Accurate identification of contaminant exposure to nontarget organisms involves understanding sources of variation associated with contaminant specific biomarkers. Cholinesterase (ChE) enzyme activity is the biochemical endpoint most often used to assess organism exposure to organophosphorus (OP) pesticides. A potential source of variation for this biomarker is sex, however, a generalized pattern of sex as a source of variation for avian ChE levels remains equivocal. In this study, sex… CONTINUE READING
