Background and Purpose: A lot has been written about the effects of phenol on marine and freshwater life but not many experiments deal with histopathological changes, especially in invertebrates. It is known that absorption of phenol by aquatic species presumably occurs through the skin or gills. Therefore, the aim of our study was to determine the normal gill structure and the possible histopathological changes induced by phenol intoxication on the gill of freshwater snail Āmphimelania… Expand

Evaluations of Organ Tissues from Actinonaias pectorosa Collected During a Mussel Die-Off in 2016 at Kyles Ford, Clinch River, Tennessee
TLDR
Organ tissues from 10 pheasantshells Actinonaias pectorosa were collected from Kyles Ford, TN, and revealed numerous pervasive tissue lesions in the mussels, which led to starvation-like conditions due to unidentified environmental stressors. Expand
Effects of Coal Particles in Aquatic Sediments on Organ Tissues of Rainbow Mussels Villosa iris (Unionidae)
TLDR
Significantly higher fractions of lipofuscin, an insoluble lipid peroxidation byproduct that can be related to contaminant exposure, in kidney diverticula of the coal-exposed mussels suggested that unidentified contaminants were present in the water. Expand
Assessment of growth, survival, and organ tissues of caged mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae) in a river-scape influenced by coal mining in the southeastern USA.
TLDR
These results suggest that conditions continue to exist in the zone of decline that promote impacts to mussels that are at least partially associated with low concentration coal-related contaminants. Expand
Assessment of Mussel Declines in the Clinch and North Fork Holston Rivers Using Histological Evaluations of Vital Organs
TLDR
The survival, growth and histological results indicated that there are continuing impacts to mussels in the CR zone of decline (ZD), and research investigating impacts to the ZD and methods to improve water quality in this zone are needed. Expand
Biomarkers and Integrated Environmental Risk Assessment: Are There More Questions Than Answers?
Abstract The introduction of the European Commission's Water Framework Directive (WFD; 2000/60/EC) established a new era in environmental risk assessment. In addition to incorporating the complianceExpand
Biomarkers and integrated environmental risk assessment: are there more questions than answers?
TLDR
How, by taking a weight-of-evidence approach, biomarkers may be successfully incorporated within environmental risk assessment frameworks such as the WFD is shown. Expand
