Now in its third edition, this book provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the biology of all marine mammals. A succinct, yet indepth text devoted to the systematics, evolution, morphology, ecology, physiology, and behaviour of marine mammals. Earlier editions of this valuable work are considered required reading for all marine biologists concerned with marine mammals, and this text continues that tradition of excellence with updated citations and an expansion of nearly every chapter that includes full colour photographs and distribution maps. Provides a phylogenetic framework that integrates phylogeny with behavior and ecology. Also features chapter summaries, further readings, an appendix, glossary and an extensive bibliography.
