9780813035635: The Florida Manatee: Biology and Conservation

"A must-read for anyone with an interest in the conservation of this important species."--Jim Valade, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Manatee Recovery Activities

"Reep and Bonde, each with more than 20 years of experience researching the manatee, have produced an introduction to these secretive animals for the general reader. Covering all aspects of manatee biology, they delve into both the scientific literature and the anecdotes of fellow manatee researchers to create an entertaining and comprehensive primer on manatee biology. ?. . . Highly recommended."--Booklist

Much of what we know about manatee biology and behavior has been learned in the years after they were first declared an endangered species in 1967. Roger Reep and Robert Bonde have been at the forefront of manatee research for more than two decades. The Florida Manatee offers an engaging, accessible introduction to everything manatee, including communication, diet, long-distance migration, and much more.


Publication of the hardcover edition birthed a slew of national newspaper stories on manatee intelligence appearing in publications ranging from the New York Times to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as well as dailies throughout Florida. The Florida Manatee is perfect for anyone seeking the most comprehensive, up-to-date information on this fascinating marine mammal.

Book Description:

The most complete single volume on manatee biology and conservation available. “With a depth that comes from decades of working on manatee research in both the field and laboratory, Roger Reep and Bob Bonde lead readers on a journey into the world of this unique and endangered marine mammal. This journey reveals new discoveries about manatee brains and behavior, delves into current controversies surrounding manatee conservation, and is told from the perspectives of the authors’ personal experiences and the individuals who have made a difference in the field.”--Charles Deutsch, Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute “A must-read for anyone with an interest in the conservation of this important species.”--Jim Valade, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services Manatee Recovery Activities In the field of marine biology, there is a uniqueness to manatee research, and in this book, Roger Reep and Robert Bonde make clear both its rewards and challenges. Veteran researchers with 45 years’ experience between them, they have created an instantly engaging, accessible tale of this mysterious creature for professionals and interested lay people alike.            Having played integral roles in many of the research efforts discussed in the book,Reep and Bonde humanize the sometimes difficult-to-grasp characteristics of manatee biology, their relation to the environment, and the biopolitics that result from the intersection of science and wildlife management. They weave fact with real-life scenarios to explain what science has learned about this unusual animal—from microorganisms that cause manatee die-offs during red tide blooms to the complexity of long-distance migrations to the curiosities of manatee physiology. The evolutionary basis of the sirenian language (how manatees communicate with each other) is also revealed.            Technological innovations and conservation efforts since the landmark protection legislation of the early 1970s are also central to the manatee story. Captive rehabilitation, radio tracking, and advanced boating regulations are discussed as methods to ensure manatee survival. Reep and Bonde argue that increasing interaction between man and manatee, most notably through the shared use of waterways, makes ongoing scientific research essential if successful coexistence is to be possible.
