Dolphins: Mammals of the families Delphinidae (ocean dolphins), Iniidae, Lipotidae, Pontoporiidae, and Platanistidae (all river dolphins). Among the most well-known species are the BOTTLE-NOSED DOLPHIN and the KILLER WHALE (a dolphin). The common name dolphin is applied to small cetaceans having a beaklike snout and a slender, streamlined body, whereas PORPOISES are small cetaceans with a blunt snout and rather stocky body. (From Walker's Mammals of the World, 5th ed, pp978-9)Bottle-Nosed Dolphin: The species Tursiops truncatus, in the family Delphinidae, characterized by a bottle-shaped beak and slightly hooked broad dorsal fin.Bottle Feeding: Use of nursing bottles for feeding.

In the United States, such packaging is controlled under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act which also stipulates requirements for tamper-resistance and child-resistance. Similar laws govern use elsewhere. (From Code of Federal Regulations, 21 CFR 1 Section 210, 1993) DRUG LABELING is also available.Mycology: The study of the structure, growth, function, genetics, and reproduction of fungi, and MYCOSES.Culture Media: Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.Bacteria: One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE).

Establishment of epidermal cell lines derived from the skin of the Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus). (1/109)

The Atlantic bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), a marine mammal found off the Atlantic coast, has become the focus of considerable attention because of an increasing number of mortality events witnessed in this species over the last several years along the southeastern United States. Assessment of the impact of environmental stressors on bottlenose dolphins (BND) has been difficult because of the protected status of these marine mammals. The studies presented herein focused on establishing epidermal cell cultures and cell lines as tools for the in vitro evaluation of environmental stressors on BND skin. Epidermal cell cultures were established from skin samples obtained from Atlantic BND and subjected to karyotype analysis. These cultures were further characterized using immunohistochemical methods demonstrating expression of cytokeratins. By two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE), we observed that the proteomic profile of BND skin tissue samples shared distinct similarities with that of skin-derived cultures. Epidermal cell cultures were transfected with a plasmid encoding the SV40 small t- and large T-antigens, as well as the neomycin-resistance gene. Five neomycin-resistant clones were isolated and expanded, and all of them proliferated at a faster rate than nontransfected BND epidermal cultures, which exhibited signs of senescence. Cell lysates prepared from two transfected clones were shown to express, by Western blot analysis, both SV40 tumor antigens. These experimental results are consistent with the concept that transfected clones expressing SV40 tumor antigens represent immortalized BND cell lines. Epidermal cell lines derived from Tursiops truncatus will provide a unique tool for studying key features of the interaction occurring between dolphins and the environment in which they live at their most crucial interface: the skin.  (+info)

Fatal necrotizing fasciitis and myositis in a captive common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) associated with Streptococcus agalactiae. (2/109)

A common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) was presented for necropsy after acute onset of gastrointestinal signs and cutaneous lesions that rapidly progressed to death. Gross and microscopic findings were characterized by locally extensive severe necrohemorrhagic fasciitis and cellulitis, and severe necrotizing myositis in the head and dorsocranial thorax, with numerous disseminated gram-positive cocci. Streptococcus agalactiae was isolated from the lesions and from visceral organs (liver and lung), and it was identified by standard microbiology techniques. This communication is the first report of necrotizing fasciitis in a marine mammal associated with S. agalactiae.  (+info)

Signature whistle shape conveys identity information to bottlenose dolphins. (3/109)

Bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) develop individually distinctive signature whistles that they use to maintain group cohesion. Unlike the development of identification signals in most other species, signature whistle development is strongly influenced by vocal learning. This learning ability is maintained throughout life, and dolphins frequently copy each other's whistles in the wild. It has been hypothesized that signature whistles can be used as referential signals among conspecifics, because captive bottlenose dolphins can be trained to use novel, learned signals to label objects. For this labeling to occur, signature whistles would have to convey identity information independent of the caller's voice features. However, experimental proof for this hypothesis has been lacking. This study demonstrates that bottlenose dolphins extract identity information from signature whistles even after all voice features have been removed from the signal. Thus, dolphins are the only animals other than humans that have been shown to transmit identity information independent of the caller's voice or location.  (+info)

