This book is a really great find. It goes through the evolution of cetaceans and pinnapeds. It uses some wild termanology but they are all defined for you. It covers every aspect of marine mammal evolution. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in whales and dolhpins or seals and sea lions.

I bought this book for my Marine Mammals class and I love it. I usually don't keep my books at the end of the term, but I think this one's a keeper. It's really interesting and it's smaller than most text books so it's easy to read. It came really fast, within a couple of days with the standard shipping that was like $3.00. I bought 2 books for this class and saved $30.00 from what the school book store would have charged. Good deal.

Excellent resource for marine mammals of all kind. Lots of info on bone structure and hypothesis on how the different families, genus, and species evolved or are different from each other. Good illustrations. It helps to know your bone names first.

Este es uno de los libros basicos para los mastozoologos marinos, ya que se hace una revision sobre la evolucion de los mamiferos marinos.
