–Biographical sketch of Dr. William Hobbs. P. 282: {"Dr. Hobbs did much to introduce dugong oil as a substitute for cod liver oil, using it in all the diseases for which the latter long held reputation. He published a lecture on dugong oil under the title "Elaiopathy," to which reference is made in Lang's "Queensland." (Spongiopiline soaked in dugong oil was a favourite treatment for phthisis with Dr. Hobbs.)"}
  As far as I can determine, Hobbs' lecture "Elaiopathy" was published only in a newspaper, the Melbourne Argus, Sept. 19, 1857.

–Discusses the exploitation of Steller's sea cows and Australian dugongs. Estimates that eastern Australia once supported 1 million to 3.6 million dugongs (now reduced to an estimated 14,000), with over 104,000 in Moreton Bay alone (now an estimated 500 only). These historical estimates are considered too high by at least some dugong biologists.

–ABSTRACT: Mid-Cenozoic marine mammals of Alaska were isolated from the Arctic Ocean by Beringia and were thus part of a far North Pacific ecosystem. The amphicynodontid ?Kolponomos, a neocete whale, and a desmostylian were found in the latest Oligocene or earliest Miocene (approximately 23 Ma) Dutch Harbor Member of the Unalaska Formation, Aleutian Chain, Alaska. The Unalaska desmostylian is more derived than Cornwallius but more primitive than Desmostylus. Derived desmostylians are known from the early middle Miocene (16-15 Ma) Bear Lake Formation on the Alaska Peninsula and the Narrow Cape Formation on Kodiak Island. The Miocene Yakatat Formation has produced sparse mammal remains but records the onset of montane glaciation in southern Alaska.

Bloodman, Manatee Owner, and the destruction of the Turtle Book: Ulwa and Miskitu representations of knowledge and the moral economy.
Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 16(1): 31-45. DOI:10.1111/j.1467-9655.2009.01595.x. Mar. 2010.
–ABSTRACT: This article argues that comparative analysis in anthropology is particularly enlightening where contexts under study are most similar. Comparisons of this kind are especially useful in that they allow us to abstract the similarities, focus on the differences, and isolate the reasons for these. To demonstrate this the article considers how the peoples of Karawala and Kakabila, two Miskitu-speaking villages in Nicaragua, represent obscure aspects of processes implicated in the generation of wealth in terms of relations with occult others. In Kakabila, where capitalist penetration is weak and gift-giving remains important, these are represented in terms of relations, both socially reproductive and selfish, with 'spirit owners' who mediate access to wealth. In Karawala, where villagers have experienced proletarianization and social fragmentation, these processes find expression in stories of murderous 'foreigners' who expropriate blood, and a myth in which an iconic representation of communal responsibility, the Turtle Book, is destroyed.

Boater speed compliance in manatee zones: examining a proposed predictive model.
Society & Natural Resources: An International Journal 26(1): 95-104. 1 tab. 1 fig. DOI: 10.1080/08941920.2012.711434. Oct. 15, 2012.
–ABSTRACT: In Florida, recreational watercraft strikes are the single greatest cause of mortality among the endangered West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris). Vessel speed reduction zones are meant to minimize this threat, although boater compliance studies suggest that the current reliance on waterway signage and voluntary observance may be somewhat ineffective. Based on observation of vessels on the St. Johns River in Florida, and subsequent mail survey of observed boaters, this study attempted to better understand attitude importance and subjective norms with respect to boating behavior within the context of a predictive model. Fifty-five percent of observed vessels were noncompliant with the posted zone speeds. In general, observed and self-reported compliance behaviors were only partially consistent with the tested model. Findings suggest that messages to compel boaters to comply should foster an attachment to personally important attitudes and appropriate desires of family members, other boaters and law enforcement officers.

