The Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals is a comprehensive, scientifically accurate work devoted to all aspects of marine mammals, including their anatomy, physiology, evolution, behavior, reproduction, ecology, and disease, as well as issues of exploitation, conservation, and management. Special emphasis is given to marine mammal interaction with humans. Articles provide definitive facts about seals and sea lions, whales, dolphins and porpoises, and manatees and sea cows, as well as sea otters and polar bears. Each article is authoritative and up to date, prepared by one or more internationally recognized experts on the topic. In addition to providing information for scholars and researchers, the entries offer material for a high school or university level student, or even an interested general reader. The Encyclopedia includes the following features: * Over 1,400 pages of informative articles arranged alphabetically for convenient location of information * 283 separate articles commissioned especially for this volume and thoroughly peer-reviewed for accuracy * Articles written by the leading authorities on marine mammology from 20 different countries around the world * 840 figures and tables to support and amplify the written text, including 16 pages of special color plates * 1,700 cross references within the articles, providing links to other articles elsewhere in the book that amplify the subject at hand or give information about a related subject * Approximately 3,000 bibliography entries that accompany the articles, presenting sources chosen by the authors to provide additional material on the article topics * Extensive appendix including biographies of famous scientists, definitive list of all marine mammal species, and glossary of more than 1,000 terms * Comprehensive subject index that directs the reader to specific subjects discussed within the articles This volume is the latest in the highly successful series of one-volume encyclopedias from Academic Press.
