Book Description :

The Bowhead Whale: Balaena mysticetus: Biology and Human Interactions covers bowhead biology from their anatomy and behavior, to conservation, distribution, ecology and evolution. The book also discusses the biological and physical aspects of the Arctic ecosystem in which these whales live, with careful attention paid to the dramatic changes taking place. A special section of the book describes the interactions of humans with bowheads in past and present, focusing on their importance to Indigenous communities and the challenges regarding entanglement in fishing gear, industrial noise and ship strikes. This volume brings together the knowledge of bowheads in one place for easy reference for scientists that study the species, marine mammal biologists, but, equally important, for everyone who is interested in the Arctic. Presents the only current book dedicated to this species Includes short, high-impact chapters that make it possible to review all bowhead biology in one compact volume Illustrated with never-before published photos of bowheads in their natural environment Provides a platform for an in-depth understanding of indigenous whaling

Book Description :

"Tissue samples and morphometric data were collected from 64 bowhead whales landed during the 1998-2002 subsistence hunts in Barrow and Kaktovik, Alaska. Our primary goal was to assess the health status of the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort Seas stock of bowhead whales. Ages of whales were determined via aspartic acid racemization of the eye lens nucleus, baleen stable carbon isotope analysis and morphometric and histologic indices. We investigated the gross and microscopic anatomy of organs and blubber, thyroid hormone concentrations, serum haptoglobin, vitamin A and E concentrations in liver, blubber and serum and essential element concentrations in liver and kidney. Thyroid hormone and vitamin A were also evaluated as potential biomarkers of organochlorine (OC) concentrations in blubber, liver and serum. Neither of these substances was found to correlate with the relatively low OC concentrations found in these mysticetes. Histological changes of interest included renal interstitial fibrosis, hepatic periportal fibrosis/pigmentation/lipidosis, splenic extramedullary hematopoiesis and pulmonary fibromuscular hyperplasia. Changes in the kidney and lung were related to both age and renal and hepatic Cd concentrations. Most of the histological differences observed did not appear to adversely affect organ function or health of the individual. Thyroid hormone concentrations were stable over age/sex/seasonal groups, however, pregnant females had significantly lower total and free thyroxine than non-pregnant adult females and other age-sex classes. Serum haptoglobin was measured as an indirect determinant of acute inflammation, with three reactors found among 51 whales examined. Liver contained the highest mean concentrations of vitamins A and E (followed by epidermis, blubber, and serum and serum, epidermis, and blubber, in order). Finally, blubber percent collagen was measured at 30 locations on each whale and was found to be stable by site and most depths, with the most internal region of the reticular dermis being the only exception. Overall, the bowhead whales were healthy. However, climate change, offshore development and increases in arctic pollution emphasize the importance of baseline data collection. An ongoing surveillance effort is recommended to ensure that the species will be viable for generations to come and to assure subsistence users of the robust and healthy status of this stock of whales"--Leaf iii.

Book Description :

In 1991, the Inuvialuit community celebrated a successful bowhead whale hunt, the first to occur locally for more than a half century. This book focuses on two aspects of the whale hunt: it describes events prior to, during, and after the hunt, and documents the basis of Inuvialuit interest in the bowhead, the relationship between subsistence and cultural identity, and the re-emergence of Inuvialuit traditions. In Recovering Rights, 'rights' relates to the population recovery of the Western Arctic Stock of the Greenland right whales (bowheads), and to the recognition of the rights of aboriginal people to harvest local resources essential to their needs.

Book Description :

Bowhead whales, Balaena mysticetus, are large baleen whales that are characterized by an Arctic distribution. In order to provide proper management recommendations to the International Whaling Commission, a panel of twenty-five microsatellite markers was developed. This panel consisted of pure cytosine-adenine (CA) repeats and was selected for their ability to consistently amplify and for their consistency for allele designations. This panel was utilized to investigate stock structure within the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort population of bowheads. Over thirty reports and manuscripts utilized these data for providing management recommendations to the International Whaling Commision. From this work it was concluded that there is presently one stock of bowhead whales within the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort seas. This data was also utilized to examine the genetic relationships of the remaining extant bowhead populations. The microsatellite data, in combination with sequences from the mitochondrial control region and the NADH dehydrogenase subunit 1 (ND1) region, were used to examine population structure. The Okhotsk Sea was identified as the most divergent population of bowheads. Relationships among the extant populations demonstrated high levels of effective gene flow between populations. Gene flow appeared to be female-biased in relation to the Okhotsk Sea, whereas gene flow between Canada and the Bering-Chukchi-Beaufort populations appears to be equal between the bowhead whale sexes.
