              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.
