Fur Seals
Maternal Strategies on Land and at Sea
Edited by Roger L. Gentry & Gerald L. Kooyman


The contributors to this volume have accomplished a breakthrough in our ability to collect data on ocean-dwelling mammals. In the first large-scale comparison of fur seals, they have employed quantitative methods and a special instrument called a Time-Depth-Recorder to study the strategies used by females in six species of cared seals to rear and wean their young in different environments.
