Lineage tranding records were contributed by: the Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme and the Centre de Recherche sur les Mammifères Marins. Data were filtered to remove obvious location errors. The filtered dataset was then used to generate composite presence-only rasters in 0.25 degree resolution.
