Whales of the World

$14.10 USD

Whales of the World combines a comprehensive survey of these magnificent mammals with a history of their evolution and relationship to man. Ten chapters treat all aspects of the species' biology and natural history, exploring such topics as evolution, social structure, feeding, breeding, migration patterns, and environmental influences. A section on whales and man, which traces the history of whaling and looks closely at the industry today, is of special interest.
