Recent Advances in Whale-Watching Research: 2006–2007
Abstract:Whale-watching research encompasses a wide variety of disciplines and fields of study, including monitoring the biological impacts of whale-watching activities on cetaceans and assessments of the effectiveness of whale-watching management and regulations, to the sociological and economic aspects of whale watching on communities hosting such activities. One field of study that is attracting more attraction is the conflicting uses of marine mammals as a resource: nonconsumptive (whale watching) versus consumptive (whaling). This article is the latest in a series of annual digests that describes the variety and findings of whale-watching studies published since June 2006.
