Cadmium bioaccumulation in tubificid oligochaetes in relation to metal vertical distribution in sediment and bioturbation intensity was studied during a 56-day experiment with a constant contamination source in the overlying water (20 microg L(-1)). The indoor microcosms simulate a two-compartment biotope with three experimental treatments based on metal exposure and faunal composition: contaminated water column with or without worms and uncontaminated water column with worms.
