    ..We found evidence to suggest shifts in diets of the two species, as a function of prey availability, thus altering their exposure profiles. However, we found no evidence to suggest they respond differently to mercury exposure...

    ..P450 protein activity was higher in adult Forster's terns than Caspian terns, higher in Central South Bay than in Lower South Bay, and higher in adult Forster's terns than in chicks...

    Environ Toxicol Chem 29:1788-94. 2010
    ..We hypothesize that malpositioning of avian embryos may be one reason for mercury-related hatching failure that occurs late in incubation, but further research is needed to elucidate this potential mechanism...
