Guide to marine mammals of the world by National Audubon Society( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers 120 species of whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, and sea lions. Information about each species covers every aspect of the animal's anatomy, life cycle, and behavior. The guide delineates evolution, worldwide population, migratory routes, and habitats, and describes feeding habits, vocalizations, social organization, surface behavior, and threats to and chances for survival. The text for each animal is accompanied by up to three richly detailed full-color paintings by marine artist Pieter Folkens, full-color photographs illustrating typical behavior, and a map indicating the species' range and migration. Additional maps give water temperatures, ocean currents, and ocean floor geography. "Watching" guidelines include identification techniques, where and when to go, and how to deal with a stranded animal

Dispersion and foraging ranges of Hawaiian monk seals (Monachus schauinslandi) near Lisianski and Midway Islands, 2000-2001 by Brent S Stewart( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"We studied the movements of 26 Hawaiian monk seals (8 weaned pups [4 male, 4 female], 9 juveniles [7 male, 2 female], 9 adults [4 male, 5 female]) near Lisianski Island and 16 seals (4 weaned pups [2 male, 2 female], 8 juveniles [5 male, 3 female], 4 adults [2 male, 2 female]) near the Midway Islands between October 2000 and September 2001 using satellitelinked radio telemetry, for between 2 and 261 days. Seals ranged over relatively great distances while foraging from autumn through summer. Weaned pups and juveniles from Lisianski Island ranged over much larger distances to forage (up to 400 km) than seals from the Midway Islands (generally <100km). Adults from both colonies traveled from 100 to 300 km to forage, and those from the Midway Islands dispersed more and traveled greater distances than those from Lisianski. When moving away from each colony, seals generally traveled southwest to forage; exceptions were some adults and juveniles that also ranged northwest to Kure Atoll from the Midway Islands. No seals from the Midway Islands reached Lisianki Island and none from Lisianski moved towards the Midway Islands. In addition to habitats very near atolls and islands, key foraging areas were also at seamounts along the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands ridge. Seals appeared to move quickly along corridors between these submarine features and evidently did not spend much time foraging during transit"--Abstract

Report on validation and calibration of fatty acid signatures in blubber as indicators of prey in Hawaiian monk seal diet : a report submitted under contract No. AB133F-03-SE-1195 September 2003 by Sara J Iverson( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fatty acid signature analysis is widely use in the study of marine mammal diets and trophic ecology. Several recent peer-reviewed articles and reference books on the subject cite an unpublished study carried out by scientists at Dalhousie University and Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute under Contract No. AB 133F-03-SE-1195 with the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center. A report of the study was prepared under the contract and submitted to PIFSC in September 2003. The report describe s experiments in 2001 using captive Hawaiian monk seals to validate and calibrate fatty acid signatures for use in ascertaining the feeding habits of this endangered species"--Preface

"The Hawaiian monk seal (Monachus schauinslandi) is endemic to the Hawaiian Island Archipelago with six principal colonies in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (NWHI) and reefs of the archipelago. The species was designated as Endangered in 1976 under the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA) following declines of 50% from the late 1950s. Overall, numbers declined about 11% annually from 1989 through the mid-1990s, owing to low birth rates and poor survival of neonates and juveniles from a variety of known and unknown causes (e.g., Gilmartin and Eberhardt, 1995; Antonelis and Ragen, 1997; Craig and Ragen, 1999). The Hawaiian monk seal metapopulation now numbers 1,300 to 1,400 with colonies at six isolated sites in the NWHI and small but increasing numbers at the main Hawaiian Islands (Ragen and Lavigne, 1999; Baker and Johanos, 2004). Here we report the results of studies conducted at Laysan Island 1 (25°46'N, 171°44'W; Figures 1, 2), the second largest colony at 250-300 seals, from October 2001 through September 2002 to define the general geographic and vertical marine habitats used by seals when foraging"--Introduction