Individual-based model framework to assess population consequences of polychlorinated biphenyl exposure in bottlenose dolphins. (4/109)

Marine mammals are susceptible to the effects of anthropogenic contaminants. Here we examine the effect of different polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) accumulation scenarios on potential population growth rates using, as an example, data obtained for the population of bottlenose dolphins from Sarasota Bay, Florida. To achieve this goal, we developed an individual-based model framework that simulates the accumulation of PCBs in the population and modifies first-year calf survival based on maternal blubber PCB levels. In our example the current estimated annual PCB accumulation rate for the Sarasota Bay dolphin population might be depressing the potential population growth rate. However, our predictions are limited both by model naivety and parameter uncertainty. We emphasize the need for more data collection on the relationship between maternal blubber PCB levels and calf survivorship, the annual accumulation of PCBs in the blubber of females, and the transfer of PCBs to the calf through the placenta and during lactation. Such data require continued efforts directed toward long-term studies of known individuals in wild and semiwild populations.  (+info)

Functional imaging of dolphin brain metabolism and blood flow. (5/109)

This report documents the first use of magnetic resonance images (MRIs) of living dolphins to register functional brain scans, allowing for the exploration of potential mechanisms of unihemispheric sleep. Diazepam has been shown to induce unihemispheric slow waves (USW), therefore we used functional imaging of dolphins with and without diazepam to observe hemispheric differences in brain metabolism and blood flow. MRIs were used to register functional brain scans with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) in trained dolphins. Scans using SPECT revealed unihemispheric blood flow reduction following diazepam doses greater than 0.55 mg kg(-1) for these 180-200 kg animals. Scans using PET revealed hemispheric differences in brain glucose consumption when scans with and without diazepam were compared. The findings suggest that unihemispheric reduction in blood flow and glucose metabolism in the hemisphere showing USW are important features of unihemispheric sleep. Functional scans may also help to elucidate the degree of hemispheric laterality of sensory and motor systems as well as in neurotransmitter or molecular mechanisms of unihemispheric sleep in delphinoid cetaceans. The findings also demonstrate the potential value of functional scans to explore other aspects of dolphin brain physiology as well as pathology.  (+info)

Dolphin continuous auditory vigilance for five days. (6/109)

The present report describes the first study of continuous vigilance in dolphins. Two adult bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), WEN (male) and SAY (female), maintained a very high detection rate of randomly presented, infrequent, 1.5-s target tones in a background of frequent 0.5-s equal-amplitude tones over five continuous 120-h sessions. The animals were able to maintain high levels (WEN 97, 87, 99%; SAY 93, 96%) of target detection without signs of sleep deprivation as indicated by behavior, blood indices or marked sleep rebound during 24 h of continuous post-experiment observation. Target response time overall (F = 0.384; P = 0.816) did not change between day 1 and day 5. However, response time was significantly slower (F = 21.566, P = 0.019) during the night (21.00-04.00 h) when the dolphins would have ordinarily been resting or asleep.  (+info)

Characterization of a Brucella sp. strain as a marine-mammal type despite isolation from a patient with spinal osteomyelitis in New Zealand. (7/109)

Naturally acquired infection of humans with a marine mammal-associated Brucella sp. has only been reported once previously in a study describing infections of two patients from Peru. We report the isolation and characterization of a strain of Brucella from a New Zealand patient that appears most closely related to strains previously identified from marine mammals. The isolate was preliminarily identified as Brucella suis using conventional bacteriological tests in our laboratory. However, the results profile was not an exact match, and the isolate was forwarded to four international reference laboratories for further identification. The reference laboratories identified the isolate as either B. suis or B. melitensis by traditional bacteriological methods in three laboratories and by a molecular test in the fourth laboratory. Molecular characterization by PCR, PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism, and DNA sequencing of the bp26 gene; IS711; the omp genes omp25, omp31, omp2a, and omp2b; IRS-PCR fragments I, III, and IV; and five housekeeping gene fragments was conducted to resolve the discrepant identification of the isolate. The isolate was identified to be closely related to a Brucella sp. originating from a United States bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and common seals (Phoca vitulina).  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of the first American bottlenose dolphin papillomavirus: Tursiops truncatus papillomavirus type 2. (8/109)

