Seals, Sea Lions, and Walrus: Pinnipeds. Pinnipeds are carnivores that have adapted to an amphibious marine existence. They forage at sea but most come ashore or onto ice at some time of the year to mate, give birth, suckle their young, or to molt. This book is a succinct yet comprehensive text devoted to the systematics, evolution, morphology, ecology, physiology, and behavior of marine mammals. The first edition, considered the leading text in the field, is required reading for all marine biologists concerned with marine : Annalisa Berta.
The Encyclopedia of Marine Mammals, Third Edition covers the ecology, behavior, conservation, evolution, form and function of whales, dolphins, seals, sea lions, manatees, dugongs, otters and polar edition provides new content on anthropogenic concerns, latest information on emerging threats such as ocean noise, and impacts of climate : Elsevier Science. Tropical Pinnipeds reviews and updates current research on the biology, marine ecology, bio-monitoring, and conservation of tropical pinniped populations, including their behavior, anthropogenic stressors, and health. It also looks at challenges to be faced for the conservation of tropical pinnipeds, many of which are threatened species.

Pinnipeds, commonly known as seals, are a widely distributed and behavior and physiology of pinnipeds book clade of carnivorous, fin-footed, semiaquatic marine comprise the extant families Odobenidae (whose only living member is the walrus), Otariidae (the eared seals: sea lions and fur seals), and Phocidae (the earless seals, or true seals).
There are 33 extant species of pinnipeds, and more than 50 extinct Class: Mammalia. Lactation represents a major proportion of maternal reproductive effort.
In ungulates the energetic costs of lactation comprise 75–80% of the total energetic costs of reproduction (Oftedal, ). Although pinnipeds feed at sea, they return to land or ice to give birth Cited by: The bindings were not crisp as new book bindings should be - looked as if they had sat on a shelf and been handled for quite a bit.
The last book arrived a week late, which was understandable due to the countries extreme weather. The book however is obviously used. It has an inscription inside the front cover, along with the date of Cited by: This chapter looks at the interplay between anatomy, physiology, environment and behaviour in producing the social and individual behaviours observed in a broad range of pinnipeds.
Because pinniped behaviour and environmental parameters are more easily observed than physiological mechanisms are delineated, the contribution of physiology must Cited by: book leads me to doubt that this function is served herein.
The first chapter on social behavior by the late R. Peterson sets an excellent standard, and attests to his skill as a theoretician, observer, and writer. Data are presented in a lucid and concise manner. He concludes with.
and diving physiology, (3) sensory physiology, (4) osmoregulation, (5) thermoregulation, (6) fasting physiology, and (7) lactation physiology. Pinnipeds have had to overcome numerous problems. Discusses the adaptation, evolution, classification, distribution, ecology, behavior, communication, and learning of seals, sea lions and walruses.

Since the behavior of sound and light in water is markedly different than that in air, this again requires plasticity in their sensory physiology. Marine Mammals: Evolutionary Biology, Third Edition is a succinct, yet comprehensive text devoted to the systematics, evolution, morphology, ecology, physiology, and behavior of marine mammals.
Get this from a library. The Behaviour of Pinnipeds. [Deane Renouf] -- We teach our students of behavioural science that one first defines a research problem, and then the most appropriate animal is selected to investigate hypotheses.
The reverse order of events is. Physiology & Behavior is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by is an official journal of the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society.
The journal covers the fields of behavioral neuroendocrinology, psychoneuroimmunology, learning and memory, ingestion, social behavior, and studies related to the mechanisms of line: Behavioral neuroscience, physiology.
Elephant seals, weighing up to kilograms, are not only the largest seals but among the most impressive of all marine mammals. Brought to the brink of extinction by nineteenth-century hunters, the northern species has achieved a recovery that is unmatched by any other marine vertebrate.
Elephant seals are capable of tolerating remarkable physiological extremes of nutrition, temperature.

Marine Mammal Physiology: Requisites for Ocean Living is the first textbook focused on how marine mammals live in the sea from a physiological point of view.
It explores the essential aspects of what makes a marine mammal different from terrestrial mammals, beyond just their environment. Foraging Physiology Evaluating The Effects of Varying Prey Capture Rates In from to we partnered with Alaska Pacific University graduate student, Tori Norrell and her mentor Leslie Cornick to quantify how the foraging behavior of California sea lions (Zalophus californianus) relates to their metabolic rates and their behavior.
The harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) is the most widely occurring phocid seal in the the United States, it is found on both the east and west coasts. Their size varies fairly widely across their distribution with the smallest animals weighing around kg (N.
Gulf of Alaska) and the largest animals weighing up to about kg (Aleutian Islands).Pinniped, (suborder Pinnipedia), any of a group of 34 species of aquatic fin-footed mammals comprising seals, sea lions, and the walrus.
Pinnipeds live only in rich marine environments and a few inland or tropical freshwater systems. Shaped like torpedoes, pinnipeds have wide torsos and narrower.The oldest definitive pinniped fossils date from approximately –23 million years ago (Ma) in the North Pacific.
Pinniped monophyly is consistently supported; the group shares a common ancestry with arctoid carnivorans, either ursids or musteloids. Crown pinnipeds comprise the Otariidae (fur seals and sea lions), Odobenidae (walruses), and Phocidae (seals), with paraphyletic Cited by:
