With the recent need for biological knowledge of cetaceans, this book is timely. ...This book is a good reference because it gives in a single volume a considerable amount of biological information... Overall, this is a useful and well-research handbook that belongs in the libraries of all cetacean researchers. Debra Palka, National Marine Fisheries Service, in THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY (2001)
