Abstract:

The combined measurement of lead concentration and isotope ratios in organisms used as bio-monitors may provide a sensitive and cost-effective monitoring tool allowing an unambiguous assessment of the source of lead in environmental samples. Data presented here shows that dispersion of trace amounts of orederived Pb produced distinctive Pb isotope ratio changes in seagrass and oysters acting as sentinel accumulators.
