About the book

Marine mammals are, in short, catalytic species. Thus, knowledge of areas that are important for them will facilitate the balancing of human uses of the sea with the imperative of conserving marine biodiversity. The ecological roles of marine mammals, there is evidence that the abundance and distribution of marine mammals can have important effects on the structure and function of some ecosystems.

The main purpose of the book is to point out the interest of marine mammals and their role in marine ecosystems and their major influence on the structure and function of marine communities.

The book will also include Species, Distribution, and migration, Anatomy, Physiology Nutrition, Reproduction, Behavior, Diseases, Therapy, Management, How to Restraint and train a marine mammal. The book is intended for veterinarians and clinicians and people directly involved in marine and aquarium animal’s health and management. It would also be of value to post and undergraduate veterinary students.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
