State of the world's oceans by Michelle Allsopp( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 207 libraries worldwide
"This book provides a contemporary overview of the world's oceans. It identifies and describes the various problems which continue to threaten environmental quality and biodiversity, ranging from overfishing to the complex changes which could take place as a result of global climate change. Written by scientists working at the Greenpeace Research Laboratories at the University of Exeter in the UK, it is based upon the latest published scientific information. It draws upon the considerable and unique experience of Greenpeace as an organisation working on a diverse array of marine conservation issues at the international scale. The book is designed to serve a wide readership, both as a source of reliable information and as an introduction to the wide literature which exists on marine conservation issues. It is designed to be accessible by those pursuing academic studies as well as those with a more general interest in the factors which are shaping our oceans. As well as identifying the many problems, the book also outlines the ways in which the foundations and building blocks for clean, healthy and biodiverse seas can be provided, especially through the development of a global network of marine reserves."--Jacket
Chlorine and the environment : an overview of the chlorine industry by Ruth Stringer( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 146 libraries worldwide
"This is the first book to examine comprehensively the chlorine industry and its effects on the environment. It covers not only the history of chlorine production, but looks also at its products, their effects on the global environment and the international legislation which controls their use, release and disposal." "Individual chapters are dedicated to subjects such as releases of organochlorines into the environment, and the environmental impact of ozone depletion, providing simple explanations of these complex issues. These are backed up with case studies of landmark events in the history of the chlorine industry- for example the Seveso explosion or the Yusho and Yu-Cheng mass poisonings."

Organochlorine and mercury contamination in United Kingdom seals by M. P Simmonds( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In 1988 and 1989 tissue samples were obtained from the grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) population found in the Dee estuary in the north west of England and from harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) from the populations in the Wash and north east Scotland and analysed for mercury and organochlorine compounds. Adult seals from the Dee estuary were highly contaminated with mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and one animal from the Dee contained traces of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), suggesting the recent use of this banned pesticide. The levels of hexachlorobenzene in the livers of two Dee seals exceeded those in the blubber, possibly indicating liver malfunction or recent exposure. The same relationship was found for hexachlorobenzene in three specimens from the Wash and, in one of these animals, the liver was also more highly contaminated than the blubber with dieldrin and PCBs. Levels of contamination were lower in seals from the Wash and even lower in animals sampled in Scotland, where only dichlorophenyldichloroethylene, the metabolite of DDT, was routinely detected. The toxicological significance of the results is discussed, particularly in relation to the mortality observed in the seal epizootic of 1988
