This book describes the methods and procedures for field studies of the population ecology of seals in order to gather basic scientific information and to assist in conservation efforts. The papers in this book make specific recommendations for estimating population sizes, for studying their behavior on land and at sea, and for immobilizing, capturing, marking, and, where necessary, humanely killing seals in order to study physiology, diet, bioenergetics, and make age determinations.
