Dear Edith,

There is a great deal of information available about Northern right whale migration. You said that you already looked at this source:
http://whale.wheelock.edu/whalenet-stuff/rw_bib.html It has many of the best references.

Some other sites on the web are:
http://whales.magna.com.au/DISCOVER/RIGHT/ (North Atlantic right whales)
http://www.learner.org/jnorth/www/critters/whale/
http://www.graysreef.nos.noaa.gov/rwoverview.html
http://www.nafo.ca/publications/journal/j22/Moses.pdf
http://www.ea.gov.au/coasts/species/cetaceans/actionplan/whaleap5a11.html (southern right whales)
http://www.sfcelticmusic.com/js/RTWHALES/nprightw.htm#Technical (pacific right whales)
http://www.nafo.ca/publications/journal/j22/Moses.pdf

The Right Whale News will give you extra info on right whales, and info on more recent publications.

  Subject: migration of right whales

  Dear mrs. Schaeff,

  As librarian of the Centre of Environmental Science, Leiden University, The Netherlands I am looking for literature about "the migration of right whales".

  With this information (articles, reports) one of our students tries to calculate the carrying capacity of nature for the right whales.

  I have already consulted your interesting bibliography of right whales (WhaleNet).

  Can you recommend more recent literature on the migration of right whales?
  Perhaps you can e-mail a list of useful references?

  Thank you very much for your help.

  With kind regards,
