Atmospheric deposition of mercury (Hg) has been shown to be a significant source of Hg on the landscape (Rada et al. 1989; Swain et al. 1992) and is believed to contribute to increased Hg concentrations in aquatic food webs (Sorensen et al. 1994; Edwards et al. 1999). Methylmercury (MeHg) is the organic, bioavailable form of Hg that accumulates to toxic levels in top-level predators in aquatic systems (Suedel et al. 1994). Although limnological conditions in lakes and rivers can affect Hg… Expand
