Journal Article
Weldon, L., O'Leary, C., Steer, M., Newton, L., Macdonald, H., & Sargeant, S. (in press). A comparison of European eel Anguilla anguilla eDNA concentrations to fyke net catches in five Irish lakes. Environmental DNA, https://doi.org/10.1002/edn3.91

The European eel, Anguilla anguilla, is classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. To protect what remains of the European eel population, accurate monitoring methods for this species are important. Environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques are gaini...

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. A 26-year time series of monthly samples from the water intake of a power station has been used to analyse the trends exhibited by number of species, total abundance, and composition of the mysids and caridean decapods in the inn...

Evidence for a population collapse of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) in the Bristol Channel (2012)
Journal Article
Henderson, P. A., Plenty, S. J., Newton, L. C., & Bird, D. J. (2012). Evidence for a population collapse of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) in the Bristol Channel. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the UK, 92(4), 843-851. https://doi.org/10.1017/S002531541100124X

A 30-year study of the estuarine population of yellow eel, Anguilla anguilla, abundance in Bridgwater Bay, Somerset, UK, shows that the population number has collapsed. Since 1980, the decline has averaged 15% per year. The abundance of eel in 2009 i... Read More about Evidence for a population collapse of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) in the Bristol Channel.

To what extent are hepatic concentrations of heavy metals in Anguilla anguilla at a site in a contaminated estuary related to body size and age and reflected in the metallothionein concentrations? (2008)
Journal Article
Potter, I. C., Newton, L. C., Bird, D. J., Bird, D. J., Rotchell, J. M., Hesp, S. A., …Potter, I. C. (2008). To what extent are hepatic concentrations of heavy metals in Anguilla anguilla at a site in a contaminated estuary related to body size and age and reflected in the metallothionein concentrations?. Environmental Pollution, 151(3), 641-651. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2007.03.018

We explored how hepatic [metal]s in Anguilla anguilla at a contaminated estuarine site are influenced by body size, age and season, and the extent that [Cu], [Cd] and [Zn]s are reflected in [metallothionein (MT)]s. Although each [metal] and [MT] incr...

Evidence for declining levels of heavy-metals in the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel, U.K. and their spatial distribution in sediments. Environmental Pollution, 143(2), 187-196. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.envpol.2005.12.002

Levels of heavy-metals (Cd, Cu, Cr, Ni, Pb and Zn) in suspended particulate and in surface and subsurface sediments were determined at seven locations in the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel. Sediment metal concentrations were highest at sites clos...

Journal Article
Culshaw, C., Newton, L. C., Weir, I., & Bird, D. J. (2002). Concentrations of Cd, Zn and Cu in sediments and brown shrimp (Crangon crangon L.) from the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel, UK. Marine Environmental Research, 54(3-5), 331-334. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0141-1136%2802%2900163-0

Cd, Zn and Cu levels were determined in sediments and Crangon crangon from 9 sites in the Severn Estuary/Bristol Channel during winter 1999. Metal levels in both shrimp and sediments varied significantly between sites and were related to proximity of...
