Chemical tracers to asses diet and persistent organic pollutants in Antarctic type killer whales
Entry ID: ECA035

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set considers the PCBs, DDTs, CHLs, HCB and HCHs measured in blubber from Antarctic Type C killer whales and found that mean concentrations in all groups of POPs were significantly higher in adult males than in females. Type C whales had anyway the lowest mean concentrations for all groups of POPs, except for HCB. For example, the mean ΣPCB and ΣDDT concentrations in adult male Type C ... View entire text
