Tapping into Biomarkers. Toxicologists have used biomarkers in certain aquatic contaminant assessments; however, these endpoints have barely been tapped as a valuable resource for informing ecological risk assessments and integrated monitoring. Sharon Hook talks to us about advantages and caveats for using biomarkers in environmental assessments.


Seeking Nominations for IEAM Editorial Board 2015-2017 

Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM) is accepting nominations for appointment to the Editorial Board of qualified experts, particularly in the areas of environmental policy and regulation, human health and ecological risk assessment, chemicals management, environmental impact assessment, life cycle analysis, and sustainability. Appointments are for 3-year terms from 2015 to 2017. Members of the Editorial Board work with IEAM Senior Editors to solicit contributions to the journal and support the peer review of submitted manuscripts. Candidates should be experienced reviewers able to undertake these duties in a timely and responsive manner. Nomination forms can be downloaded from the SETAC journal website at http://newsletters.setac.org/files/ieam-nomination-form.pdf. Send completed nomination forms, along with the candidate’s CV, to ieam_editor@setac.org. Nominations must be received by September 1, 2014. For more information, please contact the IEAM Editorial Office at ieam_editor@setac.org

Monitoring the aquatic toxicity of mosquito vector control spray pesticides to freshwater receiving waters

Pesticides are applied to state and local waterways in California to control insects such as mosquitoes, which are known to serve as a vector for West Nile Virus infection of humans. Pesticides can potentially cause toxicity to nontarget organisms, so the current study was designed to determine whether toxicity testing provides additional environmental risk information beyond chemical analysis in monitoring spray applications. Phillips et al. found that breakdown product of the one of the pesticides accounted for more toxicity than the original pesticide, strongly suggesting that toxicity testing should be done for more than just the active ingredients.
