The total mercury concentrations in four tissues (muscle, intestines, liver and kidney) of aquatic birds (cormorant – Phalacrocorax carbo and great crested grebe – Podiceps cristatus) and Eurasian buzzard (Buteo buteo) were determined by cold vapour atomic absorption spectrometry (CV-AAS) using an Advanced Mercury Analyser AMA 254. The results of the direct CV-AAS analyses of homogenised solid samples were in very good agreement with those obtained by CV-AFS and CV-AAS analyses after acid… CONTINUE READING
