Because of their exposure in marine parks, movies, and television as well as their presence in tropical and warm-temperature waters around the world, bottlenose dolphins are among the most familiar of marine mammals. Since they are relatively easy to obtain and they thrive in captivity, these dolphins have been used in a great variety of studies. Work with the bottlenose has provided insight into the sensory mechanisms, communication systems, energetics, reproduction, anatomy, and other aspects of cetacean biology. This volume presents the most recent biological and behavioral discoveries of bottlenose dolphins from different regions and compares bottlenose dolphins as a group with other species of animals.

"This is well represented in The Bottlenose Dolphin, a superbly edited, authoritative text of thirty-six chapters under nine major headings... The editors of The Bottlenose Dolphin are fine researchers and writers, and they have used their considerable skills to guide chapter authors to concise, logical, pleasant prose... I applaud the editors for taking their work so seriously, and for producing a book which presents a wealth of valuable up-to-date information on one of my very favorite marine mammals."
"Overall, this is a very good book for any biologist interested in the current work done with dolphins... The Bottlenose Dolphin is an important book for any marine mammal enthusiast. Read cover-to-cover or used as a reference source, it is a book worth owning."
"This volume abounds in material of interest to an informed general readership... In view of widespread public interest in bottlenose dolphins, this book should be an invaluable reference on the species. Recommended for public and college libraries."
