About this book

Elephant seals, the largest seal species, are renowned for their spectacular recovery from near extinction at the hands of seal hunters at the end of the last century. They also exhibit remarkable tolerance of physiological extremes. This monograph discusses current knowledge of the species, including history and status of populations, and diving behaviour. The lessons and implications of the complete recovery of elephant seal populations are also dealt with.
