Abstract: Provides broad assessment of health of Antarctica's birds and seals, set against background of available scientific and environmental information, and political and administrative processes. Reviews, case studies and health assessments include infectious and non-infectious causes of ill health. Appendices provide protocols for collection of samples for pathological analysis in event of disease being suspected among monitored species of birds, and for collecting samples for toxicological analyses; list of recommendations arising from Workshop on Diseases of Antarctic Wildlife held in Hobart in August 1998; report from Open-ended Intersessional Contact Group on Diseases of Antarctic Wildlife, dealing with risk assessment and practical measures to diminish risk; and unusual animal mortality response plan.
