Guide to Marine Mammals of Alaska
Distributed for Alaska Sea Grant College Program
Guide to Marine Mammals of Alaska is the only book that exclusively covers all 29 marine mammal species of Alaska. Each whale, porpoise, dolphin, seal, sea lion, walrus, sea otter, and polar bear is described and illustrated. Color photos and surface profile drawings show Alaska marine mammals and compare similar species, and color range maps show distribution. Mammal characteristics and descriptions are presented in a format that allows fast, accurate identification at sea. The 80-page, richly illustrated book is printed on durable water-resistant paper, and is spiral bound to give years of service outdoors and in the office, classroom, and home. The 2007 (third) edition of this award-winning book has been brought up to date with the latest range and status information, and features outstanding artwork and 25 new photos.
