    J Mol Evol 68:97-111. 2009
    ..These results highlight the complexity of making inferences from control region data alone and suggest that applying simple rules of DNA sequence analyses across species may be difficult...

    S Elizabeth Alter
    Department of Biological Sciences, Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University, Pacific Grove, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e35039. 2012
    ..Our results agree with previous genetic studies suggesting the historical size of the eastern gray whale population was roughly three to five times its current size...

    S Elizabeth Alter
    Department of Biological Sciences, Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University, 120 Oceanview Boulevard, Pacific Grove, CA 93950, USA
    J Hered 100:34-46. 2009
    ..Eastern gray whales are still recovering from the impacts of whaling on their breeding grounds, and these populations should be protected and monitored for future genetic changes...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:15162-7. 2007
    ..At previous levels, gray whales may have seasonally resuspended 700 million cubic meters of sediment, as much as 12 Yukon Rivers, and provided food to a million sea birds...
