Newly published from the University Press of Florida, April 2006: 

THE FLORIDA MANATEE BIOLOGY AND CONSERVATION
by Roger L. Reep and Robert K. Bonde

Roger Reep and Robert Bonde, veteran researchers with 45 years of
experience between them, have created an engaging, accessible account of
the Florida manatee for professionals and interested lay people alike.

Included are chapters on the manatee lifestyle, evolution, endangered
status and recovery plans, population studies, tracking studies, brain
organization, perception and behavior, and rehabilitation and release.

Reep and Bonde personalize their account by weaving together scientific
findings with amusing anecdotes and sketches of some of the characters
involved with Florida manatees.  

Available from Amazon.com for $22.02
