A total of 221 samples of moss belonging to 5 species in 4 families were collected from the Wanshan District, the world third largest mercury mining area, in Guizhou Province, southwestern China, for analysis of total As (tAs) concentrations and As speciation. The results indicated that the tAs… CONTINUE READING
