High impact information on Ecology

  • Ab initio calculations on the mechanism of the oxidation of the hydroxymethyl radical by molecular oxygen in the gas phase: a significant reaction for environmental science [1].
  • OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to examine context effects or provocation ecologies in the daily lives of children with ADHD [2].
  • To address this question, several members of the Hepatotoxicity Working Group of the International Life Sciences Institute Health and Environmental Sciences Institute evaluated the liver gene expression profiles of rats treated with methapyrilene (MP) [3].
  • In November, 1976 the Environmental Sciences Laboratory of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, examined 1029 persons in Michigan for the potential health effects of exposure to PBB [4].
  • The Alternatives to Carcinogenicity Testing Committee of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI) conducted a large-scale, multinational collaborative research program to evaluate several genetically modified mouse assays for assessing the human carcinogenic potential of compounds [5].

Biological context of Ecology


Associations of Ecology with chemical compounds

  • Feathers of selected bird species are used as pollution integrating biomonitors in areas of the German Environmental Specimen Bank. Lead, cadmium and mercury are analysed by Zeeman Solid Sampling AAS in feather vanes of selected bird species with different ecologies [7].
  • Organic films have been found to develop on window surfaces [Diamond et al., Environmental Science and Technology 34 (2000a) 2900] [8].
  • The levels in the peregrine falcon are similar to those found earlier in the Baltic region [Lindberg, P., Sellstrom, U., Haggberg, L., de Wit, C.A., 2004. Higher brominated diphenyl ethers and hexabromocyclododecane found in eggs of peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus) breeding in Sweden. Environmental Science & Technology. 38 (1), 93-96] [9].
  • The 6th International Symposium on Selenium in Biology and Medicine was held in August 1996 in Beijing, China. Selected papers have been published in Biomedical and Environmental Sciences. Some highlights are summarized in this overview [10].
  • Studies of the bionomics of this species included an assessment of the effects of human blood, hamster blood, and sucrose on egg production, viability, and development of the F1 progeny [11].

Gene context of Ecology

  • Some neural network applications in environmental sciences. Part I: forward and inverse problems in geophysical remote measurements [12].
  • Animal studies with different genotoxic or nongenotoxic compounds, as organized for instance within the framework of the International Life Sciences Institute/Health and Environmental Sciences Institute program, are needed to further evaluate the suitability of the XPA model for short-term carcinogenicity testing [13].
  • The cytolysin likely originated as a bacteriocin involved with niche control in the complex microbial ecologies associated with eukaryotic hosts [14].
  • Monsanto-Ceregen's Environmental Science Department (ESD) management has organized a concerted effort to review and change the way our regulatory studies are conducted, especially metabolism studies, with the objective of making the work less expensive in time and money, yet more GLP compliant [15].
  • In August/September 1992 malariometric surveys were conducted simultaneously with sensitivity studies of Plasmodium falciparum to antimalarials, and bionomics of vectors in six villages around Timika (Mwapi, Kaugapu, Hiripau, Pomako, Mapurujaya, Kwamki Lama) [16].
