Two bivalve species (Anodonta sp. and Unio pictorum) and two gastropod species (Radix ovata and Viviparus sp.) were tested as bioindicators in moderately metal-polluted Danube River habitats of Vienna. Molluscs, two sediment fractions and water samples were collected between April 1993 and May 1994 at six sampling sites located at five waters in Vienna. The unionid clams were dissected into viscera, gill, mantle, adductor muscle and shell, gastropods into soft body and shell. Analyses of Cd, Pb… CONTINUE READING
