Abstract This study evaluated ecological health, using various biomarkers and bioindicators, of pale chub (Zacco platypus) as a sentinel species, in Daejeon Stream, South Korea, during April–May 2011. The biomarkers and bioindicators were compared among three sites of control: Reference (Cz), transition (Tz), and the urban zones (Uz); and the 7-Ethoxyresorufin-O-deethylase (EROD) activity, DNA damage, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity, and vitellogenin (VTG) concentrations were more… CONTINUE READING
