Abstract

The following article from Environmental Toxicology, ‘Long-term Copper Toxicity in Apple Trees (Malus pumila Mill) and Bioaccumulation in Fruits’ by Bai-Ye Sun, Shi- Hong Kan, Yan-Zong Zhang, Jun Wu, Shi-Huai Deng, Chun-Sheng Liu and Gang Yang, published online on January 15, 2010 in Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com; DOI: 10.1002/tox.20565), has been retracted by agreement between the authors, the journal Editor in Chief, Dr. Paul Tchounwou, and Wiley Periodicals, Inc. The retraction has been agreed at the request of the authors due to overlap with ‘Copper Toxicity and Bioaccumulation in Chinese Cabbage (Brassica pekinensis Rupr.)’ by Zhi-Ting Xiong and Hai Wang, published in Environmental Toxicology, Volume 20, pages 188–194, 2005.
