Bruno Cozzi, Stefan Huggenberger & Helmut H.A. Oelschläger, 2016:  
Anatomy of Dolphins: Insights into Body Structure and Function. ISBN  
9780124072299, eBook ISBN 9780124076556, 456 pages. Academic  
Press/Elsevier, San Diego.

This book is the most comprehensive work on the anatomy of dolphins,  
featuring the latest expertise on macroscopic anatomy, histology,  
embryology, functional morphology, and evolutionary biology covering a  
number of delphinid species and serving as a useful complement for  
expanding trends in molecular biology and genetics

   Key Features
- 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

   Description
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.

   Readership
Marine biologists; naturalists; veterinarians; PhD students;  
bio-acousticians; comparative neuroscientists
