STP Avian and Mammalian Wildlife Toxicology addresses the important wildlife toxicology problems such as: selection of surrogate species; predicting toxicity; matching concentrations of chemicals in various media with concentration in organisms, which cause various toxicological effects or responses.

Wildlife toxicology is the study of the effects of environmental contaminants on the reproduction, health, and wellbeing of wildlife. Some of the initial concern and impetus of the modern environmental movement was the result of the perceived impact of environmental chemicals to by: 2. Endocrine Toxicology - CRC Press Book With contributions by international experts in academia, chemical manufacturing, government research laboratories, regulatory agencies, and private consulting, this guide explores the potentially damaging influence of environmental agents on the endocrine system. Wildlife Toxicity Assessments for Chemicals of Military Concern is a compendium of chemical-specific toxicity information with discussions on the rationale and development of Wildlife Toxicity Reference Values (TRVs) intended for use on terrestrial wildlife for risk assessment applications. Substances covered include military-related chemicals including explosives, propellants, pesticides and.

The variability in toxic response of Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) to a standardized 5-day subacute feeding trial was studied while age was increased at weekly intervals from 1 to 21 days and at different times with day-old birds. The objectives were to identify the strengths and limitations of this subacute toxicity protocol and to provide possible explanations for.   Zhang R. et al. () Toxicity Reference Values and Tissue Residue Criteria for Protecting Avian Wildlife Exposed to Methylmercury in China. In: Whitacre D. (eds) Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology Volume Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (Continuation of Residue Reviews), vol Springer, New York, NYCited by: British workers showed that in rats the endrin metabolite, ketoendrin, was five times as toxic as endrin, was probably the ultimate cause of death, and was the main form of endrin in the brain at death. In cows and rabbits, however, they detected little of this metabolite. They found none in hens. We found no ketoendrin in birds of four orders that had been heavily exposed to or killed. @article{osti_, title = {Wildlife toxicity extrapolations: Allometry versus physiologically-based toxicokinetics}, author = {Fairbrother, A and Berg, M van den}, abstractNote = {Ecotoxicological assessments must rely on the extrapolation of toxicity data from a few indicator species to many species of concern.
