Book News, Inc. Marine biologists and researchers present ten contributions comparing marine mammals with one another and with terrestrial mammals, providing a framework for fundamental biological and ecological concepts. They describe functional morphology, sensory systems, energetics, reproduction, communication and cognition, behavior, distribution, population biology, and feeding ecology. Also detailed are the creatures' physiological adaptations for such activities as diving, thermoregulation, osmoregulation, and orientation that enable marine mammals to exploit their aquatic environment. Includes information on marine toxicants and their possible effects on marine mammals. 9x11.5. -- Copyright © 2000 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved
