Adult earthworms (Lumbricus rubellus), sampled from a metal-contaminated site (Cwmystwyth Cottage) and two reference sites (acidic, Caerf®li; calcareous, Dinas Powys), were maintained on metalliferous Cwmystwyth Cottage soil in the laboratory for up to 90 days. All three populations accumulated Cd, Pb and Zn for at least the ®rst 60 days of laboratory exposure, while Cu and Ca concentrations were maintained fairly constant throughout. The experiment did not prove conclusively that the native… CONTINUE READING
