Format: Paperback
One of the most amazing compliations of research papers you can find in a single publication about the social framework of dolphins. If you are into dolphins this is a must read. You dont need to be a scholar to read this book. All you need is passion and love for this wonderful non-human animal. If you are a scholar, then you definitely need this book

HASH(0x91df8ea0) out of 5 stars The Best Book on Dolphins 19 April 2002
By Andy Ridinger - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In all my reading on cetaceans, this is by far the most comprehensive, science-oriented book I've ever found. Ms. Pryor and the late Dr. Norris are both among the most highly qualified people on the planet to write (and edit a book) about dolphins, and both contribute their own chapters to this wonderful compendium of research from experts in a number of fields. Subjects covered are diverse, and encompass many topics I had not seen in other books, such as analysis of teeth as an indicator of age and wellness, the behavior of dolphins inside tuna nets, an in-depth analysis of feeding and hunting strategies, and many other intriguing facets of cetacean behavior.
This book is a "must-read" for anyone who wants to separate fact from myth and become better grounded in scientific cetacean studies.
