Potential importance of protozoan grazing on the accumulation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the pelagic food web

Abstract

Experiments were conducted to study the distribution of three selectedpolychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners within the microbial food web attwo different nutrient levels; control and nutrient enriched. The objectivewas to quantify the uptake of PCBs through grazing by protozoa. The14C-PCBs tested were 4-chlorobiphenyl (IUPAC # 3),2,2′,5,5… (More)
