Marine Mammals and Pesticides
 Marine mammals lack a protein that protects terrestrial mammals from organophosphate pesticides.  (They may or may not have a different type of protection.)  I immediately wonder if this has anything to do with problems such as beaching and skin deformities.  Reports from previous studies point to a need to study how marine mammals respond during spikes of organophosphate runoff.
