MetadataShow full item record
This thesis aimed to assess the population demographics of Southern right whales (SRW) Eubalaena australis, in South Australia. A combination of monitoring techniques were employed between 2014 and 2016 in the form of land and vessel based count and photo identification surveys. The study uses current and historical data (1991-2016) to assess distribution, abundance and life histories of SRW at two wintering aggregations in South Australia. Results provide information for recovery assessment and conservation management.
