The location and shapes of cetacean pelvic remnants.
I have participated in the necropsies of over fifty large whales and over one hundred porpoise and dolphins. In addition I have visited several museums and universities with whale collections to photograph the pelvic bones of various cetaceans.
I am a retired high school science teacher who involved students in whale necropsies for many years. I collect, photograph and catalog the pelvic remnants of a wide variety of cetaceans. Some of these photographs can be seen on the WHOI web site at http://www.whoi.edu/science/B/whalepelvics.
