Behaviour on the Hawaiian Breeding Grounds
Jim Darling

Humpback whale watchers in Hawaii and whale lovers everywhere will find this an easy guide to the latest research findings. An absorbing account of whale behaviour and how researchers try to document and understand it, this book is based on Dr. Jim Darling’s professional summary of recent research. He distinguishes speculation from fact and provides links to the original research articles. Research methods and technology are explained, showing how humans are unravelling these creatures’ deep mysteries. Graced with extraordinary photographs and illustrations, the book traces the history of whale research from its beginnings through the present to a look into the future, setting signs of humpback survival against the possible restart of whaling.
