A study of haul out and adjacent non-haul out rocks of the Pacific harbor seal Phoca vitulina nchardii (Gray), Rice, on the Monterey Peninsula of California (USA), revealed significant differences in algal morphology and per cent composition, and in numbers of animals present. It is suggested that the mechanical and chemical impact imposed by the seals on the haul out sites are responsible for these differences.
