This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1868 edition. Excerpt: ... of the winter, and even of the summer: the migration of the Seals is too complicated a subject to be discussed in a general review; under my notes on each species I shall have occasion to recur to it. In like manner all the Cetacea leave the seas in the winter, with the exception of Monodon monoceros and Beluya catodon, which can be seen at open places in the ice all the winter through. Why these species should be winter denizens in preference to the others it is difficult to decide. Several species have what may be called a local miyration, moving from one portion of the coast to another, north and south, during the summer, according to the state of the ice, &c, --all of which will be noticed in another place. (y) The species indigenous all the year round are therefore the terrestrial Mammals and the remainder of the marine species not already mentioned as migratory, viz. Ursus maritimus, Canis familiaris, var. borealis, Vulpes layopus, Lepus ylacialis, Myodes torquatus, (?) Ovibos moschalus, Ranyifer tarandus, Trichechus rosmarus, Callocephalus vitulinus, Payomys fcetidus, Monodon monoceros, and Beluya catodon.
