Transformations of mercury in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber (Crustacea)



Transformations of mercury in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber (Crustacea)



Science of the Total Environment 304(1-3): 269-284



The biological cycle of mercury in the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber was investigated. Testing the possibility of in vivo Hg2+ methylation was divided into two methodologically different parts. Firstly, concentrations of total mercury and MeHg in isopods P. scaber and their environment from a Hg-unpolluted area were measured by the use of validated methods (CV AAS, CV AFS). The data obtained show that the percentage of MeHg in leaves, soil and faeces was less than 1%.
