a consequence, in order to develop strategies for monitoring marine mammal
status: this concept usually uses comparisons of current abundance and
distribution data with a supposedly undisturbed initial situation where
populations would be in equilibrium with their habitats and resources.
Health status: often describes the main pathologies
and causes of death, including nutritional state and contamination by
pollutants, all being processes that determine reproduction and survival of
status: this is used to describe fecundity and mortality parameters which
may lead to changes in abundance and distribution.
Demographic status: this is used to describe fecundity and mortality parameters which may lead to changes in abundance and distribution.
Conservation status is the ultimate criteria allowing one to state that a population has changed. However, demographic and health statuses of a population are also of considerable use for management purposes as they permit on-going processes to be identified before they have fully expressed their effects on population abundance and distribution. This allows relevant management decisions to be taken earlier.
