Atmospheric transport of persistent pollutants governs uptake by Holarctic Terrestrial biota

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The atmospheric deposition of PCBs, DDT, and lindane,
governed uptake in terrestrial biota in the Scandinavian
penninsula. Mammalian herbivores and predators as well
as predatory insects contained higher levels of pollutants
at locations where the fallout load was high than at stations
where atmospheric deposition was lower, and the two
variables were significantly correlated.
