Comments Concerning the National Swedish Contaminant Monitoring Programme in Terrestrial Biota (English)
The present study has been carried out on mandate of and in cooperation with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) according to Agreement 222 0744. By use of liver and muscle of starling as a matrix representing parts of the terrestrial environment, the study will focus on accumulation, profiles and concentrations of some pesticides used in semi-agricultural areas of Sweden as well as the accumulated levels of some metals and ground elements. Flame retardants are materials added or applied to a product to increase its fire resistance. This study focuses on accumulated levels of PBDEs and HBCD. Five phenolic substances were analysed in muscle of starling; 4-tert-octylphenol (OP), nonylphenol, triclosan, bisphenol A and pentachlorphenol (PCP). Finally we screened the great group of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).
