Second generation anticoagulant rodenticides in tawny owls (Strix aluco) from Great Britain.
Secondary exposure of vertebrate predators to second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) is widespread in Britain. Tawny owl (Strix aluco) populations in the UK are thought to have declinedExpand

Factors influencing the national distribution of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and polychlorinated biphenyls in British soils.
The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) naphthalene, acenaphthylene, acenaphthene, fluorene, fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[a]anthracene, chrysene, benzo[b]fluoranthene, benzo[k]fluoranthene,Expand

Low accessibility and chemical activity of PAHs restrict bioremediation and risk of exposure in a manufactured gas plant soil.
Composting of manufactured gas plant soil by a commercial enterprise had removed most of its polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), but concentrations remained above regulatory threshold levels.Expand

Ecological evidence links adverse biological effects to pesticide and metal contamination in an urban Australian watershed
Summary: Aquatic ecosystems near urban areas are often ecologically impaired, but causative factors are rarely identified. Effects may be revealed by considering multiple lines of evidence atExpand

Genes involved in cysteine metabolism of Chironomus tepperi are regulated differently by copper and by cadmium.
Freshwater invertebrates are often exposed to metal contamination, and changes in gene expression patterns can help understand mechanisms underlying toxicity and act as pollutant-specific biomarkers.Expand

A multi-platform metabolomics approach demonstrates changes in energy metabolism and the transsulfuration pathway in Chironomus tepperi following exposure to zinc.
Measuring biological responses in resident biota is a commonly used approach to monitoring polluted habitats. The challenge is to choose sensitive and, ideally, stressor-specific endpoints thatExpand

Municipal wastewater effluent licensing: A global perspective and recommendations for best practice.
Advances in wastewater treatment have greatly improved the quality of municipal wastewater effluents in many parts of the world, but despite this, treated wastewaters can still pose a risk to theExpand

Comparing the impacts of sediment-bound bifenthrin on aquatic macroinvertebrates in laboratory bioassays and field microcosms.
We conducted two laboratory bioassays and two field microcosm exposures with bifenthrin (a synthetic pyrethroid) in order to evaluate the capacity of single-species laboratory bioassays to predictExpand

The use of respiratory enzymes as biomarkers of petroleum hydrocarbon exposure in Mytilus edulis planulatus.
The effect of exposure to petroleum hydrocarbons via the water column and through contaminated sediment upon changes in respiratory enzymes in the common mussel (Mytilus edulis planulatus) wasExpand

Effects of the boscalid fungicide Filan® on the marine amphipod Allorchestes compressa at environmentally relevant concentrations.
Fungicides are widely used in agriculture to control fungal diseases. After application, fungicides can be transported offsite to surface and groundwater and ultimately enter estuarine and marineExpand
