  • Description:
    "The present pilot study was aimed at obtaining baseline information on selected health and disease parameters from three Hawaiian monk seal subpopulations. The objectives of the present study were to 1) assess baseline biomedical information of wild Hawaiian monk seals from three reproductive subpopulations at French Frigate Shoals, Midway Atoll, and Pearl and Hermes Reef; 2) assess evidence of exposure to specific disease agents in three sampled subpopulations using standard biomedical diagnostics for serology, bacteriology, virology, parasitology, and toxicology; and, 3) evaluate results obtained and provide recommendations regarding translocation strategies between surveyed subpopulations"--Intro.
