The Anatomy of Dolphins: Insights into Body Structure and Function is a precise, detailed, fully illustrated, descriptive, and functionally oriented text on the anatomy and morphology of dolphins. It focuses on a number of delphinid species, with keynotes on important dolphin-like genera, such as the harbor porpoise. It also serves as a useful complement for expanding trends and emphases in molecular biology and genetics. The authors share their life-long expertise on marine mammals in various disciplines. Written as a team rather than being prepared as a collection of separate contributions, the result is a uniform and comprehensive style, giving each of the different topics appropriate space. Many color figures, which use the authors’ access to wide collections of unique dolphin and whale material, round out this exceptional offering to the field. Includes high-quality illustrations, drawings, halftone artwork, photographic documentations, microphotos, and tables detailing dolphin anatomy, function, and morphology Facilitates education and training of students of all basic research and applied sciences dedicated to marine biology and the medical care of marine mammals Brings together the current knowledge and information on this topic, including those in obscure past or non-English publications, or scattered in short chapters in volumes Covers a number of delphinid species and serves as a useful complement for expanding trends in molecular biology and genetics

An Atlas of the Anatomy of Dolphins and Whales is a detailed, fully illustrated atlas on the anatomy and morphology of dolphins. The book provides basic knowledge on anatomical structures, in particular, soft tissues, and functions as a standalone reference work for dissecting rooms and labs, and for those sampling stranded and by-caught dolphins in the field. As a supplement to Anatomy of Dolphins: Insights into Body Structure and Function, this atlas will be of great interest to the scientific community, including veterinarians and biologists. With a modern approach to dolphin anatomy and morphology, this atlas provides the extensive knowledge necessary to practitioners. The conceptual clarity, precision, and comprehensive and updated display of the topographical anatomy of the dolphin's body in the atlas supports and illustrates the authors' related work, serving as a comprehensive reference for those who are more specifically interested in the details of dolphin anatomy and morphology. Functions as a helpful method for demonstrating the animal's anatomy prior to dissection, and for teaching anatomy Provides a unique and authoritative resource that explicitly relates the gross and microscopic anatomy of dolphin organs and tissues Offers a single reference source and useful teaching tool for visualizing the integrated dolphin body and its components

This book presents a review of recent advances in cell biology, biochemistry and functional genomics of the dolphin using biological fluids, tissues or cell lines in an effort to further our understanding of dolphins and their responses to a changing environment. Dolphins can produce a wide repertoire of sounds: impulsive (high frequency) sounds, also involved in echolocation mechanism, percussive sounds and modulated sounds, usually called whistles. The authors of this book examine the function of modulated signals, through a bibliographic review and data analysis, with special attention to the function of the signature whistle in the mother-calf relationship. Furthermore, this book provides an overview of the traditional uses and commercialisation of dolphin's products in Brazil and discusses their implications for conservation. Other chapters examine the histology of different sections of the melon and other pathways for reception of water-borne sounds (the jaw) and important aspects of one of the most serious viral agents for cetaceans, the cetacean morbillivirus (CeMV), including its host range, geographical distribution and mortality rate of the reported outbreaks.

Because of their exposure in marine parks, movies, and television as well as their presence in tropical and warm-temperature waters around the world, bottlenose dolphins are among the most familiar of marine mammals. Since they are relatively easy to obtain and they thrive in captivity, these dolphins have been used in a great variety of studies. Work with the bottlenose has provided insight into the sensory mechanisms, communication systems, energetics, reproduction, anatomy, and other aspects of cetacean biology. This volume presents the most recent biological and behavioral discoveries of bottlenose dolphins from different regions and compares bottlenose dolphins as a group with other species of animals.

Although anatomical investigations of dolphins have been conducted for hundreds of years, it is only relatively recently that detailed physiological experiments have been possible. The twenty-one essays in this collection, written by scientists, veterinarians, and curators with extensive experience with dolphins, provide an in-depth review of the most recent research on both captive and free-living dolphins. The contributors consider the anatomy and physiology of the dolphin, dolphin brain size and cortical organization, dolphin maintenance in captivity, diet, acoustic faculty, and the causes of occasional mass stranding. This volume contains information essential to researchers involved in raising dolphins in captivity as well as to anyone interested in dolphin conservation.

Although bats and dolphins live in very different environments, are vastly different in size, and hunt different kinds of prey, both groups have evolved similar sonar systems, known as echolocation, to locate food and navigate the skies and seas. While much research has been conducted over the past thirty years on echolocation in bats and dolphins, this volume is the first to compare what is known about echolocation in each group, to point out what information is missing, and to identify future areas of research. Echolocation in Bats and Dolphins consists of six sections: mechanisms of echolocation signal production; the anatomy and physiology of signal reception and interpretation; performance and cognition; ecological and evolutionary aspects of echolocation mammals; theoretical and methodological topics; and possible echolocation capabilities in other mammals, including shrews, seals, and baleen whales. Animal behaviorists, ecologists, physiologists, and both scientists and engineers who work in the field of bioacoustics will benefit from this book.
