Effect of copper on algal communities from oligotrophic calcareous streams


Effect of copper on algal communities from oligotrophic calcareous streams



Journal of Phycology 38(2): 241-248



ISSN/ISBN: 0022-3646

DOI: 10.1046/j.1529-8817.2002.01114.x

Two sets of experiments were conducted to quantify the effects of chronic copper exposure on natural periphyton in a non-polluted calcareous river in NE Spain. The results of short-term (up to 6 h exposure) experiments corroborated the significance of pH on copper toxicity. Copper toxicity increased when pH was reduced from 8.6 to 7.7, and this was related to the effect of pH on copper speciation (free copper concentration increased from 0.2% to 2.3% of total copper).
