        Although extensive research, surveillance, and monitoring studies have been conducted on the Great Lakes ecosystem for more than two decades, the presence of toxic substances in the Great Lakes ecosystem continues to be a major issue of environmental concern. This issue was addressed during a symposium and workshop sponsored by the International Joint Commission Author: Marlene S.

In addition, chemicals of emerging concern, such as pharmaceuticals and flame retardants, are now being detected in Great Lakes waters and require immediate attention.

urban and agricultural runoff to the Great lakes and its tributaries have contributed toxic substances into the ecosystem, resulting in major contamination issues.

In most cases, the contamination is introduced in the tributaries which, via sediment transport and erosion mechanisms, contribute to contamination of the Great Lakes proper. Where wildlife is concerned, according to the Great Lakes Information Network, toxic pollutants can alter the genetic makeup of an organism, with studies revealing that the aquatic birds, cormorants, have previously suffered from cross-billed syndrome at rates 42% times the natural occurrence.

The environmental impacts of urbanization, trade, industrialization, agriculture, climate change, toxic contaminants and other pressures, are obvious.

Concentrations of historic pollutants are still a concern, mercury levels in some species of Great Lakes fish are stable but are increasing in others.

The Late Great Lakes gives a good history of Native American and European use and abuse (most of the abuse perpetrated by the European folks) of the Great Lakes ecosystem.
