'Everyone who loves the sea and what's in it should own this book.' Bill BrysonFrom the blue whale to the Indo-Pacific finless porpoise, this handbook is the most comprehensive, authoritative and up-to-date reference to each of the world's 90 species of cetaceans. With more than 1,000 meticulous and specially commissioned illustrations - complete with flukes, blows and dive sequences - it includes detailed annotations pointing out significant field marks, as well as extensive distribution and migration maps.

Many of the world's most respected whale biologists have collaborated on the text, helping to provide the ultimate guide to the identification, distribution, behaviour, life history and conservation of every species and subspecies of whale, dolphin and porpoise.
