Antidepressant pharmaceuticals in two U.S. effluent-impacted streams: occurrence and fate in water and sediment, and selective uptake in fish neural tissue.
TLDR
It is documents that wastewater effluent can be a point source of antidepressants to stream ecosystems and that the qualitative composition of antidepressants in brain tissue from exposed fish differs substantially from the compositions observed in streamwater and sediment, suggesting selective uptake. Expand
Reproductive disruption in fish downstream from an estrogenic wastewater effluent.
TLDR
The results indicate that the reproductive potential of native fishes may be compromised in wastewater-dominated streams. Expand
Antidepressants at environmentally relevant concentrations affect predator avoidance behavior of larval fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas).
TLDR
Mixtures of these four antidepressant pharmaceuticals slowed predator avoidance behaviors in larval fathead minnows regardless of the exposure window, providing an avenue to assess the ecological relevance of exposure in an assay of relatively short duration. Expand
Demasculinization of male fish by wastewater treatment plant effluent.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the reproductive disruption observed in this watershed is due to endocrine-active chemicals in the WWTP effluent is supported. Expand
Hormones and reproduction of vertebrates
TLDR
This series of volumes represents a comprehensive and integrated treatment of reproduction in vertebrates from fishes of all sorts through mammals as well as an introduction to the latest trends in reproductive research and the authors' understanding of reproductive events. Expand
Predator avoidance performance of larval fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) following short-term exposure to estrogen mixtures.
TLDR
The hypotheses that larval fathead minnows exposed to estrogens, a primary class of EDCs, suffer a reduced ability to perform an innate C-start behavior when faced with a threat stimulus are tested. Expand
Intersex and other reproductive disruption of fish in wastewater effluent dominated Colorado streams.
TLDR
The types and extent of sexual disruption differed in each river studied, and Gonad deformities and delayed follicular maturation were noted in some white suckers in Boulder Creek and the South Platte River downstream of the WWTP effluents. Expand
Cortisol and Pacific Salmon: A New Look at the Role of Stress Hormones in Olfaction and Home-stream Migration1
TLDR
It is proposed that the increase in plasma cortisol during Pacific salmon home-stream migration is adaptive because it enhances the salmon's ability to recall the imprinted memory of the “HSOB” (Carruth, 1998; Carruth et al., 2000b). Expand
Impaired adrenocortical response to stress by brown trout, Salmo trutta, living in metal-contaminated waters of the Eagle River, Colorado.
TLDR
The results suggest that the overall response to severe, short-term confinement stress by the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical axis of fish chronically exposed to Cd and Zn was depressed and that these fish could not sustain the stress response as readily as fish living in uncontaminated water.
