About this book

This book is a synthesis of recent developments in the field of metal ecotoxicology and features a number of contemporary issues arising from the interaction of metals and biota, such as pathways of assimilation and food chain transfer, metal accumulation and detoxification in humans and biotransformation of elements such as mercury and arsenic.


Mechanisms of metal uptake, Ken Simkiss; interactions between living organisms and metals in intertidal and subtidal sediments, Carlos Vale and Bjorn Sundby; microorganisms and the biogeochemical cycling of metals in aquatic environments, David Barrie Johnson; metal accumulation and impacts in phytoplankton, James G. Sanders and Gerhardt F. Riedel; mercury in aquatic ecosystems, Togwell A. Jackson; arsenic metabolism in aquatic ecosystems, John S. Edmonds and Kevin A. Francesconi; determinants of trace metal concentrations in marine organisms, Murray T. Brown and Michael H. Depledge; metal handling strategies in molluscs, William J. Langton, et al; phylogeny of trace metal accumulation in crustaceans, Philip S. Rainbow; mechanisms of heavy metal accumulation and toxicity in fish, Per-Erick Olsson, et al; influence of ecological factors on accumulation of metal mixtures, Claude Amiard-Triquet and Jean-Claude Amiard; metals and marine food chains, James A. Nott; metal accumulation and detoxification in humans, Hing Man Chan.
