A Review of the Effects of Multiple Stressors on Aquatic Organisms and Analysis of Uncertainty Factors for Use in Risk Assessment
Quantitative analysis of data indicated that an uncertainty factor for the laboratory to field extrapolation should be smaller than one for an ecosystem in a temperate region, while a factor greater than one would be appropriate for systems nearby discharge points of cooling water.
Thermal time – concepts and utility
It is argued that the relationship is often linear over much of the range up to the thermal optimum (T o ) and a possible mechanism and evidence of a trade-off between the base temperature (T b ) and the thermal constant (DD) that enables each species to adapt to its thermal environment is provided.
Ecotoxicology becomes stress ecology.
A merger between ecotoxicology and ecology may give rise to a new science at the crossroads of ecology, genomics, and bioinformatics.
Comparison of cadmium kinetics in four soil arthropod species
The study of uptake and excretion of cadmium by individual species provides a suitable tool for predicting the amount in the different soil invertebrates and for calculating pollutant fluxes.
Metal concentrations in soil and invertebrates in the vicinity of a metallurgical factory near Tula (Russia).
Summary To investigate the effects of emissions from a large metal works near Tula in the Russian Federation, we measured concentrations of iron, manganese, zinc, copper, nickel, lead and cadmium in
An Introduction to Ecological Genomics
This work has shown clear trends in life-history patterns and genome analysis that are consistent with the findings of previous studies of ecological genomics and genomeAnalysis.
Functional ecological genomics to demonstrate general and specific responses to abiotic stress
An overview of transcriptomic studies aiming to elucidate how plants and soil invertebrates respond and adapt to a stressful environment suggests that there is a large overlap of genomic responses to drought, salinity and cold; however, heat and heavy metals trigger different stress response pathways.
Adaptation to soil pollution by cadmium excretion in natural populations of Orchesella cincta (L.) (Collembola)
Population differentiation in Orchesella cincta (L.) (Collembola) populations, from various heavy metal contaminated sites, was studied by comparing cadmium excretion efficiency in first generation (F1) laboratory individuals, showing that both parameters were inversely related.
Environmental stress and cellular response in arthropods
This book discusses the role of cellular response systems in developing tolerance to environmental stress, and the integrated cellular stress defense system.
