This project will support understanding and restoration of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) through the synthesis of existing data to describe the physiological and biological responses to low salinity exposures. Activities are to compile and evaluate data, develop and implement models, conduct expert analysis, and complete a report of findings from this effort.
