The occurrance of heavy metals in marine benthic organisms, Cape Evans and Terra Nova Bay
Entry ID: K082_2001_2002_NZ_5

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The distribution of heavy metals (such as Cd, Pb and Hg) in different areas of the Antarctic marine coastal ecosystems along a latitudinal gradient, and at sites characterised by different degrees of human impact were investigated at two sites, including Cape Evans and Terra Nova Bay. At Cape Evans marine samples of benthic organisms including the bivalve mollusc Laternula elliptica, the seastar ... View entire text
