The Atlantic Walrus

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 four thousand years. 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, the thirteen chapters 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. The book also examines historic and ongoing management strategies, the importance of new research methodologies in revealing hitherto unknown details of the past, and concludes by discussing the future for Atlantic walruses in face of climate change and increased human activities in the Arctic. This volume is an ideal resource for those 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. Consolidates research scattered across fields and academic publications by providing succinct overviews of the biology of Atlantic walrus, as well as human cultures within the North Atlantic Arctic and the surrounding region 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 (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus) Considers the inter-relatedness and complexity of species biology, ecological change, human culture, and anthropogenic pressures of walrus 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 versus implemented and future efforts for conservation due to human interference and climate change Text supported by striking and insightful new maps and scientific illustrations, ideal for teaching and outreach

"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

"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

"Summarizes available information on distribution, numbers and exploitation of Atlantic walruses (Odobenus rosmarus rosmarus L.) for an assessment of their present status. The effects on walruses of various human activities other than hunting (e.g. disturbance, pollution, fishery interactions) are also evaluated."--Page 6.
