    ..Using this method, we estimated the age of sperm whale mtDNA diversity to be about 6,000-25,000 years, and when the uncertainty of R was accounted for, a range of about 1,000-100,000 years was obtained...

    ..The results are consistent with those from observational studies and whaling data indicating stable social affiliations, some degree of area fidelity and latitudinal range limitations in groups of females and juveniles...
