Biostrome communities and mercury and selenium bioaccumulation in the Great Salt Lake (Utah, USA).

Abstract

The Great Salt Lake has a salinity near 150 g/L and is habitat for over 200 species of migratory birds. The diet of many of these birds is dependent on the food web of carbonaceous biostromes (stromatolites) that cover 260 km(2) of the lake's littoral zone. We investigated the biostrome community to understand their production processes and to assess… (More)
