Offshore Wildlife of the North Atlantic
Michael H Tove
Offers a general introduction to each group of animals, followed by concise accounts of every species found in the Northern Atlantic. He particularly highlights previously undescribed field marks and behavioural patterns that make identification at sea much easier than before. Also included are range/abundance graphs for twelve locations in North America and six in Britain and Europe to help you plan where and when to view particular species.
"[Guide to the Offshore Wildlife of the Northern Atlantic] is the first guide dedicated to the Atlantic's offshore wildlife, north of the Tropic of Cancer. Not only does it cover all the cetaceans you might encounter in this area, it also includes seabirds, seals and sea turtles. Michael Tove writes from considerable first-hand experience - he was the first person to see a live True's beaked Whale - and his expertise is readily apparent. The book really does help separate even the most difficult species from each other."
