Item description for Whales of the North Atlantic by Pierre-Henry Fontaine...

How much weight does a whale calf gain in one hour? What enables a sperm whale to remain in a single dive, often at great depths, for up to 90 minutes? Here for the first time in a single volume are answers to these questions and every other one we may have about the engaging, compelling creatures that are whales. Whales of the North Atlantic is intended for students of biology, the inquisitive, friends of nature, people who want to gain the most from a whale-watching tour, or those who simply want to broaden their general knowledge.

Its straightforward presentation and original colour photographs provide content that every reader will find enjoyable and enriching. The author, Pierre-Henry Fontaine, has gathered together for this work information from a wide range of sources, including specialized texts and his own discoveries. The result is more than a synthesis of knowledge; it is a superb achievement in scientific popularization that will enable the reader to share his passion for whales. Careful to ensure the accuracy and quality of the information presented, the first part explains key topics on cetaceans - their specific environmental adaptations, pollution and its effects, strandings, feeding, and others. The second part of the work consists of fact sheets that provide detailed, complete descriptions of each species.

Reviews - What do customers think about Whales of the North Atlantic?

Sharing a passion for leviathans  Oct 19, 2002
Guides like the Peterson's and Audubon series are great but sometimes leaving me wanting to know more than the name and distribution of an animal. While this book is also a great guide, with Atlantic species of whales portrayed in the back half, the real surprise comes with the short photo-essay chapters that make up the first half. Packed with color photos and drawings, the author makes you want to think about and visualize the unique adaptations of whales that serve them for life at sea. The photos alone make this book is a real bargain, especially in paperback. As a compact field guide/ biology text, this is my favorite gift for young biologists interested in whales.
