Assessment of the impact of human activities on Trematomus bernacchii (a representative of the Antarctic fauna) by analysis of pollutants in bile and the amount of induction of a gene that produces a detoxifying enzyme
Entry ID: K014_1996_1997_NZ_1

Abstract: The impact of human activities in Antarctica on the local fauna was investigated by developing and applying biochemical and molecular genetic techniques to the assessment of the impact of by-products of human activities on a single fish species Trematomus bernacchii. Individual fish were collected from two sites; Winterquarters Bay next to McMurdo Station and Backdoor Bay, Cape Royds next to a ... View entire text
