Atrazine is a widely used herbicide developed for use in range and pastureland. It is present in many surface waters, contaminating nontarget organisms due to its persistence. In this study, the effects of acute exposure to atrazine on retinoid signaling were investigated...

Zinc levels in artificial seawater are often unnaturally elevated, and thus potentially toxic to aquacultured corals. However, our knowledge of how zinc affects corals is still limited. We tested the effects of zinc supplementation (0, 1, 10 and 100 µg L–1) on...

Background: This paper deals with a non-conventional approach called PCSM model. It was developed to aid in horizontal expansion of aquaculture through utilization of unmanaged ponds for modified extensive aquaculture. This model applies to small lentic water bodies...
