This vast utilization of fish should also be regarded as a sign of primary concern of genetic ecotoxicologists over the health status of aquatic ecosystems.
It is of interest for ecotoxicologists to understand how physiological parameters of this potential sentinel species may be modulated by natural factors other than chemicals; in parallel, it is of interest for ecologists to have more information about the modulation of hemocyte physiological responses by nutritional conditions in an invasive freshwater bivalve species.
Authors collaborated with researchers and regulators to develop the criteria, relied on previously published reports, drew from their own professional experiences, and received additional suggestions from ecotoxicologists from Brixham Environmental Laboratories/AstraZeneca and researchers within the MistraPharma research program.
Cherr and his fellow researchers, including leading oceanographers, ecotoxicologists, and ecologists, conclude that scientists need more time to study how to contain damage from such accidents, especially given the trend to seek new sources of oil in off-shore regions around the U.
However, for the proposed battery Daphnia is suggested as a test more recognized among ecotoxicologists.
Such species are even more vulnerable to thermal stress when their environment is polluted, a pair of ecotoxicologists finds.
Ecotoxicologists Till Luckenbach and David Epel tested the inhibitory effect of six synthetic musks by exposing gills from the marine mussel, Mytilus californianus, to low concentrations of the compounds for two hours.
In this context, some ecotoxicologists have noted that in this region known for its textile industry, an accompanying release of organic environmental pollutants (e.
Fortunately, there are still soil ecologists and ecotoxicologists who take up this challenge.
Few scientists had considered biological means of transport, yet ecotoxicologists now report that much of the DOT, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and other persistent organic chemicals in one seemingly pristine lake arrived via spawning salmon.
Ecotoxicologists study an organism's response to toxicants in terms of "scope for growth" (assimilation rate less respiration rate), but this is seldom treated dynamically.
The e-book provides an intriguing insight into the molecular mechanisms involved in organotin toxicology thus serving as a useful reference to biochemists, biologists, ecotoxicologists and life science students.
