This study reports on accumulation of lead, cadmium, copper and zinc in soil, plants and arthropod species in the vicinity of a closed-down lead/zinc smelter with a long history of pollution in Arnoldstein, Austria. Significant site-dependent metal accumulations were measured in most species, increasing in line with site contamination. Within a site, clear species-specific differences were found, even between closely related species. Within some species, developmental-, sex- and/or seasonal… CONTINUE READING
