There it is sitting on my desk, all 1,316 pages…the Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals.
Now this is no ordinary book, this book explains everything you ever wanted to know about marine mammals and then some. With more than 250 expert scientists and researchers contributing, it is a treasure trove of information. And for marine mammal obsessed people like me, this book is simply awesome.
My new project is to read the entire encyclopedia and post some of the incredible information I learn along the way; starting tomorrow with the first “A” article: Abundance Estimation. Sounds like it could be a good one…stay tuned…
And a big thanks to the Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals editors William F. Perrin, Bernd Wursig and J. G. M. Thewissen, you guys are awesome.
