Bone Pathology

Melinda Sweeney and Greg Early

Cetacean bones exhibit a wide variety of chronic bone pathology. We are interested in diagnosing pathologies we have observed in the context of aquatic locomotion and diving. See for instance: 2005 Sweeny, M., J. Price, G. Jones, T. French, G. Early, M. Moore (2005) Spondylitic changes in long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melas) stranded on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA, between 1982 and 2000. J. Wildlife Disease 41: 717-727
