This study reports on a demographic reconstruction of the bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) using multiple genetic markers. The bowhead is a large and long-lived marine mammal species that has been hunted by Inuit communities for many centuries. A dynamic demographic history is reported in which connections between life-history characteristics and ecosystem variability over time are implicated as major demographic determinants, which provides deep historic context to current management strategies.
