This is the first complete field guide to the world's marine mammals. It covers the field identification -- including geographical, sex and age variation -- of all the whales, dolphins, seals and sea cows, plus the Walrus, Polar Bear and marine otters. Similar species are shown together for ease of comparison. Whales, Dolphins and Seals features more than 460 full-colour photos, over 500 beautiful new colour illustrations and 124 colour distribution maps in a genuinely portable format for only £12.99.
Hadoram Shirihai is a leading expert on field identification and an accomplished photographer. Among his many published works are the award-winningA Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife, Sylvia Warblers and The Birds of Israel. He is a strong advocate of the value of personal field experience and has travelled the world's oceans extensively in search of seabirds and cetaceans. He has now seen most of the species described in this book and is currently working on a guide to the world's albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters.
Brett Jarrett is one of the world's foremost marine mammal artists. He has field experience of 98 species during 30 years of marine mammal watching and has worked extensively in Antarctica. His published work includes the plates in the award-winning A Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife. More of his work can be seen at www.brettjarrett.com
The field guide has attracted international cooperation, with a broad scientific panel of referees, including world experts such as Peter Evans, William Perrin and Robert Pitman. The mapping team, Kelly Macleod and Dylan Walker, are highly respected cetacean observers and researchers, and they have produced the most up-to-date and informative distribution maps for marine mammals ever published.
