Biomarkers of effects of hypoxia and oil-shale contaminated sediments in laboratory-exposed gibel carp (Carassius auratus gibelio).
We report a study on the combined effects of contaminated sediment and hypoxia on the physiology of gibel carp (Carssius auratus gibelio). We conducted a laboratory exposure study that involved exposure to polluted sediments from oil-shale industries (River Purtse) and sediments from a relatively cl...
The eggshell features and clutch viability of the broad-snouted caiman (Caiman latirostris) are associated with the egg burden of organochlo...
Our findings highlight another potential negative impact of current and past use of OCCs on wildlife species. © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved....
Toxicity assessments with Daphnia magna of Guadipyr, a new neonicotinoid insecticide and studies of its effect on acetylcholinesterase (AChE...
These results demonstrated that guadipyr can induce notable negative ecotoxicological impacts on the aquatic system in long-term exposure at a sub-lethal dose. Further research in environmental behaviors is needed to regulate guadipyr use in the future. © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved....
Effects of heavy metal accumulation on some reproductive characters in Armadillidium granulatum Brandt (Crustacea, Isopoda, Oniscidea).
The impact of heavy metal bioaccumulation on reproduction of the isopod Armadillidium granulatum was studied by exposing the animals to food contaminated with various sub-lethal concentrations of cadmium, lead and zinc salts over a period of three weeks. The analysis carried out by atomic absorption...
Small cetaceans found stranded or accidentally captured in southeastern Brazil: bioindicators of essential and non-essential trace elements ...
Essential (Cu, Mn, Se and Zn) and non-essential (Cd and Hg) elements were analyzed in the hepatic tissue of 22 individuals of seven different species of small cetaceans (Feresa attenuata; Orcinus orca; Pontoporia blainvillei; Sotalia guianensis; Stenella frontalis; Steno bredanensis; Tursiops trunca...
A molecular study on bacterial resistance to arsenic-toxicity in surface and underground waters of Latium (Italy).
We describe new bacteria that are resistant to arsenic toxicity and were isolated from the surface waters of Lake Vico and the Sacco River, two groundwater systems in Latium, as well as from bottled natural mineral water from the same region. The 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis for the As-resistant...
Seasonal variation of phytoplankton nutrient limitation in Lake Taihu, China: a monthly study from year 2011 to 2012.
Lake Taihu is the third largest freshwater lake in China with severe eutrophication issues. However, it remains ambiguous how its phytoplankton growth is limited by various nutrients in different seasons. A series of bottle-enrichment assays in Meiliang Bay was thus performed once a month from July,...
Seasonal and PAH impact on DNA strand-break levels in gills of transplanted zebra mussels.
Genotoxicity endpoints are useful tools to biomonitor the physicochemical and biological quality of aquatic ecosystems. A caging study on the freshwater bivalve Dreissena polymorpha was planned to run over four seasons in the Seine River basin in order to assess whether DNA damage measured in transp...
Health risk assessment and multivariate apportionment of trace metals in wild leafy vegetables from Lesser Himalayas, Pakistan.
Fresh wild leafy vegetables and related soil samples were collected from Lesser Himalayas, Pakistan to evaluate the trace metal levels and related health risk to the consumers. The samples were prepared by acid digestion, followed by quantification of selected trace metals (Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, Cr, Cd an...
Different responses of abalone Haliotis discus hannai to waterborne and dietary-borne copper and zincexposure.
To investigate the potential influence of the contamination of copper (Cu) or zinc (Zn), the abalone Haliotis discus hannai was exposed to waterborne or macroalgae-borne Cu or Zn over a period of 8weeks. Both Cu and Zn were effectively accumulated by the abalones from water or macroalgae, but their...
