Relative importance of ingested sediment versus pore water as uptake routes for PAHs to the deposit-feeding oligochaete Ilyodrilus templetoni.

Abstract

The relative role of sediment pore water and ingested sediment particles to the total uptake of sediment-associated hydrophobic organic contaminants was examined by estimation from a water-only exposure experiment and from a bioenergetic-based toxicokinetic model utilizing experimentally measured sediment ingestion rates, assimilation efficiencies, and… (More)
