Table 2: Levels of pollutants in PDV-positive (pos) and PDV-negative (neg) harbour seals separated for blubber and liver (ng/g lipid weight). Levels of pollutants were tested by T-test (s. significant, n.s. not significant) in blubber and liver. Given is the mean and in brackets the standard deviation with the number of available samples for each pollutant group.
