In an effort to assess potential ecological hazards to amphibian species in selected regions within New Hampshire, the traditional Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX), a 14-/21 day tail resorption thyroid disruption assay and >30 day limb development tests were conducted with representative surface water and sediment samples. Two separate sets of samples collected from five sites were evaluated. The primary objectives of the study were to determine if samples were capable of… CONTINUE READING
