Great Whales.

John Bannister .  CSIRO Publishing


Australian Natural History Series

This book provides a detailed account of six species of these extraordinary mammals.

Main species described include blue whale, fin whale, humpback whale, sei whale, Bryde's whale and southern right whale.

As well as the seven great whales, a smaller species - the minke whale - is included because of its special interest to Australians. The book describes whales' highly specialised mammalian structure and biology, and the history of people's association with them, at first through legend and wonder, then whaling and more recently whale watching. It also looks at their past and current status, and the conservation initiatives that are in place to protect them from existing or potential threats.