A novel papillomavirus (PV) was isolated from a genital condyloma of a free-ranging bottlenose dolphin inhabiting the coastal waters of Charleston Harbor, SC, USA: Tursiops truncatus papillomavirus type 2 (TtPV2). This novel virus represents the first isolated North American cetacean PV and the first American bottlenose dolphin PV. After the viral genome was cloned, sequenced and characterized genetically, phylogenetic analyses revealed that TtPV2 is most similar to the only published cetacean PV isolated and characterized thus far, Phocoena spinipinnis PV type 1 (PsPV1). A striking feature of the genome of TtPV2, as well as that of PsPV1, is the lack of an E7 open reading frame, which typically encodes one of the oncogenic proteins believed to be responsible for malignant transformation in the high-risk mucosotropic human papillomaviruses (HPVs). TtPV2 E6 contains a PDZ-binding motif that has been shown to be involved in transformation in the case of high-risk genital HPVs.  (+info)

In order to estimate the total bycatch in gillnet fisheries and to assess the impact on dolphin populations in the Menai Bay Conservation Area, a survey using independent observers aboard the fishing vessels was conducted in 2003/2004. The observer programme covered 23.6% and 24.5% of the drift- and bottom set gillnets effort, respectively. The estimated total bycatch was 13 Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins in drift gillnets and 4 humpback dolphins in bottom set gillnets representing 9.6% and 6.3%, respectively of the estimated 136 Indo-Pacific bottlenose and 63 humpback dolphins resident in the area in 2002. These bycatch levels were not considered sustainable. In 2007/2008 a second observer programme was conducted in the same area to investigate the effectiveness of acoustic alarms (pingers) in reducing the bycatch of dolphins in the drift- and bottom set gillnets. The observed effort in the drift gillnets was 257 sets without pingers and 251 sets with pingers representing 21% and 20% of the ...
Bottlenose dolphins, the genus Tursiops, are the most common members of the family Delphinidae, the family of oceanic dolphin. Molecular studies show the genus contains three species: the common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus), and the Burrunan dolphin (Tursiops australis). Bottlenose dolphins inhabit warm and temperate seas worldwide, being found everywhere except for the Arctic and Antarctic Circle regions. Bottlenose dolphins live in groups typically of 10-30 members, called pods, but group size varies from single individuals up to more than 1,000. Their diets consist mainly of forage fish. Dolphins often work as a team to harvest fish schools, but they also hunt individually. Dolphins search for prey primarily using echolocation, which is similar to sonar. They emit clicking sounds and listen for the return echos to determine the location and shape of nearby items, including potential prey. Bottlenose dolphins also use sound for ...
There is growing awareness of underwater noise in a variety of marine habitats, and how such noise may adversely affect marine species. This is of particular concern for acoustically-specialised species, such as dolphins. In order to ascertain the potential impacts of anthropogenic noise on these animals, baseline information is required for defining the soundscape of dolphin habitats. The Swan-Canning River system in Western Australia flows through the city of Perth, and experiences numerous anthropogenic activities. Despite this, the river system is home to a community of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus). To provide a baseline soundscape description of dolphin habitat, over 11,600 h of acoustic data were analysed from five sites within the Swan River (from Fremantle Inner Harbour to 20 km upstream) across an eight-year period. Multiple sound sources were recorded at these sites, including: snapping shrimp; fishes; dolphins; pile-driving; bridge and road traffic; and vessel

