Main Article Content
Nameer et al. 2015 in their recent paper on vertebrate diversity of Kerala presents an erroneous analysis on marine mammals based on incorrect checklist produced by Nameer (2015). It is necessary that the following errors should be corrected by Nameer et al. (2015) and Nameer (2015) and corrigenda be published.Â This helps to prevent misleading information being repeatedly published in future.
