Bioavailability of contaminants estimated from uptake rates into soil invertebrates.

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

It is often argued that the concentration of a pollutant inside an organism is a good indicator of its bioavailability, however, we show that the rate of uptake, not the concentration itself, is the superior predictor. In a study on zinc accumulation and toxicity to isopods (Porcellio scaber) the dietary EC
