By Stephen Leatherwood, William E. Evans (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

Four years in the past we begun soliciting articles for this quantity from authors who have been engaged in entire study on whales. From the outset we made up our minds to not restrict the subject material to behaviour yet to additionally comprise usual background. a lot of what's recognized concerning the habit of whales arose from experiences whose primary target was once no longer habit, a lot because it did for different animal teams ahead of habit was once thought of a unique self-discipline. therefore in lots of of the articles habit is heavily intertwined with average background and in others is totally overshadowed through a uncomplicated traditional background method. Our target was once to have the articles include a evaluate of the literature and contain examine findings now not formerly released. For all intents and reasons this objective has been learned, albeit might be now not in as balanced a way when it comes to species or material as used to be initially deliberate. however, we think the articles current quite a lot of informative works with a myriad of techniques and methods represented. we're thankful to the individuals for his or her endurance and figuring out in expecting booklet, which has taken for much longer than we initially anticipated. we're additionally thankful tor the help of a couple of humans, in particular Julie Fischer and Lois Winn for his or her editorial efforts, and Jill Grover, Carol Samet, and Lois Winn for his or her assist in indexing.
