Description

Concentration (parts per million) of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) in the yolk lipids of pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis) eggs, from Anacapa, California. Published by Risebrough (1972).

The data PCB are the data as published in Risebrough (1972).

These data are also used in Thas (2010), as table 1, with a difference in the 24th observation (265 in Risebrough and 256 in Thas). PCB1 is the version in table 1 of Thas (2010).

This is a subset of a wider collection of data on Pelecanus occidentalis eggs from Risebrough et al (undated).
