  • Samples of the polychaete Chaetopterus variopedatus, worm tubes, commensal crab Polyonyx gibbesi and sediments were collected in eight sites in Todos os Santos Bay, Brazil, in order to evaluate the potential use of the polychaetes and crabs as biomonitors and to assess the relationships and accumulation of trace and major elements in different benthic compartments. Trace and major elements were determined by ICP OES. Organic carbon, total nitrogen and sulfur were determined by CNS elemental… CONTINUE READING
