Dear MARMAM  members,

(sorry for cross-postings!)

I am pleased to share with you a new publication in "Journal of Black
Sea/Mediterranean Environment" regarding Stranding records of Mediterranean
monk seal  Monachus monachus (Hermann, 1779) on the Aegean and
Mediterranean Sea coasts of Turkey between 2012 and 2018.

Danyer E., Danyer Aytemiz I., Tonay A.M., Erol U., Dede A. 2018. Stranding
records of Mediterranean monk seal *Monachus monachus* (Hermann, 1779) on
the Aegean and Mediterranean Sea coasts of Turkey between 2012 and 2018. J.
Black Sea/Mediterranean Environment 24(2): 128-139.

The   Mediterranean   monk   seal,   *Monachus   monachus*   (Hermann,
1779),   is   an endangered species according to International Union for
the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. Therefore it is of high
importance to monitor mortality/survival of all individuals to ensure the
sustainability of the population.  Eighteen monk seals  were found  dead  on
the  Turkish  coasts  of  the  Aegean  and  Mediterranean  Seas  between
February 2012 and April 2018. This paper reviews those strandings during
the seven-year period with the preliminary necropsy findings of three new
records; a female pup found in Antalya on 25 November 2017, an adult female
found in Muğla on 7 March 2018, and an adult female stranded on 16 April
2018 on the coast of İzmir. There are various  illness  causes,
virological,  parasitological,  or  microbiological,  which  effect monk
seals,  thus  systematic  necropsies  must  be  performed  as  soon  as
possible  on carcasses.

This is an *Open Access* paper, which is *freely available online* here:
