About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Princeton Legacy Library. Originally published in 1986.

The contributors to Fur Seals 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.
