Dear Colleagues,
   Some of you knew Jake Houck, who was a professor at Humboldt State 
University.   Jake passed away last summer and I offered to help his daughter get 
his extensive collection of marine mammal books into the hands of people 
who could use them.   Many of these are older, rare items.   We are making the 
books and reprints available to colleagues at reasonable prices.   All 
money raised will go to ¡VivaVaquita!, a non-profit organization to assist 
research and conservation efforts for the vaquita (Phocoena sinus), the World’s 
most endangered marine mammal species.   Payments must be made in US dollars. 
  Contact me <sclymene at aol.com> for complete list of 
books/monographs/reprints available.
