E-M:/ Toxaphene and dioxins in the Great Lakes



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from "MICHAEL W. MURRAY" <MURRAY@nwf.org>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

   Thanks to Karen Jankowski for mentioning the story from the
Aug./Sept. National Wildlife. It discusses research efforts on Lake
Superior to understand the sources and fate of the pesticide toxaphene
in the lake, and profiles U of Minnesota researcher Deb Swackhamer and
others along the way. The story is online at:
http://www.nwf.org/nwf/natlwild/1998/trout.html

    Also, we've put together an extended fact sheet on dioxins in the
Great Lakes, which is available at:
http://www.nwf.org/greatlakes/toxics/dioxfact.html

  (Comments/suggestions are welcomed).
