Accumulation and partitioning of heavy metals in mangroves: A synthesis of field-based studies

MacFarlane, Geoff R.; Koller, Claudia E.; Blomberg, Simon Phillip


We report the findings of a comparative analysis examining patterns of accumulation and partitioning of the heavy metals copper (Cu), lead (Pb) and zinc (Zn) in mangroves from available field-based studies to date, employing both species level analyses and a phylogenetic approach. Despite mangroves being a taxonomically diverse group, metal accumulation and partitioning for all metals examined were broadly similar across genera and families. Patterns of metal accumulation were also similar...[Show more]
