The Northern Elephant Seal.


    A VALUABLE paper on the northern elephant seal (Macrorhinus, angustirostris, Gill), by Mr. Charles H. Townsend, director of the New York Aquarium, has been published in “Zoologica” —scientific contributions of the New York Zoological Society—vol. L, No. 8. The paper is No. 2 of the scientific results of the expedition to the Gulf of California, in charge of Mr. Townsend, by the U.S. Fisheries steamship Albatross in 1911. It consists of fourteen pages, accompanied by twenty-one illustrations, and relates to a species concerning which there has been comparatively little information obtained during the past forty years.
