Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Exposure of pair-breeding fathead minnows to the natural steroid, oestrone, resulted in a reduction in spawning frequency and an increased male mortality, at concentrations of 307 and 781 ng/L. There was no evidence of a trans-generational effect on the survival to hatch of the offspring.
