Abstract
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 2 brings together the majority of the significant data on bioaccumulation and bioconcentration of the 14 trace metals discussed, which are considered to be of most importance to man and his food organisms. This volume provides a concise reference of baseline data for delineating the background or 'normal' levels of toxic trace metals as well as levels that occur under various pollutant conditions.
