Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals

 Redakcja: Bernd Würsig, JGM Thewissen, Kit M Kovacs

The third edition of the Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals covers the ecology, behaviour, conservation, evolution, form and function of whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, manatees, dugongs, otters and polar bears. This edition provides new content on anthropogenic concerns, the latest information on emerging threats such as ocean noise, and impacts of climate change. With authors and editors who are world experts, this new edition is a critical resource for all who are interested in marine mammals, especially upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and managers, and is a top reference for those in related fields, from oceanographers to environmental scientists.

This book's encyclopedic coverage of marine mammals has been fully revised and updated. Despite its size, it is easy to use. I recommend this book for anyone interested in marine mammals! - The Birdbooker Report "Its ease of use and interesting look will assure that it is a handy, and well-used, reference book for scientists in the field as well as for students looking for interesting topics for term papers. The second edition's new colorful look expands it's consumer base and makes it an excellent choice for high school and undergraduate university libraries." --Paul E. Nachtigall, University of Hawaii "This revision of the well-received first edition adds several new chapters in areas of marine mammal science that have changed significantly, e.g., climate change and the 'interface of ecology and conservation.' Somewhat fragmented topics are now combined into more comprehensive ones. Additionally, almost all entries are updated, and color photographs appear throughout. Each of the 260 chapters is authored by an acclaimed contributor and covers species and topics relating to anatomy, physiology, behavior, conservation, ecology, and more. Overall, this encyclopedia's content serves as an important reference source for marine mammals."
