Impacts of atrazine in aquatic ecosystems.
It is concluded that a single universal maximum limit on the atrazine application in catchments, as suggested by many regulatory authorities, does not provide adequate protection of the aquatic environment and it is advocated that flexible limits on the application ofatrazine be developed in line with the potential risk of contamination to surface and subsurface water and fragility of the underwater environment.

A comparison of trace element concentrations in cultured and wild carp (Cyprinus carpio) of Lake Kasumigaura, Japan.
The results suggest that despite their dietary differences, the wild and cultured fish were accumulating and distributing metals in the same manner and that aquaculture practices are not increasing metal concentrations in these fish. Expand
Arsenic contamination in Bangladesh groundwater: A major environmental and social disaster
The present article reviews the current arsenic contamination of ground water, hydrological systems, groundwater potential and utilization and environmental pollution in Bangladesh and clarifies the main actions required to ensure the sustainable development of water resources in Bangladesh. Expand
Effects of pesticides monitored with three sampling methods in 24 sites on macroinvertebrates and microorganisms.
The log mTUDM values derived from sediment concentrations were most important to establish a link with effects on macroinvertebrates, whereas log m tUDM of grab water samples had only minor contribution. Expand
Environmental Fate of Fungicides in Surface Waters of a Horticultural-Production Catchment in Southeastern Australia
Generally the concentrations of the fungicides detected were several orders of magnitude lower than reported ecotoxicological effect values, suggesting that concentrations of individual fungicides in the catchment were unlikely to pose an ecological risk. Expand
Risk assessment of heavy metals in soil previously irrigated with industrial wastewater in Shenyang, China.
The Zhangshi Irrigation Area (ZIA) in Shenyang, China should be abandoned for cultivated crops to prevent the Cd contamination of food chain and any associated hazards to human health. Expand
Pesticide and trace metal occurrence and aquatic benchmark exceedances in surface waters and sediments of urban wetlands and retention ponds in Melbourne, Australia
Samples of water and sediments were collected from 24 urban wetlands in Melbourne, Australia, in April 2010, and tested for more than 90 pesticides using a range of gas chromatographic (GC) andExpand
Copper fungicide residues in Australian vineyard soils.
Copper (Cu) concentrations were measured in Australian vineyard soils to assess the extent and magnitude of Cu accumulation resulting from the use of Cu-based fungicides and to indicate the likelyExpand
Metal Concentrations in Rice and Pulses of Samta Village, Bangladesh
Observations on metal concentrations in three species of shark (Deania calcea, Centroscymnus crepidater, and Centroscymnus owstoni) from southeastern Australian waters.
Deep sea dog sharks captured from the waters off western Victoria, Australia, in April and May 1998 were captured and the elements As, Ca, Cd, Cu, Fe, Hg, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Sr, and Zn were detected in the muscle tissue. Expand
