B-cell lymphoma, a common morphologic variant of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, has been associated with persistent pollutants in humans, but this association is not well-characterized in top-level predators sharing marine resources with…


Dentinal anomalies in teeth of harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) from Scottish waters: Are they linked to sexual maturation and environmental events?

Luque, P. L.; Pierce, G. J.; Learmonth, J. A.; Santos, M. B.; Ieno, E.; López, A.; Reid, R. J.; Rogan, E.; González, A. F.; Boon, J.; Law, R. J.; Lockyer, C. H.
Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom (2009)

We examined the tooth ultra-structure of harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) from Scottish waters to determine whether the incidence of mineralization anomalies could be related to certain life history events (e.g.…
