Whalewatcher Journal Killer Whale Issue

Dear Marmam subscribers,

The American Cetacean Society is proud to announce the full-color  
special killer whale issue of our ACS Whalewatcher journal (2011,  
Volume 40, No. 1). This issue is completely dedicated to killer  
whales. It is a thorough summary of the history of modern killer whale  
research, descriptions of the most significant findings unearthed  
along the way, and recent updates on what is currently known about  
killer whales. Richly illustrated with some never-before published  
photos, this issue also introduces two new common names for killer  
whale ecotypes for the first time.

All of us at ACS are extremely grateful for Robert Pitman, who  
graciously accepted our invitation to serve as our guest editor. We  
also like to thank all authors, photographers, and illustrators who  
have contributed to this magnificent publication.
