Mercury bioaccumulation in dragonflies (Odonata: Anisoptera): Examination of life stages and body regions

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (May 31, 2014)

Dragonflies (Odonata: Anisoptera) are an important component of both aquatic and terrestrial food webs and are vectors for methylmercury (MeHg) biomagnification. Variations in mercury content with life stage and body regions may affect the relative transfer of mercury to aquatic or terrestrial food webs; however, there has been little research ...

EFFECT OF CROPPING SYSTEMS ON HEAVY METAL DISTRIBUTION AND MERCURY FRACTIONATION IN THE WANSHAN MINING DISTRICT, CHINA: IMPLICATIONS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT

by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.  (Jun. 12, 2014)

We studied the concentration of heavy metals and mercury fractionation in contaminated soil for two agricultural land use systems (paddy rice and dry‐land) at the Wanshan Hg mine in China. The average concentration of chromium, lead, copper, nickel and zinc was generally lower in paddy‐rice (PR) soil relative to corn field (CF) soil. Soil under ...
