Description
No species better underlines the damage done by humans to the great whale species than the right whale. This slow-moving, plankton-feeding giant was first hunted in European waters a thousand years ago. As whaling became more efficient they were indiscriminately slaughtered around the world. Even today, after seven decades of protection, most right whale populations show few signs of recovery, and they remain among the most endangered mammals in the world. This book is an excellent general introduction to right whales, illustrated with dramatic color photographs. Phil Clapham discusses the characteristics—life history, group life, reproduction, mortality—and ecology of these magnificent creatures, as well as the serious threats that right whales face and what can be done to protect them.
