              Much has been written about dolphins and whales, and excellent books exist especially on the charismatic bottlenose dolphins; and killer, humpback, and sperm whales. This book documents the research, from their feeding patterns to their acrobatic skills. It deals with the souther...n hemisphere 'dusky' dolphin.

              The Gulf of Mexico teems with a much greater number and range of whales, dolphins, and other mammalian species than was suspected only a few years ago. In The Marine Mammals of the Gulf of Mexico, Bernd Wursig, Thomas A. Jefferson, and David J. Schmidly provide information on all... known species, valuable identification tools, and up-to-date research on behavior, group sizes, reproduction, and underwater calls. The introduction presents an overview of the whales, dolphins, pinnipeds, and other marine mammals of the world, discussing their basic biology and outlining their differences. The authors then describe the characteristics of the Gulf that affect the marine mammal species that inhabit it or occasionally enter its waters. The main body of this important new guide provides a checklist of the species, keys to identification, and species descriptions of the marine mammals known or believed to occupy the Gulf. More than thirty color plates by marine artist Larry Foster and thirty-two color photographs illustrate these creatures. Another unique feature of this volume is a set of drawings of the skulls of all the Gulf species; these skull keys will at last enable individuals involved in the Gulf Stranding Network, a volunteer operation that rescues and recovers beached or stranded marine mammals, to easily identify species along the Gulf Coast. Finally, the book also discusses environmental problems of the Gulf as they affect marine mammals and considers the conservation and management tools needed to preserve them in their habitats. The Marine Mammals of the Gulf of Mexico will prove a useful reference for marine biologists, volunteers with scientific and rescueorganizations, and anyone else interested in further study of these animals.

              The exciting third edition of this already well-known and respected work, The Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals, features revisions of the comprehensive coverage in previous editions of such topics as taxonomy, systematics, evolution, anatomy/morphology, behavioral and physiological... ecology, and more, as well as new content on of topics of anthropogenic concern; modern information on results of emerging threats such as ocean noise (including intensive navy, industrial, and other sources); impacts of climate change; and cutting edge research and results on various aspects of evolutionary biology. The latter includes new systematics information, with several re-considerations of taxonomy. With contributions from and edited by world experts, this new edition is a critical resource for those in marine biology, from upper level undergraduate students attempting to get into a particular research topic to more established graduate students, researchers, and professionals. It also functions as a useful reference with more information on specific topics for those from related fields, such as ecologists, evolutionary biologists, and environmental scientists.
