The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) has collected water quality data in Massachusetts and Cape Cod Bays for the Harbor and Outfall Monitoring (HOM) Program since 1992. This monitoring is in support of the HOM Program mission to assess the potential environmental effects of the relocation of effluent discharge from Boston Harbor to(More)

Significant decrease in scope for growth is observed at total low molecular weight tissue residues greater than(More)
Executive Summary Since its creation in 1985, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) has worked to minimize the effects of discharging sewage effluent to the marine environment. The MWRA program includes source reduction to prevent pollutants from entering the sewage system, improved treatment, and effective dilution. One aspect of the program,(More)

This review summarizes evidence that supports working hypotheses for the roles of boron in animal model systems. It is well established that vascular plants, diatoms, and some species of marine algal flagellates have acquired an absolute requirement for boron, although the primary role of boron in plants remains unknown. Recent research findings suggest(More)
Three experiments were conducted to test the behavior of the offspring of rat dams (ZD) fed a mildly zinc deficient diet (10.0 micrograms Zn/g) during pregnancy and lactation. Since zinc deficiency causes anorexia, a second group of rat dams (PF) was fed the same quantity of the diet during gestation and lactation as was consumed by their ZD mates. A third(More)
