Such commonalities have led biologists to consider marine mammals as a group. There are other similarities among marine mammals as well. They are united by habitat requirements, in that all are dependent on an aquatic ecosystem for survival. This dependency makes them visible indicators of habitat degradation; the occurrence of more than 1000 dead striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) in the Mediterranean Sea and adjacent bodies of water in the early 1990s (Marine Mammal Commission 1995a) sent an important warning to people dependent on the marine ecosystem for their livelihood, especially when it was found that the dolphins that died carried significantly higher pesticide loads than “normal” (Aguilar and Borrell 1994).
