  • Why are vocalizations important for male northern elephant seals?
  • How have vocalizations changed over time as the northern elephant seal population increased?
  • Do vocalizations play a role in mediating male-male competition in northern elephant seals?
  • How are vocalizations recorded and analyzed?
  • What other factors influence the development of social behavior in juvenile or sub-adult males?

We want your questions! Submit your questions in advance HERE.
