This review is from: Whales,Dolphins and Seals: A Field Guide to the Marine Mammals of the World (Paperback)
This is a field guide to the marine mammals of the world. It covers all species of whales, dolphins, seals and sea cows (including species only found in freshwater). Two marine species of otters plus the polar bear have also been included.
Both the colour illustrations and the photos are excellent. Indeed, the photos, while small, are often quite stunning. Still, the book feels somewhat confused. Dozens of illustrations and photos, often of different species, are crammed into each page. Often, it's difficult to see where one species presentation ends and another begins. A species presentation might cover the bottom of one page and all of the next page.
Somebody should publish the same material, but with improved lay-out.
