Among whales by Roger Payne( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,194 libraries worldwide
"Among Whales presents the state of our most advanced knowledge about whales, but in doing so also embraces a rich variety of subjects and disciplines. It is a work of biology - cetacean, marine, and human; of exploration of sociology, of cultural mythology, of philosophy, and most certainly, of literature. As Payne takes us on a journey from the home territory we thought we knew and across the spectrum of life forms, we realize we are also on a journey of the heart, of discovery about the larger questions of life on earth." "Among Whales addresses a broad scope of important and penetrating questions: How will the evolving composition of seawater affect life on earth? What is the device by which whales sing, and why do they do it? How can we know that whales use rhyme if we don't understand their language? For what purposes do dolphins use their unparalleled large and complex brains? What is the purpose of the human brain? What is the nature of wilderness? How and why do creatures come together in peace? Among Whales is unique in its scholarly integrity and breadth of vision, biologically absorbing and humanly rich."--Jacket

Finite oceans ( visu )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
Dr. Roger Payne presents a view of oceans as finite bodies of water--a view diametrically opposed to preconceptions about the "limitless" seas into which we discard vast quantities of toxic, industrial wastes (immortal synthetic poisons). Learn how small concentrations of pollutants such as DDT, PCBs and pesticides threaten ecosystems at all levels. While it's early to see the effects of chemicals we produce on the oceans, we can clearly see their effects on the large bodies of fresh water such as the Great Lakes. The effects of chemical pollution of water is shown as a warning about problems that threaten not only wildlife but human lives as well
