EMBRYONIC MORTALITY AND ABNORMALITIES OF AQUATIC BIRDS: APPARENT IMPACTS OF SELENIUM FROM IRRIGATION DRAINWATER
Abstract Severe reproductive impacts were found in aquatic birds nesting on irrigation drainwater ponds in the San Joaquin Valley of California. Of 347 nests studied to late incubation or toExpand

Ecotoxicology of Selenium
The Use of Treatment Wetlands for Petroleum Industry Effluents
Although the use of treatment wetlands is well established for wastewater categories such as municipal waste, stormwater, and acid mine drainage water, their use in treating a variety of industrialExpand
Contaminants in Wintering Canvasbacks and Scaups from San Francisco Bay, California
Organochlorines, metals, and trace elements were measured in liver, kidney, or whole-body tissues of canvasbacks (Aythya valisineria), lesser scaups (A. affinis), and greater scaups (A. marila)Expand
Contaminants in Drainage Water and Avian Risk Thresholds
The toxicity of selenium to avian embryos is one of the most restrictive constraints on options for managing agricultural drainage water. Although selenium in eggs strongly predicts embryotoxicity,Expand
Biogeochemical cycling of selenium in the San Joaquin Valley, California, USA
Subsurface agricultural drainage waters from western San Joaquin Valley, California, were found to contain elevated concentrations of the element selenium in the form of selenate. In 1978, theseExpand
Association of mercury and selenium with altered glutathione metabolism and oxidative stress in diving ducks from the San Francisco bay region, USA
Adult male greater scaup (Aythya marila), surf scorers (Melanitta perspicillata), and ruddy ducks (Oxyura jamaicensis) were collected from Suisun Bay and coastal Tomales Bay in the greater SanExpand
