Berta, Annalisa (Editor).

Currently consisting of 90 species, the order Cetacea contains some of the most diverse, intelligent, and elusive animals on the planet. Highly migratory, the huge distances they cover and the depths they dive mean we catch only the merest glimpse of their lives. Technological advances have, however, increased our understanding, and for the first time, this book gathers together all the most interesting new research to offer detailed profiles of each species, alongside the information needed to identify them. This title combines highlights from the latest scholarly studies of the nature and behaviour of the world’s whales, dolphins, and porpoises, with a hardworking field guide for use in observing these animals in the wild. Beautifully illustrated, and highly accessible, this book will become a favourite of naturalists and professionals alike.
