Fracked ecology: Response of aquatic trophic structure and mercury biomagnification dynamics in the Marcellus Shale Formation

The results of this study suggest fracking has the potential to alter aquatic biodiversity and methyl mercury concentrations at the base of food webs. Abstract Unconventional natural gas development and hydraulic fracturing practices (fracking) are increasing worldwide due to global energy demands. Research has only recently begun to assess fracking impacts to surrounding environments, and …
