Elemental analysis of cetacean skull lesions associated with nematode infections

Elemental analysis of cetacean skull lesions associated with nematode infections

Diseases of Aquatic Organisms 42(1): 71-75

The elemental composition of both healthy and eroded cetacean skulls associated with nematode infections was evaluated. A total of 27 samples of eroded and non-eroded prepared museum cetacean (Tursiops truncatus) skulls were characterized by elemental (CHN), X-ray fluorescence, and X-ray diffraction methods. The inorganic composition and crystal line structure (hydroxyapatite-like minerals) were similar for both types of skull samples, but the CHN values clearly differed.
