Dear Anders,
I found two articles on the High North Alliance website entitled: Brains,
Behaviour and Intelligence in Cetaceans
(http://www.highnorth.no/br-be-an.htm)and Brain size, body weight and
intelligence (http://www.highnorth.no/br-si-bo.htm). I hope this is what you
were looking for.
sincerely,
Martine
