Dolphins
About this network
This is a directed social network of bottlenose dolphins. The nodes are the bottlenose dolphins (genus Tursiops) of a bottlenose dolphin community living off Doubtful Sound, a fjord in New Zealand (spelled fiord in New Zealand). An edge indicates a frequent association. The dolphins were observed between 1994 and 2001.
