9780004722733: Whales and Dolphins (Collins Gem)

A beautifully illustrated compact guide to every species of whale, dolphin and porpoise.

This Collins Gem is being reissued in flexibinding, providing the durability of a hardback with the flexibility of a paperback. The stylish new cover design will enliven this and 70 other bestselling Gems.

There is something special about whales, dolphins and porpoises. They are still shrouded in mystery, yet the little we do know about them is both astonishing and awe-inspiring. Collins Gem Whales & Dolphins is therefore the ideal introduction to these amazing creatures.

The entry for each whale, dolphin or porpoise includes:

A beautiful full-colour illustration and description of what the creature looks like

Details of size, geographical distribution and diet

Information on whether the species is under threat

Other sections cover the natural history of the whale, conservation efforts around the world and where to watch whales, dolphins and porpoises in the wild.
