mms12031-sup-0001-TableS1.docWord document59KTable S1. Details of encounters with groups of ≥3 noncalf southern right whales made around mainland New Zealand between 2003 and 2010, in which at least one whale was either biopsied or identified photographically. The table includes the number of biopsies collected (Nbiopsy) and the number of individual whales(Nwhales), males (Nmale), and females (Nfemale) identified from DNA profile data. The number of individual whales identified through photo-identification is also shown (NID).
mms12031-sup-0002-TableS2.docWord document59KTable S2. DNA profiles for southern right whales captured (A) on the mainland wintering ground in two separate years and (B) matches between the mainland New Zealand (NZ) southern right whale DNA profile catalog and the Auckland Islands, NZ subantarctic DNA profile catalog for the 2009 field season. DNA profiles comprise genetically identified sex (Sex), mitochondrial control region haplotype (mtDNA: haplotype code as described in Carroll et al. 2011b) and multilocus genotype. The probability of identity (PID) and number of matching loci are also given in support of the match. The mainland NZ and the Auckland Islands DNA profile catalog for the 1995–1998 and 2006–2008 field seasons were previously compared by Carroll et al. (2011b). Missing data at a locus are denoted by 0/0.
