"This book represents an authoritative and up to date account ofour understanding of the biology of marine mammals. Although itdoes include quite a bit of technical detail, the inclusion ofsimple chapter summaries and numerous explanatory boxes, ensurethat it will be accessible to a range of readers from undergraduatebiology students to professional marine mammal biologists. If Itaught an undergraduate course in marine mammal biology, I wouldmake it my recommended text. As a marine mammal biologist, I knowthat I will be reaching for it often over the next few years."Marine Mammal Science "This is a very well illustrated text dealing with a fascinatinggroups of animals. Although it is an advanced text (the'introductory' nature alluded to being best for those with somebiological training) there is much to gained for the beginner.There is a wealth of detail which could be used in many educationalcontexts making this book more of a reference aid than straighttextbook. It provides information on mammal biology helpful indiscussions about broader ecological aspects which cannot easily befound elsewhere." TEGNews "In 14 chapters, some 27 specialists have captured the essenceof all asepcts of life forms - behavioural characteristics, ecologyand conservation needs - of 121 species of marine mammals occupyingthree taxonomic orders... A must for college and universities thathave storng biology, ecology, or marine biology programs, as wellas for larger public libraries." CHOICE "This book, intended for students of marine biology, ecology, orevolution, presents a broad spectrum of topics in remarkabledetail." Northeastern Naturalist "This book successfully surveys the whole of marine mammalbiology. Previous attempts are dated or less sweeping and so Irecommend that all marine mammalogists own or at least have accessto this book." Trends in Ecology and Evolution "I think Hoelzel has timed this quite nicely as there isdefinitely a demand for such a book, and there have been a numberof scientific breakthroughs in the last 10-15 years that haverevolutionised our understanding of this subject." Dr RobHarcourt, Macquarie University, Australia "This is an exciting proposal, describing a book that is longoverdue. Hoelzel is an innovative and productive scientist with aflare for writing, and he is as well placed as any to steer avolume of this scope and complexity to a successful conclusion."Dr Tony Martin, British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge

Reseña del editor:

This work provides a general introduction to the biology of marine mammals, and an overview of the adaptations that have permitted mammals to succeed in the marine environment. Each chapter, written by experts in their field, offers an up-to-date review and presents the major discoveries and innovations in the field.
