Dear ECS and MARMAM members,

The following workshop will be held at the forthcoming ECS Conference, Setúbal, Portugal:

Workshop on "Marine Mammal Morbilliviruses", Sunday, 7th of April 2013

Morbilliviruses have long been known as the cause of serious diseases in a wide range of mainly terrestrial domestic and wildlife species. Since their characterisation in the 1980s, morbilliviruses have been reported in an increasing number of marine mammal species and both phocine distemper virus (PDV) and cetacean morbillivirus (CeMV) have been associated with mass mortalities in pinnipeds and cetaceans, respectively. The workshop aims to discuss marine mammal morbillivirus epidemiology, taxonomy and phylogeny, clinical signs and lesions, diagnostics, as well as other relevant factors, in order to improve our knowledge about and to understand the consequences of these infections.
