About this book

Language: Trilingual in English, French, and Spanish

Includes a major account on the abundance, distribution, ecology and conservation status of 19 species of cetacean and 36 species of seabird recorded in the European Atlantic during 2000. In addition to the detailed species accounts, there are also articles on the cetaceans of the French Channel coast, a seismic survey of Faroe-Shetland Channel, and the implications of the Habitats Directive for marine mammals in the UK. Concerns over current threats to marine life are also represented by articles on cetacean bycatch, current threats to marine mammals in the Channel Islands, and the effects of shark finning.
