Most widely held works by Randall R Reeves
Guide to marine mammals of the world by National Audubon Society( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers 120 species of whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, and sea lions. Information about each species covers every aspect of the animal's anatomy, life cycle, and behavior. The guide delineates evolution, worldwide population, migratory routes, and habitats, and describes feeding habits, vocalizations, social organization, surface behavior, and threats to and chances for survival. The text for each animal is accompanied by up to three richly detailed full-color paintings by marine artist Pieter Folkens, full-color photographs illustrating typical behavior, and a map indicating the species' range and migration. Additional maps give water temperatures, ocean currents, and ocean floor geography. "Watching" guidelines include identification techniques, where and when to go, and how to deal with a stranded animal

Conservation and management of marine mammals by John R Twiss( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emphasizing the diverse issues surrounding the conservation of marine mammals, thirty-one experts review the history, current status, and future implications of national and international marine mammal legislation, the concept of ecosystem management, interactions of marine mammals with fisheries, the contemporary whaling debate, and public attitudes toward marine mammals. The contributors evaluate recent efforts directed at the Florida manatee, the Hawaiian monk seal, the North Atlantic right whale, and other endangered species. They also discuss strandings and die-offs, the practice of keeping marine mammals in captivity, and the regulation of marine debris pollution." "Providing insight into issues that involve a complex mixture of scientific, social, economic, and political considerations, Conservation and Management of Marine Mammals is a valuable reference for students, scientists, conservationists, and policymakers."--Jacket
The Bottlenose dolphin by Stephen Leatherwood( Book )

8 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of their exposure in marine parks, movies, and television as well as their presence in tropical and warm-temperature waters around the world, bottlenose dolphins are among the most familiar of marine mammals. Since they are relatively easy to obtain and they thrive in captivity, these dolphins have been used in a great variety of studies. Work with the bottlenose has provided insight into the sensory mechanisms, communication systems, energetics, reproduction, anatomy, and other aspects of cetacean biology. This volume presents the most recent biological and behavioral discoveries of bottlenose dolphins from different regions and compares bottlenose dolphins as a group with other species of animals

History of white whale (Delphinapterus leucas) exploitation in eastern Hudson Bay and James Bay by Randall R Reeves( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One objective of the present paper was to provide a more complete account of the catch history and to use all available data in making a new estimate of initial population size. A second objective relates to ongoing field work in the Eastmain region by other researchers. Census surveys, observations of behavior, and biological sampling might be accomplished and interpreted more efficiently if the following historical facts were known: (a) which river mouths were traditionally visited by white whales; (b) approximate dates of arrival at and departure from the river mouths by the whales; (c) routes followed and pattern of movement between rivers; (d) relative age- and sex-compositions of populations or parts of populations using the different river mouths; (e) year-to-year or within-year changes in "condition" of whales (e.g. gauged by their reported oil yield or by the qualitative comments of those who caught and flensed them); and (f) observations of social structure and behavior of whales, as observed and noted by early visitors to the Eastmain coast
