The barnacle Balanus amphitrite as a biomonitor for Cd: radiolabelled experiments.


Radiolabelled experiments were carried out to measure necessary parameters in the development of a biodynamic ecotoxicological simulation model of Cd accumulation in the barnacle biomonitor Balanus amphitrite. The Cd uptake rate constant from the dissolved phase, the Cd assimilation efficiency (AE) from suspended particulate matter (SPM) and the efflux rate… (More)
