    Environ Pollut 146:380-91. 2007
    ..The difference in vitality loss was related to the different ecophysiology of the species, because concentrations of phytotoxic pollutants were low during exposure. Critical notes on the analytical techniques are also given...

    Mauro Tretiach
    Dipartimento di Scienze della Vita, Universita degli Studi di Trieste, I 34127 Trieste, Italy
    Environ Sci Technol 46:6851-9. 2012
    ..The new protocol is simple, the field equipment cheap, and the negative effects associated with standard biocide treatments are absent...

    Environ Monit Assess 175:589-600. 2011
    ..It was concluded that, although the immediate risk for the population living close to the incinerator is low, long-term hazard due to Hg accumulation in the surrounding environment should be seriously taken into account...
