CIESM Workshop Monographs, n°19:
Metal and radionuclides bioaccumulation in marine organisms
This illustrated report is based on a CIESM Research Workshop which took place in late October 2002. The document reviews the current state of knowledge in this active field and offers recommendations for future directions of research. While many of the recommendations are specific to the Mediterranean region, the findings are applicable to other regions as well and will be of interest to marine scientists worldwide. This is one of the first documents anywhere to put together a critical synthesis on metal bioaccumulation in marine organisms that considers analytical, geochemical, and toxicological aspects of metal-biota interactions in the oceans.
This volume, fully illustrated and rich in references, is available in print from our on-line bookstore.
