Abstract

This paper reports organochlorine (OCL) concentrations in breeding female tree swallows, nestlings, and eggs, and measurements of egg size and eggshell thickness. Our objective was to determine if higher concentrations of OCL chemicals were associated with adult mortality or nesting failure.
