Nigel Bonner. Covers that fascinating group of animals whose evolution into their present forms & lifestyles seems almost contradictory. While seals, sea lions & walruses are mammals, their habitat is  an aquatic one, their limbs fully adapted for swimming rather than land locomotion. This book describes & illustrates the various families of the order Pinnipedia -- fur seals, sea lions, walruses & the phocid seals. Evolution, classification, distribution, life-cycles, zoology & their current status & future are all discussed, as well as the question of their relationship with humans. Examines controversial topics such as conflicts between seals & fishing & culling & the fur trade. 100 color photos, detailed diagrams & maps. Comprehensive!
