dc.description.abstractWhite footed mice ( Peromyscus leucopus ) inhabiting an area surrounding a pond (Tyler) contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and metals (Cadmium, Zinc, Copper) had whole body burdens of 0.42–4.17 ppm PCBs (mean 2.3 ppm) and animals from a comparison non-polluted site (WCC) had no detectable PCBs. Males and females caught at the polluted site in the winter months were not significantly different in body weight or length when compared to WCC animals, but Tyler animals had significantly increased relative liver, kidney, spleen and adrenal weights. In the summer months, mostly males were caught at both Tyler and WCC sites. Tyler males were significantly lighter than WCC males, and had a significantly increased relative liver weight when compared to the males from the WCC site. In addition, the adult Tyler males had significantly lower relative testis weights. At Tyler there was a significantly smaller proportion of juveniles and subadults in the population than at WCC. Polychlorinated biphenyls levels in the adult Tyler males were significantly positively correlated with relative liver weight, but there were no significant correlations with any of the other structures measured. These results suggest that at the polluted site there is inhibition of reproduction and changes in liver, spleen, adrenal, and testis function.en_US