Artificial insemination (AI) with sex-sorted bottlenose dolphin spermatozoa provides female calves for obtaining more cohesive social groups and optimum genetic management of captive populations. However, distance of animals to the sorting facility represents a limit to the procedure. Although one bottlenose dolphin calf has been born using spermatozoa from frozen-thawed, sorted and recryopreserved spermatozoa, critical evaluation of the steps involved in this process is required to maximize its efficiency for future AIs and expansion of the technology to other species. Two experiments were designed to determine the efficiency of the sorting process and the quality of frozen-thawed bottlenose dolphin spermatozoa during sorting and recryopreservation. In experiment 1, the effect of two washing media (with and without 4 percent egg yolk, v/v) following density gradient centrifugation (DGC) on sperm recovery rate and in vitro characteristics of cryopreserved spermatozoa was examined. In experiment ...
Parainfluenza virus (PIV) is a leading cause of respiratory infections in humans. A novel virus closely related to human and bovine parainfluenza viruses types 3 (HPIV-3 and BPIV-3), named Tursiops truncatus parainfluenza virus type 1 (TtPIV-1), was isolated from a dolphin with respiratory disease. We developed a dolphin-specific ELISA to measure acute- and convalescent-phase PIV antibodies in dolphins during 1999-2006 with hemograms similar to that of the positive control. PIV seroconversion occurred concurrently with an abnormal hemogram in 22 animals, of which 7 (31.8%) had respiratory signs. Seroprevalence surveys were conducted on 114 healthy bottlenose dolphins in Florida and California. When the most conservative interpretation of positive was used, 11.4% of healthy dolphins were antibody positive, 29.8% were negative, and 58.8% were inconclusive. PIV appears to be a common marine mammal virus that may be of human health interest because of the similarity of TtPIV-1 to BPIV-3 and HPIV-3.
A virus similar to measles in humans is being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.. Experts at the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say the Morbillivirus infects the lungs and the brain, causes pneumonia and abnormal behaviour, and is often fatal.. The outbreak has killed 333 bottlenose dolphins in the mid-Atlantic region since July, and may last for a year, possibly being worse than an outbreak 25 years ago which killed more than 740 animals.. Teri Rowles of the NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program says experts are worried about a repeat of those deaths.. "We are expecting that if indeed this plays out the way that die-off occurred, that we are looking at mortality being higher and morbillivirus spreading southward and likely continuing until spring of 2014," she said.. Nine times the average number of dolphins have washed up along the shores of the east coast this summer.. Most of the dolphins found on beaches have ...
This joy is often relived now with guests I take to meet the Dolphins of Ponta.. Later on in life I was to learn that dolphins were revered amongst ancient civilizations and to swim with dolphins ranked top on bucket lists. I discovered that dolphins are highly intelligent and are, in essence, persons. I learned that they are befriend-able and if approached in the right way, with the right attitude, these sentient beings would never cease to amaze.. The coastal waters off the east African seaboard are home to populations of semi resident Indo-Pacific, inshore bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus). These gregarious dolphins are different from their larger and more robust oceanic counterparts Tursiops truncates, the common bottlenose dolphin, in that they freckle on their bellies and have a longer and more slender beak.. The Dolphins of Ponta are one such population. Some 250 individuals live within a complex cross border network which traverses the towering duned coastline and surrounding ...
ABSTRACT: An unusual mortality event (UME) involving primarily common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus of all size classes stranding along coastal Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, USA, started in early 2010 and continued into 2014. During this northern Gulf of Mexico UME, a distinct cluster of perinatal dolphins (total body length ,115 cm) stranded in Mississippi and Alabama during 2011. The proportion of annual dolphin strandings that were perinates between 2009 and 2013 were compared to baseline strandings (2000-2005). A case-reference study was conducted to compare demographics, histologic lesions, and Brucella sp. infection prevalence in 69 UME perinatal dolphins to findings from 26 reference perinates stranded in South Carolina and Florida outside of the UME area. Compared to reference perinates, UME perinates were more likely to have died in utero or very soon after birth (presence of atelectasis in 88 vs. 15%, p , 0.0001), have fetal distress (87 vs. 27%, p , 0.0001), and have ...

Just as in humans, it is possible to learn about a dolphins health from physiological biomarkers measured in their blood. However, blood sampling is a medical procedure that requires careful handling of animals in controlled conditions, which can be challenging and untenable in some field research applications. Feces and saliva, like blood, are composed of biological compounds that may serve as biomarkers of health and can provide a less invasive and potentially more feasible method for monitoring health in some wild cetacean populations and for animals under professional care.. Our team is developing methodology to identify and measure various biomarkers of health in feces and saliva from the bottlenose dolphin population in Sarasota Bay, and from a group of bottlenose dolphins under professional care residing at the Chicago Zoological Societys Brookfield Zoo in Illinois.

