Product Description


This book deserves prominent placement on the shelf of anyone who cares about the future of marine mammals. It covers all the major conservation issues of our day and defines a research agenda that should be embraced wherever marine mammals occur. A worthy successor to Twiss and Reeves, we now have Marine Mammal Research as our touchstone for the challenges that face us.

(James Mead, Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History)

Should appeal to a wide variety of libraries and readers... interested in marine biology and conservation of those captivating animals.


A thoughtfully written and edited compendium... it deserves to be on the shelf of every serious marine mammalogist researcher, and should become well-thumbed.

(Aquatic Mammalogy)

The book superbly covers some of the most important conservation issues of marine mammals.

(Bernd Wursig Quarterly Review of Biology)

An essential book for marine mammal researchers, oceanographers, regulators, and anyone called to help in the effort to save marine mammals from extinction.

(Southeastern Naturalist)

A very valuable compendium of state-of-the-art scientific knowledge... A must in the bibliographic luggage of anyone concerned with marine mammal conservation, regardless of nationality or region of concern.

(Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara Fins)
