effects of agricultural pesticides on the immune system of xenopus laevis and rana pipiens.over the last 30 years, there have been mass declines in diverse geographic locations among amphibian populations. multiple causes have been suggested to explain this decline. among these, environmental pollution is gaining attention. indeed, some chemicals of environmental concern are known to alter the immune system. given that amphibians are frequently exposed to agricultural pesticides, it is possible that these pollutants alter their immune system and render them more susceptible to differe ...200415019249
impacts of agriculture on the parasite communities of northern leopard frogs (rana pipiens) in southern quebec, canada.given that numerous amphibians are suffering population declines, it is becoming increasingly important to examine the relationship between disease and environmental disturbance. indeed, while many studies relate anthropogenic activity to changes in the parasitism of snails and fishes, little is known of the impact on the parasites of amphibians, particularly from agriculture. for 2 years, the parasite communities of metamorphic northern leopard frogs from 7 agricultural wetlands were compared w ...200717672926
effects of agricultural pesticides on the health of rana pipiens frogs sampled from the field.there is evidence that over the last 30 years, there have been mass declines in diverse geographic locations among amphibian populations due to disease outbreaks. multiple causes have been suggested to explain this increase in disease incidence. among these, climate changes, environmental pollution and reduced water quality are gaining attention. indeed, some chemicals of environmental concerns are known to alter the immune system. it is possible that exposure to these pollutants could alter the ...201322992987
