Metal contamination in organisms and in sediments from different areas of the Venice lagoon was investigated. The results were used to examine the relationships between metal accumulation in organisms and sediment pollution. Whereas total metal content determination in sediments gave poor indications on metal bioavailability, the approach based on geochemical speciation seemed to represent a more powerful tool in this context.

Abstract

Metal contamination in organisms and in sediments from different areas of the Venice lagoon was investigated. The results were used to examine the relationships between metal accumulation in organisms and sediment pollution. Whereas total metal content determination in sediments gave poor indications on metal bioavailability, the approach based on geochemical speciation seemed to represent a more powerful tool in this context.
