Trace metal concentrations in the signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus (Decapoda: Astacidae), and the stonefly Pteronarcys californica (Plecoptera: Pteronarcyidae) along a downstream gradient of the Umatilla River
Snyder, Jennifer L. [2011-04-13]
Metals are a persistent form of freshwater pollution and have been shown to bioaccumulate in aquatic macroinvertebrates through direct contact with contaminated water, sediments, and through consumption of contaminated organisms. This research explored the longitudinal bioaccumulation patterns of 5 common trace metals (Cr, Cu, Zn, Cd, and Pb) in the signal crayfish, Pacifastacus leniusculus, a ...

This report aims at providing stakeholders with a good analysis of the potential impacts of mining development on the Congo Basin forests. It is one of a series of outputs prepared during a two-year exercise to analyze and better understand the deforestation dynamics in the Basin. It presents the main findings of an analysis of the mining potential in the Congo Basin as well as the glob ...

Smith, Ronald T. et al. 
The removal of trace metals from acid mine drainage was studied in four constructed wetlands on abandoned mine lands in southwestern Indiana. The wetlands vary in the constraints of their settings, their design, the materials used in their construction, and their effectiveness at removing metals. Aqueous and sediment samples were collected twice a year at each of sixteen sampling locations. Wa ...
