Dolphins. LC Science Tracer Bullet.
Niskern, Diana, Comp.
The family Delphinidae is the largest family of toothed whales. It includes not only those mammals commonly referred to as dolphins, such as the bottlenosed dolphin often seen in captivity, but also the killer whale. This literature and resources guide is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography on dolphins; the guide is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader or student "on target." Sections of this bibliography include: (1) introductions to the topic; (2) subject headings used by the Library of Congress, under which books on dolphins can be located in most card, book, and online catalogs; (3) general texts; (4) specialized titles; (5) personal accounts of experiences with dolphins; (6) handbooks; (7) bibliographies; (8) state-of-the-art reviews and conference proceedings; (9) government publications; (10) abstracting and indexing services that index relevant journal articles and other literature on dolphins; (11) journals that often contain relevant articles; (12) representative journal articles; (13) reports and other types of literature; (14) selected technical reports; (15) selected materials available in the Science Reading Room pamphlet boxes; and (16) additional sources of information.
