The concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and residues of organochlorine pesticides (HEOD and DDE) were measured in livers of otters ( Lutra lutra ) from different areas in Scotland. Whilst HEOD and DDE occurred at very low concentrations only, PCBs were present in high levels in...
Potted sugar maple seedlings were exposed to ozone and acidic precipitation in open-top chambers for three consecutive growing seasons. Periodic measurements of photosynthesis, dark respiration, through-fall and soil solution chemistry, and annual measurements of the weight of plant parts were...
Atmospheric concentrations and deposition of the major nitrogenous (N) compounds and their biological effects in California forests are reviewed. Climatic characteristics of California are summarized in light of their effects on pollutant accumulation and transport. Over large areas of the state...
Soils in forests sprayed aerially with DDT in 1958–1967 have been sampled for persistence of residues at intervals since then and most recently in 1993. Results of all the samples are presented and show persistence through 30 years, with evidence of decline of residue only in the third decade....
The Mn contamination arising from the combustion of MMT (methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl) in unleaded gasoline was assessed using snow collected at different distances 15, 25, 125 and 150 m from an expressway (Montreal, Canada) in February 1993. The snow samples were analyzed by...
Radioactivity of food products from semi-natural forest ecosystems can contribute appreciably to the radiological burden of the human population following a nuclear accident, as found after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. In the Czech Republic, radiocaesium radioactivity has been measured since...
In 1990, the Gulf War caused an unprecedented environmental catastrophe. More than 700 oil wells were set on fire, emitting thousands of tons of oxides of nitrogen, sulfur, soot and oil mist at high temperatures. The blazing oil wells and lakes were the major cause of environmental pollution,...
A gradual increase in fly ash concentrations in the normal field soil (0, 10, 20 … 100% volume/volume) increased the porosity, water holding capacity, pH, conductivity, C.E.C., sulphate, carbonate, bicarbonate, chloride, P, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, Cu, Zn and B. Fly ash additions to soil caused...
