Haematological studies of fresh water fish, Clarias batrachus (L.) exposed to mercuric chloride
The results are statistically significant at P< 0.05 and the number of white blood cells (WBC) increased in mercuric chloride treated fish and Hb content decreased when compared to the control.
Levels of Organochlorine Pesticide Residues in Blood Plasma of Various Species of Birds from India
The presence of residues in birds over the years (2005–2007) indicates continued exposure to organochlorine compounds, and continuous monitoring is recommended to facilitate the early identification of risks to the survival of a species.
Organochlorine Pesticide Residues in Eggs and Tissues of House Sparrow, Passer domesticus, from Tamil Nadu, India
Although OCPs levels detected in tissues are not indicative of toxicity, continuous monitoring is recommended and continuous monitoring of eggs and tissues is recommended.
Organochlorine Pesticide Residues in Inland Wetland Fishes of Karnataka, India and Their Implications on Human Dietary Intake
The calculated daily dietary intake of OCPs in all the species examined was lower than the maximum acceptable dietary intake (ADI) limits prescribed for human consumption, however, continuous monitoring is recommended to facilitate the early identification of risks.
