Anderson, Paul K. (detail)
Dugong behavior: on being a marine mammalian grazer.
Biologist 61(4): 113-144. 10 figs. Nov. 1979.
–Excellent review of dugong ethology with many thought-provoking ideas and speculations, including observations on anatomy, locomotion, respiration and diving, feeding, social interactions, reproduction, defense against predators, resting and calving sites, responses to humans, daily and seasonal movements, and critical aspects of dugong habitat.
