Handbook of the Mammals of the World Volume 4: Marine Mammals
Don E Wilson, Russell A Mittermeier & Toni Llobet
Marine mammals include some of the most fascinating animals on Earth. Large, majestic whales and stunning, playful dolphins have provided mysterious companionship to humans at sea for hundreds of years. These magical creatures, along with the equally fascinating seals and sea lions, have developed a completely different set of adaptations from their terrestrial ancestors and relatives. Volume 4 of the HMW series provides complete accounts of all species and families in these important groups. Lavishly illustrated with colour photos showing different behaviours of all of them, the text contains the latest up-to-date information on all families of sea mammals.
This volume also includes a Special Chapter about Sea Mammal Conservation, by Roderic B Mast, Nataly Castelblanco-Martínez & Arlo H Hemphill.
Features up-to-date information on all families of marine mammals.
