Litter decomposition : a guide to carbon and nutrient turnover by Björn Berg( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Litter Decomposition describes one of the most important processes in the biosphere -- the decay of organic matter. It focuses on the decomposition process of foliar litter in the terrestrial systems of boreal and temperate forests due to the greater amount of data from those biomes. The availability of several long-term studies from these forest types allows a more in-depth approach to the later stages of decomposition and humus formation. Differences between the decay of woody matter and foliar litter is discussed in detail and a different pattern for decomposition is introduced. While teachers and students in more general subjects will find the most basic information on decomposition processes in this book, scientists and graduate students working on decomposition processes will be entirely satisfied with the more detailed information and the overview of the latest publications on the topic as well as the methodological chapter where practical information on methods useful in decomposition studies can be found. Abundant data sets will serve as an excellent aid in teaching process and will be also of interest to researchers specializing in this field as no thorough database exists at the moment." -- Publisher's description

Mixture toxicity : linking approaches from ecological and human toxicology by Cornelis A. M. van Gestel( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the previous key book on mixture toxicity there has been great progress in the development of concepts and models for mixture toxicity, in both human and environmental toxicology. This book presents an overview of developments in both fields, comparing and contrasting their current state of the art to identify where one field can learn from the other. In terms of subject matter, the book progresses from exposure through to risk assessment, at each step identifying the special complications that are typically raised by mixtures (compared to single chemicals)

Scientific Opinion addressing the state of the science on risk assessment of plant protection products for in‐soil organisms( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Following a request from EFSA, the Panelon Plant Protection Products and their Residues developed an opinion on the science behind the risk assessment of plant protection products for in‐soil organisms. The current risk assessment scheme is reviewed, taking into account new regulatory frameworks and scientific developments. Proposals are made for specific protection goals for in‐soil organisms being key drivers for relevant ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes such as nutrient cycling, soil structure, pest control and biodiversity. Considering the time‐scales and biological processes related to the dispersal of the majority of in‐soil organisms compared to terrestrial non‐target arthropods living above soil, the Panelproposes that in‐soil environmental risk assessments are made at in‐ and off‐field scale considering field boundary levels. A new testing strategy which takes into account the relevant exposure routes for in‐soil organisms and the potential direct and indirect effects is proposed. In order to address species recovery and long‐term impacts of PPPs, the use of population models is also proposed.

Scientific Opinion on the state of the science on pesticide risk assessment for amphibians and reptiles( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Following a request from EFSA, the Panelon Plant Protection Products and their Residues developed an opinion on the science to support the potential development of a risk assessment scheme of plant protection products for amphibians and reptiles. The coverage of the risk to amphibians and reptiles by current risk assessments for other vertebrate groups was investigated. Available test methods and exposure models were reviewed with regard to their applicability to amphibians and reptiles. Proposals were made for specific protection goals aiming to protect important ecosystem services and taking into consideration the regulatory framework and existing protection goals for other vertebrates. Uncertainties, knowledge gaps and research needs were highlighted.

