Currently, the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) has listed about species (roughly 25% of all known mammals), as being at some risk of extinction. Several factors contribute to a species' vulnerability to human-induced extinction.

Interest in marine mammals has increased dramatically in the last few decades, as evidenced by the number of books, scientific papers, and conferences devoted to these animals. Nowadays, a conference on marine mammals can attract between one and two thousand scientists from around the world.

This upsurge of interest has resulted in a body of knowledge which, in many cases, 5/5(1). * Contains superb photographs of every species of marine mammal for accurate identification * Authors’ collective experience adds up to 80 years, and have seen nearly all of the species and distinctive geographic forms described in the guide * Provides the most detailed and anatomically accurate illustrations currently available * Special emphasis is placed on the identification of species.

Specifically, marine mammals are dying off, and the pace at which they’re doing so is alarming. The article, by Bradley van Paridon, focuses on a study headed by wildlife epidemiologist and immunologist Claire Sanderson.

It suggests that, between andone-sixth of all marine mammal species have experienced a die-off. With coverage on all the marine mammals of the world, authors Jefferson, Webber, and Pitman have created a user-friendly guide to identify marine mammals alive in 5/5(3). The book encompasses cetacean, pinniped, and sirenian species, as well as extinct species, and describes basic biology and taxonomic groupings of marine mammals.

With coverage on all the marine mammals of the world, authors Jefferson, Webber, and Pitman have created a user-friendly guide to identify marine mammals alive in nature (at sea or on the beach), dead specimens “in hand”, and also to identify marine mammals based on features of the skull.
