Pollution biomarkers in estuarine animals: critical review and new perspectives.
Sodium turnover rate determines sensitivity to acute copper and silver exposure in freshwater animals.
Salinity effects on osmoregulation and growth of the euryhaline flounder Paralichthys orbignyanus
Mechanism of acute silver toxicity in Daphnia magna
The results clearly demonstrate that the key mechanism involved in acute Ag+ toxicity in D. magna, the most sensitive freshwater organism tested to date, resembles that described for freshwater fish--that is, inhibition of active sodium uptake by blockade of Na+,K(+)-ATPase.
Antioxidant responses and oxidative stress after microcystin exposure in the hepatopancreas of an estuarine crab species.
Physiological and antioxidant enzyme responses to acute and chronic exposure of Laeonereis acuta (Polychaeta, Nereididae) to copper
Oxidative stress responses in two populations of Laeonereis acuta (Polychaeta, Nereididae) after acute and chronic exposure to copper.
Sodium uptake in different life stages of crustaceans: the water flea Daphnia magna Strauss
Differential sensitivity of neonates and adults to iono- and osmoregulatory toxicants, such as metals, are discussed with respect to differences in whole-body Na+ uptake kinetics, as well as in the mechanisms of Na+ transport involved in the whole- body Na+.
Residues of persistent organochlorine contaminants in southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) from Elephant Island, Antarctica.
Data showed that concentrations of contaminants generally increased from pups < juveniles < adults and suggested that pups accumulated contaminants through transfer from the mother seals via transplacental and lactational routes, and that pesticides used either currently or in the recent past in countries in the southern hemisphere are the sources of contamination in the Antarctic region.
