Item Identification

Title: SE Marine Mammal Histology/Tissue data
Status: In Work
Abstract:

Tissue samples are collected from stranded marine mammals in the Southeastern United States. These tissue samples are examined histologically and evaluated to identify diseases, parasites, and other factors that may result in morbidity and mortality of marine mammals. These data document the different types of diseases or other health effects seen in stranded marine mammals.

Purpose:

To study tissues collected from stranded marine mammals to identify the occurrence of diseases and injuries.

Notes:

Data includes marine mammal tissue archives and analytical results such as histology and gross necropy reports.
