Fenvalerate hazards to fish, wildlife, and invertebrates : a synoptic review by Ronald Eisler( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diflubenzuron (1-(4-chlorophenyl)-3-(2,6-difluorobenzoyl)urea), also known as dimilin, is a potent broad-spectrum insect growth regulator that interferes with chitin synthesis at time of molting and is effective in controlling immature stages of insects. Diflubenzuron was approved for domestic use in 1976 to control gypsy moth (Lyrnantria dispar), and in 1979 against the cotton boll weevil (Anthonamus grandis). By 1989 this compound was also registered for domestic use against mosquitos, forest Lepidoptera, mushroom flies, and leaf-eating insect pests of citrus, woody ornamentals, vegetables, and fruit. Diflubenzuron seldom persists for more than a few days in soil and water. When used properly in forest management, it is unlikely to be leached into ground water from the application site. Degradation in water and soil is most rapid when small particle formulations are applied; microorganisms are abundant; and at elevated pH, temperature, and organic loading. Chemical and biological processes initially yield 2,6-difluorobenzoic acid and 4-chlorophenylurea. Soil degradation processes and plant and animal metabolism involve further conversion of these compounds to 2,6-difluorobenzamide and 4-chloroanaline. Ultimately, the end products are either conjugated into mostly water soluble products or biologically methylated

Planar PCB hazards to fish, wildlife, and invertebrates : a synoptic review by Ronald Eisler( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological and toxicological aspects of polychiorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the environment are reviewed with emphasis on biologically active congeners and fish and wildlife. Subtopics include sources and uses, chemical and biochemical properties, concentrations in field collections, lethal and sublethal effects, and recommendations for the protection of sensitive resources. All production of PCBs in the United States ceased in 1977. In this report we summarize the recent technical literature on PCB hazards to fishery and wild-life resources, and place special emphasis on the biologically active planar PCBs. This report is part of a continuing series of brief reviews prepared in response to requests for information from environmental specialists of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other requestors

Silver hazards to fish, wildlife, and invertebrates : a synoptic review by Ronald Eisler( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological and toxicological aspects of silver (Ag) and silver salts in the environment are briefly summarized with an emphasis on natural resources. Elevated silver concentrations in biota occur in the vicinities of sewage outfalls, electroplating plants, mine waste sites, and silver-iodide seeded areas; in the United States, the photography industry is the major source of anthropogenic silver discharges into the biosphere. Silver and its compounds are not known to be mutagenic, teratogenic, or carcinogenic. Under normal routes of exposure, silver does not pose serious environmental health problems to humans at less than 50 ug total Ag/L drinking water or 10 ug total Ag/m3 air. Free silver ion, however, was lethal to representative species of sensitive aquatic plants, invertebrates, and teleosts at nominal water concentrations of 1.2 to 4.9 ug/L; sublethal effects were significant between 0.17 and 0.6 ug/L. Silver was harmful to poultry at concentrations as low as 1.8 mg total Ag/kg whole egg fresh weight by way of injection, 100 mg total Ag/L in drinking water, or 200 mg total Ag/kg in diets; sensitive mammals were adversely affected at total silver concentrations as low as 250 ug/L in drinking water, 6 mg/kg in diets, or 13.9 mg/kg whole body

Mercury hazards to living organisms by Ronald Eisler( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Complex and ever changing in its forms and functions, the element mercury follows a convoluted course through the environment and up the food chain. The process is complicated further by the fact that the difference between tolerable natural background levels and harmful effects in the environment is exceptionally small and still not completely understood. Written by recognized national and international authority on chemical risk assessment, Ronald Eisler, "Mercury Hazards to Living Organisms" explores the biological, physical, and chemical properties of mercury and its compounds. Rich in facts and information, the book provides a fundamental look at the issues. A synthesis of current scientific reviews, the book documents the significance of mercury concentrations in abiotic materials, plants, invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, elasmobranch, fishes, and birds, as well as humans and other mammals. The author reviews historical and current uses and sources of mercury along with its physical, chemical, biological, and biochemical properties. He summarizes mercury transport and speciation processes and analytical techniques for mercury measurement.; The book includes coverage of lethality to wildlife, domestic animals, and humans; administration routes and their effects; and sublethal effects such as cancers, birth defects, and chromosomal aberrations
Eisler's encyclopedia of environmentally hazardous priority chemicals by Ronald Eisler( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thousands of inorganic and organic chemicals and their metabolites enter the biosphere daily as a direct result of human activities. Many of these chemicals have serious consequences on sensitive species of natural resources, crops, livestock, and public health. The most hazardous of these were identified by a panel of environmental specialists from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; these chemicals are the focus of this encyclopedia. For each priority group of chemicals, information is presented on sources, uses, physical and chemical properties, tissue concentrations in field collections and their significance, lethal and sublethal effects under controlled conditions. This includes effects on survival, growth, reproduction, metabolism, carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, and mutagenicity - and proposed regulatory criteria for the protection of sensitive natural resources, crops, livestock, and human health. Taxonomic groups of natural resources covered include terrestrial and aquatic plants and invertebrates, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. * The only product that centers on the most hazardous environmental chemicals to sensitive natural resources * The only single volume compendium on the subject, allowing ease in consulting * Written by a noted national and international authority on chemical risk assessment to living organisms

Compendium of trace metals and marine biota by Ronald Eisler( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each book has two main goals 1. Determine baseline concentrations of metals and metalloids in tissues of representative field populations of estuarine coastal, and open ocean organisms (Book 1:algae and macrophytes, protists, sponges, coelenterates, molluscs, crustaceans, insects, chaetognaths, annelids, echinoderms, and tunicates) (Book 2: elasmobranchs, fishes, reptiles, birds, mammals) and their significance to organism health and to the health of their consumers. 2. Synthesize existing information on biological, chemical, and physical factors known to modify uptake, retention, and translocation of each element under field and laboratory conditions. Recognition of the importance of these modifiers and their accompanying interactions is essential to the understanding of metals kinetics in marine systems and to the interpretation of baseline residue data. Summarizes the available world literature on trace metal and metalloid concentrations in tissues of representative field populations Indicates the significance to organism health and to their consumers Synthesizes selected information on biological, chemical, and physical factors known to modify uptake, retention, and translocation of each element
