Species Information

Species List
The Committee on Taxonomy produced the first official Society for Marine Mammalogy list of marine mammal species and subspecies in 2010 and updates it annually. This list includes living and recently extinct species and subspecies.  It is meant to reflect prevailing usage and recent revisions published in the peer-reviewed literature. View the list.
Species Fact Sheets
Information about every recognized marine mammal species. The Society’s Education committee works hard to facilitate volunteer efforts to keep Wikipedia species fact sheets accurate and up to date on all marine mammals and the Wikipedia information gets pulled into these fact sheets. Combined with species illustrations by Uko Gorter and distribution maps pulled from the IUCN Red List, this is the best resource for marine mammal information out there.
Book: Marine Mammals of the World. Systematics and Distribution
This is the standard for taxonomic usage in Marine Mammal Science and a must for every serious marine mammal scientist’s library shelf or PDF collection. Purchase or download the book.
