Over the past several decades our field (along with other fields for some methods and techniques) has seen major advances in our understanding of the biology and ecology of many species because of new or improved methods and techniques. This collection of papers is intended to highlight the importance of such efforts to keeping our studies moving forward and expanding our knowledge base for marine mammals as well as provide a useful resource, especially for our young scientists, who are in the early stages of their studies.
