Schwarzbach et al. (2006) linked decreased egg hatchability to mercury contamination in the California clapper rail (Rallus longirostris obsoletus). Mammals There have been a few published studies on mercury concentration and toxicity in mammals. H. Conaway et al. habitats around the estuary showed relatively low mercury concentrations (<1 µg g−1 dry weight tissue) in salt marsh harvest mice (Reithrodontomys raviventris), house mice (Mus musculus), and deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus), although concentrations did reach 4 µg g−1 in house mice at one site; these burdens had no observable effect on health of the mice (Clark et al.

1998; MarvinDiPasquale and Agee 2003). 5 million kg was lost to the environment in placer mining operations throughout California (Alpers et al. 2005; Churchill 2000). Although the bulk of the hydraulic mining sediment reached the estuary near the turn of the 20th century (Hornberger et al. 1999), studies on upstream geomorphology and geochemistry of hydraulic mining sediment show that this is still a pervasive and actively eroding source of contamination (Hunerlach et al. 1999; James 2005; Savage et al.
