Bioavailability, accumulation and effects of heavy metals in sediments with special reference to United Kingdom estuaries: a review.
Using mainly United Kingdom estuaries as examples, various factors governing the bioavailability, bioaccumulation and biological effects of heavy metals in sediment-dominated estuaries are reviewed.Expand

The use of the dog-whelk, Nucella lapillus , as an indicator of tributyltin (TBT) contamination
The term ‘imposex’ was coined by Smith (1971) to describe the superimposition of male characters onto unparasitized and parasitized females of gonochoristic gastropods. In Nassarius obsoletus (Say)Expand

The decline of the gastropod Nucella lapillus around south-west England: evidence for the effect of tributyltin from antifouling paints
A survey of the gastropod Nucella lapillus around the south-west peninsula of England has revealed that the incidence of ‘imposex’, the induction of male sex characters in the female, is widespread,Expand

Reproductive Failure in Populations of the Dog-Whelk, Nucella Lapillus , Caused by Imposex Induced by Tributyltin from Antifouling Paints
The development of male characters, notably a penis and a vas deferens, on the female (the phenomenon of ‘imposex’) of the dog-whelk, Nucella lapillus , is described. Three stages are recognized: anExpand

The occurrence and seasonal variation of trace metals in the scallops pecten maximus (L.) and chlamys opercularis (L.)
A comparison has been made between the concentrations of eleven trace metals in the tissues of two species of scallops, Pecten maximus (L.) and Chlamys opercularis (L.), collected from the same areaExpand

Adaptation of the polychaete Nereis diversicolor to estuarine sediments containing high concentrations of heavy metals. I. General observations and adaptation to copper
The concentration of copper in Nereis diversicolor O. F. Miiller is roughly related to the total concentration in the sediment and particularly high concentrations are found where mining pollutionExpand

Adaptation of the Polychaete Nereis Diversicolor to Estuarine Sediments Containing High Concentrations of Zinc and Cadmium
In the first paper of this series (Bryan & Hummerstone, 1971) it was shown that in the estuarine polychaete Nereis diversicolor O. F. Muller the concentration of copper is roughly proportional toExpand

The Absorption of Zinc and Other Metals by the Brown Seaweed Laminaria Digitata
The absorption of zinc has been studied in the brown seaweed Laminaria digitata (Huds.) Lamour., with use of the radionuclide 65 Zn and atomic absorption analysis. No evidence of the regulation ofExpand

Nassarius reticulatus (Nassariidae: Gastropoda) as an indicator of tributyltin pollution before and after TBT restrictions
Between 1984 and 1993, levels of imposex (the induction of male characters including a penis on females) were measured in gastropods Nassarius (Hinia) reticulatus (L.) at localities in south-westExpand

Concentrations of zinc and copper in the tissues of decapod crustaceans
Concentrations of zinc and copper have been measured in 18 species of decapod crustaceans, ranging from freshwater to purely marine species. Although the intake of zinc and copper probably variesExpand
