In 1991 and 1992 we determined the levels of metals, arsenic, boron, and selenium in the Neosho River drainage in southeastern Kansas, the primary habitat for the threatened Neosho madtom (Noturus placidus). We evaluated concentrations in sediments, mussels (Quadrula pustulosa and Q. metanevra), and fish(Percina phoxocephala, Cyprinus carpio,and Ictiobus bubalus) from three sites on theNeosho River and one site on the Cottonwood River. We also evaluated contaminant concentrations in C. carpio… 
A Screening-Level Assessment of Lead, Cadmium, and Zinc in Fish and Crayfish from Northeastern Oklahoma, USA
Based on the results of this and previous studies, the human consumption of carp and crayfish could be restricted based on current criteria for lead, cadmium, and zinc, and the consumption of channel catfishcould be restricted due to lead.
Arsenic accumulation in a freshwater fish living in a contaminated river of Corsica, France.
The results indicated a strong As contamination in fish collected downstream from the mine, and Bioaccumulation occurred preferentially in the gills, operculum, and liver.
Arsenic Content in Tissues of Fish from the River Elbe
The aim of the study was to evaluate arsenic content in tissues of fish caught in selected localities along the River Elbe and its tributary the Vltava in 1999, 2002 and 2003, and in pools of the River elbe in 2000.
In this study, sediment-bound heavy metal levels of Enne and Porsuk Dam Lakes and their bioaccumulation factors (BAFs) to various tissues (Muscle, skin, gill, liver and intestine) of common carp (
The comparison of heavy metal accumulation ratios of some fish species in Enne Dame Lake (Kütahya/Turkey)
Although the heavy metal accumulation levels for the muscle were generally lower than other tissues, there were some exceptions and Cd level in the muscle of C. carassius was higher than the permissible limit stated by Turkish legislation, FAO and WHO.
The determination of heavy metal accumulation ratios in muscle, skin and gills of some migratory fish species by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) in Beymelek Lagoon (Antalya/Turkey)
Abstract In this study, copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), manganese (Mn), iron (Fe), magnesium (mg), nickel (Ni), chrome (Cr), cobalt (Co) and boron (B) accumulation ratios of muscle, skin and gill of Striped
Diet and behavior of the Saint-Césaire Neanderthal inferred from biogeochemical data inversion.
The results indicate that the percentage of plants in the Neanderthal's diet must have been close to zero for realistic Sr and Ba impoverishment between diet and hydroxylapatite, and supports the hypothesis that this Neanderthal carried the foodstuffs back to the Saint-Césaire shelter before their consumption.
Temporal and source assessments of organic and elemental carbon at sites in the northern South African interior
Particulate matter (PM) can affect climate, air quality, human health, acid deposition and visibility, and contain a significant fraction of organic (OC) and elemental carbon (EC). Southern Africa is
Genetic Structure and Diversity of the Endemic Carolina Madtom and Conservation Implications
The genetic structure of the Carolina Madtom Noturus furiosus is not studied, and given recent population declines in both basins, identification of remaining genetic diversity within the species is vital for informing conservation efforts.
Toxicological profile for selenium
This edition supersedes any previously released draft or final profile for selenium and is a unique compilation of toxicological information on a given hazardous substance.


Concentrations of Cd, Cu, Mn, Pb and Zn in fishes in a highly organic softwater pond
Analysis of concentration factors from pond water to whole stocked bluegill indicated that Pb in this system was less available to fish than in hardwater lakes, while Cd in the pond was as available toFish as in harder waters.

At the new Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge in Linn County, Kansas, and Bates County, Missouri, USA, we evaluated long-lived contaminants before acquisition of the land for the refuge. We

Cadmium bioaccumulation in carp (Cyprinus carpio) tissues during long-term high exposure: analysis by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry.
The reported data indicate that Cadmium exposure results in significant cadmium uptake, but the pattern of this uptake varies with the organ, and the high contamination levels reached suggest that such muscle would be unsuitable for human consumption.
Mercury, arsenic, and cadmium in fish, water, and sediment of American Falls Reservoir, Idaho, 1974.
: Mercury and cadmium were found in fish, water, and sediment of American Falls Reservoir (AFR), Idaho. Mercury and cadmium levels in some fish exceeded human health standards set by the Food and

Samples of soils or other regoliths, taken at a depth of approximately 20 cm from locations about 80 km apart throughout the conterminous United States, were analyzed for their content of elements.
