Heavy metals, oxidative stress and immune function in common moorhens from natural and artificial wetlands

AuthorsLópez-Perea, Jhon J.; Vallverdú-Coll, Núria ; Mateo, Rafael
Issue Date2016
CitationSETAC Europe 26th Annual Meeting (2016)
AbstractThe use of the effluent of wastewater treatment plants for the maintenance of wetlands is becoming a common practice in semiarid regions. We suggest that this type of ecosystem could act as an ecological trap, because it concentrates pathogenic organisms and a myriad of chemical pollutants coming from urban and industrial sources. Heavy metals have been reported as a cause of lethal poisoning and diverse sublethal effects by the impairment of biochemical processes.
