Studies on heavy metal accumulation in aquatic macrophytes from Sevan (Armenia) and Carambolim (India) lake systems.
Aquatic macrophytes are unchangeable biological filters and they carry out purification of the water bodies by accumulating dissolved metals and toxins in their tissue. In view of their potential toExpand

Habitat heterogeneity and its influence on benthic biodiversity in oxygen minimum zones
Oxygen minimum zones (OMZs; midwater regions with O2 concentrations <0.5 ml l )1 ) are mid-water features that intercept continental margins at bathyal depths (100–1000 m). They are particularly wellExpand
