Contaminants of emerging concern in the Great Lakes: Science to inform management practices for protecting the health and integrity of wildlife populations from adverse effects: GLRI action plan I, focus area 1, goal 5.Contaminants of emerging concern in the Great Lakes: GLRI integrated phase II group progress report.
Under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, Action Plan I (2010-2014), Focus area 1 (Toxic Substances and Areas of Concern), goal 5 was to – protect the health and integrity of wildlife populations and habitat from adverse chemical and biological effects associated with the presence of toxic substances in the Great Lakes Basin. One of the major aims under goal 5 was to better understand the prevalence of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) in the Great Lakes Basin, and the threats they may pose to wildlife. The research employed a combination of chemical and biological effects monitoring employing in vitro assays, caged organisms exposed in situ, and resident wildlife collections. This report summarizes key findings and major conclusions from a five year interagency research effort and provides details on where the public can access the underlying technical publications and datasets.
