Killer whales : the natural history and genealogy of Orinus orca in British Columbia and Washington by John Kenneth Baker Ford( Book )

23 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents updated results of over twenty-five years of killer whale research in British Columbia and Washington. Intended for both whale enthusiasts and researchers, it contains the latest information on killer whale natural history and presents a catalogue of close to 300 photographs of "resident" killer whales as well as a genealogical registry that enables readers to identify individual killer whales and their family groups. The technique of photographing the dorsal fin and grey saddle patch of whales has revolutionized the study of killer whales, allowing researchers to follow individuals over the course of many years."--BOOK JACKET

Northern resident killer whales of British Columbia : photo-identification catalogue and population status to 2010 by Graeme M Ellis( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Field studies of the life history and ecology of killer whale populations off Canada's Pacific coast have been conducted annually since 1973. These studies are based on the identification of individual whales from photographs of permanent, natural markings. In this report, we summarize abundance trends in the northern resident killer whale population between 1974 and 2010, and provide an updated photo-identification catalogue of individuals in this population, displayed in a matrilineal framework. At the conclusion of the 2010 field season, the population was composed of the 3 clans, 16 pods, and 35 matrilines, with 261 individuals alive (plus four missing and possibly dead). The population is currently more than twice its size in 1974, representing an average annual increase of 2.1%. Continued population monitoring by photo-identification is a key research activity in the recovery strategy for this Threatened population
Northern resident killer whales of British Columbia : photo-identification catalogue and population status to 2010 by Graeme M Ellis( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this report, the authors present a summary of the current population status of the northern resident killer whale population through 2010, and an updated photo-identification catalogue of individuals. This catalogue includes demographic and genealogical data for all members of the northern resident population, gathered from annual photo-identification population censuses and associated long-term visual monitoring respectively. It is intended to provide research colleagues, monitoring program personnel as well as professional and recreational marine wildlife viewers with a tool to facilitate their studies and enrich their observations.--Document

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annual photo-identification surveys conducted between 1973-75 and 2004 were used to estimate life history parameters and develop a population model for the northern resident population of killer whales that inhabits coastal waters of British Columbia.

An assessment of the potential for recovery of west coast transient killer whales using coastal waters of British Columbia = Évaluation du potentiel de rétablissement de l'épaulard migrateur du Pacifique nord-est vivant dans les eaux côtières de la Colombie-Britannique by John K. B Ford( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mammal-eating transient killer whales off Canada's Pacific coast are listed as threatened under the Species-at-Risk Act. This document presents a recovery potential assessment for west coast transient (WCT) killer whales to provide a basis for on-going recovery planning for this population. For this assessment, an archive of photo-identifications of individual WCT whales collected during 1479 sightings between 1974 and 2006 was used. A capture-recapture approach was applied to the analysis of this dataset and Bayesian statistical techniques were employed to estimate population abundance and dynamics.--Includes text from document
