The Atlantic Walrus Book Review:

The Atlantic Walrus: Multidisciplinary insights into human-animal interactions addresses the key dimensions of long-term human walrus interactions across the Atlantic Arctic and subarctic regions, over the past millennia. This book brings together research from across the social and natural sciences to explore walrus biology, human culture, environmental conditions and their reciprocal effects. Together, 13 chapters of this book reconstruct the early evolution of walruses, walrus biology, the cultural significance and ecological impact of prehistoric and indigenous hunting practices, as well as the effects of commercial hunting and international trade. This book also examines historic and ongoing management strategies and, the importance of new research methodologies in revealing hitherto unknown details of the past, and concludes by discussing the future for Atlantic walruses in the face of climate change and increased human activities in the Arctic. This volume is an ideal resource for those who are seeking to understand an iconic Arctic species and its long and complex relationship with humans. This includes individuals and researchers with a personal or professional connection to walruses or the Arctic, as well as marine biologists, zoologists, conservationists, paleontologists, archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, indigenous communities, natural resource managers and government agencies. Provides succinct overviews of the biology of the Atlantic Walrus (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) as well as human cultures within the North Atlantic Arctic and the surrounding region by consolidating research which until now has been scattered across fields and academic publications Editorial team of inter-disciplinary researchers ensuring the breadth, depth and integration of material covered throughout the volume Thirteen chapters, each authored by leading international researchers and experts on the Atlantic Walrus Considers the inter-relatedness and complexity of species biology, ecological change, human culture, and anthropogenic pressures onto the Atlantic Walrus, all while remaining accessible to readers from different disciplines or a more generalist audience Draws upon the latest methods in marine mammal and archaeological research Assesses historical management of the species, while also considering current and future conservation efforts in light of human activities and climate change Text supported by striking and insightful new maps and scientific illustrations, ideal for teaching and outreach

The Atlantic Walrus Book Review:

The Atlantic Walrus: Biological, Historical, and Indigenous Insights into Species-Human Interactions addresses the key dimensions of walrus and human interactions across the North Atlantic and Arctic regions over the past 4,000 years. It establishes a new synthesis of historical ecology and biology, focusing on the effects of climate change on the species' population and the different phases of human impacts. Sections cover genetics and behavior, delving into evolution and purposes, and detail prehistoric, pristine walrus populations affected by Indigenous and Viking hunting and usage. The book emphasizes the importance of molecular advances and biological research and how to conserve remaining populations. This is an ideal resource for marine biologists and conservationists who require the most updated and accurate source of biological and historical information on the species. Paleoecologists will also find this useful for the evolution of the Atlantic walrus and how the species has needed to adapt to the environment and neighboring humans to survive. Edited and written by leading international researchers and experts on the Atlantic walrus (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) Features integrative case studies on the effects of human interaction, including hunting, cultural significance and habitat destruction Details the latest marine mammal research, including drone technology applications for tracking walrus populations Assesses historical management of the species vs. implemented and future efforts for conservation due to human interference and climate change

"Walrus are large gregarious pinnipeds with upper canine teeth that grow into long tusks and a moustache of quill-like vibrissae. Newborns are 120 cm long and 55 kg; males can grow to 315 cm and 1100 kg and females to 277 cm and 800 kg. The Atlantic Walrus, Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus (Linnaeus, 1758) is one of two extant subspecies, the other being the Pacific Walrus (O. r. divergens). Atlantic Walrus traditionally provided important staples in the subsistence economy of the eastern Canadian Arctic and Greenland. The hunts are still of great social and cultural significance, and the economic value of the meat and ivory is substantial. The Walrus is important as the only living species in its family and a key link in the Arctic food web between bivalve molluscs and humans"--Wildlife Species Description and Significance, p. v.

The Biology of the Atlantic Walrus Odobenus Rosmarus Rosmarus Linnaeus in the Eastern Canadian Arctic Book Review:

"The walrus, Odobenus rosmarus, is a circumpolar species of arctic and sub-arctic waters and is geographically isolated into three or more morphologically distinct groups. The Eastern Canadian Arctic and West Greenland group ranged as far south as Sable Island and the Gulf of St. Lawrence in historic times, but unrestricted commercial exploitation led to a serious decline in numbers and a withdrawal of the group to the more northern and inaccessible parts of its range. The advent of the rifle into the Eskimo economy with consequent wasteful methods of hunting caused further serious reductions in the walrus herds and necessitated the introduction of restrictive hunting measures." --
