The Bowhead Whale: Balaena mysticetus: Biology and Human Interactions covers bowhead biology from their anatomy and behavior, to conservation, distribution, ecology and evolution. The book also discusses the biological and physical aspects of the Arctic ecosystem in which these whales live, with careful attention paid to the dramatic changes taking place. A special section of the book describes the interactions of humans with bowheads in past and present, focusing on their importance to Indigenous communities and the challenges regarding entanglement in fishing gear, industrial noise and ship strikes. This volume brings together the knowledge of bowheads in one place for easy reference for scientists that study the species, marine mammal biologists, but, equally important, for everyone who is interested in the Arctic. Presents the only current book dedicated to this species Includes short, high-impact chapters that make it possible to review all bowhead biology in one compact volume Illustrated with never-before published photos of bowheads in their natural environment Provides a platform for an in-depth understanding of indigenous whaling

This report documents changes in the summer range of the bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) throughout postglacial time, for the central Canadian Arctic between the Beaufort Sea and Baffin Bay, as compared to changes in frequency of penetration of boreal driftwood during the same time interval in the same area. Variations in Quaternary climate are also considered.

In 1991, the Inuvialuit community celebrated a successful bowhead whale hunt, the first to occur locally for more than a half century. This book focuses on two aspects of the whale hunt: it describes events prior to, during, and after the hunt, and documents the basis of Inuvialuit interest in the bowhead, the relationship between subsistence and cultural identity, and the re-emergence of Inuvialuit traditions. In Recovering Rights, 'rights' relates to the population recovery of the Western Arctic Stock of the Greenland right whales (bowheads), and to the recognition of the rights of aboriginal people to harvest local resources essential to their needs.

Aerial surveys of the summertime distribution of bowhead whales in the southeastern Beaufort Sea have shown that the distribution of bowheads has been quite variable over the four years of study, 1980-83. This report presents the results of an investigation of the relationship between the observed distribution of bowhead whales in the Canadian Beaufort Sea and the physical and meteorological patterns that might affect the distribution of zooplankton in the Beaufort Sea. The overall aim of this study was to identify easily-monitored parameters that could be used to predict bowhead whale distribution.

The behaviour of bowhead whales in the eastern part of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea or near the Alaska/Yukon border were observed from an aircraft from Sept. 12 to Oct. 15, 1981. Some observations were made when the whales were exposed to noise impulses from seismic vessels and compared with those that were not.
