Title: Evaluating the spatial variation of total mercury in young-of-year yellow perch (Perca flavescens), surface water and upland soil for watershed-lake systems within the southern Boreal Shield

Author: Gabriel, Mark C.; Kolka, Randy; Wickman, Trent; Nater, Ed; Woodruff, Laurel.;

Date: 2009

Source: Science of the Total Environment. 407: 4117-4126.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The primary objective of this research is to investigate relationships between mercury in upland soil, lake water and fish tissue and explore the cause for the observed spatial variation of THg in age one yellow perch (Perca flavescens) for ten lakes within the Superior National Forest. Spatial relationships between yellow perch THg tissue concentration and a total of 45 watershed and water chemistry parameters were evaluated for two separate years: 2005 and 2006.

Keywords: yellow perch, total mercury, boreal ecosystem, watersheds, regression modeling