Combined effects of chlorpyriphos, copper and temperature on acetylcholinesterase activity and toxicokinetics of the chemicals in the earthworm Eisenia fetida( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: In polluted environments organisms are commonly exposed to a combination of chemicals with different modes of action, and their effects can be additionally modified by natural abiotic conditions. One possible mechanism for interactions in mixtures is via toxicokinetics, as chemicals may alter the uptake, distribution, biotransformation and/or elimination of each other, and all these processes can be affected by temperature. In this study, the effect of temperature (T) on the toxicokinetics of copper (Cu) and chlorpyriphos (CHP), applied either singly or in binary mixtures, was studied in the earthworm Eisenia fetida . The experiments were conducted at 10 or 20°C and the earthworms were exposed to environmentally realistic concentrations of Cu and/or CHP for 16d, followed by a depuration period of 4d in uncontaminated soil. The earthworms were sampled for body Cu and/or CHP concentrations and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity measurements. The CHP degradation rate in the soil was substantially higher at 20°C and in soil treated with Cu. The significant (p<0.05) inhibition of AChE activity in the earthworms exposed to CHP was found. The effect of Cu was significant only at p<0.1. No synergistic effect of the parallel CHP and Cu exposure was found. Four days after transferring the earthworms to uncontaminated soil, the AChE activity recovered to the level observed in control animals. The temperature effect on the toxicokinetic parameters was more pronounced for CHP than for Cu. In the case of CHP, the assimilation rate constant ( k A ) was significantly higher at 20°C than at 10°C, both in CHP-only and CHP+Cu treatments. A similar trend was found for the elimination rate constant ( k E ), but the difference was statistically significant only for non-Cu treatments. In the case of Cu, the general trend of higher k A and k E at 20°C and in the absence of CHP was observed. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Temperature effect on Cu and chlorpyriphos (CHP) kinetics was studied in E.fetida . Chemicals were applied either singly or in binary mixtures. Temperature effect on kinetic parameters was more pronounced for CHP than for Cu. CHP inhibited acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity. No synergistic effect of the parallel CHP and Cu exposure on AChE was found. Abstract : Temperature affected kinetic of CHP but not Cu, and no synergistic effect of combined CHP and Cu exposure on AChE activity was found
Scientific Opinion of the PPR Panel on the follow-up of the findings of the External Scientific Report 'Literature review of epidemiological studies linking exposure to pesticides and health effects'( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: In 2013, EFSA published a comprehensive systematic review of epidemiological studies published from 2006 to 2012 investigating the association between pesticide exposure and many health outcomes. Despite the considerable amount of epidemiological information available, the quality of much of this evidence was rather low and many limitations likely affect the results so firm conclusions cannot be drawn. Studies that do not meet the 'recognised standards' mentioned in the Regulation (EU) No 1107/2009 are thus not suited for risk assessment. In this Scientific Opinion, the EFSA Panel on Plant Protection Products and their residues (PPR Panel) was requested to assess the methodological limitations of pesticide epidemiology studies and found that poor exposure characterisation primarily defined the major limitation. Frequent use of case-control studies as opposed to prospective studies was considered another limitation. Inadequate definition or deficiencies in health outcomes need to be avoided and reporting of findings could be improved in some cases. The PPR Panel proposed recommendations on how to improve the quality and reliability of pesticide epidemiology studies to overcome these limitations and to facilitate an appropriate use for risk assessment. The Panel recommended the conduct of systematic reviews and meta-analysis, where appropriate, of pesticide observational studies as useful methodology to understand the potential hazards of pesticides, exposure scenarios and methods for assessing exposure, exposure-response characterisation and risk characterisation. Finally, the PPR Panel proposed a methodological approach to integrate and weight multiple lines of evidence, including epidemiological data, for pesticide risk assessment. Biological plausibility can contribute to establishing causation

Investigation into experimental toxicological properties of plant protection products having a potential link to Parkinson's disease and childhood leukaemia1( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: In 2013, EFSA published a literature review on epidemiological studies linking exposure to pesticides and human health outcome. As a follow up, the EFSA Panelon Plant Protection Products and their residues (PPR Panel) was requested to investigate the plausible involvement of pesticide exposure as a risk factor for Parkinson's disease (PD) and childhood leukaemia (CHL). A systematic literature review on PD and CHL and mode of actions for pesticides was published by EFSA in 2016 and used as background documentation. The Panelused the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) conceptual framework to define the biological plausibility in relation to epidemiological studies by means of identification of specific symptoms of the diseases as AO. The AOP combines multiple information and provides knowledge of biological pathways, highlights species differences and similarities, identifies research needs and supports regulatory decisions. In this context, the AOP approach could help in organising the available experimental knowledge to assess biological plausibility by describing the link between a molecular initiating event (MIE) and the AO through a series of biologically plausible and essential key events (KEs). As the AOP is chemically agnostic, tool chemical compounds were selected to empirically support the response and temporal concordance of the key event relationships (KERs). Three qualitative and one putative AOP were developed by the Panelusing the results obtained. The Panelsupports the use of the AOP framework to scientifically and transparently explore the biological plausibility of the association between pesticide exposure and human health outcomes, identify data gaps, define a tailored testing strategy and suggests an AOP's informed Integrated Approach for Testing and Assessment (IATA).
