Dįlking ķ grindahvali kannast

Umhvųrvisstovan hevur fingiš jįttaš stušul śr Granskingarrįšnum, til eina PhD-ritgerš, sum skal lżsa og kanna įrin av dįlkandi evnum ķ grindahvali



PhD ritgeršin skal fremjast av Katrin Hoydal, sum ķ dag starvast į Granskingardeildini į Umhvųrvisstovuni. Įšrenn hetta starvašist hon frį įr 2000 į umhvųrvisdeildini į Heilsufrųšiligu Starvsstovuni. Katrin hevur arbeitt viš umhvųrviseftiransing og luttikiš millum annaš ķ kanningum av dįlkandi evnum ķ fiski, hvali, fugli, botntilfari og annars taš sum PhD kanningarętlanin fevnir um.

Tilfar til PhD lesturin er partvķs savnašur inn og partvķs er ętlanin at fįa nųkur nżggj sżnir av grindahvali ķ 2011. Umhvųrvisstovan fer at hżsa Katrin stųrsta partin av tķšin,i sum PhD lesturin tekur, men talan veršur eisini um lestraruppihaldi ķ ųšrum londum.

Nišanfyri veršur endamįliš viš PhD kanningarętlanini endurgiviš į enskum:

The aims of this study is to investigate the effects of POPs on pilot whales sampled in connection with the traditional whale hunt at the Faroe Islands. This will be done by analysing the pilot whales for POPs and mercury concentration (in liver, blubber, blood, kidney and muscle) and several biomarkers of contaminant exposure, including thyroid hormones (TT4, TT3, FT4 and FT3 in plasma), steroids (incl. estrogens and androgens in plasma), Vitamin A (retinoids in liver, blubber and plasma), Cytocrome P450 enzymes related to biotransformation of xenobiotics and steroids, and other molecular responses related to contaminant exposure including gene expression of hormone receptors (androgen-, estrogen- and thyriod receptors).

These analyses are integral components of overt physiology, reproduction and health condition of these whales that are potentially under contaminant stress with possible deleterious consequences for longterm survival and recruitment.
