The studies were designed to provide a basis for developing a relatively rapid mammalian test system for lead, to provide information on intestinal absorption, routes of excretion, and rates of transfer to neonates, and to determine the usefulness of trace-element content of feces, urine, blood, hair, and other tissues for estimating exposure. As rodents are endemic to most areas of interest, the laboratory rat was used as the biological monitor. As resident avian species are also readily available in most areas of interest, a study was undertaken to determine if Japanese quail could function as reliable indicators to track the movement of pollutants from source to receptor.
