    Jeffrey S Levinton
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York 11794, USA
    Environ Sci Technol 40:7597-601. 2006
    ..This unique study demonstrates the efficacy of a major dredging cleanup and quantifies the spatial and temporal impact of the cleanup. It demonstrates that cleanup of a point source can have dramatic effects over large spatial scales...

    Environ Toxicol Chem 27:1691-7. 2008
    ..The decline of mercury over three decades corresponds to a reduction of various inputs in the region. The temporal and geographic pattern of mercury in sediments corresponds to the geographic trend of mercury in fish...