According to marine biologist Dagmar Fertl, this event was only the third reported sighting of an albino bottlenose dolphin in the Gulf of Mexico (going back to 1994), and the fourteenth spotting anywhere in the world (the first coming in 1962). Biologists speculate that, in addition to the rarity of their birth, the scarcity of albino bottlenose dolphins might be due to their having poor eyesight, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and a coloration that provides poor camouflaging, factors which could significantly decrease their chances of reaching maturity. ...
The feeding performance of two bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and one juvenile pygmy and dwarf sperm whale (Kogia breviceps and K. sima) was compared during controlled feeding trials. Feeding behavior was characterized and a Ram-Suction Index (RSI) measured. The feeding behavior of both genera was composed of four phases: preparatory (Phase I), jaw opening (Phase II), gular depression (Phase III) and jaw closing (Phase IV). The mean Kogia total feeding cycle duration (533 ms; SD±150) was shorter than the mean for Tursiops (847 ms; SD±349). The mean maximum gape angle was greater for Kogia (56.6º; SD±3.3) than for Tursiops (25.5º; SD±8.5). The mean Kogia RSI (-0.04; SD±0.378) was significantly less (p,0.001) than the mean Tursiops RSI (0.71; SD±0.14), indicating a suction and ram-based strategy for Kogia and Tursiops, respectively. The significantly shorter (p,0.05) Kogia jaw opening phase (172 ms; SD±75) supports the RSI results. Tursiops displayed two feeding behaviors, a ...
Prostephanus truncatus (Horn) is a pest of stored maize that has caused major problems since appearing in Africa, though it is regarded as a minor pest in Mexico and Central America. The ability of P. truncatus to feed and breed on a great variety of environments, raises the questions to whether this beetle can break down starch and cellulose. The digestive system of P. truncatus may explain its host range. The digestive systems of adults and larvae of three P. truncatus strains from different geographic regions (Mexico, Togo, and Tanzania) were the subjects of the present work. The anatomical study of the digestive system of P. truncatus shows that the guts of adults and larvae were externally different and that these differences reflect different life spans and their different feeding habits. The internal anatomy, is similar, with the exception of the presence of peritrophic membrane and glycogen-like granules in the midgut of the adult stage. There is a cryptonephric system present in both ...

A Sept. 11 CDC advisory pointed out that the whole genome sequencing showed samples of the bacteria isolated from the stools of puppies sold through Petland stores in Florida were closely related to Campylobacter "isolated from the stool of an ill person in Ohio.". CDC advisories indicate that the first reports of illnesses came from people Ohio.. When the Sarasota County Commission held a public hearing in January 2016 on a proposed ban of retail sales of dogs and cats, a number of people who testified in opposition to the new ordinance were breeders of puppies for Petland. Several identified themselves as Ohio residents.. Petland has continued to sell puppies at its Sarasota store while its owners and Sarasota County continue in litigation over the prohibition of retail sales of dogs and cats, which went into effect in late January this year.

Ok, so we get past the ads and we buy the product. Most of the stuff is utter and total crap. Remember the days you could buy a tea kettle and it would last long enough to leave to your kids? Im not even talking high technology here, just a kettle. How difficult is it to make a kettle that holds water, looks nice, and whistles when the water boils so you dont burn your house down (or at the very least dont melt the kettle all over your stove top, been there done that). About six months ago I stupidly didnt put the whistle on my kettle… you get the idea. I have bought three kettles since then. The first one was so cheap it didnt whistle even though it was supposed to, the next was expensive but too small, and the third now reposes on my stove. Its black, it has a whistle, its made by Kitchen Aid. It sucks. Really it does. The whistle is so faint its more like a slow leak and there is physically no way to pour boiling water out of it without sloshing scalding water all over the place ...

So what are we to do in the meantime, while we wait for collapse, followed by good things? Its no use wasting your energy, running yourself ragged and ageing prematurely, so get plenty of rest, and try to live a slow and measured life. One of the ways industrial society dominates us is through the use of the factory whistle: few of us work in factories, but we are still expected to work a shift. If you can avoid doing that, you will be ahead. Maintain your freedom to decide what to do at each moment, so that you can do each thing at the most opportune time. Specifically try to give yourself as many options as you can, so that if any one thing doesnt seem to be working out, you can switch to another. The future is unpredictable, so try to plan so as to be able to change your plans at any time. Learn to ignore all the people who earn their money by telling you lies. Thanks to them, the world is full of very bad ideas that are accepted as conventional wisdom, so watch out for them and come to ...

