Abstract

Anatomical and physiological studies of southern elephant seals (Miroullga leonina), particularly in the
post-natal period, raise questions of relative musculature growth, control of metabolism, circulation and temperature
regulation, which could be important in our understanding of these processes in mammals and of their contribution to
adaptation to environmental extremes.
