  • Common terns (Sterna hirundo) and roseate terns (Sterna dougallii) breed on Bird Island, Massachusetts, USA, near a Superfund site highly contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Observations of skewed sex ratios and female–female pairings among endangered roseate terns (Nisbet and Hatch (1999) Ibis141, 307) suggested the possibility of contaminant-related endocrine disruption in these birds and prompted investigation of common terns as a surrogate species. In 1993 and 1994, 60–90… CONTINUE READING
