often prevents a sex-specific approach to their study. However, accounting for sex-differences in population parameters can have important conservation and management implications, as one sex may be more susceptible to threats than the other.
