Toxaphene Hazard Summary Toxaphene was a widely used pesticide on cotton, other crops, and in livestock and poultry. Inmost of its uses were cancelled and inall uses were cancelled in the United States.

The major effect of toxaphene is central nervous system (CNS) stimulation, which results in convulsive seizures. The acute effect of toxaphene and the dechlorinated products that are formed in reducing sediments were determined for two estuarine fish, spot (Leiostomus xanthurus) and white mullet (Mugil curema).The reductively dechlorinated mixture was prepared by incubating toxaphene with anoxic salt marsh sediment for 3 wk and isolating the products, which were analyzed by packed and glass Cited by: To determine if toxaphene residues in edible fish tissue decreased after removal of contaminated sediments from an estuarine site in51 composite samples representing six finfish species.

Ecology of Estuaries represents the most definitive and comprehensive source of reference information available on the human impact on estuarine ecosystems.

The volume discusses both acute and insidious pollution problems plaguing these coastal ecotones. It also provides a detailed examination of the deleterious and pervasive effects of human activities on biotic communities and sensitive.

Effective concentrations were also compared to toxaphene levels in soils suggesting possible and adverse effects on soil biota at some contaminated sites with high toxaphene levels. Acknowledgment This research was supported by Grant Agency of Czech Republic projects GACR /04/P and GACR /03/ and Ministry of Education of the Czech.

Toxaphene adsorbs to soil particles, and may enter waterbodies in this form. Virtually all of the toxaphene in waterbodies is in the particulate and sediment fractions. Toxaphene was also applied directly to soil as an insecticide for agricultural crops.

Fate and Transport of Toxaphene Once toxaphene enters the environment, it breaks down very. In book: Estuarine Ecology, pp The problems of estuarine pollution and management are those dealing with a sheltered environment that acts as a trap for sediment and contaminants, and as.

Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition, covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the environmental impact of fisheries on estuaries and the effects of global climate change on these important ecosystems.

Prepared for OFFICE OF RESEARCH AND MONITORING U.S. Ecology of Estuaries book. Anthropogenic Effects. Ecology of Estuaries. This chapter examines the impact of oil pollution on estuarine and coastal marine waters.

While major oil spills and accidents are perceived by much of the public as a principal danger to estuarine and marine environments, it is the chronic oil pollution associated with.

• estuarine populations and communities are structured both by strong abiotic influences (e.g., salinity gradients) and biotic interactions (e.g., competition, predation, facilitation) • a variety of human actions have caused a large fraction of estuaries to be destroyed (e.g., infilling) or damaged (e.g., pollution).

Neurotoxic effects of toxaphene exposure such as those on behavior and learning have been reported. Technical toxaphene and some individual congeners were found to be weakly estrogenic in in vitro test systems; no evidence for endocrine effects in vivo has been reported.

(Bear Island), Environmental Pollution, /S(02)   Toxaphene, also known as camphechlor, chlorocamphene, polychlorocamphene, and chlorinated camphene, is a manufactured insecticide containing over chemicals. Toxaphene is usually found as a solid or gas. In its original form, toxaphene is a yellow to amber waxy solid that smells like turpentine.

It does not burn and evaporates when in solid form or when mixed with liquids. Ecology of Estuaries book. Anthropogenic Effects.

Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition, covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the environmental impact of fisheries on estuaries and the effects of global climate change on these important ecosystems.

Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology,21– These estuaries are probably the best studied coastal systems for determining effects of low dissolved oxygen on living resources and should provide a basis for predicting effects of low oxygen concentrations on Gulf of Mexico fishes. There are a number of differences between the systems.

This new edition builds upon the strengths of the earlier editions but has been thoroughly revised throughout. It contains a new emphasis on pollution, climate change, conservation and management. The new co-author brings a human impact dimension to the revised book.

Contents. The Estuarine Environment; 2. Life in Estuaries; 3. In practice, marine pollution is often essentially estuarine pollution. To reflect the huge impact of humans on estuaries, and to consider how we may either modify, remove or enrich the estuarine ecosystem, three completely new chapters have been prepared in this edition.

Toxaphene is an insecticide which is currently banned for all uses in the United States. Breathing, eating, or drinking high levels of toxaphene could damage the lungs, nervous system, and kidneys, and can even cause death.

Toxaphene has been found in at least 58 of the 1, National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
