      Surveys for shushuks Platanista gangetica were conducted during January to April in Kaptai Lake and the southern rivers of Bangladesh. A population of at least dolphins was recorded in the Karnaphuli and Sangu rivers and connecting canal. The overall encounter rate was dolphins per km. Density was highest in the lower reaches of the Sangu, where Cited by: Amazon River dolphins were until recently considered to be of one species by most authors, Inia geographical range of this dolphin is vast (), complex and fragmented, with some populations probably isolated for millions of years and having become genetically and morphologically r these differences are sufficient to justify the recognition of Cited by:

      Dolphins (Odontoceti) are a group of 44 species of toothed whales or are dolphins in every ocean on Earth, and there are freshwater species of dolphins that inhabit rivers in South Asian and South American. The largest dolphin species (the orca) grows to more than 30 feet long while the smallest, Hector's dolphin, is just feet in Author: Laura Klappenbach. On the "Workshop on the Biology and conservation of the River Dolphins", which was held in Institute of Hydrobiology, Wuhan in October, , we reported that there was approximately baiji surviving in the river (Chen et al, ). Since then, we have made 15 investigations in the middle and lower reaches of the river, days in total.

    The Indus River dolphin (Platanista gangetica minor) is a freshwater cetacean that occurs only in the Indus River system in Pakistan and review provides a comprehensive summary of issues surrounding Indus dolphin conservation, and includes a description of their distribution, the threats they face and a discussion of conservation and research activities, options and by: Ganges River dolphin, Platanista gangetica gangetica, is one of the three obligatory freshwater dolphins in the world and is distributed in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna and Sangu-Karnaphuli River Author: Ravindra Kumar Sinha.

River dolphins are a polyphyletic group of fully aquatic mammals that reside exclusively in freshwater or brackish are an informal grouping of dolphins, which itself is a paraphyletic group within the infraorder river dolphins comprise the extant families Platanistidae (the Indian dolphins) (Old World family), Iniidae (the Amazonian dolphins) and Families considered river dolphins:.

“[This book] contains many good illustrations of the majority of extant species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises (cetaceans). It also provides a general overview of the systematics and evolution of cetaceans as a group and very brief summaries of anatomy, feeding, life history, range, and conservation issues for each species.

True river dolphins as well as marine dolphins that frequent freshwater systems are large animals that have traditionally gone unnoticed by the general public and, in a certain sense, by marine mammal specialists as well.

In fact, only a limited number of researchers have investigated the biology of these dolphin species. This is quite surprising given that these species are.

Interest in marine mammals has increased dramatically in the last few decades, as evidenced by the number of books, scientific papers, and conferences devoted to these animals.

Nowadays, a conference on marine mammals can attract between one and two thousand scientists from around the world. This upsurge of interest has resulted in a body of knowledge 5/5(1).
