Exposure-dose-response approach for the assessment of metal contamination in freshwater environments

Exposure-dose-response approach for the assessment of metal contamination in freshwater environments

Project Summary

These studies described the use of exposure (chemistry of abiotic matrices), dose (bioaccumulation and sub-cellular partitioning of metals) and response (impairment of biological systems) approach for the assessment of metal contamination in the freshwater environment using new sentinel freshwater bivalve Hyridella australis to single metal spiked sediments under laboratory controlled conditions.
