Differences in zinc uptake between snails (Helix aspersa (Muller)) from metal- and bacteria-polluted sites

Differences in zinc uptake between snails (Helix aspersa (Muller)) from metal- and bacteria-polluted sites

Functional Ecology, 56: 787-794

Bacteria in soil samples from a smelting site near Bristol, UK, were less numerous but more resistant to metals and antibiotics than bacteria from a rural site near Reading, UK. The gut flora of Helix aspersa collected from the same sites were similarly different. 65Zn uptake by intestine of H. aspersa decreased with decreasing numbers of soil bacteria.
