The aim of this study was to relate the Zn level in the different tissues of Telescopium telescopium to the Zn levels of surface sediment of the gastropod habitat. Zn concentrations were determined in the different soft tissues (foot, cephalic tentacle, mantle, muscle, gill, digestive caecum and remaining soft tissues) of T. telescopium and in the sediments collected from 17 intertidal areas of Peninsular Malaysia, where the snails were collected. Total Zn concentrations and speciation of Zn of… Expand

Significant correlation of Cd, Cu, Pb and Zn in sediments and oysters (Saccostrea cucullata) collected from Qeshm Island, Persian Gulf, Iran
Abstract The relationships are evaluated between the heavy metal species in sediments and the accumulation by the soft tissues of Saccostrea cucullata collected from the northern and southern coastsExpand
Assessment of Cadmium, Copper, Lead and Zinc Contamination Using Oysters (Saccostrea cucullata) as Biomonitors on the Coast of the Persian Gulf, Iran
The levels of Cd, Cu, Pb and Zn in surface sediment, soft tissue and shell of the oyster Saccostrea cucullata collected from three locations, in the intertidal zones of Lengeh Port, northern part of Persian Gulf were measured and showed a positive correlation across Zn, Cd and Cu levels. Expand
Assessment of Anodonta cygnea as a Biomonitor Agent for Copper and Zinc in Anzali Wetland, Iran
Background: Anzali wetland has been subjected to high levels of pollution due to contamination from several industrial sites in addition to agricultural chemicals. Mussels have been widely used forExpand


Correlations between speciation of Cd, Cu, Pb And Zn in sediment and their concentrations in total soft tissue of green-lipped mussel Perna viridis from the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
The present results supported the use of P viridis as a suitable biomonitoring agent for Cd, Cu and Pb. Expand
Accumulation and regulation of heavy metals by the intertidal snail Polinices sordidus
P. sordidus was not considered to be a good bioindicator of copper and zinc contaimination in sediments; however, this species could be used as an indicator of lead and manganese contamination. Expand
Cadmium, copper, mercury, and zinc concentrations in tissues of the king crab (Pseudocarcinus gigas) from southeast Australian waters.
The concentrations of cadmium, copper, mercury, and zinc were determined in muscle (body, claw, and leg), hepatopancreas, and gill tissues of Pseudocarcinus gigas, an exceptionally large, long-lived,Expand
Distribution of lead, zinc, copper and manganese in the marine gastropods, Thais lapillus and Littorina littorea, around the coast of wales
The highest level of lead in both species was found in shell while the distribution of manganese was greater in the shells of Littorina than in those of Thais, suggesting possible source and mineralogy of the shell. Expand
Differential bioaccumulation of heavy metals and organopollutants in the soft tissue and shell of the marine Gastropod, Austrocochlea constricta
Austrocochlea constricta (Gastropodia) has the potential to act as a useful biomonitoring system of pollutants in the marine environment. The organism was used in the present study to investigate theExpand
Heavy Metal Accumulation in the Gastropod, Cetithium Scabridum L., from the Kuwait Coast
An in-depth study on various locations along the Kuwait Coast differentiated by the nature of coastal topography, humanhabitation and industrialization was made in relation to the gills of the gastropod, Cerithium scabridum, a bio-indicator of heavy metal pollution, revealed an increase in the accumulation of Cu and Pb in gills, seawater and particulate matter in winter than in summer.

A biomonitoring study: trace metals in algae and molluscs from Tyrrhenian coastal areas.
Metal concentrations detected in algae and molluscs did not show significant differences among all stations studied, and the hypothesis that the Protected Sea Park would be cleaner than the others must therefore be reconsidered. Expand
Use of different soft tissues of Perna viridis a s biomonitors of bioavailability and contamination by heavy metals (Cd, Cu, Fe, Pb, Ni, and Zn) in a semi-enclosed intertidal water, the Johore Straits
Green-lipped mussels, Perna viridis, were collected from the eastern and western parts of the Johore Straits in September 2004 and January 2005. Based on the heavy metal concentrations in theExpand
Distribution of cadmium, lead and zinc amongst the marine sediments, seagrasses and fauna, and the selection of sentinel accumulators, near a lead smelter in South Australia
Although bivalve molluscs contained high concentrations of Cd, Pb and Zn, their contents did not consistently relate to distance from the smelter, suggesting that, except for Pinna bicolor, they are of little value as sentinel accumulators for these metals. Expand
The use of two marine gastropods, Austrocochlea constricta and Bembicium auratum as biomonitors of zinc, cadmium and copper exposure: Effect of mass, within and between site variability and net accumulation relative to environmental exposure
Variation between individuals was the most significant contribution to overall variation in trace metal concentrations, resulting in a positive skewing of trace metal distributions. Expand
