Behavior and Ecology of the Northern Fur Seal
Edition: First printing
Priceton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1997. Blue cloth. pp (xvi), 392. Charts, index. Fine in fine jacket. "Covering the behavior and ecology of the northern fur seal, this book is a model long-term study of marine mammals, one that tests theory through both observation of undisturbed behavior and manipulative experiments on individuals. Here Roger Gentry draws on nearly two decades of research on three different islands to show how behavior among these seals changes with population size, sex ratio, and environment, to explain the behavior of the population beginning with individuals, and to generalize the results to other members of the eared seal family. In so doing, he offers one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind on any marine mammal species to date."
