In the wide sea, whales, dolphins and porpoises are our close relatives, leading lives much more complex than previously suspected. They live in all the world's oceans, many seas, and even some rivers. As a group, they include the largest animal known to have existed on the planet, one of the most powerful hunters of modern times, and some of the most intelligent animals in the world. Masters of the Ocean Realm provides a colourful, accessible introduction to how scientists study cetaceans and what they have learned. The book shows the interaction of whales, dolphins, porpoises, and human cultures around the world and discusses such conservation issues as tuna fishing, whaling, habitat degradation, pollution, and the threat of extinction. Numerous colour illustrations make the book appealing to a wide audience. Informative sidebars address topics such as whale intelligence, the mystery of mass strandings, and the tuna-dolphin controversy.
