On the road from environmental biomonitoring to human health aspects: monitoring atmospheric heavy metal deposition by epiphytic/epigeic plants: present status and future needs
For the past few years, a strong and intensive combined study by analytical scientists and biologists on bioindication and biomonitoring has developed. To achieve a more public-related prophylactic
Arsenic and other trace elements in two catfish species from Paranaguá Estuarine Complex, Paraná, Brazil
TLDR
Fish from the geographic northern rural region (Guaraqueçaba–Benito) display higher As concentrations in the muscle tissues than fish found in the south-western (urban) part of the PEC.
Formation and determination of magnetite particles in biological samples for biomonitoring inputs of Fe and other heavy metals.
The substantial amounts of iron taken up by plants give rise to unstimulated formation of iron oxide particles inside their photosynthetic organs which, given the presence of ample reductants such as
Multilingual education of students on a global scale and perspective—international networking on the example of bioindication and biomonitoring (B&B technologies)
TLDR
The transdisciplinary approach of different and multifaceted scientific areas—starting from biology, analytical chemistry, via health physics, up to social and economic issues—have surpassed mental barriers of individual scientists, so that “production” of straightforward common results related to the influence of material and immaterial environmental factors to the well-being of organisms and human life has now reached the forefront of international thinking.

Integration of Different Bioindication Methods for Chemical Elements: The Multi-Markered-Bioindication-Concept (MMBC)
TLDR
A first approach, including an example for transferring trace elements from food into children via the nursering mother, is given in a so called Multi-Markered-Bioindication-Concept (MMBC).
