As a part of a project aiming to assess the potential toxicological effects of contaminants in aquatic ecosystems, the objective of this work was to determine the occurrence of several selected endocrine-disrupting compounds in water and sediment and to estimate the estrogenicity of the water. The study consisted of four sampling campaigns at seven sampling points in the lower Llobregat catchment area (NE Spain). Water and sediment samples underwent chemical target analysis for 19 steroid… CONTINUE READING
