Bioaccumulation Dynamics of Arsenate at the Base of Aquatic Food Webs.
Periphyton is an important food source at the base of freshwater ecosystems that tends to bioconcentrate trace elements making them trophically available. The potential for arsenic-a trace element of
Distribution, Speciation and Bioaccumulation of Hg and As in Mariculture Sediments from Dongshan Bay, China
ABSTRACT Hg and As are the major hazardous pollutants in marine sediments due to their high toxicity to benthonic organisms. Understanding the spatial distribution, speciation and bioaccumulation of

Effects of Metal-Soil Contact Time on the Extraction of Mercury from Soils
To investigate the mercury aging process in soils, soil samples were spiked with inorganic mercury (Hg(II)) or methylated mercury (MeHg) and incubated for 2, 7, 14 or 28 days in the laboratory.

Bioavailability of dissolved and sediment-bound metals to a marine deposit-feeding polychaete
TLDR
It is suggested that the establishment of sediment quality criteria must consider sediment as a potentially important source for metal uptake in benthic invertebrates.
Effects of gut chemistry in marine bivalves on the assimilation of metals from ingested sediment particles
Bioavailability and uptake of trace metals by benthic animals are often assumed to be limited by authigenic sulfide minerals because of their low metal solubilities and reactivities under sedimentary
Intestinal Solubilization of Particle-Associated Organic and Inorganic Mercury as a Measure of Bioavailability to Benthic Invertebrates
TLDR
The bioavailability of particle-associated inorganic mercury (HgI) and monomethylmercury (MMHg) was evaluated in vitro using digestive fluid of the deposit feeding lugworm, Arenicola marina, to suggest that sediment-associated MMHg is generally more readily available from sediment for biological uptake.
Bioavailable amino acids in sediments: A biomimetic, kinetics-based approach
TLDR
A biomimetic approach, based on direct incubation with proteolytic enzymes, to measure bioavailable amino acids in sediments found that freezing the sediment led to greater yields of amino acids, which indicated a larger pool of potentially bioavailable substrate protected by some kind of matrix.
Commercially available chemicals that mimic a deposit feeder's (Arenicola marina) digestive solubilization of lipids.
TLDR
A cocktail of sodium taurocholate and BSA was compared to A. marina's solubilization of 12 PAH from four different contaminated sediments and may serve as a surrogate for real gut fluids and allow easier adoption of the in vitro incubation approach to bioavailability testing.
Biodynamic modelling of the bioaccumulation of arsenic by the polychaete Nereis diversicolor
Environmental context Models that explain the uptake and bioaccumulation of an element in an aquatic ecosystem are valuable for predicting its potential ecotoxicity in coastal areas. Arsenic is a
Predicting bioavailability and bioaccumulation with in vitro digestive fluid extraction
TLDR
In vitro contaminant extraction with the digestive fluid assay has potential as a screening tool to predict relative bioaccumulation risk, and has several advantages over traditional tests.
