Hello,

On Sunday 6 April 2014 (morning) at the upcoming Annual Conference of the
European Cetacean Society, there will be an international workshop on:


"*New developments in toxicological studies in marine mammals". *


Abstract: It has been shown, numerous times already, that marine mammals
are exposed to a wide variety of pollutants and that they also experience
the toxic impact of these pollutants on their health and overall
well-being. Since pollution is an ever-changing issue, the methods,
approaches and techniques to assess or detect pollution must be equally
dynamic. The goals of this workshop are to provide overviews of current
practices and to highlight gaps in current knowledge. Since some of these
gaps can be filled by non-toxicologists, this workshop will be open for
everybody.
