Publications List

Documents and peer-review publications from other surveys

Apart from the research based on JARPA/JARPA II and JARPN/JARPN II, ICR scientists engage in cetacean and other non-cetacean studies based on other research programs. This document list up the scientific documents derived from research activities other than JARPA/JARPA II and JARPN/JARPN II. Many scientific documents have been produced in collaborations between ICR scientists and scientists from other research organizations.
