Population Management and Genetic Structure of the Humpback Whale Megaptera novaeangliae in Western Australia (PhD)

This project consists of a large-scale genetic study of the Western Australian Humpback (Antarctic Area Group IV). The primary aim of this study is to determine whether Humpback whales in Western Australia (Antarctic Area Group IV) comprise distinct genetic subgroups and therefore unique conservation units. The purpose is to provide the information required to manage and protect this very valuable stock by determining which subgroups may be susceptible to impact by human activities.
