Bioaccumulation of Brominated Flame Retardants, Currently Used Pesticides, and emerging metal trends in the Vegetation-Caribou-Wolf Food Chain
Principal Investigator: Katz, Sharon
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of this study are: (a) To determine whether brominated flame retardants (BFRs), current use pesticides (CUPs), perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), and mercury bioaccumulate using the vegetation-caribou-wolf food chain and the Bathurst caribou herd as a model; (b) To explore possible sources of lead contamination in the Bathurst herd caribou; (c) To elucidate the pathway of lead uptake ...
