This study was realized as part of Elena Valsecchi's PhD project, which involves using microsatellite markers to study social organization among North Pacific humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) on their Hawaiian breeding ground (in collaboration with Mark Ferrari and Debbie Glockner-Ferrari). This study is based around many hundreds of fragments of sloughed skin representing over 600 individuals. Bill Amos is interested in many aspects of the application of molecular techniques to understanding population structure and breeding systems of marine mammals. Increasingly he is turning his attention towards the mutational mechanisms which lie behind the tools being used, with the ultimate aim of deriving improved measures for parameters such as genetic distance.
