Abstract

"There have been increasing concerns about the accurance [sic] of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in Missouri aquatic environment. In our study, concentrations of selected EDCs in four Missouri Streams (West Locus Creek and Little Medicine Creek, Northern Missouri, and North Fork of White River and Eleven Point Creek, Southern Missouri) were monitored from June 2003 to Nov 2004. Chemical analysis of representative water sample was performed by solid phase extraction followed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) detection, which allowed identification and quantitation [sic] of pesticides and herbicides, natural and synthetic hormones, phytoestrogens, and industrial chemicals"--Abstract, leaf iii.