Bottlenose dolphins have widely spaced eyes, relatively long flippers, a rounded forehead (called a melon), a relatively short, broad snout, and a mouth that seems permanently twisted into a grin. Inside the mouth are as many as 100 teeth. Highly social, bottlenose dolphins often swim in groups of several hundred individuals, and are famous for racing alongside watercraft. Some stay in coastal waters and others swim offshore. In the Atlantic, the coastal dolphins feed mostly on sea trout, croakers, and spot. The offshore population follows the Gulf Stream and feeds on deep-water fish and squid. Three different populations have been identified in the North Pacific: a temperate-water group, a tropical-water group, and a coastal group ...
Since 1996, the OCS research team has studied bottlenose dolphins inhabiting Los Angeles waters, California, focusing primarily on the coastal population (see publications). We have found these animals to be present in the area year-round using the Santa Monica Bay and adjacent coastline mostly for feeding on bottom fish. Our past research shows that this area is an important foraging hotspot for this coastal dolphin population.. Since 1996, our research team has also carried out a long-term study on the offshore population of bottlenose dolphins in California, collecting data on these animals up to 40 miles from shore. This is a challenging task considering the logistical difficulties of recording data on these pelagic and wide-ranging animals!. In 2009, our scientists published a scientific paper entitled Ecology and comparison of coastal and offshore bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in California. Results from this investigation highlighted the need for more studies on this offshore ...
Small coastal dolphins endemic to south-eastern Australia have variously been assigned to described species Tursiops truncatus, T. aduncus or T. maugeanus; however the specific affinities of these animals is controversial and have recently been questioned. Historically the southern Australian Tursiops was identified as unique and was formally named Tursiops maugeanus but was later synonymised with T. truncatus. Morphologically, these coastal dolphins share some characters with both aforementioned recognised Tursiops species, but they also possess unique characters not found in either. Recent mtDNA and microsatellite genetic evidence indicates deep evolutionary divergence between this dolphin and the two currently recognised Tursiops species. However, in accordance with the recommendations of the Workshop on Cetacean Systematics, and the Unified Species Concept the use of molecular evidence alone is inadequate for describing new species. Here we describe the macro-morphological, colouration and cranial
The negative impact of loud anthropogenic sounds on whales and dolphins has been demonstrated in a variety of disturbances of their mode of life. In particular, these sounds have been associated with the stranding of whales and dolphins (Evans and England, 2001). Current mitigation procedures to protect whales and dolphins from intense sound focus primarily on finding and avoiding them. Alternative mitigation strategies might be a reasonable augmentation to current efforts, in particular, strategies based on the abilities of the animals to mitigate the sounds themselves. If warned, and allowed to change their hearing sensitivity, dolphins and whales might be able to protect their hearing via self-mitigation. Previous work on terrestrial species has shown that loud sounds can trigger avoidance behavior as effectively as other noxious stimuli (Belluzzi and Grossman, 1969). Escape/avoidance behavioral responses to sounds have also been established in various seal species (Götz and Janik, 2010). ...
The identification of species and population boundaries is important in both evolutionary and conservation biology. In recent years, new population genetic and computational methods for estimating population parameters and testing hypotheses in a quantitative manner have emerged. Using a Bayesian framework and a quantitative model-testing approach, we evaluated the species status and genetic connectedness of bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops spp.) populations off remote northwestern Australia, with a focus on pelagic offshore dolphins subject to incidental capture in a trawl fishery. We analysed 71 dolphin samples from three sites beyond the 50 m depth contour (the inshore boundary of the fishery) and up to 170 km offshore, including incidentally caught and free-ranging individuals associating with trawl vessels, and 273 dolphins sampled at 12 coastal sites inshore of the 50 m depth contour and within 10 km of the coast. Results from 19 nuclear microsatellite markers showed significant population ...

