James, P S B R (1974) An Osteological Study of the Dugong Dugong dugon (Sirenia) from India. Marine Biology, 27 . pp. 173-184.
An osteological study of the dugong (sea cow) Du- gong dugon (MOiler) from India, based on complete skeletons of an adult male and a juvenile female indicated certain morphological variations with age. It has also revealed a close osteological similarity between the dugongs from India and the Red Sea. Based on a statistical analysis, regres- sion equations for certain typical skull measure- ments have been calculated; these equations, charac- teristic of the dugong from India, could be used for comparing dugongs of different regions.
