Understanding Factors Influencing Mercury Exposure and Adverse Health

Young gril fishing - Osprey in flight with a fish

Detailed Description

Two overlapping images of a young girl fishing and an osprey in flight with a fish helps illustrate that human and wildlife exposure and toxicological responses to mercury are dependent on factors that operate across global, individual, and molecular scales. Scientists have provided a roadmap for unified research to facilitate a better understanding of human and wildlife health risks from mercury exposure. Photo of young girl fishing courtesy of Mark Brigham, and the photo of osprey was provided by Rebecca Lazarus, USGS.
