Biochemical markers, specifically enzymes of the first phase of xenobiotic transformation-cytochrome P450 and ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD)-were used to determine the quantities of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in fish muscle (PCB, River Blanice was used as a control). The indicator species selected was the chub (Leuciscus cephalus L.). There(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of leeches of the genus Erpobdella as a means of assessing polychlorinated biphenyl contamination of watercourses. The River Skalice, heavily contaminated with PCBs, was selected as a model. The source of contamination was a road gravel processing factory in Rožmitál pod Třemšínem from which an estimated 1 metric(More)
BACKGROUND Brominated flame retardants (BFRs)--polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD)--belong to the group of relatively "new" environmental contaminants. The occurrence of these compounds in the Czech aquatic ecosystem was for the first time documented within the 3-year monitoring study initiated in 2001. In 2002-2003 HBCD(More)
