We are currently in the process of proposing a special session at next
years 9th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant in

Guiyang,China: June 7-12, 2009. The purpose of the session is to examine
the impacts of mercury contamination on marine ecosystems and the
resulting health effects on marine mammal populations.  A special focus
on the role these animals have as potential sentinels for human and
ecosystem health will be incorporated into the content. We are currently
looking for researchers who are involved in projects focusing on mercury
and health to submit tentative titles for either an oral or poster
presentations to participate in this conference. For more information on
the conference visit http://www.mercury2009.org
