) means "seal." Seals almost always appear on Phocaean coins.
In this respect, the endemic behavior and the progressively expanding host range of DMV in the western Mediterranean Sea are a matter of concern (2,3,8), as exemplified by a peculiar case of infection in a captive harbor seal (Phoca
vitulina), a species with a mixed marine-terrestrial ecology (9).
Seasonal variation in the diet of harp seals (Phoca
groenlandica) from the Gulf of St.
Recently, conjoined twins were reported in bats (Artibeus phaeotis, Urban et al, 2015; genus Artibeus, Nogueira et al., 2017) and harbor seals (Phoca
vitulina, Olson et al., 2016).
Such studies of Pacific Harbor Seal (Phoca
vitulina richardii) foraging behaviors and dietary composition within the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME) have been conducted for several decades.
Abstract--Tidewater glacial fjords provide important habitat for breeding harbor seals (Phoca
vitulina) that rest, give birth, and nurse pups on icebergs.
Preparation and Characterization of Gelatine from The Skin of Harp Seal (Phoca
We were taking advantage of the harbor seal (Phoca
vitulina) pupping season and the pup mortality inherent therein.
Nasal mites (Acari: Halarachnidae) in the spotted seal, Phoca
largha Pallas, and other pinnipeds of Alaskan waters.
Remote monitoring has been used by the Alaska SeaLife Center for over a decade to monitor behavior, site fidelity, and pupping of endangered Steller sea lions, Eumetopias jubatus, at the Chiswell Islands (Maniscalco et al., 2002, Parker et al., 2008, Maniscalco et al., 2010) and abundance and behavior of harbor seals, Phoca
vitulina, in Aialik Bay (Hoover-Miller et al., 2011).
A unique feature of the freshwater ecosystem of Lake Baikal is the presence of endemic Baikal seal--the seal (Pusa (Phoca
) sibirica Gmel.), the only mammal and therefore a higher level of the food chain.
