Long-term metal exposure is known to be responsible for a large variety of structural and functional changes in periphyton communities which allow these communities to adapt to metal-polluted conditions. This study aimed to link the changes that chronic copper (Cu) exposure causes on the structure and physiology of fluvial biofilms with the efficiency of the river systems in retaining phosphate and Cu. The effects of a chronic Cu exposure on the structure, physiology and induction of Cu… CONTINUE READING
