From: Ancient DNA reveals that bowhead whale lineages survived Late Pleistocene climate change and habitat shifts

Figure 2

Predicted suitable habitat for right whales during (a) the Last Glacial Maximum and (b) the Holocene; and for bowhead whales during (c) the Last Glacial Maximum and (d) the Holocene. Red areas correspond to core suitable habitat as defined in the Supplementary Methods. Locations of the samples used in this study are marked as: Late Pleistocene bowhead whale subfossil samples (blue squares); Early Holocene bowhead whale subfossil samples22 (blue circles); and Early Holocene right whale subfossils (purple squares).
