Body burden of pesticides and wastewater-derived pollutants on freshwater invertebrates: Method development and application in the Danube River.
While environmental risk assessment is typically based on toxicant concentrations in water and/or sediment, awareness is increasing that internal concentrations or body burdens are the key toExpand

Estrogen pollution in a highly productive ecosystem off central-south Chile.
While the presence of steroid estrogens in the environment has become a major environmental and health concern, their occurrence in coastal sediments remains poorly characterized. In this study, weExpand

A theoretical estimation of the concentration of steroid estrogens in effluents released from municipal sewage treatment plants into aquatic ecosystems of central-southern Chile.
Endocrine disorders associated with sewage effluents have been documented in aquatic species from various regions of the world and sewage treatment works (STWs) are now widely recognized as one ofExpand

Combination of In Situ Feeding Rate Experiments and Chemical Body Burden Analysis to Assess the Influence of Micropollutants in Wastewater on Gammarus pulex
Wastewater discharge is one of the main sources of micropollutants within the aquatic environment. To reduce the risks for the aquatic environment, the reduction of the chemical load of wastewaterExpand
