About the product

This large and comprehensive encyclopaedia, which covers all 72 species of toothed whales, includes the most recent scientific findings on the distribution, migration, behaviour and threats to toothed whales. Toothed whales can be found in a wide range of marine and freshwater habitats, and from the Arctic and Antarctic regions to the tropics. Some of the species can also be found living in large river systems such as the Amazon, Ganges, Indus and Yangtze. This publication will be of interest to all those who are interested in and concerned with the preservation of these large mammals. It will greatly facilitate the development and implementation of action plans that may help reduce the threats to many whale species.
