Summary

Summary

They're at the center of the controversy about how to balance ecology and the economy. Desired for their fur, the bane of fishermen, and appealing enough to evoke in sometimes sentimental response in humans, fur seals, sea lions, walruses, and phocid seals comprise a fascinating and unusual group. Special attention focuses on their highly unusual anatomy, with limbs adapted fully to their aquatic environments.
