In this study we explored the use of butter as a sampling matrix to reflect the regional and global scale distribution of PCBs and selected organochlorine pesticides/metabolites in air. This was because persistent organic pollutants (POPs) concentrate in dairy fats, where concentrations are controlled by feed intake (primarily from pasture/silage), which is(More)
to strengthen teaching and research in the field of international economics and closely related disciplines. Its specific objectives are: • to promote individual and group research by scholars within and outside the University of Adelaide • to strengthen undergraduate and postgraduate education in this field • to provide shorter training programs in(More)
This study was intended to provide data on the composition of soft PVC toys, addressing the widest practicable range of chemical additives and including non-phthalate additives. The study also included toys from as many countries as possible, since for many, no data were available. A total of 72 toys were purchased in 17 countries. The majority (64) were(More)
The tiger (Panthera tigris) is classified as endangered (IUCN, 2000). The population of wild tigers continues to decline, despite substantial conservation investments by governments and international agencies. This paper presents a formal economic analysis of the two most imminent threats to the survival of wild tigers: poaching of wild tigers and hunting(More)
Traditional grazing grounds near Amboseli National Park (Kenya) are rapidly converted to cropland – a process that closes important wildlife corridors. We explore the scope for introducing a “payments for ecosystem services” scheme to compensate pastoralists for spillover benefits associated with forms of land use that are compatible with wildlife(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the oral exposure predictions obtained early in drug discovery with a generic GastroPlus Advanced Compartmental And Transit (ACAT) model based on the in vivo intravenous blood concentration-time profile, in silico properties (lipophilicity, pKa) and in vitro high-throughput absorption-distribution-metabolism-excretion(More)
The potential for use of butter as a widely available, relatively uniform lipid-rich matrix for the determination of spatial distributions of persistent organic pollutants has already been demonstrated. The present study determines the contributions to toxicity equivalence (TEQ) from polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDD/Fs) and polychlorinated biphenyls(More)
