Reserve readings for
Marine Mammal Biology 1
Below is a list of papers available in the library, to be read by the dates specified in the syllabus. For further reading you can also refer to the citation lists at the back of these papers. Remember that both Allied Whale and I personally also have an extensive library of readings should you need further literature.
