Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: environmental pollution and bioremediation
 Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are widely distributed and relocated in the environment as a result of the incomplete combustion of organic matter. [1]
Minamata Disease: Methylmercury Poisoning in Japan Caused by Environmental Pollution
Minamata disease (M. d.) is methylmercury (MeHg) poisoning that occurred in humans who ingested fish and shellfish contaminated by MeHg discharged in waste water from a chemical plant (Chisso Co. Ltd.). [2]
Environmental parasitology: relevancy of parasites in monitoring environmental pollution
Parasites can interact with environmental pollution in different ways. On the one hand, parasites can interfere with established bioindication procedures owing to their effects on the physiology and behaviour of the host. [3]
New Data on the Ceratophyllum demersum L. as an Environmental Pollution Bioindicator
Aims: To perform an experimental analyses of the chemical composition and anatomic structure of polluted higher aquatic plants with the aid of combined physical methods of characterization by infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis to validate their use for environmental pollution bioindication. [4]
Model Prediction of Pollution Standard Index for Carbon Monoxide: A Tool for Environmental Impact Assessment
A model for predicting pollution standard index (PSI) for Carbon monoxide is presented. The modelis dependent on 8-hour mean traffic volume, wind speed and solar radiation. Field measurements of CO were carried out at two hour intervals for 5 days. [5]
