Trace metal accumulation in marine invertebrates: Marine biology or marine chemistry?


Trace metal accumulation in marine invertebrates: Marine biology or marine chemistry?



Journal of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom 77(1): 195-210



ISSN/ISBN: 0025-3154

DOI: 10.1017/s0025315400033877

This brief review aims to contrast aspects of the accumulation of trace metals by marine invertebrates that are expected and explicable from the comparative chemical properties of the trace metals themselves, and those apparently affected to a greater degree by the comparative biology of the invertebrate itself. Many features of the uptake and metabolic detoxification of accumulated trace metals follow expected chemical principles such as the Irving-Williams series. Nevertheless marine invertebrates, closely related within taxa, may show different patterns of the accumulation of a particular trace metal, as a result of differences in their biology.
