  1. Bt-cotton and secondary pests

    International Journal of Biotechnology 10(2-3):113 (2008)

    Bt-cotton seed has been effective to control the damage of bollworm in Chinese cotton production since 1999, reducing the need for pesticides and increasing incomes of Chinese farmers. Field data collected in 2004 indicates that these benefits have been eroded by increasing the use of pesticides aime...
  2. An exploratory study of sustainable apparel retailers on the internet

    International Journal of Electronic Marketing a... 5(2):95 (2012)

    The purpose of this exploratory study was to identify the general characteristics of online retailers selling sustainable apparel and examine their sustainability initiatives throughout the supply chain. Hart's (1995) natural resource–based view (N–RBV) was used in this study as a foundational fr...
  3. Treatment of contaminated water with pesticides via adsorption

    International Journal of Environmental Technolo... 6(5):515 (2006)

    Static adsorption experiments of pesticides (alachlor, trifluralin and prometryn) on amberlite XAD-4 were carried out at pH 5. The effect of ionic strength (0.01–2 M) on the pesticides adsorption was also investigated. This effect is more pronounced for the adsorption of more polar molecules (alach...
  4. Healthy environments for nurses, patients, and the communities where we live. FAU - Miller-Boyle, Dianne

    The Oklahoma nurse 50(4):15 (2005) PMID 16372466

  5. Effects of nickel exposure and acute pesticide intoxication on acetylcholinesterase, catalase and glutathione S-transferase activity and glu...

    International Journal of Environment and Pollution 40(4):380 (2010)

    The activity of detoxifying enzymes and glucose absorption were measured in the digestive tract of Helix aspersa exposed to nickel. Nickel decreased CAT activity and, in the lower concentration, inhibited intestinal absorption of glucose. Elevated AChE activity and unchanged GST activity indicate div...
  6. Residues of organophosphorus pesticides in different food commodities in Slovenia, 1997?1998

    International Journal of Environment and Pollution 31(1-2):142 (2007)

    During the period 1997?1998, a total of 1237 samples of different food commodities were analysed for residues of organophosphorus pesticides in Slovenia. The domestic and imported commodities tested included fruits, vegetables, cereals, alcoholic drinks and food of animal origin such as liver, fish,...
  7. Managing pesticide risks for non-target ecosystems with pesticide risk indicators: a multi-criteria approach

    International Journal of Environmental Technolo... 6(1-2):141 (2006)

    We apply some recently developed pesticide risk indices and test their potential for management purposes. A pilot approach is proposed, which explores pesticide worst-case hazard scenarios at different space-time scales by means of a set of five ecotoxicological risk indices. The results are then in...
  8. Genotoxic effects of occupational exposure in the peripheral blood lymphocytes of pesticide preparing workers in Hungary.

    Acta Medica (Hungary) 49(1-2):79 (1992) PMID 1296189

    Venous blood samples of 240 donors including 33 industrial and 60 historical controls were investigated in order to assess the genotoxic risk of pesticide preparing workers manufacturing monochlorinated benzene in Hungary. Mutation frequencies were determined in the hypoxanthine-(guanine)-phosphorib...
  9. Threats and human influence on coastal ecosystem of Southern India

    Interdisciplinary Environmental Review 11(4):322 (2010)

    We conducted an intensive study of Aghanashini estuary for water quality and fish diversity in west coast of India. Coastal ecosystems are impacted by many stressors and are continually subjected to threats from multiple stresses imposed mostly by human activities predominantly as a result of increa...
  10. Development of new methods to assess invertebrate immunology and immunotoxicology in aquaculture: oysters and lobsters as examples

    International Journal of Environment and Pollution 33(4):365 (2008)

    We developed assays to assess immune functions and their susceptibility to environmental conditions or toxicants. Flow cytometry allowed the rapid and quantitative analysis of oyster and lobster cell subpopulations and their functions (phagocytosis, peroxide production, natural killer cell-like acti...
