Abstract

In recent years, intensified field observations have been made over large sections of the migratory range of the gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus Lilljeborg). These observations have produced a much clearer picture of its behavior and natural history. Since the observations and writings of Captain Charles Scammon (1874), behavioral biologists have been trying to explain repetitive patterns of activities seen in the gray whale along a corridor from Beringia to the lagoons of Baja California, Mexico.
