The needs and priorities in using biological accumulator organisms for monitoring toxic trace metals in plants and animals are analyzed. The toxic trace metals selected for study are antimony, arsenic, beryllium, boron, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, tin, and vanadium. Data on the toxicity to humans, abundance, production, use and emissions of trace elements are presented and sources and pathways to plants and animals listed. Volume 1 of the two volumes evaluates available data for the purpose of selecting biological monitoring organisms to monitor the 14 selected toxic metals, and recommends various organisms for use in national and international monitoring systems and networks. This study is based on the data compilation in Volume 2.
