This field guide is a complete reference to every species of cetacean, pinniped and sirenian in the world, along with marine and sea otters and the polar bear. Every species is illustrated with colour paintings and a collection of photograhs, chosen to show the key field marks which can be used to separate each species in the field.
"One of the most attractive, well-produced and comprehensive guides ever published 'Whales, Dolphins and Seals' is a tour de force for authors Hadoram Shirihai and artist Brett Jarrett." "The lavishly illustrated paperback is a delight, with Jarrett's exquisitely crafted paintings, copious colour photographs and a text that is well laid out and highly informative." "It really is a delightful book." Sunday Express (22nd October 2006) "A bargain at GBP12.99, this is an excellent buy and a must for cetacean lovers." Birdwatch (December 2006) "It is likely to become the definitive guide to these fascinating creatures." Saturday Guardian (25th November 2006) "An excellent book. The layout for the species pages is eye-catching but easy to read. There is a pleasing mix of photographs and and high quality artwork for each species together with texts that cover descriptions, behaviour, distribution and similar species. An invaluable field guide at a very reasonable price." BTO News (March/April 2007) "This beautifully illustrated and informative text has fast become the definitive guide to the marine mammals of the world." WDCS
