Effect of lead pollution on testate amoebae communities living in Sphagnum fallax: an experimental study.

Abstract

We studied the effects of lead pollution on testate amoebae communities living on Sphagnum fallax by growing this moss under controlled conditions. A progressive series of lead (Pb) concentration was used in the growing solution of the mosses: 0 (control), 625 and 2,500 microgL(-1). The mosses were sampled and analysed for accumulated Pb and testate amoeba… (More)
