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

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 495 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
