Acute responses of brown mussel (Perna perna) exposed to sub-lethal copper levels: integration of physiological and cellular responses.


This study examined the effect of sub-lethal copper levels on selected physiological and cellular responses of the marine bivalve Perna perna. Animals were exposed to five environmentally relevant concentrations of 12.5, 25.0, 37.5 and 50.0 μg L⁻¹ copper and metal accumulation was found to be significantly increased at the two higher copper concentrations… (More)
