About this book

Wild dolphins are difficult to study, yet much has been learnt in recent years. This book assembles from a wide variety of sources the most interesting recent research on dolphin behaviour, with data on all species from killer whales to the bottlenosed dolphin. The text is fascinating not only for the information it gives on dolphins but also on the variety and means of the studies conducted.
