Professor Kenneth S. Norris was perhaps the greatest naturalist and marine mammal biologist this country has ever known.

The available lectures were presented during his course, "Biology of Marine Mammals," most of them in 1981. This is vintage Ken Norris. The lectures are unedited and include his jokes, timeless stories and anecdotes, and views on marine mammal issues and biology. It is a treasure-trove for students and for anyone who teaches a course on marine mammal biology.
