Plumage Coloration in Belted Kingfishers (Megaceryle alcyon) At a Mercury-contaminated River
Abstract. Because Belted Kingfishers (Megaceryle alcyon) eat a diet comprised primarily of fish they are a useful indicator species for aquatic contaminants such as mercury. Monitoring effortsExpand

Mercury Poisoning in a Free-Living Northern River Otter (Lontra canadensis)
A moribund 5-year-old female northern river otter (Lontra canadensis) was found on the bank of a river known to be extensively contaminated with mercury. It exhibited severe ataxia and scleralExpand
