Adult/High School-Numerous color photographs, readable texts, and fun bits of trivia make this a solid introductory series for teens. Based on programs produced for the BBC/Discovery channel, Dolphins and Whales discuss anatomy, social structure, environment, food habits, echolocation, and relationship to humans with particular pleas for conservation and not theme parks. Fish covers environment, camouflage, ecology, electric fields, and mating. A star denotes a short bit of related trivia and elsewhere a triangle introduces a paragraph of similar information. Fully half of the space is devoted to the excellent-quality color photography; each picture is clearly labeled with a full sentence caption.
