Previous studies have shown that infaunal deposit feeders may enhance the loss of organic contaminants from sediments. However, the extent to which this occurs as a result of sediment microbial stimulation, porewater flushing, or biotransformation by infauna remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the infaunal polychaete… CONTINUE READING
