- Title: Understanding how Ecological Forces Affect the Behavior of Whales and Dolphins
- Principal Investigator: Jeremy Kiszka
- Timeline: Ongoing
Institute researchers are studying how environmental conditions and ecosystem changes affect the sociality of several dolphin species across multiple systems (island-associated and coastal populations), and how the social structure of some species can evolve in space and time. We also investigate inter-species interactions and associations (polyspecific associations).
