Influence of water quality on the accumulation of methyl (203)mercury in gill tissue of minnow (Phoxinus phoxinus)
1997 (English)In: COMPARATIVE BIOCHEMISTRY AND PHYSIOLOGY C-PHARMACOLOGY TOXICOLOGY & ENDOCRINOLOGY, ISSN 0742-8413, Vol. 118, no 2, 191-197 p.Article in journal (Other scientific) Published
Effects of pH and concentrations of Cl and Ca on the uptake of methyl mercury (MeHg) in the gills of the minnow (Phoxinus phoxinus) were studied. Chloride concentration and pH in the water affect the speciation of MeHg. Ca was included because it affects
