E. robustus:  The biology and human history of  gray whales The transformation of our view of gray whales over the past century from devilfish to gentle giants has been nothing short of remarkable. Whether you are a casual whale watcher or an avid observer of these animals, there is something in this book for you. Extensively illustrated with over 140 color photographs, maps and line drawings, this book makes information on the biology and human history of gray whales accessible to those unfamiliar with the published scientific literature on the species. Topics range from basic anatomy and migratory behavior of gray whales to the latest research on the genetics of western gray whales, early whaling activities, gray whales in captivity and the growth of modern whale-watching activities.
