Investigation of levels of endocrine disrupting compounds in the Antarctic environment and food chain
Entry ID: K068_2009_2010_NZ_1

Abstract: The study aims to quantify selected emerging Endocrine Disrupting Compounds (EDCs) in sewage, and waters from Antarctica, and to study levels of EDCs in the food chain, including invertebrates, fish, penguins and seals. The aim is to determine whether EDCs are present at biologically active levels in Antarctic ecosystems, and then to model the potential effects upon key members of the ecosystem. ... View entire text
