Passive-sampler derived air concentrations of persistent organic pollutants on a north-south transect in Chile.
Passive air samplers consisting of polyurethane foam (PUF) disks, were deployed in six locations in Chile along a north-south transect to investigate gas-phase concentrations of polychlorinatedExpand

Sex differences in Adélie penguin foraging strategies
Abstract Consistent sex differences in foraging trip duration, feeding locality and diet of breeding Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) were demonstrated at two widely separated locations overExpand

Perfluorooctanesulfonate and related fluorinated hydrocarbons in marine mammals, fishes, and birds from coasts of the Baltic and the Mediterranean Seas.
Perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS; C8F17SO3-), perfluorooctanesulfonamide (FOSA; C8F17SO2NH2), perfluorohexanesulfonate (PFHxS; C6F13SO3-), and perfluorooctanoate (PFOA; C7F15CO2-) were detected in 175Expand

Role of plant biomass in the global environmental partitioning of chlorinated hydrocarbons
Plant biomass plays a significant role in the global environmental partitioning phenomena and plants are good indicators of tropospheric contamination levels by chlorinated hydrocarbons. In theExpand

Polychloronaphthalenes and other dioxin-like compounds in Arctic and Antarctic marine food webs.
Here we report accumulation patterns of polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), andExpand

Occurrence of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and their enantiomeric signatures, and concentrations of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in the Adélie penguin food web, Antarctica.
Concentrations and enantiomeric signatures of organochlorine pesticides were determined in Antarctic krill, emerald rockcod and Adélie penguin from the Ross Sea, Antarctica. HCB and DDTs wereExpand

Congener profile and toxicity assessment of polychlorinated biphenyls in dolphins, sharks and tuna collected from Italian coastal waters
Abstract Bottlenose and Risso's dolphins found dead along the Italian coast in 1992 were analysed for the presence of PCB isomers and DDT. High concentrations of PCBs (90–1400 μg/g wet wt) wereExpand

Elevated cadmium accumulation in marine organisms from Terra Nova Bay (Antarctica)
As a contribution towards identification of the principal environmental factors involved in cadmium accumulation in Antarctic marine organisms and the establishment of a baseline near the ItalianExpand

Assumption and elimination of trace elements in Adélie penguins from Antarctica: a preliminary study.
The concentration and distribution of some trace elements were determined in stomach contents, excreta and feathers of Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) breeding at Edmonson Point (Terra NovaExpand

Heavy metals and selenium in stranded dolphins of the northern Tyrrhenian (NW Mediterranean).
Heavy metal (Hg, Cd, Pb and Zn) and selenium levels were determined in striped (Stenella coeruleoalba) and bottle-nosed dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) stranded along the coast of Tuscany and Latium,Expand
