Deriving sediment quality guidelines from field-based species sensitivity distributions.
The determination of predicted no-effect concentrations (PNECs) and sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) of toxic chemicals in marine sediment is extremely important in ecological risk assessment.Expand

Use of field data to support European Water Framework Directive quality standards for dissolved metals.
Quality standards (QS) for dissolved metals in freshwaters have been proposed underthe European Water Framework Directive (WFD) and are based mainly upon laboratory ecotoxicity data. UncertaintiesExpand

Synergistic toxic effects of zinc pyrithione and copper to three marine species: Implications on setting appropriate water quality criteria.
Zinc pyrithione (ZnPT) is widely applied in conjunction with copper (Cu) in antifouling paints as a substitute for tributyltin. The combined effects of ZnPT and Cu on marine organisms, however, haveExpand

Temperature-dependent physiological and biochemical responses of the marine medaka Oryzias melastigma with consideration of both low and high thermal extremes.
This study aimed to investigate temperature effect on physiological and biochemical responses of the marine medaka Oryzias melastigma larvae. The fish were subjected to a stepwise temperature changeExpand

Economic Performance of Human Capital in Post-Reform China
Provincial data are used to examine the economic performance of China's human capital, adjusted by mortality and interprovincial migration figures. The perpetual-inventory approach is used to compileExpand

The difference between temperate and tropical saltwater species' acute sensitivity to chemicals is relatively small.
Due to a lack of saltwater toxicity data in tropical regions, toxicity data generated from temperate or cold water species endemic to North America and Europe are often adopted to derive waterExpand

Deriving site-specific sediment quality guidelines for Hong Kong marine environments using field-based species sensitivity distributions.
Field data of benthic communities and contaminant loadings in marine sediments measured in parallel can be used to derive sediment quality guidelines (SQGs) using a field-based species sensitivityExpand

Acute and chronic toxicities of Irgarol alone and in combination with copper to the marine copepod Tigriopus japonicus.
Irgarol 1051 has been widely used as a booster biocide in combination with copper (Cu) in antifouling paints. The combined toxicity of Irgarol with Cu on marine organisms, however, has not been fullyExpand

Effectiveness of a small marine reserve in southern China in protecting the harvested sea urchin Anthocidaris crassispina: A mark-and-recapture study
Abstract Assessment of the effectiveness of protected areas requires information on population characteristics of the target species. This study used a mark-and-recapture approach to examine theExpand