–ABSTRACT: This book describes the ecology and conservation issues of the West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus) in the San Juan river and Tortuguero canals (Nicaragua-Costa Rica). It also includes an introduction to the biology of the species. Manatees belong to the order Sirenia, the only group of aquatic mammals adapted to an herbivorous diet. Because of their aquatic life and type of diet, manatees posses a unique set of physiological and anatomic traits. These animals have a very low reproductive rate due to their lack of natural predators. This makes them very susceptible to overhunting. They are usually timid animals that inhabit coastal fresh and salt waters, and that feed as generalists from different kinds of plants. The distribution range of Trichechus manatus is restricted to warm waters of Atlantic America. During this century this distribution has been fragmented and their numbers have decreased, due mostly to hunting pressure. This species has been hunted by indigenous people and immigrants to the Americas for centuries, becoming an important piece of local folklore. The study area of this book includes the basins of the San Juan and Indio rivers and Tortuguero canals. This region harbors an extensive system of watercourses that make up excellent habitat for the manatee. Besides sharing a common landscape, the coastal communities of the area share a common sociocultural history. Manatees are found along most of the region in an almost continuous fashion and their numbers are higher than previously thought. The species became specially rare between the 60's and 80's and its numbers might be increasing presently, thanks to the setting of protected areas. Our knowledge of the local ecology of the species is scarce, due to difficulties to observe these animals. Local manatees show a crepuscular and nocturnal activity pattern, feed on emergent and floating vegetation and prefer lagoons from other kind of watercourses. The main threats to the population are hunting, use of gillnets, boat traffic, pollution and habitat loss. Though none of these threats look like it will end the population in the near future, it is vulnerable of extinction. The main positive point for the species survival on the region is the existence of an excellent network of protected areas on both sides of the border. Up to date some conservation actions have been carried out, but many others should be implemented to assure the species' permanence in the region.
  RESUMEN: Este libro describe la ecología y la problemática de conservación del manatí Trichechus manatus en la cuenca del río San Juan y los canales de Tortuguero (Nicaragua-Costa Rica). Además incluye una introducción a la biología general de la especie. Los manatíes pertenecen al orden Sirenia, el único grupo de mamíferos acuáticos adaptado a una dieta herbívora. Por su vida acuática y su tipo de dieta los manatíes poseen un conjunto de características anatómicas y fisiológicas propio. Al carecer de depredadores naturales, estos animales tienen una tasa reproductiva muy baja, lo que los hace extremadamente sensibles a la sobrecacería por parte de los humanos. Los manatíes son generalmente animales huidizos y difíciles de observar, que habitan aguas dulces y saladas cerca de las costas tropicales y que se alimentan de manera generalista de diferentes tipos de plantas. La distribución del manatí Trichechus manatus se restringe a las aguas cálidas del océano Atlántico americano. En el último siglo esta distribución se ha visto fragmentada y sus números poblacionales han disminuido, siendo la cacería la principal causa del declive de la especie. El manatí ha sido cazado durante siglos por las poblaciones indígenas y los pueblos que han ido emigrando a América, por esto la especie forma parte importante de la cultura y el folklore de la región. El área de estudio de este libro incluye las cuencas de los ríos San Juan e Indio y los canales de Tortuguero. Esta región alberga un extenso sistema de cursos de agua que constituye un excelente hábitat para los manatíes. Además de su unidad paisajística, las comunidades costeras de la región tienen una unidad sociocultural que trasciende las fronteras nacionales. Los manatíes se distribuyen de manera casi continua a lo largo de la zona y su población es mayor de la estimada previamente. La especie se hizo especialmente rara entre los años 60 y 80 en la región, y puede estar experimentando una recuperación en la actualidad gracias al establecimiento de espacios protegidos. Nuestro conocimiento sobre la ecología de la especie a nivel local es escaso debido a la dificultad de observar a estos animales. Los manatíes tienen un patrón de actividad crepuscular y nocturno influenciado por las mareas, se alimentan de plantas flotantes y emergentes, y prefieren las lagunas sobre otros cursos de agua. Las principales amenazas que pesan sobre el futuro de la especie en la región son la cacería, el uso de redes en los cursos de agua, el tráfico de embarcaciones a motor, la contaminación y la destrucción del hábitat. Aunque ninguna de estas amenazas parece que vaya a exterminar a la población en el futuro inmediato, ésta se encuentra en un equilibrio precario. El principal aspecto favorable para su supervivencia es la existencia de un excelente sistema de áreas protegidas a ambos lados de la frontera. Hasta el momento se han realizado algunas actividades destinadas a conservar la especie, sin embargo todavía quedan muchas actividades pendientes para asegurar que la especie sigue habitando la región a perpetuidad.

–ABSTRACT: Studying a species' habitat is a tool for researchers and stakeholders to find key ecological characteristics to be used in management actions. Freshwater systems comprise most of the habitat of Antillean manatees, however the habitat features of these systems are still poorly understood. The objective of this study was to explore habitat variables most related to the use of freshwater systems by the Antillean manatees in the lower basin of the Usumacinta River.

Adaptive stress response pathways induced by environmental mixtures of bioaccumulative chemicals in dugongs.
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY 49 (11):6963-6973. 5 figures. 2 tales. DOI: 10.1021/acs.est.5b00947. JUN 2, 2015.
–ABTSTRACT: To address the poorly understood mixture effects of chemicals in the marine mammal dugong, we coupled equilibrium-based passive sampling in blubber to a range of in vitro bioassays for screening mixtures of bioaccumulative chemicals. The modes of action included early effect indicators along important toxicity pathways, such as induction of xenobiotic metabolism, and some integrative indicators downstream of the molecular initiating event, such as adaptive stress responses. Activation of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) and Nrf2-mediated oxidative stress response were found to be the most prominent effects, while the p53-mediated DNA damage response and NF-?B-mediated response to inflammation were not significantly affected. Although polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) quantified in the samples accounted for the majority of AhR-mediated activity, PCDDs explained less than 5% of the total oxidative stress response, despite their known ability to activate this pathway. Altered oxidative stress response was observed with both individual chemicals and blubber extracts subject to metabolic activation by rat liver S9 fraction. Metabolic activation resulted in both enhanced and reduced toxicity, suggesting the relevance and utility of incorporating metabolic enzymes into in vitro bioassays. Our approach provides a first insight into the burden of toxicologically relevant bioaccumulative chemical mixtures in dugongs and can be applied to lipid tissue of other wildlife species.

Estimating cause-specific mortality rates using recovered carcasses.
Journal of Wildlife Diseases 45(1): 122-127. 1 tab. Jan. 2009.
–ABSTRACT: Stranding networks, in which carcasses are recovered and sent to diagnostic laboratories for necropsy and determination of cause of death, have been developed to monitor the health of marine mammal and bird populations. These programs typically accumulate comprehensive, long-term datasets on causes of death that can be used to identify important sources of mortality or changes in mortality patterns that lead to management actions. However, the utility of these data in determining cause-specific mortality rates has not been explored. We present a maximum likelihood-based approach that partitions total mortality rate, estimated by independent sources, into cause-specific mortality rates. We also demonstrate how variance estimates are derived for these rates. We present examples of the method using mortality data for California sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis) and Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
