Low impact of metal pollution on genetic variation in the earthworm Dendrobaena octaedra measured by allozymes



Low impact of metal pollution on genetic variation in the earthworm Dendrobaena octaedra measured by allozymes



Pedobiologia 52(1): 51-60



Numerous previous studies have reported significant effects of metal pollution on earthworm populations. In this study we investigated the effects of heavy metal pollution on the genetic diversity of populations of the earthworm Dendrobaena octaedra sampled along well-defined metal gradients at two different locations.
