9780123735539: Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals

Marine Mammals are amongst the most charismatic and fascinating creatures on Earth. Both mysterious and fascinating biologically they share a long relationship with man - as creatures of myth, symbolic of the conservation movement and objects of commerce and exploitation and the worst that man can do. This thorough revision of the classic first edition brings this authoritative book right up to date. Articles describe both every species in detail, based on the very latest taxonomy, and a host of biological, ecological and sociological aspects relating to marine mammals. The latest information on the biology, ecology, anatomy, behaviour and interactions with man is provided by a cast of expert authors - all presented in such detail and clarity as to satisfy the research worker and the serious naturalist. Fully referenced throughout and with a fresh selection of the best color photographs available the Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals remains at the forefront as an indispensable reference. * Over 200 articles deal with individual species-and with topics ranging from anatomy and behaviour, to conservation, exploitation and the impact of global climate change on marine mammals. * Improves on the acclaimed first edition with new and revised chapters, and better cross referencing, glossary and Index * New Illustrations in colour show every species and document the topical articles From reviews of the first edition ".this book is so good ...a bargain, full of riches .. packed with fascinating up to date information ...I recommend it unreservedly it to individuals, students, and researchers, as well as libraries". - Richard M Laws, Marine Mammal Science. "This timely encyclopedia establishes a solid and satisfying foundation for current study and future exploration" Ronald J. Shusterman, Science
