Title:
European Starlings (Sturnus vulgaris): Avian Model and Monitor of Contaminant and Remedial Effects at Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge

Abstract:
The 1988 Remedial Investigation (RI) of Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge (CONWR) indicated that past manufacturing activities had contaminated specific areas within the Refuge with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and various metals. The goal of this project was to provide pre-remediation baseline exposure and effects data on an avian model, the starling, and to provide a benchmark for assessing the effectiveness of remediation. Written by Richard Holbrook and Alan Woolf. (Length: 75 pages)
