Effects of polychlorinated biphenyls on pheasant reproduction, behavior, and survival



Effects of polychlorinated biphenyls on pheasant reproduction, behavior, and survival



Journal of Wildlife Management 35(2): 315-319



For 17 weeks 10 cock pheasants (Phasianus colchicus) were given no polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) or capsules containing 25 mg each week. Hen pheasants to which they were mated got no PCB or 12.5 or 50 mg weekly. The larger amount of PCB for hens significantly reduced egg production and the smaller amount tended to. Fertility also was less when the insecticide was given, with a significant interaction between amount given to cocks and amount given to hens.
