This application is an adapted mobile version of the CD-ROM 'Marine Mammals of the World', published by ETI BioInformatics (ISBN 90-75000-81-2), which in its turn is based on the field guide by the same name, published as an FAO species identification guide by Thomas A. Jefferson, Stephen Leatherwood and Marc A. Webber in 1993 as part of a worldwide programme for the identification of marine mammals and also cetaceans, seals and sirenians found in freshwater. The 121 species include a variety of taxa: baleen whales, toothed whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions, sirenians, marine otters and the polar bear.

In addition to this e-fauna, other e-guides covering plants, butterflies, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians are available or in preparation. Please check for a list of available titles.
