This study examines the influences of Cd, Se, and Zn concentrations in ambient water on the assimilation, elimination, and release budget of metals, and the clearance rate of Daphnia magna through ingestion of phytoplankton diets. With increasing ambient metal concentration over two to three orders of magnitude, the assimilation efficiencies (AEs) of Cd and… CONTINUE READING
