Fifteen freshwater samples containing significant concentrations of dissolved organic carbon-[DOC]-were titrated with copper under standardised conditions (pH 6 and 7), and concentrations of Cu(2+)-[Cu(2+)]-were measured with an ion-selective electrode. Measured values of [Cu(2+)], which were in the range 10(-11)-10(-5) moll(-1), were compared with those(More)
Pumice is an extremely effective rafting agent that can dramatically increase the dispersal range of a variety of marine organisms and connect isolated shallow marine and coastal ecosystems. Here we report on a significant recent pumice rafting and long-distance dispersal event that occurred across the southwest Pacific following the 2006 explosive eruption(More)

Large igneous provinces (LIPs) form in both oceanic and continental settings by the emplacement and eruption of voluminous magmas ranging from basalt to rhyolite in composition. Continental flood basalt provinces are the best studied LIPs and consist of crustal intrusive systems, extensive flood lavas and ignimbrites, and mafic volcaniclastic deposits in(More)
Cadmium can elicit the synthesis of thionein in liver cells independent of tissue-organ interactions. The metal diffuses across the plasma membrane and is partitioned between subcellular components in a time dependent manner such that thionein synthesis responds to levels of nonspecifically and specifically bound cytoplasmic metal. Cadmium appears to(More)
