By Thomas A. Jefferson, Marc A. Webber, Robert L. Pitman, illustrations by Uko Gorter
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.
Uko Gorter created close to 300 illustrations of every species for this seminal publication. Including many subspecies and geographic varieties, as well as different sexes and age classes.
