In 2001, Swedish scientists reported the presence of decabromodiphenylether (DBDE) in peregrine falcons. Subsequently, we have carried out an extensive study on the presence and time trends of DBDE in predatory birds and water birds in order to provide information on this subject for the European environmental risk assessment of DBDE. The UK Environment Agency and the Bromine Science and Environmental Forum (BSEF) initiated the study.
