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…

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 coasts

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.

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 for



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.

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 the

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.

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 the

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.

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.
