Mammals (from Latin mamma "breast") are vertebrate animals constituting the class Mammalia (/ m ə ˈ m eɪ l i ə /), and characterized by the presence of mammary glands which in females (and sometimes males) produce milk for feeding (nursing) their young, a neocortex (a region of the brain), fur or hair, and three middle ear characteristics distinguish them from reptiles and. Assessing the non-lethal effects of disturbance and their population-level consequences is a significant ecological and conservation challenge, because it requires extensive baseline knowledge of behavioral patterns, life-history and demography. However, for many marine mammal populations, this knowledge is currently lacking and it may take decades to fill the gaps.

Some species do undergo long seasonal migrations, mainly north-south movements between breeding and foraging grounds. "This book represents an authoritative and up to date account of our understanding of the biology of marine mammals.

Estimating age for most marine mammals is conducted primarily from growth layers in teeth, although ear plugs are used for some large whales and ear bones are used for. Deep diving marine mammals were species of concern, but very little definitive information was known. In a comprehensive book on the relation between marine mammals and noise had been published, and it did not even mention strandings.

Inresearch showed beaked whales were highly sensitive to mid-frequency active sonar. Behavioural ecology is an evolutionary-based discipline that attempts to predict how animals will behave in a given set of environmental circumstances and how those behavioural decisions will impact population growth and community structure.
