- Isolation by environmental distance in mobile marine species: molecular ecology of franciscana dolphins at their southern rangeMartin Mendez
Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027, USA
Mol Ecol 19:2212-28. 2010..Our approach elucidated important ecological and conservation aspects of franciscana dolphins, and has the potential to increase our understanding of ecological processes influencing genetic patterns in other marine species...
- Genetic evidence highlights potential impacts of by-catch to cetaceansMartin Mendez
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology, Columbia University, New York, New York, United States of America
PLoS ONE 5:e15550. 2010..Given the social nature of many odontocetes (toothed cetaceans), we suggest that these potential impacts could be rather general to the group and therefore by-catch could be more detrimental than previously considered...

Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology, Columbia University, New York, New York, United States of America
PLoS ONE 7:e37473. 2012..These analyses indicate that our putative populations are demographically distinct and should be treated as such in Argentina's management plan for the harvesting of yellow anacondas...
