Determination of cadmium partitioning in microalgae and oysters: contribution to the assessment of trophic transfer.

Abstract

Alternative methodologies have been applied to the study of cadmium transfer in a food chain: water, microalgae (Skeletonema costatum and Tetraselmis suecica), oysters (Crassostrea gigas). The potential bioavailability of Cd in organisms was assessed through partitioning at the cell or tissue levels, and the predictive value of this method was evaluated by… (More)
