In 2008, Aquatic Mammals Journal launched a series titled Historical Perspectives in which esteemed colleagues provide a written essay of their perspective in a field related to marine mammal studies and are interviewed for a DVD record. The essays appear as articles in Aquatic Mammals, and DVDs are available for purchase on the Aquatic Mammals website.
Volume VII features interviews with: Mats Amundin, Birgitta Mercera, Claudia Gili, Bengt Röken, Geraldine Lacave, Eldon Bolton, Teresa Bolton, and Walter Munk. Two summary DVDs are also included with year 7 of the Historical Perspectives Series: Genesis of Their Careers and Field Stories 2. Year 7 DVDs are now available. You can order an individual DVD from Volume VII or order the complete set for Volume VII.
