Contents Notes
For four types of common aquatic invertebrate species, feeding behavior and dietary uptake were found to control bioaccumulation of metals. Metal concentrations in animal tissue correlated with metal concentrations extracted from sediments. This finding differs from the common theory that aquatic invertebrate exposures relate to metals concentrations in sediment pore water and that exposures may have a negative correlation with acid-volatile sulfides levels. The paper provides laboratory data for cadmium, nickel, and zinc, but then uses field data to suggest similar results for silver.
