Marine mammals are the subset of true mammals that have evolved unique characteristics for survival in an aquatic environment. The five major groups of marine mammals, cetacea, pinnipeds, mustelids, sirenia, and ursids, did not descend from a common phylogenetic line, and therefore vary greatly in their anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and habitat requirements. Due to these differences, the incidence and types of their diseases also vary. This chapter reviews the pathobiology, especially gross and microscopic changes, associated with certain diseases of marine mammals.
