Physiology of Marine Mammals: Adaptations to the Ocean, explores how marine mammals live in the sea from a physiological point of view. This textbook considers the essential aspects of what makes a marine mammal different from terrestrial mammals, beyond just their environment. It focuses on the physiological and biochemical traits that have allowed this group of mammals to effectively exploit the marine environment that is so hostile to humans. Full-colour images and comprehensive, accessible content make this the definitive textbook for marine mammal physiology. 368 p.
