Recent PBMS results highlighted in Brussels

At a recent international conference held in Brussels (SETAC 2017) Richard Shore and Gloria Pereira, presented the work of the scheme.

SETAC  is the pre-eminent meeting for European ecotoxicologists, giving them a chance to discuss their work with fellow scientisits as well as industry and regulatory representatives. We presented work on how a bird’s body condition can affect the amount of pollutants it accumulates, mercury contamination in a range of predatory birds and their eggs, and how we can us the post mortem information we gather to measure the health of raptor populations.

Posters summarising this work can be downloaded from the PBMS website at
