This Research Topic aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge of marine mammal immunology, with a particular emphasis on structural and functional studies at the protein and cellular level. This monographic collection aims to help gain more data regarding: a) The characterization of the immune system in several species of marine mammals, i.e. cetaceans, pinnipeds and sirenians; b) The interplay between the host's immune system and the most relevant pathogens, e.g., Morbillivirus, Brucella spp. and Toxoplasma gondii and c) The possible interplay between the immune system and environmental contaminants.
