Insights from 180 years of mitochondrial variability in the endangered Mediterranean monk seal ( Monachus monachus )
TLDR
Although two new, rare CR1 haplotypes were detected, genetic diversity remained extremely low and fully resolved haplotype median network and rarefaction was found.
The Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus: status, biology, threats, and conservation priorities
The Mediterranean monk seal Monachus monachus is the most endangered seal species. In this review we summarize the status, ecology, and behaviour of the Mediterranean monk seal, and identify the main
Prehistoric and historic distributions of the critically endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) in the eastern Atlantic
TLDR
It is proposed that the species' prehistoric range extended from the continental coasts of North Africa to the Iberian Peninsula, an area larger than its current known range, and the use of sea caves explains the present-day survival of these Atlantic colonies of M. monachus.

Results showed that after each molt, external appearance varied considerably only in non-adults, while adult appearance was invariable; marked sexual dimorphism exists in adults' external appearance; and a remarkable similarity of adult and neonate pelage exists.
