Abstract:

This field guide is designed to permit observers to identify the cetaceans whales, dolphins, and porpoises they see in the western North Atlantic, including the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the coastal waters of the U.S. and Canada. The animals described are grouped not by scientific relationships but by similarities in appearance in the field. Photographs of the animals in their natural environment are the main aids too identification. Author
