'Marine Mammal Ecology and Conservation: A Handbook of Techniques' (released 5/8/2010) is an accessible text suitable for graduate students and professionals in the fields of marine mammal biology, conservation biology, and ecology, as well as nature conservation practitioners and marine mammal specialists.
Marine mammals command a high level of public attention, reflected in specific legislation for their protection and management in many countries. They also present particular challenges to ecologists and conservation biologists. They are mostly difficult to observe, they occupy an environment that is vast in its three dimensional extent, there are often perceived conflicts between marine mammals and people, and furthermore several species are now close to extinction.
