Bioaccumulation of Tetrachlorobiphenyl and Hexachlorobiphenyl Congeners by Yoldia Limatula and Nephtys Incisa from Bedded Sediments: Effects of Sediment- and Animal-related Parameters

Abstract

Sediments from Narragansett Bay (RI, USA) were fortified with two chlorobiphenyl congeners, 2,4,29,49-tetrachlorobiphenyl (IUPAC 47) and 2,4,5,29,49,59-hexachlorobiphenyl (IUPAC 153), and equilibrated for various times up to 30 d to assess the bioaccumulation potential of sediment-sorbed polychlorinated biphenyls by the benthic invertebrates Yoldia limatula… (More)
