School of Biology, Ridley Building, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU, UK
Bull Environ Contam Toxicol 79:504-7. 2007..There was no difference in susceptibility to the additional stressors indicating that the differences between populations observed in earlier studies do not have a genetic basis...
- Evidence for between-generation effects in carabids exposed to heavy metals pollutionMalgorzata Lagisz
School of Biology, Newcastle University, Ridley Building, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU, UK
Ecotoxicology 17:59-66. 2008..Therefore, we conclude that although genetic adaptation has not occurred in the populations chronically exposed to toxic metal concentrations, there is evidence of intergenerational maternal effects of metal pollution...
- Changes in morphology of the ground beetle Pterostichus oblongopunctatus f. (Coleoptera; carabidae) from vicinities of a zinc and lead smelterMalgorzata Lagisz
School of Biology, Ridley Building, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, NE1 7RU, United Kingdom
Environ Toxicol Chem 27:1744-7. 2008..The decrease in body size suggests negative effects of pollutants on the development and, subsequently, fitness of this species...
