Bioaccumulation of mercury compounds in two aquatic plants (Elodea densa and Ludwigia natans): actions and interactions of four abiotic factors

Bioaccumulation of mercury compounds in two aquatic plants (Elodea densa and Ludwigia natans): actions and interactions of four abiotic factors

Plants for toxicity assessment: 97-113

The effects of temp. (16-24 degrees C), pH (6 or 8), photoperiod (8-16 h light) and light intensity (1700-2400 lx) on the fate of mercury in aquatic ecosystems was studied by adding 0.27 mg mercury/litre (in the form of HgCl2 or CH3HgCl) twice daily for 28 d to glass tanks containing 11.5 litres water, 3.5 kg sediment and 10 cuttings each of 12-cm long Elodea densa and L. natans.
