                             Dear Sir, madam,
    I would greatly appreciate receiving informations on dolphins
    reproduction and education (in french if it's possible).
    thank you in advance for your courtesy.
    sincerely yours,

    There are quite a few articles and questions and answers in the WhaleNet
    archive that would give you a lot of information about dolphin

    But perhaps the best place to go for a good summary article on dolphin
    reproduction would be the new Acaademic Press, Encyclopedia of Marine
    Mammals (Perrin et al., eds.), 2002, pp. 1015-1027. This article also has
    some good references listed.

    When you ask about "education", I assume you mean "cognition" and there is
    also an excellent summary article in this volume on Intelligence and
    Cognition, pp. 628-637.

    The following book published in French has some very basic information on
    dolphin reproduction:

    Sylvestre, JP 1990. Guide des Dauphins et Marsouins, Delachaux & Niestle
    S.A., Lausanne, Suisse, pp. 34-35 [ISBN 2 603 00744 0]

    Hope this helps as a starting point.

    Erich Hoyt

    Hope this helps as a start.
