Maximizing pollutant removal in constructed wetlands: should we pay more attention to macrophyte species selection?
While the positive role of macrophytes on removal efficiency in constructed wetlands has been well established, possible differences in performance between plants species of comparable life forms andExpand

Risk and aggressiveness of breast cancer in relation to plasma organochlorine concentrations.
Several organochlorines identified as "hormone mimics" were proposed as possible risk factors for breast cancer. We conducted a case-control study to assess breast cancer risk and diseaseExpand

Nitrogen transformations and retention in planted and artificially aerated constructed wetlands.
Nitrogen (N) processing in constructed wetlands (CWs) is often variable, and the contribution to N loss and retention by various pathways (nitrification/denitrification, plant uptake and sedimentExpand

Artificial aeration to increase pollutant removal efficiency of constructed wetlands in cold climate
Abstract In horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetlands, oxygen availability, which is frequently low in summer, may be even more limiting in winter when the plants are dormant. We tested theExpand

Cross-protective efficacy of two human papillomavirus vaccines: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
BACKGROUND The extent of cross-protection is a key element in the choice of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to use in vaccination programmes. We compared the cross-protective efficacy of theExpand

Plant functional group identity and diversity determine biotic resistance to invasion by an exotic grass.
Summary 1. Biotic resistance, the ability of species in a community to limit invasion, is central to our understanding of how communities at risk of invasion assemble after disturbances, but it hasExpand

Population-level impact and herd effects following human papillomavirus vaccination programmes: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
BACKGROUND Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programmes were first implemented in several countries worldwide in 2007. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the population-levelExpand
