Lineage Data were collected as part of the Darwin Plus project "Dolphins of the kelp: Data priorities for Falkland's inshore cetaceans". The study area shapefile was generated in QGIS using a 10 km buffer around Falkland Islands boundary. The polygon was simplified by smooothing boundaries and removing empty small areas within the main area. Study area has been subsequently divided into 12 strata.