My research interests are diverse but include investigating exposure and effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), especially polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in marine apex predator species in European waters such as killer whales (Orcinus orca) and bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). This involves longstanding collaborative work with Robin Law, Jon Barber and other colleagues at Cefas Lowestoft laboratory in Suffolk. Although PCB use/manufacture was banned in Europe in the 1980s, blubber PCB concentrations consistently exceed all known thresholds for mammalian toxicity and are likely to be the main driver of marked population declines in European marine apex predators like killer whales (orcas), bottlenose dolphins and striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) in the NE Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea regions (Jepson et al 2016). PCB concentrations did initially decline in biota following an EU-ban in the mid-1980s, but PCBs have now stabilised in most European biota. For many ...
Adapting to the aquatics lifestyle required changes to the internal body and function of the the ,i,Delphinus,/i,. Being that dolphins live in the water, there is a much higher need of kidney function. The amount of water that flows through and around the dolphin is significantly more than the terrestrial mammals. The genes SMAD1, NPNT, LEF1, SERPINF1, and AQP2 are critical for the modifications of the kidney.,ref,Hill DA, Reynolds JE "Gross and microscopic anatomy of the kidney of the West Indian manatee, Trichechus manatus (Mammalian: Sirenia), 1989. Acta Anat 135: 53-56,/ref, These genes allow for the dolphins to have a reniculate kidney. Reniculate kidneys are found in aquatic mammals. They allow for a large surface area for removing toxins from the body more efficiently.

Franciscana dolphins (Pontoporia blainvillei) have a range that hugs the Atlantic coast of Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina. This species is one of the worlds smallest cetaceans and is a member of the river dolphin family, although it actually lives in coastal waters and estuaries. Females probably begin to have calves between two and five years and probably stay with each calf for some time. Because researchers estimate that between two and five percent of the Fransiscana population near Argentina becomes entangled in fishing nets from small-scale operations each year, the by-catch death rate has a significant impact on the population numbers. By-catch is the biggest impact to small cetacean populations world-wide.. "The by-catch in lost Franciscana dolphins is comparable to what the population produces in terms of offspring," says Pablo Bordino of Fundación Aquamarina in Buenos Aires, Argentina. "To know that Franciscana family groups are being caught in certain areas allows us to focus our ...

In the Mediterranean Sea, top predators, and particularly cetacean odontocetes, accumulate high concentrations of organochlorine contaminants and toxic metals, incurring high toxicological risk. In this paper we investigate the use of the skin biopsies as a non-lethal tool for evaluating toxicological hazard of organochlorines in Mediterranean cetaceans, presenting new data 10 years after the paper published by Fossi and co-workers [Mar. Poll. Bull. 24 (9) (1992) 459] in which this new methodology was first presented. Some organochlorine compounds, now with worldwide distribution, are known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Here the unexplored hypothesis that Mediterranean cetaceans are potentially at risk due to organochlorines with endocrine disrupting capacity is investigated. High concentrations of DDT metabolites and PCB congeners (known as EDCs) were found in the different Mediterranean species (Stenella coeruleoalba, Delphinus delphis, Tursiops truncatus and Balaenoptera ...
This case reports the presence of meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a colony of cetaceans maintained under human care. MRSA isolates of the same strain were cultured from multiple organs of two dolphins that died with septicaemia. Following these mortalities and in consideration of the zoonotic potential of this pathogen, a decolonisation protocol was developed and applied to reduce the risk of exposure to humans and animals. After monitoring for MRSA presence in the animals, environment and staff, a strict sanitation protocol was applied for 15 months, with the aim of controlling MRSA. This protocol reduced the incidence of this pathogen and its involvement in acute clinical cases. The transmission between cetaceans and the implication of human reservoirs are discussed as important issues for veterinarians, facility managers and public health officials. ...
Marine Mammals: Fisheries, Tourism and Management Issues brings together contributions from 68 leading scientists from 12 countries to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date review on the way we manage our interactions with whales, dolphins, seals and dugongs. The book examines how we have fared conserving the worlds marine mammal populations, with a focus on the key issues of fisheries and tourism. From a unique southern hemisphere perspective, the authors consider how science informs the culling debate, how wild fisheries and aquaculture interact with marine mammal populations and how we might manage the effects of whale, dolphin and seal watching industries. The authors also address other issues such as the way in which ethics, genetics, acoustics, ecosystem models and pollution influence the management and conservation of marine mammals. Marine Mammals is an invaluable and accessible resource for all those involved with marine mammals, including scientists, managers, policy makers, industry
