A quick Google search has yielded three good web sites (see below)
to answer your question. In addition, you might check your school or local
National Audubon Society Field Guide to Marine Mammals of the World
by Pieter A. Folkens (Illustrator), Randall R. Reeves (Editor)
Photographs, drawings and paintings combine with maps, charts and essays to
provide not only data but also insight into the behavior of these highly
evolved and specialized animals. The introduction provides a general guide
to marine mammals: their habitat, behavior, reproduction, diet and
conservation status. The individual articles are packed with facts about
each species and the best ways to find and identify them in the wild. The
articles also describe ways of identifying similar species whose ranges
overlap. Among this guide's best features are the appendixes, which break
down the species by region and offer a chart of species morphology and an
illustrated glossary. This book is ideal for students and amateur animal
watchers. Color illus. and paintings, maps.
the Sierra Club Handbook of Whales and Dolphins
by Stephen Leatherwood, Randall Reeves, Larry Foster (Illustrator)
Included is a map of the world that divides the oceans into 8 zones for
convenience in discussing geographic ranges of the animals covered in the
The book includes overview material on the ecology and natural history of
whales and dolphins. It also has a section dedicated to each individual
species. Each species section includes an extremely nice painting of the
animal, BW photographs, a narative description, and information on the
animal's range, behavior, natural history, and conservation status. Overall
an excellent handbook on the cetacea.
I hope this helps.
