This comprehensive review includes much recent research material and is the only book exclusively devoted to the minke whale species.The scope of this book focuses on three main topics. The first emphasis is on the population biology of the minke whale. Then, it documents the historical and current exploitation by man. Finally, it evaluates the current size, status, and management of the many worldwide stocks of minke whales. It also includes a description of the birth and death processes that determine how and why the minke whale population varies from time to time. This is an excellent source for specialists in the fields of cetacean biology, population biology, and management of natural resources. Presented in an interesting manner, this work is also appreciated by students and technically interested lay-readers.
