      Since the last Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) effort to review biological effects of the exposure to organohalogen compounds (OHCs) in Arctic biota, there has been a considerable number of new Arctic ...
    • Exposure of juvenile turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) to AgNP-EE2 mixtures: Implications on contaminant bioavailability and plasma steroid hormone levels 

      Farkas, Julia; Salaberria, Iurgi; Styrishave, Bjarne; Stanková, Radka; Ciesielski, Tomasz Maciej; Olsen, Anders Johny; Posch, Wilfried; Flaten, Trond Peder; Krøkje, Åse; Salvenmoser, Willi; Jenssen, Bjørn Munro (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Combined exposure to engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) and anthropogenic contaminants can lead to changes in bioavailability, uptake and thus effects of both groups of contaminants. In this study we investigated effects of ...
    • Relationships between POPs, biometrics and circulating steroids in male polar bears (Ursus maritimus) from Svalbard 

      Ciesielski, Tomasz Maciej; Hansen, Ingunn Tjelta; Bytingsvik, Jenny; Hansen, Martin; Lie, Elisabeth; Aars, Jon; Jenssen, Bjørn Munro; Styrishave, Bjarne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The aim of this study was to determine the effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and biometric variables on circulating levels of steroid hormones (androgens, estrogens and progestagens) in male polar bears (Ursus ...
    • Steroids hormones and persistent organic pollutants in plasma from North-eastern Atlantic pilot whales 

      Hoydal, Katrin Sunniva; Styrishave, Bjarne; Ciesielski, Tomasz Maciej; Letcher, Robert J.; Dam, Maria; Jenssen, Bjørn Munro (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are known to have endocrine disruptive effects, interfering with endogenous steroid hormones. The present study examined nine steroid hormones and their relationships with the concentrations ...
    • Steroids in house sparrows (Passer domesticus): Effects of POPs and male quality signalling 

      Nossen, Ida; Ciesielski, Tomasz Maciej; Dimmen, Malene Vågen; Jensen, Henrik; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Polder, Anuschka; Rønning, Bernt; Jenssen, Bjørn Munro; Styrishave, Bjarne (Journal article, 2016)
      At high trophic levels, environmental contaminants have been found to affect endocrinological processes. Less attention has been paid to species at lower trophic levels. The house sparrow (Passer domesticus) may be a useful ...
