This chapter presents a retrospective view of what the other chapters have discussed—how the question of whales and whaling has been addressed to this point, how it might be approached in the future, and how the various issues surrounding whales and ocean ecosystems compare with other problems in applied ecology and conservation biology. It extrapolates from the scant information available on the ecological role of whales to explore what might be the broader consequences should whales recover to their historic abundance.

Keywords:   ocean ecosystems, conservation biology, applied ecology, whale ecosystem
