atrazine and streamside salamanders
Researchers at Penn State and U of Kentucky exposed streamside salamanders to atrazine, a common herbicide, at 3 different concentrations and found that atrazine effects salamander mortality both at initial exposure and much later in life. Salamanders that survived the intial exposure to the atrazine had significantly lower survival 421 days after being exposed. Atrazine and possibly other herbicides may be having larger, long term effects on the environment than previously thought.
