Effects of Sublethal Copper Concentrations on Gills of White Shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei, Boone 1931).
The objective of this study was to measure the copper (Cu) concentration in gills of juveniles Litopenaeus vannamei after exposure to Cu at sublethal concentrations, and to evaluate its effect upon the structure of gill tissue. The Cu concentration in gills of control shrimp was 0.075 mg/kg. Copper...
Organochlorine Compound Residues in Muscle of Wild Boar (Sus scrofa L.) and Red Deer (Cervus elaphus L.): Effects of Age and Sex.
Twenty-six organochlorine pesticides and 7 polychlorinated biphenyls were measured in muscle of wild boar and red deer from the Czech Republic. The concentration of DDT and its metabolites was higher (p < 0.01) in red deer than...
The study on air pollution with nickel and vanadium in Croatia by using moss biomonitoring and ICP-AES.
Moss samples were collected from 121 sampling sites all over Croatia during the summer and autumn of 2010. They were totally digested by using microwave digestion system and analysed by using atomic emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-AES). Descriptive statistics and maps of d...
Geno- and cyto-toxicity in free-living rodent Mus spretus exposed to simulated onshore oil spill.
These results point to the value of this rodent in serving as a sentinel species for the monitoring and prediction of environmental hazards....
Molecular Characterization of 2-Chlorobiphenyl Degrading Stenotrophomonas maltophilia GS-103.
The catabolic potential of transformer oil contaminated soil bacteria in aerobic degradation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) were assessed. Transformer oil contaminated soil sample was subjected to microcosm enrichment experiments (PAS medium/biphenyl as sole carbon source). PCB-degrading activit...
Calibration and field application of chemcatcher(®) passive samplers for detecting amitrole residues in agricultural drain waters.
A passive sampler device suitable for monitoring of residues of the hydrophilic ionic herbicide amitrole in irrigation waterways was developed. Uptake of amitrole on styrenedivinylbenzene-reverse phase sulfonated Empore™ disks was linear and proportional to its water concentration over the range of...
Studies on organochlorine pesticide residue in fishes from the Densu river basin, Ghana.
The study was carried out to determine the levels of organochlorine pesticide residue in five fish species Chrysichthys nigrodigitatus, Hepsetus odoe, Tilapia zilli, Heterotis niloticus and Oreochromis niloticus from the Densu river basin (Weija) in Ghana. The fishes sampled from the Weija fish land...
Source apportionment of volatile organic compounds in Tehran, Iran.
Identifying the sources of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is key issue to reducing ground-level ozone and PAN. A multivariate receptor model (Unmix) was used for the determination of the contributions of VOCs sources in Tehran-Iran. Concentrations of ambient C2-C10 VOCs were measured continuously...
Anthropogenic contamination of metals in sediments of the santa rosalía harbor, baja california peninsula.
To know the environment impact on a harbor of the Santa Rosalía port on the Baja California peninsula, the concentrations of metals (Cd, Co, Cu, Mn, Pb, U and Zn) in harbor sediments were determined for 13 stations and compared with their average upper Earth´s crust abundance. The mean enrichment fa...
Dissipation and Persistence of Flubendiamide and Thiacloprid in/on Tomato and Soil.
Flubendiamide, a phthalic acid diamide protects the plants against a broad range of economically important lepidopterus pests and thiacloprid a second generation neonicotinoid is effective against the sucking insects, white flies and jassids. To estimate the residues of flubendiamide and thiacloprid...
