The work also shows that their social behavior is also demonstrated through dolphin human relations behaviors].

[Lundquist’s study offers species specific information on the behaviors of dolphins. His study narrows down to behaviors, which can be assessed at species level. His work attempts to show how travel and movements patterns are critical as dolphins’ social behaviors within a pod].
[The authors’ research is critical in demonstrating social behaviors in dolphins. The study also shows how such behaviors compare with those of other animals as well as human beings. The study also highlights on other random social behaviors are ecologically acquired and serve a specific social purpose].
[The author’s work demonstrates that part of dolphins’ social behavior involves echolocations mechanism of group location. Their work show how high frequency whistles assist in finding mates and social groups amongst dolphins].
