Dear Jennifer

" I am trying to write a paper on the physiology of
whales using magnetoreceptors to navigate during their seasonal
migrations
but am having great difficulty finding primary literature resources."

Here are some good starts:
Look in a book called "Research on Dolphins" Bryden and Harrison eds.
(1986)
"The Cetacean Magnetic Sense- Evidence from Strandings" M. Kalinowska

M Kalinowska is a primary author on this field. She has an article in
Aquat Mamm (1985) 11:109-119; (1983) 10:17
also, Zoeger, Dunn and Fuller (1981) "Magnetic Material in the Head of a
Dolphin" Science213:892-894
Good Luck!
Peter
