Marine Mammals of the World A Comprehensive Guide to Their Identification 2nd Edition
This new edition of Marine Mammals of the World describes and illustrates newly discovered and rarely photographed species, making it the most comprehensive and up-to-date identification guide available.
This edition continues to meet the research-focused needs of marine biologists and conservation biologists by providing a tremendous influx of new photos, taking advantage of advances in digital and auto-focusing photography, and the emergence of marine mammal studies and “whale watching” around the world.
The book encompasses cetacean, pinniped, and sirenian species, as well as extinct species, and describes basic biology and taxonomic groupings of marine mammals. Free Get: CRC Handbook of Marine Mammal Medicine 3rd Edition
A book such as this cannot be produced without the assistance of a large number of people with diverse knowledge and skills. In addition to all of the people and organizations that we thanked for assistance with preparation of the first edition of this book (all of whom contributed to our getting to this stage), many others have provided invaluable help with preparation and developing materials for this second edition.
First and foremost we must thank our editors, Kristi Gomez and Pat Gonzalez, for their editorial assistance and in seeing this book through from the concept stage all the way to publication. We quite literally could not have done it without them.
