  1. 1. Sub-lethal Effects of Anthropogenic Contaminants on Aquatic Invertebrates

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Warren Kunce; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ecotoxicology; sub-lethal; behavior; biomarkers; thermal tolerance; pesticides; pyrethroids; neonicotinoids; pharmaceuticals; antihistamines; microplastics; mixtures; freshwater; invertebrates; chironomids; damselflies; snails; Biology with specialization in Animal Conservation; Biologi med inriktning mot zoologisk bevarandebiologi;

    Abstract : Anthropogenic contaminants are considered to play a substantial role in the decline of freshwater invertebrate diversity. Sub-lethal effects of many of these contaminants on behaviour and life-history traits of aquatic invertebrates may contribute to their decline. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental Pesticide Exposure and Neurobehavioral Effects among Children of Nicaraguan Agricultural Workers

  3. 3. Developmental neurotoxicity of persistent and non-persistent pollutants Behavioral and neurochemical assessments of a perfluorinated compound, pesticides and interaction effects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Iwa Lee; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Brain; Neonatal; Mixtures; Cholinergic system; Organochlorines; Pyrethroids; Organophosphates; Carbamates; Insecticides; PFCs; PFAAs; PFHxS; Endosulfan; Cypermethrin; Chlorpyrifos; Carbaryl; Biology with specialization in Environmental Toxicology; Biologi med inriktning mot miljötoxikologi;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis was to investigate developmental neurotoxic effects of different persistent and non-persistent environmental pollutants, alone or in binary mixtures, when exposure occurs during a critical period of brain development, in mice. The compounds investigated included a perfluorinated compound, perfluorohexane sulphonate (PFHxS), and four different pesticides, endosulfan, cypermethrin, chlorpyrifos and carbaryl. READ MORE

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mnesampela privata; semiochemicals; pheromones; kairomones; 3Z; 6Z; 9Z -3; 6; 9-nonadecatriene; 3Z; 6Z; 9Z -3; 6; 9-heneicosatriene; carrot psyllid; Trioza apicalis; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The Autumn gum moth, Mnesampela privata (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) is an endemic Australian moth whose larvae feed upon species of Eucalyptus. The moths favorite host plants are E. globulus and E. nitens which are the most important species used in commercial plantations of the Australian pulpwood industry. READ MORE

  5. 5. Semipermeable membrane devices in monitoring of organic pollutants in the aquatic environment

    University dissertation from Department of Ecology, Lund University

    Author : Darius Sabaliunas; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; effect studies; environmental monitoring; organic pollutants; bioconcentration; passive samplers; Semipermeable membrane devices; SPMDs; toxicity; genotoxicity; bioassays; Ecology; Ekologi;

    Abstract : Semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) are passive samplers capable of concentrating hydrophobic chemicals from water, sediments, soil and air. They consist of layflat polymeric membrane such as polyethylene containing a thin film of synthetic lipid such as triolein. READ MORE
