FoodWeb Dynamics and Source/Sink Interaction of Perfluorochemicals in a Minnesota Lake

The purpose of this study is to analyze the perfluorochemical (PFC)   levels of a St. Paul suburban lake via a comprehensive sampling of   the lake's "food web". Researchers will collect soil, sediment,   plant life, as well as the full range of animal species, including   insects, fish, and frogs to build a better idea of how   perfluorochemicals behave and accumulate.    (toxic organics); (toxic organic); (chemical of concern); (chemicals   of concern); (POP's); (POPs); (POP); (persistent organic chemical);   (persistent organic chemicals); (perfluorochemicals);   (perfluorochemical); (PFC); (PFC's); (PFCs); (PFOS's); (PFOSs);   (PFOS); (PFOA); (PFOA's); (PFOAs); (perfluorooctane sulfonate);   (perfluorooctane sulfonates); (perfluorooctanoic acid);   (perfluorooctanoic acids); (perfluorochemical);   (perfluorochemicals); (Minnesota); (food web); (foodweb);   (organofluoride); (organofluorides); (fluorinated surfactants);   (fluorinated surfactant)
