Название: The Bottlenose Dolphin: Biology and Conservation
Авторы: Reynolds J., Eide S., Wells R.
"This excellent introduction on the biology of the bottlenose dolphin also provides a review of conservation issues and outlines current knowledge of dolphins in general. . . . for students, professionals, and anyone interested in the bottlenose dolphin." — Charles W. Potter, National Museum of Natural History
The Bottlenose Dolphin presents for the first time a comprehensive, colorfully illustrated, and concise overview of a species that has fascinated humans for at least 3,000 years.
After reviewing historical myths and legends of the dolphin back to the ancient Greeks and discussing current human attitudes and interactions, the author replaces myths with facts — up-to-date scientific assessment of dolphin evolution, behavior, ecology, morphology, reproduction, and genetics — while also tackling the difficult issues of dolphin conservation and management.
