Fantastic book on the Norwegian killer whale distributed by NHBS.
John Stenersen, leading nature photographer, and Tiu Simila, the leading authority in Norway on killer whales, document through stunning colour photography and informative text, killer whale distribution, lifespan, the latest research, and an excellent chapter on identification, be it visual, acoustic or through behavioural studies. Also covered are killer whale migrations, the study of killer whale families and, perhaps most importantly, conservation and the future for the killer whale.
