Unravelling the neurophysiological basis of aggression in a fish model
BackgroundAggression is a near-universal behaviour with substantial influence on and implications for human and animal social systems. The neurophysiological basis of aggression is, however, poorlyExpand

A critical analysis of the biological impacts of plasticizers on wildlife
This review provides a critical analysis of the biological effects of the most widely used plasticizers, including dibutyl phthalate, diethylhexyl phthalate, dimethyl phthalate, butyl benzylExpand

Mechanisms of toxicity of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate on the reproductive health of male zebrafish.
Phthalates are ubiquitous in the aquatic environment and are known to adversely affect male reproductive health in mammals through interactions with multiple receptor systems. However, little isExpand

Gonadal transcriptome responses and physiological consequences of exposure to oestrogen in breeding zebrafish (Danio rerio).
Environmental oestrogens are widespread in the aquatic environment and cause alterations in sexual development and function in vertebrates. The molecular pathways underpinning these effects, however,Expand

An environmental estrogen alters reproductive hierarchies, disrupting sexual selection in group-spawning fish.
There is global concern regarding the potential impacts of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) on the health of wildlife and humans. Exposure to some estrogens, at concentrations found in theExpand

Physiological and health consequences of social status in zebrafish (Danio rerio)
Social status affects access to food, mates and shelter and has consequences for the physiology of individuals and their health status. In the zebrafish (Danio rerio), an emerging model for studiesExpand

Dominance hierarchies in zebrafish (Danio rerio) and their relationship with reproductive success.
The zebrafish has considerable potential for use as a model in the study of behavior in social systems, particularly dominance hierarchies, which are widespread in nature and can affect the lifelongExpand

Bisphenol A causes reproductive toxicity, decreases dnmt1 transcription, and reduces global DNA methylation in breeding zebrafish (Danio rerio)
ABSTRACT Bisphenol A (BPA) is a commercially important high production chemical widely used in epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics, and is ubiquitous in the environment. Previous studiesExpand

Variability in measures of reproductive success in laboratory-kept colonies of zebrafish and implications for studies addressing population-level effects of environmental chemicals.
Laboratory tests that quantify reproductive success using model fish species are used to investigate for population-level effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and other chemicalsExpand

Sexual reprogramming and estrogenic sensitization in wild fish exposed to ethinylestradiol.
Globally, feminization responses in wild male freshwater fish are caused by exposure to estrogenic chemicals, including natural and synthetic estrogens, contained in effluentsfromwastewater treatmentExpand
