"...clearly written for seal scientists, but a scholar interested in seals or seal research will find the book informative." T.L. Hufford, Choice "...a handbook of methods and techniques to be used as a guide in the study of antarctic seals..this comprehensive volume will serve as a valuable reference not only for those studying seals in the Antarctic, but also worldwide...I found the volume very well edited...the line drawings, figures, and tables were clear and informative... I like this book, not only because it brings together a wide range of topics and contains a wealth of information relating to the methods and techniques involved in seal research, but also because it identifies research needs and areas where technology needs to be developed. The SCAR Group of Specialists on Seals, Dr. Laws, and all the authors should share a sense of great satisfaction in the production of this volume. It will be of primary interest to all those who study seals whether they are professional biologists or students." Marine Mammal Science
