Looks at the history and future of whales and dolphins, and describes their behavior
Essays by five biologists discuss past and present relationships between humans and whales, cetacean biology and behavior, personal experiences with whales, current research, and prospects for the future. In the NGS tradition, the story is told visually by numerous two- and full-page color photos, as well as smaller photos on nearly every page. Life history data for each type of cetacean is presented in a separate section. Whale-watching sites are listed. 11x12" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
