Adverse effects of environmentally relevant dietary mercury exposure in larvae of the southern leopard frog, Rana sphenocephala

Abstract

We exposed larvae of the southern leopard frog (Rana sphenocephala ) to diets supplemented with aufwuchs (periphyton and associate organisms) from control and mercury (Hg) enriched mesocosms combined in proportions intended to mimic mercury concentrations and speciation in aufwuchs observed from aquatic systems contaminated by atmospheric deposition.
