From the molecular level to the role in human economic affairs, dolphins are examined by researchers in the appropriate sciences, some reporting their own research and others surveying the literature. Among the topics are heavy metals in dolphins from the northern Adriatic Sea and potential subtle toxic effects, molecular approaches to deciphering dolphin's genetic information, the Mediterranean common bottlenose dolphin's repertoire and communication use, the use and function of distinctive whistle-like signals in the bottlenose dolphin, traditional uses and conservation of dolphins in Brazil, differences between solitary and group time budget in estuarine dolphins (Sotalia guianesis) in northeastern Brazil, and whether affiliative body contact repairs relationships among bottlenose dolphins.
