Marine mammals command a high level of public attention, reflected in specific legislation for their protection and management in many countries. They also present particular challenges to ecologists and conservation biologists. They are mostly difficult to observe, they occupy an environment that is vast in its three dimensional extent, there are often perceived conflicts between marine mammals and people, and furthermore several species are now close to extinction.

Marine mammals have some intriguing features in their biology - the ability to dive to crushing depths, to perform breath-hold dives that defy our current understanding of mammalian physiology, and many have an ability to hunt down prey using sophisticated sonar that we are only just beginning to understand. Many species also have complex social structures. We still have much to learn about these extraordinary animals so a comprehensive and authoritative overview of current methodology is now timely. The intention of this book is both to summarize the state-of-the-art and to encourage innovation and further progress in this research field.

Bruce Medal for his research in polar science and the Zoological Society of London's Scientific Medal. Dr. Don Bowen is a Senior Biologist at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. He is also an adjunct professor at Dalhousie University and a former Division Chief of the Marine Fish Division at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography and former editor of Marine Mammal Science.

Professor Sara Iverson is a faculty member in the Department of Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. She is a physiological ecologist and is a leader in the field of trophic ecology of marine mammals and seabirds through her development of fatty acid signature analysis to derive information about predator diets.
