About this book

This new 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.

Media reviews

"One of the most attractive, well-produced and comprehensive guides ever published Whales, Dolphins and Seals is a tour de force for authors Hadoram Shirihai and artist Brett Jarrett. The lavishly illustrated paperback is a delight, with Jarrett's exquisitely crafted paintings, copious colour photographs and a text that is well laid out and highly informative. It really is a delightful book."
– Sunday Express (22nd October 2006)

"[...] this is an excellent buy and a must for cetacean lovers."
Birdwatch (December 2006)

"It is likely to become the definitive guide to these fascinating creatures."
– Saturday Guardian (25th November 2006)

"An excellent book. The layout for the species pages is eye-catching but easy to read. There is a pleasing mix of photographs and and high quality artwork for each species together with texts that cover descriptions, behaviour, distribution and similar species. An invaluable field guide at a very reasonable price."
