- Life history as a source of variation for persistent organic pollutant (POP) patterns in a community of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) resident to Sarasota Bay, FLJennifer E Yordy
Marine Biomedicine and Environmental Sciences Program, Medical University of South Carolina, 221 Fort Johnson Road, Charleston, SC 29412, USA
Sci Total Environ 408:2163-72. 2010..Overall, these results indicate that significant variations in contaminant mixtures can exist within localized populations of bottlenose dolphins, with life history factors such as age and sex driving individual differences...
- Partitioning of persistent organic pollutants between blubber and blood of wild bottlenose dolphins: implications for biomonitoring and healthJennifer E Yordy
Hollings Marine Laboratory, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 331 Fort Johnson Road, Charleston, South Carolina 29412, USA
Environ Sci Technol 44:4789-95. 2010..Additionally, the mobilization of lipid from blubber and concomitant increase in contaminants in blood suggests cetaceans with reduced blubber lipid may be at greater risk for contaminant-associated health effects...
- Tissue-specific distribution and whole-body burden estimates of persistent organic pollutants in the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus)Jennifer E Yordy
Marine Biomedicine and Environmental Sciences Center, Medical University of South Carolina, 221 Fort Johnson Rd, Charleston, South Carolina 29412, USA
Environ Toxicol Chem 29:1263-73. 2010..This unique physiological adaptation should be taken into consideration when assessing contaminant-related health effects in wild cetacean populations...
- Levels of chlorinated, brominated, and perfluorinated contaminants in birds of prey spanning multiple trophic levelsJennifer E Yordy
National Institute of Standards and Technology, Hollings Marine Laboratory, Charleston, SC 29412, USA
J Wildl Dis 49:347-54. 2013..This study demonstrates that birds of prey continue to face exposure to legacy contaminants as well as newly emerging contaminants at levels of concern...
- Complex contaminant exposure in cetaceans: a comparative E-Screen analysis of bottlenose dolphin blubber and mixtures of four persistent organic pollutantsJennifer E Yordy
Marine Biomedicine and Environmental Sciences Center, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina 29412, USA
Environ Toxicol Chem 29:2143-53. 2010..These observations do not necessarily provide direct evidence of endocrine disruption; however, they may indicate an environmental source of xenoestrogenic exposure warranting future research...
