About this book

Language: French

This field guide is a complete and convenient reference to every species of cetacean, pinniped and sirenian in the world, along with the Marine and Sea Otters and the Polar Bear. Every species is illustrated with colour paintings and photographs, chosen to illustrate the key field marks which can be used to separate each species in the field.

The author's unique depth of experience and knowledge, coupled with the artist's unrivalled skill, have come together to produce a neat, practical field guide that will enable any observer to quickly identify any mammals they may encounter at sea.

Summary in French:
A la fois guide d'identification et guide de terrain, ce livre présente tous les mammifères marins existants : dauphins, baleines, phoques et siréniens, auxquels s'ajoutent l'ours blanc et les loutres marines. Chaque espèce est traitée de la manière suivante : fiche d'identification, espèces proches, écologie (structure sociale, sauts, sonde, régime, reproduction, longévité) et variations (âge et sexe, mensurations, taxonomie, répartition, populations).

En plus des cartes de répartition, l'observation sur le terrain est facilitée par la présence de nombreuses photographies et illustrations. Chaque espèce est ainsi représentée avec précision (femelle adulte, immature, mâle adulte en vues dorsale et latérale).
En fin d'ouvrage figure une liste des meilleurs sites d'observation. Complet et pratique, ce guide unique s'adresse à la fois aux spécialistes des mammifères marins et aux amateurs d'observation en mer.
