Date: 1978-03
Publisher: Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology (formerly Hawai'i Marine Laboratory)
Citation: Balazs GH, Whittow GC. 1978. Bibliography of the Hawaiian monk seal, Monachus schauinslandi Matschie 1905. Honolulu (HI): Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology, University of Hawai‘i. Report No.: 35.
Abstract: There is considerable interest in the Hawaiian monk seal at present due to its restricted range and recent designation as an "endangered species" under provisions of the U. S. Endangered Species Act of 1973. The following comprehensive list of references has therefore been assembled for the benefit of anyone seeking information on this rare, endemic marine mammal. All material known to us as of February 10, 1978, which deals either exclusively or in part with Monachus schauinslandi, has been included. A special feature of the bibliography is the incorporation of references to articles from the Honolulu newspapers and to unpublished reports, which we were in a strategic position to locate.
